Michendorf — Little Catchy Things Make Our Lives Precious

The six local parts of Michendorf are just south of the largest city in Brandenburg, Potsdam. There isn’t a whole lot to see here, but what little it does have is quite lovely.

That’s all right, give you plenty of time to eat through town. Please, with all the lakes and rivers through the countryside you’ll be able to dine on locally caught carp, eel, or crayfish.

If seafood isn’t your idea of a good meal, try the potato pancakes. Potatoes and asparagus (the little respected veggie it is) are big crops around here with lots of farms over the area to prove it.

Some of the farms are located in the Nature Park Nuthe-Nieplitz. Even if you don’t want to go farm hopping, the nature park is more than picturesque so keep your camera handy.

After a hearty meal, go see the Michendorf’s Framework Church. It was originally built in 1375 and was rebuilt in 1743. There are two other churches with the same name, known as Feldsteinkirche. The one in Wildenbruch was a 13th century military church; which means that besides having Sunday services it was used to protect villagers from invading outsiders.

I almost forgot about the town’s Paltrock windmill and support mill. They were built back in the early to mid 19th century and still mill corn to this day.

Since the town is close to Potsdam, you can find a Michendorf hotel here for less money than what you’ll pay in the big city. The Gasthof Zur Linde is one of the town’s charming hotels with a golf course, spa services, and some water sports. You’ll find it on Kunersdorfer Stra├če 1 in Wildenbruch.

The Tryp Potsdam Michendorf Hotel is along the Berliner Ring and easily accessible from both Potsdam and Berlin. Because of its location, its a good place to stay and still be able to visit the whole area.

There might not be a lot to see in the area of Michendorf, but you’ll find nice hotels, good food, and a pretty countryside. That’s good enough for me!
