The Ihle is a small, (today) about 30 km long former tributary of the Elbe in the district of Jerichower Land in Saxony-Anhalt . It rises east of Lübars on the edge of the Fläming . However, there is no direct source, the river arises from several water outlets in the source area. The Ihle is mainly fed by small meadow brooks and seepage ditches, the only notable tributary is the Kammerforthgraben , which flows into the Ihle at the level of the former Jürgensmühle (former fulling mill for cloth making, later fur farm with pond farming - closed after 1990). The river flows through the districts of Hohenziatz and Lüttgenziatz of the city of Möckern , as well as the university town of Friedensau and the town of Grabow , which also belong to Möckern. In the further course the Ihle flows through the district town of Burg and flows there (today) into the Elbe-Havel Canal (also Ihle Canal or Plauer Canal ) . The original course of the river to the Elbe was in the 18th and 19th centuries. Century with the construction of the Ihle Canal, which largely followed its course, lost. The name of the town of Ihleburg , located around 10 km northeast of Burg, still reminds of this old river course.

Up until the 20th century, the river was used intensively for draperies and tannery . The remains of former mills and their dams still bear witness to this today. Numerous place names, such as Jürgensmühle, Bergmühle, Viktoriamühle, etc., attest to this period of economic use. Today the river is economically of no great importance. The only mill that still exists on the river today is the "Zänker" mill in the Gütter district of Burger, which is operated electrically ( wind power plant ).

There are numerous species of fish in the Ihle. Among others: roach , aland , chub , pike and, in the upper reaches, brown trout .
