Brandenburg is a relatively sparsely populated state in eastern Germany. It surrounds Berlin which was originally also part of Brandenburg. The southern part of Brandenburg is partly Sorbian. The Sorbian dialect is also spoken here. The beautiful Spreewald largely determines the character of this state.
The Spreewald is a well-known tourist attraction for the Germans. Numerous side branches of the Spree form a wetland area, where - like from Burg - boat trips can be made.
Punting on the Spree
You can reach the camper place in Schlepzig by crossing two barns. The owner is even a guide in a punt boat on the Spree and is happy to give you a tour of the Spree basin, of course for a fee.
