Make a holiday rental in Brandenburg, Germany your home away from home

Brandenburg is a federal state that makes up much of the former East Germany. It’s a varied and often beautiful part of the country, at the heart of which sits the city of Berlin, itself a separate federal state. At holiday rentals in Brandenburg you’ll find history, large expanses of nature and picturesque towns and villages.

Things to do in Brandenburg, Germany

An important destination for Brandenburg self-catering accommodation would be Potsdam, the capital of the state. It sits adjacent to Berlin and much of its historical wealth is preserved as part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Park Sansoucci is absolutely essential, and is a large garden in which you’ll be able to see a number of important buildings. The centre-piece is Sanssouci, which was constructed in the mid-18th Century and served as the summer palace for Frederick the Great. Elsewhere there are the New Chambers, an elaborate guesthouse, Roman-style Baths, grottoes and temples.

To the southeast of the state, and an ideal spot for visitors to Brandenburg holiday rentals in search of unspoiled nature, is the Spreewald. This is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and comprises a low-lying expanse of forest, where the River Spree breaks into smaller waterways that weave through woodland. Many people visit this area to escape city life in Berlin. A great way to enjoy the scenery is to take a guided barge trip – these vessels are propelled by local employees, in a similar fashion to the gondolas in Venice or boats on the River Cam in Cambridge. Alternatively you could hire a kayak or canoe, or explore the forest on foot or by bike.

The Museuminsel is where you’ll find a high concentration of cultural institutions, with the Nueues Museum, Altes Museum, Pergamon Museum and Alte Nationalgalerie, which offer a mix of art and historical artefacts.

Weather in Brandenburg, Germany

My only word of warning would be that the staircase in the house is not suitable for young children as they are unusually steep. Otherwise I would highly recommend this property

The listing description was accurate and Rolf made us very welcome. We were very grateful that when we returned from our day trips, Rolf had very kindly lit the wood burning stove so that the house was beautifully warm. The house is ideally situated for day trips into Berlin - we travelled by train into the city which took approximately 30 mins. We also visited Potsdam which is close by. There's so much to do in Berlin that we will have to return as three days in the city just wasn't enough so hopefully we will be back soon! Lisa, Warren and Charlie Wendover, UK
