    About halfway between Hamburg and Berlin we invite you to depart from beaten tracks and discover treasures of nature, fairy-tale castles and places of magnificent beauty.

Am Kamin Ferienpark Retgendorf Hotels and hosts From hotels in castles to campsites via lakeside spas – the hosts here will give you a warm welcome.

Green and pleasant countryside that stretches between the River Elbe, the Baltic Sea beaches and the Mecklenburg Lake District. Unspoiled and diverse. Surprisingly close to the big cities of Hamburg and Berlin, nature is king here: sometimes, you can hear the leaves in the forests, sometimes the corn in the fields. And there is water everywhere – lakes, rivers and the sea. The landscape is full of magnificent castles and charming old towns.

This area is famous for its unique natural beauty. Gentle hills, hundreds of lakes and big glacial rocks show how powerful the Scandinavian glaciers that once created this idyllic area were. The people who lived and worked here have created a broad cultural landscape. Dukes, lords and ladies, and the church have all left their mark on the area with their avenues and streets, brick Gothic buildings, magnificent royal seats, mansions, forests and manor houses. Agriculture has had a large impact on the face of the region and while the lords, ladies and princes are no longer here, the rural and peasant traditions are still alive. Unspoiled and diverse.
