Time-honoured castles, gentle hills, dark forests and cool streams in colourful meadows: they give the Hoher Fläming Nature Park in South West Brandenburg its very special charm.
Fläming owes its name to the Flemish people, who settled here as of the 12th century upon invitation by German princes. To this day, the Hohe Fläming is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Germany, making it a paradise for people seeking tranquillity.
The spa town of Bad Belzig with its stone spa is the gateway to the nature park. Castle Eisenhardt, old churches and narrow alleyways provide the town with a medieval flair. This is where numerous walking tours through the nature park start.
It is only 41 minutes by train to Berlin and 31 minutes to Dessau; only 40 kilometres (ca. 25 miles) lie between Bad Belzig and Lutherstadt Wittenberg.
