Cultural Highlights

Brandenburg is renowned as the state of nature, water and cultural heritage. The region is full of palaces and parks, stately homes and gardens. Amongst them is the most famous Palace of Sanssouci. The picturesque castle with its fountains and vineyard terraces is part of Europe’s most significant and extensive park areas that it also hosts the Neue Palais, which is the last large castle complex in Prussian baroque style. Throughout the year, the cultural heritage is highlighted with concerts and performances such as the Potsdam Schlössernacht (night of castles).

The person who designed Sanssouci castle was no one less than Prussian king Frederick the Great himself who would have turned 300 years of age in 2012. Frederick was the happiest during his newlywed life at the castle in Rheinsberg, an imposing town surrounded by lakes of the Ruppin region. If you are interested in the European history Brandenburg will not disappoint you: there are many stunning places ranging from royal palaces, gothic churches and monasteries, to GDR-heritage and industrial culture.

Apart of the palaces and gardens film-making has a long tradition in Brandenburg’s capital. It started in the 1920s when great movie stars like Marlene Dietrich produced movies here in Potsdam-Babelsberg. Today, national and international productions such as Inglourious Basterds by Tarantino are shot in Europe’s oldest film complex.

Health, Active and Nature

As Brandenburg is renowned for its access to open landscape and to water, outdoor activities enjoy a great reputation. Anyone who wants to explore the state by bicycle can choose between ca. 7,000 kilometers of cycle paths along rivers like Havel, Oder, and Spree or through forests: all the routes can be planned to suit personal preferences, physical fitness and time. The topography is ideal for cyclists: Brandenburg mainly offers flat countryside, a number of idyllic nature reserves and a multitude of lakes and rivers. Famous paths include Berlin to Copenhagen, which connects the two capitals ( and the Oder-Neiße path where Europe’s latest meadow landscape awaits you.

Finally, anyone who would like to combine two activities at a time has a smooth run on the “Fläming-Skate”. The wonderfully asphalted Fläming inline skating path leading through “Baruth Urstromtal” and “Niederer Fläming” (the Lower Fläming) is 100km in length and 3m in width offering cyclists and skaters best conditions for intense legwork.

The fascinating waterways of the Spreewald have ceased to be the exclusive preserve of canoeists. A must for every visitor is a punt trip through the idyllic Spreewald or “Venice of Brandenburg”: an atmospheric and secretive labyrinth consisting of thousands of small and larger waterways. Sailing enthusiasts feel perfectly at home on the Scharmützelsee at the traditional spa resort of Bad Saarow. Houseboat fans can travel several hundred kilometres without any need for a driving licence.

Exciting Discoveries in “Prussia’s Arcadia” 2014

Tourists in the State of Brandenburg can experience “Prussia’s Arcadia” in a range of different ways. Following the huge success of the Anniversary Year 300th birthday of King Frederick II, organisers of cultural events in many venues set about arranging new and surprising programmes. Audiences can look forward to the prospect of attending some exciting events celebrating the rich heritage of Prussia. We have only to remind ourselves of “Frederick’s Potsdam”, the major part of which still exists, with the Park of Sanssouci, the moated castle of Rheinsburg, on which Crown Prince Frederick left an indelible mark, the old garrison town of Neuruppin or the Oderbruch which was drained under the King. Events like Potsdam Sanssouci Music Festival in June and Potsdam Night of the Palaces in August are classics Furthermore audiences will be able to enjoy a presentation featuring the history of an unusual equine spectacle. Following the major success of Frederick’s Jubilee celebrations, audiences can now look forward to a new production of the “Le Carrousel de Sanssouci” in front of the New Palace in mid-July. On four evenings riders and their steeds, in authentic costumes and to the accompaniment of Baroque compositions, will be portraying the elevated art of controlling the body and the harmony that can be achieved between man and beast.

The first Federal State Exhibition will Focus on historic links between Prussia and Saxony.
