      Make A Holiday Rental House in Spree Forest, Germany, Your Home Away From Home

      The area known as Spree Forest is situated in Brandenburg, around 100 km south-east of the German capital of Berlin. This UNESCO recognised area of marshland is said to be a very unique environment in European terms. The River Spree was turned into a delta and deep valleys were gauged out here around 20,000 years ago, as a result of the glacial ice that was abundant here during the chilly ice age. Spending your holidays in the Spree Forest should prove to be a very different type of break, with lots to keep you busy and a number of attractions to visit.

      Things to Do on Holiday in Spree Forest, Germany

      The unique ‘biosphere’ of Spree Forest is probably much larger than you initially thought: at around 474 square kilometres. This means that during your holiday in Spree Forest you can really lose yourself in all of the peaceful, natural tranquillity. The main attractions that are enjoyed in Spree Forest include walking through the maze of trails that criss-cross the area. There are also trails used by cyclists and people keen on mountain biking. However, this part of Germany has affectionately been given the moniker ‘The Venice of Brandenburg’ and when you make note of the sheer number of waterways in this region, it will be easy to see why. These can be explored by way of canoes or organised boat excursions. It is also possible to hire your own boat, but a detailed map should always be taken along with you.
