Welcome to our „city by the river“! Brandenburg an der Havel, 60 km west of Berlin, was given this nickname because the municipal area accounts about one fifth of the water. More than 1000 years of urban history The river Havel connects the three historical island towns with its numerous side arms. The ca thedral island is the oldest settlement and looks back over more than 1000 years of city history, and already in 948 the first bishopric east of the river Elbe was founded here. Brandenburg an der Havel is also the cradle of the eponymous Mark, founded by the Ascanian Margrave Albrecht the Bear, and thus the heartland of later Prussia. The old Town and New Town were both founded in the twelfth century, united in 1715 and proudly show their historical treasures to the discerning visitor. Center of Watersports Take a look at the map and you will quickly understand why Brandenburg an der Havel is considered the gateway to Europe‘s largest contiguous inland watersports area. In the west of the city the Havel extends to a 15 km² lake area, and in the north the Beetzsee lake chain presents one of the most beautiful natural regatta courses in the world. Magnificent countryside In addition, seven nature reserves come together at this point. In this magnificent countryside, which is typical of the Mark, storks, cranes, eagles, herons, kingfishers and beavers are all indigenous. So just visit us here in the former Hanseatic town and you will be able to pursue whatever takes your fancy - water adventures or cycling, walking or hiking, nature or culture.
