Tipp for explorer from nature guide André Kienast

I see the starry sky …

“When the red of the dusk makes way for the glow of the moon and the soft flap of the bats supersede the quiet call of the nightjar, an especially impressive view unfolds over the heath. No towns, streets or other artificial light sources disturb the natural night sky. A rapt quiet settles over the landscape while you watch these calm beauties on the night sky.”

Insider tip from nature guide Jürgen Paul

Asked Jürgen Paul: Where is your favourite place in the Prignitz?

“Watching the sun set over a blooming heath in the summer months is an special experience. Fortunately, this piece of natural treasure between Neuruppin, Rheinsberg, Wittstock and Kyritz with its expansive space and the wide-spred heath growth has been preserved. The view of the landscape and nature, being able to 'listen' to the quiet of the heath and letting the mind wander with a glass of wine or a beer is like balm for the soul. Simply taking time to live. Try it out for yourself.”
