Regional Profile: Brandenburg

Babelsberg Castle with fountain

With one third of its area being a nature reserve, over 3000 lakes and only 84 people per square kilometre, Brandenburg is best known for its enchanting landscape and untouched nature. Shaded paths tempt young and old to go on bike trips or walking tours. With its close proximity to the German capital, it is an ideal day-trip destination from Berlin.
