The Havelland - Highlights
The landscape of Havelland is dominated by forests and lakes. It has been shaped by human activities for centuries. The fertile soil of the lowlands was used for agriculture and livestock, while the higher land was used as pasture or wooded. Today, in addition to agriculture, forestry also plays an important role in the economy of this region.
There is a lot to discover. We have selected the best sights and cycling and hiking destinations for you:
