Things to do in Brandenburg, Berlin
The area around Lake Rangsdorf makes the perfect day out from Berlin. The lake is huge and peaceful, surrounded by miles of hiking paths and mountain biking routes, which take you through dense forest and forgotten villages. Having discovered the best of Berlin itself, including the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate, the countryside is a perfect contrast. There are also a large number of golf courses accessible from Brandenburg accommodation, with the Motzen and Gross Kientz courses ranking among Germany’s best. The many attractions of Berlin itself are a big reason that Brandenburg apartments are in such high demand throughout the year. There are events and festivals throughout the calendar, including the Festage in February, the JazzFest of April and the Christmas markets of December. These, plus the many historic and artistic sites of Berlin, mean that you will always have plenty to keep you occupied during your stay in Brandenburg accommodation, regardless of the time of year you visit.
