Berlin's surrounding countryside is completely different from the big city: characterised by deep forests and numerous lakes. Embedded in the magnificent landscape are many important buildings. Among them, of course, is the World Heritage Site in Berlin and Potsdam with the famous Sanssouci Palace. But great architecture also awaits you in smaller towns: for example, the neo-baroque Ribbeck Castle, the attractive old town of Werder, situated on an island, or the historic barn district in Kremmen. See for yourself on this trip: The countryside around Berlin offers everything you need for a good life or a wonderful holiday.
