Brieselang’s two local municipalities are so close to Berlin you might think it was actually part of the big city. But, they’re not and I’m not saying it like it’s a bad thing. ;-)
It’s a place where the Town Hall looks more like modern condominiums atop flowerbox outlined little shops. Only the red letters spelling Rathaus give away that it’s actually the town’s central hub.
Oh, you probably won’t care too much for the Rathaus, or being inside at all when you’re here since the surrounding countryside is simply terrific. The Nymphensee is one of the clearest lakes you will ever find (anywhere), so it’s no wonder that it’s a popular bathing area.
Brieselang — Top Areas Of Interest
No swimming is allowed at the Havelkanal, but its many cycle routes and walking paths will keep you otherwise occupied. Follow Karl Marx Road until it leads you to the pedestrian/bicycle only bridge where it’s thought that many a young couple have pledged their devotion. Don’t tell anyone, but I think I have a romantic side; because that’s so sweet!
Don’t worry if you’re single or twenty years of marriage have killed the romance, there are plenty other walking and cycling trails (especially in the Brieselanger Forest) to follow if you want to avoid the mushy lovey-dovey stuff.
Other activities in Brieselang include horseback riding, table tennis, and soccer.
You might not be thinking of romance during the town’s two Harvest Celebrations, more like decorated tractors, horse & buggy rides, and food. Same holds true at the Summer Celebration, Osterfeuer (Easter bonfire) and Christmas Market; just minus all the tractors, though.
The only exception to the “being outside at all costs” rule is when you’re visiting Brieselang’s Heimatmuseum (Local History Museum) or the studio of artist Hans Klakow.
