The Spreewald, about 100 kilometres southeast of Berlin, is a unique landscape. As a result of the last ice age, the Spree divided into an extensive network of watercourses here. A large inland delta with wet meadows and forests and over 1,500 kilometres of watercourses was created.

This area not only provides space for storks, otters or dragonflies, but for many centuries the entire area and its waterways have also been used by people, and small farmsteads have sprung up in a mosaic-like pattern. Traditions, ways of life and work that are closely connected to the near-natural floodplain landscape have been partly preserved until today.

When the waters freeze over in winter, they are a popular destination for skaters.
