Woltersdorf — Germany’s Smallest ‘Tram Town’

The town of Woltersdorf an der Schleuse, just east of Berlin, used to be inhabited by skippers and farmers. Nowadays, it’s become kinda “famous” for being Germany’s smallest town with an own tram.

So getting around Woltersdorf can be quite fun. That tram will take you just about anywhere you want to go. Nice if you’re going to a restaurant, to your hotel, to the supermarket, or “just” to a date. ;-)

These aren’t the only places you can go in town. There are three lakes around Woltersdorf, but it’s the Flakensee that has a boardwalk, a place to rent a boat, and grab an ice cream cone.

If that isn’t one of the world’s most perfect days if I ever heard one. Don’t ya think?

A day playing miniature golf or letting the kids run off some energy at the playground is just as good, too.

Maybe some of you would rather hit up the 25 meter high observation tower for a grand bird’s eye view.

Hey, is that the Berlin TV Tower over there?

It’s probably just the Church of St. Michael, built in 1855. The original church was built in 1555 — but oops, I should have said rebuilt in 1945 — after it was bombed during World War II.

The reconstructed church isn’t the only remnants of the 20th century, right on Berliner Strasse there’s a Soviet Cemetery and a memorial plaque to the victims of forced labor.

During Woltersdorf’s festivals there’s always a good deal of excitement. Oktoberfest will forever be a fun affair, and the Feuerwehrfest in June can be just as great.

Hmm, what other festivals does this Woltersdorf have?

You’re always welcome to the Summer Festival in August, the Tower Festival in November, Carnival (February), Easter festivities, and the Advent Market (1st Advent).

Just remember not to confuse this Woltersdorf with any other — otherwise you’ll miss out on all the town has to offer.
