Prignitz district means historical castles, picturesque river areas, and a well-developed bike route network — not to forget the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the river landscape Elbe Brandenburg.

The district is made for bike tours as routes go along beautiful valleys and through flat country.
Something amazing is happening here… Right in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, south-west of the town of Bad Wilsnack is the village Rühstädt, which serves as home for up to 50 storks in the months from April to September — a one-of-a-kind opportunity for taking photos when you’re here.
But that’s not all… Other large birds can be captured in autumn and early spring in the same broad landscape. Up to 4,000 cranes and up to 100,000 geese and swans are regularly counted here. Fish and eagles circling around round up the picture beautifully.
All in all, the river landscape is one of the biggest tourist attractions of the Prignitz district.
