Nature and landscape guides

Gerrmany's third most biggest river, the Elbe, is one of the last near-natural rivers in Central Europe. The Brandenburgian part stretches across 70 river kilometres, from the border to Saxony-Anhalt until right before the gates of Dömitz in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The biosphere reserve Flusslandschaft Elbe-Brandenburg has about 530 km². Therefore, there's quite a lot to discover here. The nature and landscape guides have prepared exciting areas and interesting topics specifically for you.

Insidertipp von Natur- und Landschaftsführer Robert Sommerfeld

Where is your favourite place in the Prignitz?

“The nature stop ‘brackish waters Besandten’ is the perfect place for me. Not only because it is very interesting from a historico-cultural point of view. It emerged as a consequence of a devastating flood and now lies behind the embankment surrounded by reeds and leftover riparian forests where both humans and animals can take a breather and relax. Here you can see white-tailed eagles, red kites and many more feathered friends. If you venture here during night hours, you'll find a gorgeous starry sky in clear nights that's even reflected in the water.”
