Travel in a relaxed manner to Oranienburg on the outskirts of the capital Berlin. Welcome to the Ruppiner Land, which already inspired Theodor Fontane. Was it because of the enchanting Oranienburg Palace, which has towered over the city since 1651 and today, as the oldest baroque palace complex in all of Brandenburg, invites visitors to visit? At the vast forests, rustic canals and deep blue lakes, which convey a unique flair right next to the city? Or the lively capital of Berlin, which is only a short S-Bahn ride away? It doesn't matter whether you want culture, nature, trendy life or relaxation during your afternoon exploration - you are guaranteed to find the perfect place to start your cycling holiday in Copenhagen.
Overnight place: Oranienburg
Highlight of the day: Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum
During the Second World War, more than 200.000 people lost their lives in the immediate vicinity of flowering meadows, which these days frame well-kept single-family homes. In 1936, the Sachsenhausen concentration camp was set up in the small town near Oranienburg. Today there is a memorial here, which shows exhibitions on the life of those who were once imprisoned and on the history of the concentration camp in some of the original camp buildings and building remains.
