Excursions

Berlin has a lot to offer, including culture, history and green landscapes. Since the fall of the Wall, it has become possible to discover the versatile surrounding countryside. Brandenburg, the federal state that surrounds Berlin, is a paradise of beautiful green landscapes. The Uckermark, for example, isn’t nicknamed the “Tuscany of the north” for nothing. The diverse landscape features broad lakes and river basins with numerous sporting and recreational areas. The Baltic coast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, which has been Berlin’s bathtub since the Imperial Era, is also only three hours away.
