Schwarzenbek is almost synonymous with its local creek which has come to assume the status of a home-grown super star in its own right. Follow it as it winds its way through the Rülauer forest, orchards, meadows, and under train tracks to finally join the Elbe.
All along the way you’ll enjoy wonderful scenic views. In fact, even the railway bridge that goes over it seems ethereal in the morning hours.
Schwarzenbek and its surroundings have more to offer for the whole family. The Butterfly Garden nearby is over 20 years old and is an enchanting destination with its koi ponds, horses, and rabbits.
