In winter there is around our Hotel in Frankfurt (Oder) numerous exciting destinations. The Spreewald in particular is also worth a trip in the run-up to Christmas. Wrapped up thickly and with warm blankets, a boat trip with mulled wine on the Spree is a very special experience. This is very atmospheric, especially in the late afternoon when it gets dark. When you walk through the snowy Spreewald, pre-Christmas feelings come up immediately.
You can reach us by car from our Hotel in Frankfurt (Oder) from in about an hour the town of Burg im Spreewald, in the far east of Brandenburg. The place has been a recognized place with healing springs since 2005 and is also worth a visit in winter. But in summer, many guests also set off from here for an unforgettable boat trip through the Spreewald.
In Spreewald there are about 300 watercourses, so-called Fliese. The largest of these is the Große Fliess, which flows through the high forest in the north of the Spreewald. The high forest is around 1,000 km² in size and has been declared protection zone 1 by UNESCO. In addition to the rivers, there are many canals in the Spreewald. This created a unique river landscape.
Castle is in the middle Biosphärenreservat Spreewald. The municipality can look back on a history that goes back to the Middle Ages. Today the place is mainly for his Hotels, restaurants and other tourist facilities known. In addition, since 2005 the SpreewaldTherme. Therefore Burg stands above all for wellness and relaxation. Maybe combine a wintry trip from ours Hotel in Frankfurt (Oder) off to Burg with a relaxing stay in the thermal baths.
Burg also has many buildings and facilities worth seeing. Among other things, the so-called Bismarck Tower is located on the Schlossberg, which was a wall in early history and today serves as a memorial for soldiers who fell in the First World War. There is also a platform open to the public at a height of 28 meters. In the vicinity of the rehabilitation center there is also a spa and legend park with sculptures from the Sorbian legend world. A herb and picking garden as well as a rose garden are also part of the site.
The pretty port of Burg is the ideal starting point for tours on the Spree. In addition to boat trips, tours by paddle boat are also organized. During a boat trip, a ferryman steers the boat across the Spree.
This is also where the lights start from November to Marchboat ride through castle. The tour lasts approximately one hour and departs at 5pm every Friday and Saturday. This allows you to enjoy the evening atmosphere with a cup of mulled wine or tea in your hand. If you want to enjoy the wintry Spreewald a little earlier, you can opt for a mulled wine boat trip.
