Gardens · History Museums · Landmarks
Both a historical region and modern federal state, Brandenburg was once the heart of Prussia. It surrounds but does not officially include the national capital, Berlin. Best known for its wealth of natural attractions, Brandenburg contains three World Heritage-listed biosphere reserves and 11 protected nature parks. A sprawling national park spreads all the way across the border with Poland. The region's pristine natural environments are protected by the nation's strict natural protection policies, which began in the 1990s. An extensive network of park rangers lead tours through the various environments and ensure continued conservation. Be sure to explore the state capital's lavish royal palaces and gardens. Extend your itinerary outside the urban centers if you'd like to enjoy the numerous bike trails, golf courses, canoeing tours, and boat trips.
