Excursion destinations in Berlin
Go on a journey of discovery! Holidays, excursions or a day trip - the Havelland, only 20 minutes by car west of the Berlin city limits, is wonderfully suitable for a holiday on the Havel. The region invites you to go swimming, water hiking, cycling, relaxing or golfing. The unlikely pristine nature in a water-rich environment is perfect for long hikes, where there is always something to discover.
A great excursion destination from the estate is the Sanssouci Park with its castles. The New Palais, Sanssouci Palace, Charlottenhof, the Roman baths, all embedded in a wonderful, centuries-old park. This summer residence of the Prussian kings can be reached in 25 minutes by car.
Visit the nearby neo-baroque Ribbeck Castle with its beautiful park and learn more about Theodor Fontane, who was poetically inspired by the surroundings and the picturesque village ensemble. You can also stroll through the Fontane Museum - a recommended detour into German history and learn everything about pears in the village - the heart of the small town of Ribbeck.

On the trail of the Brandenburg forest pugs
The wood pug was presented to the astonished public for the first time in 1972 by the Brandenburg humorist and honorary citizen Vicco von Bülow, alias Loriot, in the sketch "Animal hour - The wild wood pug". So go on a mysterious search for traces of the 'released' wood pugs in Brandenburg an der Havel. The 50cm tall bronze figures sit, stand, sleep, sniff and lift their legs. Next to the Johanniskirche on the Millennium Bridge, the visitor will find the answer to the riddle on a wooden terrace, why "a life without a pug is possible, but pointless".

Beelitz-Heilstätten treetop path
At a height of up to 40 meters you can let your gaze wander to Berlin and Fläming. The view from the top level of the observation tower, which, like the treetop path itself, can be reached with an elevator, is spectacular. Since 2015 the world war ruin "Alpenhaus" has been bridged by our treetop path. A unique roof forest has been growing on it since 1945. Visitors can explore this and around 65 tree and shrub species in the historic Heilstättenpark from a unique perspective, barrier-free. From above, visitors can see a magical place from a unique perspective and see the charm of the architecture of the sanatoriums and the historical gardens. Surrounded by pine forests, the historical sanatorium area looks like a colorful, sparkling mosaic from above - framed by dark green velvet - a very special excursion!

The Riewendsee offers the best opportunities to practice water sports. For sunbathing and swimming there is a large bathing area with a lawn directly behind the church in Riewend. Other, smaller bathing spots at the beginning and end of the village are connected by a path along the banks. This riverside path is part of the hiking trail from Bagow to Riewend, which the Beetzsee municipality wants to implement. The Heimatverein supports the project and thinks it makes sense to include this hiking trail in a circular path around the Riewendsee near the shore.

Behind the village church of Riewend
The lido offers bathing fun and more for the whole family.

The stork hiking trail around the Beetzsee
Even a short stretch of the 55-kilometer stork hiking trail - which leads around the Beetzsee - is more than worthwhile! In each of the idyllic villages there is a stork's nest, and signs indicate the breeding success. The starting point of the hike is the medieval city of Brandenburg a. d. Havel with the impressive cathedral from the 12th century and imposing churches. Soon you will meet the Beetzsee. At Lünow, an abbreviation directly to Ketzür is possible. Not far from Päwesin you can hike through the nature reserve "Bagower Bruch". The post mill in Ketzür and the huge Swedish linden tree in Brielow are also worth visiting. In addition to the stork nests and the village churches, the varied hiking trail offers beautiful vantage points and scenic features. In almost all places one finds gastronomic offers.
