Discover Bad Belzig and the surrounding area

We got to know Bad Belzig and the surrounding area during a short stay. We used a short stay in Berlin and combined it with a detour to the Hohen Fläming that lasted several days. A good decision, as it turned out, we discovered some tips that we can recommend to connoisseurs. That's how it is in Bad Belzig Castle Eisenhardt worth a visit. The Bad Belzig Therme offers wellness experiences. Combine all of this with a stay in a pleasant Bad Belzig hotel, where enjoyment and tranquility lure.

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 hot chocolate there that the landlady prepares from real chocolate. I have rarely enjoyed such good hot chocolate. Add a piece of chocolate cake – and life can hardly be more beautiful!


There is not only the Bad Belzig castle, but also the castle courtyard of Schloss Wiesenburg

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.

It's also worth taking a walk on it Kunstwanderweg, which begins in the Wiesenburg Castle Park. From there you can explore the Hohen Fläming region on a circular hiking trail to Bad Belzig. We hiked a small section in the area around Wiesenburg Castle. That's why we were able to get a taste of this world of silence and the vast landscapes that this region has 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.

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.

    1. Dear Anke,

      The Hohe Fläming is a beautiful hiking region with easy trails through a landscape with a wide horizon - just as we like it. It's also worth it for a short break in combination with a trip to Berlin, as we did. Pure contrast, so to speak.

      Best regards,

    1. Dear Victoria,

      You can really relax in the region of the Hohe Fläming. Only enough time you should bring with you.
