To the region

Batzlow is located on the edge of Märkische Schweiz and is an old Slavic village with around 200 inhabitants. The farmstead of today's Urticahof was settled in the 1930s because the landowner Mr. Barfuss was bankrupt. There are scenic spots to discover everywhere. There are several fishing ponds and a wide variety of landscapes around the village.
