Treasures of nature
Barnim, Uckermark and Westpommern offer some of the most beautiful and interesting countryside in the North German lowland plain. Formed by the Ice Age, a unique hilly countryside determines the picture, rich in forests, meadows, crystal clear lakes and rivers. The unspoilt countryside in such a large expanse is almost unique in Central Europe and offers the best pre-requisites for a relaxing holiday.
The land of lakes and erratic boulders
The north east of Brandenburg is called the land of the 300 lakes, rivers and streams. The most beautiful countryside in this region includes the natural park Uckermark Lakes. Massive glaciers once pushed large stone blocks as far as here which today mark the region as erratic boulders and are the destinations of excursions and walks. You can discover the almost unspoilt nature either on foot or on horseback, cycling or by boat.
Wide paths, beautiful countryside
The Barnim natural park is the first cross-state large conservation area in the region of Berlin - Brandenburg. Hiking trails, bicycle and riding paths lead through forests and meadows to picturesque lakes ideal for bathing, diving and canoeing. The region offers a wide variety for hobby sportsmen and women and nature lovers can find real oases of peace and quiet where they cannot just find excellent relaxation, but also rare plants and animals.
At the beginning there was water
Water means life. Over the centuries a rich natural area has formed on the banks of the historic Finow canal, in which the people can live and work in harmony with nature. It is also the ideal area for active relaxation. Motor yacht skippers, rowers and canoeists are increasingly taking over the Finow canal and from 2000 a historic rafting will be waiting for its guests.
Forests, fields and lakes...
...in the UNESCO biosphere reserve Schorfheide - Chorin
Generations of people left their mark on the various forms of cultural landscape in the biosphere reserve. All around the more than 200 lakes you will find large connected forest areas, as Schorfheide which is legendary among hunters, with its up to 600-year old oaks and many other old trees, in which not just deer, fallow deer, roe deer and wild boars, but also racoons and bighorns feel at home.
