The river gave its name to the Lauwerszee historical and current the Lauwersmeer, where it is thrown.
CoursLauwers is born in south-east from the village from Surhuisterveen. Between Gerkesklooster and Stroobos, it crosses the Canal of the Princess Margriet (name in Plank)/Canal Van Starkenborgh (name in Groningue).
The river gains in importance starting from the confluence with the Oude Vaart, with the locality of Schalkendam . A little further, Lauwers is divided into two branches, the Oude Lauwers or Vieux Lauwers Frise side and the Zijldiep Groningue side. These two branches meet a little in the north of Pieterzijl.
In the north of Munnekezijl, the river is diverted via the Munnikezijlsterried. Beyond Zoutkamp, close to the Friesian lock (or Friese sluis ), Lauwers is thrown in the Lauwersmeer and joined there the Reitdiep.
Lauwers in the Sea of WaddenThe Channel between the islands of Schiermonnikoog and Rottumerplaat is also called Lauwers. One can regard it as the continuation of the river in the Mer of Wadden. Lauwers forming the border between the two provinces, this explains why the island of Schiermonnikoog belongs to the Frise and Rottum with Groningue. The channel which emerges in Lauwers in the north of Warffum calls the Zuidoost-Lauwers ( Lauwers of south-east ).
