Fläming holiday rentals are set around a glacially formed ridge in eastern Germany, straddling the federal states of Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt. It’s a region known for its unspoiled, undulating scenery, being sparsely populated and home to farms, meadows and woodland.
The main reason people head for holiday homes in Fläming is to get outdoors and enjoy the fantastic natural scenery. There are a host of ways to do this, but perhaps the favourite is cycling, either on the road or along marked trails. The area is intersected by a number of national and international cycling routes, such as the Elbe Cycling Route, which starts in the Czech Republic and ends on the North Sea Coast. On your bike in Fläming you’ll encounter a pleasing, gently rolling terrain, with a number of interesting historical sites. If you pass through the town of Bad Belzig you’ll be able to admire the impressive Eisenhardt Castle. Also growing in popularity around holiday accommodation in Fläming is Nordic walking, which entails hiking with the help of ski-poles. The FlämingWalk is an ideal route for this activity, and extends for 150 kilometres through a number of natural parks, such as the Mittlere Elbe Biosphere Reserve. Another option would be horseback riding, with stables located in Beelitz and specially marked equestrian routes to follow on guided tours. In the meantime you could also take day trips to the many picturesque old towns in the region – Beelitz, Bad Belzig, Jüterborg and Ziesar are all home to historic medieval town centres. For instance, at Ziesar you’ll be able to visit the eponymous castle, which is one of the few residences of the Bishop of Brandenburg remaining and dates to the mid-10th Century.
