Part of what I am trying to do here is to make people aware that there are, in fact, very pretty places in Eastern Germany, and particularly in Brandenburg. (Why would people think that this isn´t the case? Read this post.) I am the first one to admit that there´s still lots to do in terms of decent restaurants, and capable doctors, and HIGH SPEED INTERNET, but the landscape? Pretty spectacular. You totally should plan a holiday there! And maybe stay in this lovely little castle that now is a hotel.
We came across this place by accident when we did a little sightseeing tour with my mom who was visiting the other weekend. It was blazing hot this day so we just had some refreshments in the castle´s cafe and then explored the huge park a bit. It´s very beautiful there.
There´s even a fancy little pavilion that overlooks the pond. You could totally pretend to be in some Downton Abbey scene.
The castle is part of a very pretty little village, complete with a restaurant that actually looked good!
God, it was hot that day. Still is, actually. How is the weather where you are? I have to say I am looking forward to autumn. I might be a little sick of the heat and the mosquitoes.
PS: This post hasn´t been sponsored by any tourist agency and/or the hotel. I am just happy to come across beautiful places and want to share them.
