Bad Belzig - our tips
The Steintherme turned out to be the perfect start to a relaxing visit to this region. We had booked a massage in the Bad Belzig Therme on the day of our arrival. After our arrival from the south of Bavaria, a back massage works wonders. So the next day we were ready to explore the Hohen Fläming and the place.
Bad Belzig turned out to be a small town with a well-kept town center. The place of interest is the Castle Eisenhardtthat towers over the city. In addition to a museum, Bad Belzig Castle also houses a hotel within its castle walls. The castle tower is accessible and offers a view of the surroundings of the city. The ring wall is also worth seeing. This is completely preserved. It still surrounds the castle. Their defensive towers are also open to visitors.
But the best the castle has to offer is that Café in the castle courtyard, There is a hot chocolate that the landlady made of real chocolate. Rarely have I enjoyed such good hot chocolate. In addition a piece of chocolate cake - and life can hardly be more beautiful!
Castle Wiesenburg and surroundings
However, we spent the longest part of our first day in the Hohen Fläming in Castle Wiesenburg. Or rather its parks and its surroundings. The castle itself is closed to the public. Today there are apartments in it. However, the park is worth seeing. The castle is reflected in the castle pond. in the Autumn We are also impressed by the deciduous trees, many of which come from exotic regions of the world.
Also worth a walk on the Kunstwanderweg, which begins in the castle park Wiesenburg. From there you can explore the region of the Hohen Fläming on a circular hiking trail to Bad Belzig. We hiked a small section in the area of Schloss Wiesenburg. Therefore we could sniff into this world of silence and the vast landscapes that this region Brandenburg distinguished. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Berlin and are looking for peace, a trip to the Hohe Fläming is worthwhile. And of course also for everyone who wants to complement their Berlin trip with an exploration of the area.
Lehnin Monastery and Reckahn Castle
Im Lehnin Monastery We were also fascinated by the tranquility that you often find in the Hohen Fläming. Monasteries radiate silence. At Lehnin Monastery we also liked how well preserved the Gothic architecture is. The interior of the church is simply furnished. The slender columns draw the viewer's gaze upwards. The jewelry on the masonry, the windows and facades impress from the outside. If you want to visit the monastery, take your time. Sit on a bench in the monastery courtyard or under one of the ancient trees and listen to the calm. This is the only way to really experience the silence and atmosphere of this place.
Only a few kilometers from Lehnin Abbey is finally located Castle Reckahn. The castle is particularly interesting for its exhibition about the von Rochow family. Friedrich Eberhard von Rochow (1734-1805) was a fervent advocate of the Enlightenment. He strove to provide people with training on his estate. In this endeavor he was supported by his wife Christiane Louise. The two of them worked their whole lives to provide the farmers on their land with more than the usual school education. Von Rochow was a patron and also canon, agricultural reformer, educational educator and philanthropist. He is considered the pioneer of modern school systems.
Stay overnight at the Seminarhotel Paulinen Hof in Bad Belzig
We stayed during our stay at Seminar hotel Paulinen Hof * stayed in the tiny village of Kuhlowitz. There we found the perfect place that attuned us to the tranquility and the vast landscapes in the Hohen Fläming. The hotel is located in a former square courtyard. It has only recently been converted into a seminar hotel. Its buildings are grouped around an inner courtyard with a fountain. The hotel is on the edge of the village at the end of a cul-de-sac. That is why it offers its guests a very quiet environment.
A building wing of the hotel is used as a spa. Its wellness area consists of saunas, a fitness area and relaxation areas.
We particularly liked the modern decor of the rooms and the food in the restaurant. A stay at the Paulinen Hof makes a short vacation in the Hoher Fläming Bad Belzig region an experience for connoisseurs. If you are looking for peace and a pleasant environment, this is the place for you.
