The Prignitz is actually known for its excellent network of cycle paths, but exploring this unique and multi-faceted cultural landscape also has its appeal with a motorhome. For years, more and more mobile homes have been conquering the idyllic region. What once began with a few attractive parking spaces along the Elbe has blossomed into a network of parking spaces in the middle of historic city centers or tranquil nature. You have come to the right place if you want to enjoy nature and really slow down.
The region has retained much of its history to this day. Idyllic villages with their impressive sacred buildings and medieval towns with historic town centers cross your path. Quite a few old walls tell mystical stories - from the Havelberg bishops, the noble family of the noble gentlemen Gans zu Putlitz, robber barons, Elbe ships and boatmen, healer foresters, brave soldiers, the many storks, wild geese and hard-working beavers.
The Prignitz is one of the most stork-rich regions in Germany, and not without reason. Several unique natural landscapes such as the UNESCO Elbe-Brandenburg River Landscape Biosphere Reserve, the Kyritz chain of lakes, the Wittstocker “Schmugglerheide” or the Kyritz-Ruppiner Heide invite you to explore. You will be accompanied by the hum of the bees and the silently gliding sea eagles on a tour through the colorful sea of flowers of the Kyritz-Ruppiner Heide. In the evening an almost devout silence settles over the heather: when the call of the goat milkers gives way to the gentle flapping of the bat's wings, a unique starry sky unfolds, which leaves nothing to be desired, especially on the nights of the Perseids with hundreds of shooting stars. In contrast, the Prignitz Elbe landscape in the Elbe-Brandenburg River Landscape Biosphere Reserve is quite different. The Elbe Valley consists of a mosaic of different habitats, from wet to completely dry. In addition to the large river Elbe, which moves about 70 kilometers along the western edge of the Prignitz, this includes its numerous tributaries, alluvial forests, bracks, smoke water, floodplains, meadow grassland and moor.
Prignitz is one of the few regions in Germany that offers a unique, regional experience package with a complete landscape of parking spaces, equipped with 27 motorhome parking spaces.
Whether an easy walk through the plain or a longer tour – with little equipment you can be there immediately and discover rivers, lakes, idyllic towns, moors and much more. The hiking trails of the Prignitz lead to special places, to archaeological sensations, rivers or moorland.
In the Prignitz the motto is “cycling by numbers”. Around 130 numbered junctions guide cyclists easily and safely through the region on over 1,100 kilometers of routes.
For years, more and more mobile homes have been conquering the idyllic Prignitz for themselves. What once began with a few attractive parking spaces along the river landscape of the Elbe has blossomed into a network of parking spaces in the middle of historic city centers or tranquil nature. They often invite you to linger and are an ideal starting point for cycling and hiking tours.
