The Teltow-Fläming District derives its name from the two main regions it covers. The first of these is Teltow and consists mainly of agricultural land, while Fläming relates to the wooded chain of hills found here which support so much wildlife.

Indeed, the town of Trebbin makes an ideal entry into the local nature park which currently covers 623 square kilometers (or 241 sq mi) and supports, among other creatures, a breeding population of ospreys.
But it is history where Teltow-Fläming really blossoms. The old town of Jüterbog is well worth a visit as it is almost entirely surrounded by a medieval wall. This wall also features three gateways, two of which show a number of defensive devices. The town also houses a seemingly endless number of churches and St. Nicholas, with its Gothic architecture, is possibly the most interesting of all.
This highly religious theme is reflected elsewhere in the district too. Luckenwalde, for example, was originally occupied by a Cistercian monastery before the town of today was built while Kloster Zinna offers visitors the chance to explore another such monastery, this time dating back to 1170.
