Rathenow is certainly worth a travel. Also lovely called the Town of Optic, it has a huge optic museum, the largest of its kind in Germany. In combination, there’s the Optikpark Rathenow, a theme park that attracts visitors from far away.
Additionally, Rathenow was home of Otto von Bismarck.
The Havelland district is not only the aforementioned town though. It has countless of castles, museums, churches, and parks on offer.
The highlight though is the Naturpark Westhavelland, a huge nature park with an extensive area of moist and birds.
