Dahme, Spree and Oder

The countryside near Berlin is shaped by its countless lakes and endless kilometres of rivers and streams. In fact, the “Seenland Oder-Spree” — the Oder-Spree lake region — has more bodies of water than any other region in Brandenburg.

The rivers Dahme, Spree and Oder offer various opportunities to explore the region by canoe. Herons, dragonflies and kingfishers are prominent companions on the water.

The structure of the landscape has been shaped by the ice ages and is rich in rare plants and animals. Find peace and tranquillity on the hiking trails in our three nature parks. Listen to the sounds of the forests and experience the untouched wilderness.

Leave ample time to visit the monuments, castles, churches and folk museums to learn about the region’s history. One of the highlights is undoubtedly Neuhardenberg Castle, which stands in the middle of an extensive park created by Peter Josef Lenné. Right next to the expansive castle is the Schinkel Church, which can also be viewed.

Another highlight is Neuzelle Abbey, a Cistercian monastery and one of the most important baroque buildings in Northern Germany. The complex comprises several churches, a cloister, cloister garden and a brewery, and plenty of art and culture can be experienced there.

Everyday culture in the Seenland Oder-Spree region

The Seenland Oder-Spree region is relatively rural. In the villages, everyone knows everyone else, and people rely on each other to help out when necessary. Even though they have a reputation for being a bit grumpy and taciturn, the Brandenburg locals can pleasantly surprise you once you get to know them. In rural areas, especially, people harbour an intense love for their hometowns. This affection is reflected in the thoughtfully arranged flower decorations in gardens, front yards and public areas.
