Have fun in Buckow

The Märkische Schweiz Nature reserve is the smallest and oldest (since 1990) in the state of Brandenburg. Its heraldic animal is a dragonfly, one of the many species that populates the diverse landscape with small lakes, pools and rivers, ravines, steep slopes with dry grasslands. This also provides a habitat for about 250 bird species, including the black stork and sea eagle, beavers, otters and many mosquitoes. The main town is Buckow, the only recognised spa town in Brandenburg.
The history of the region around Buckow was shaped by different ice ages.

The Ice Age Garden is idyllically situated next to the Luna Park directly next to Buckow lake. You can reach him during a walk around Buckow lake.

The idea of an open-air theatre was born in Buckow in May 1995. The town had the former tribune buried under the earth, which fell into disrepair in the centre of the city park, restored. For more information:
Gusow Palace is a palace in the community of Gusow-Platkow in Brandenburg. It is on the heritage and memorial list of the state of Brandenburg. Today the palace houses a museum of Brandenburg-Prussian history and a collection of tin figures.
The Schloss Neuhardenberg Foundation was founded in 2001 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of the German Savings Banks and Giro Association (DSGV), which acquired and extensively renovated the complex. The Schloss Neuhardenberg Foundation organises a wide range of theatre performances, readings, concerts, discussions and exhibitions within the castle ensemble and also operates a hotel in the castle with 54 rooms and suites. The foundation was headed by Bernd Kauffmann from 2001 to the end of 2014, and Heike Kramer has headed the institution as Managing Director and Executive Vice President since the beginning of 2015.

Excursions for children

If you are not afraid of heights and want to do something together with your children or other families, you should consider a trip to the climbing forest in Strausberg, 20 km away.
Observatories allow the sky and distant galaxies to be within our grasp. How big is space? Is there life out there? And which stars can you actually see in the current summer sky? These and similar questions will certainly be answered during a visit to the observatory in Strausberg, 20 km away. In good weather, visitors can take a look through the telescope in the observatory and observe the sun, moon, Venus etc. Because it is absolutely dark in the observatory, toddlers can become frightened very quickly. Therefore, normal performances in the observatory that are not specially designed for children should only be attended with children of school age or older.
When the sky is full of clouds, most leisure activities outside are not possible. If you are looking for a destination for such rainy days, you should visit the Schwapp Bad in Fürstenwalde/Spree. The Schwapp bath in Fürstenwalde/Spree is a recommendable swimming pool and offers a 109m Black Hole slide, a 65m tube slide, a mountain and valley slide, a wave stimulator, an infant area with a slide, the dragon palace, a current channel and a sports pool.
This excursion tip proves that you can't only toboggan on ice and snow. On the summer toboggan run in Bad Saarow-Pieskow, 33 km away, an unusual leisure attraction awaits you. Here you can race down the slope on a special track even without snow. This tobogganing run is equally suitable for all age groups. You don't have to be an expert, because summer tobogganing is a safe pleasure if you follow a few simple safety rules.
