January 6, 2018 Madelene Haan

Eberswalde (German pronunciation: [ˌʔeːbɐsˈvaldə]) is a major town and the administrative seat of the district Barnim in the German Federal State (Bundesland) of Brandenburg, about 50 km northeast of Berlin. Population 42144 (census in June 2005), geographical location 52°50′N 13°50′E / 52.833°N 13.833°E / 52.833; 13.833. The town is often called Waldstadt (forest town), because of the large forests around it, including the Schorfheide-Chorin Biosphere Reserve. Despite this fact, Eberswalde was an important industrial center until the German Reunification.

Boat Lift (Schiffshebewerk) Niederfinow

Reviewed By MandM29 - Ashbourne, United Kingdom

Eighty years on and this is still an engineering masterpiece. The adjacent concrete replacement is due to take over - or at least become operational - in the not too distant future but in the meantime make the most of this marvel of German engineering situated about thirteen miles from the Polish border.
We took a boat and actually experienced the 'lift' in action but you don't need to do that and it's certainly cheaper and arguably easier to see what is happening by climbing up to the top level and just watching the boats - including huge Polish coal barges - as they enter the lift.
Plenty of opportunities to 'refuel' on food and drink from kiosks at the bottom providing what, in our experience, was a very pleasant and reasonably priced meal.

Kloster Chorin

Reviewed By justinehresman - Rhinau, France

I've been here many times. It's just beautiful. The village of Chorin itself doesn't have much to offer other than some country charm, but the monastery or ruins of it are worth the 1.8km hike through the woods around the lake. There are occasional Concerts and little markets there, a cafe... and the ruins of a much older church right next to it. The lawn is green, with the red brick of the monastery and the blue skies... GREAT for photos! And if you go at Easter time, make sure to hit the medieval festival Spilwut just 10 minutes on foot from the monastery. Make a weekend of it and stay at one of the two hotels there. Or bike through Chorin and past the monastery to the organic farm Brodowin and then the Schiffhebewerk (like a ship elevator, COOL!) in Niederfinow. Any way you look at it, this is a great place to visit and a good stop as part of a longer excursion.

Burg Falkenberg

Reviewed By Michael B - Roßtal

Die Burg Falkenberg ist mitten im Markt Falkenberg am Fuße des Waldnaabtals. Idylisch gelegen und beindruckend schön restauriert. Leider konnten wir diese nur von Außen besichtigen da eine Führung vorher gesondert organisiert werden muss. Dies werden wir aber noch gelegentlich nachholen. Mit dem Besuch dieser Burg sollte eine Wanderung durch das herrlich idylische Waldnaabtaal und ein Vesper in der historischen Gaststätte Zum Roten Ochsen verbunden werden.

Der FoBoGa gehört zur Hochschule Eberswalde und ist für Naturliebhaber sehr sehenswert. Etwas abseits gelegen, aber mit schönen Pfaden, seltenen Pflanzen und vor allem immer wieder tollen Kulturveranstaltungen. In Eberswalde ein Muss!

Eberswalde Familiengarten

Reviewed By Marinke B - Amman, Jordan

I went to this park with some friend who had a small child of two years old. It is a nice park to walk around in, but I had expected a bit more activities for larger children and grown ups as well.
There are nice Gardens, and large fields that could be used for big events.
It is possible that there was not so much to do, since it was on a random Friday morning after the school holidays.
I did like the short boat ride underground.

I love water towers... been in a few, even slept in one... all are round, but this is so different, four-legged tower, with an amazing view from the top. A piece of art, unusual, fresh, sexy... only for architecture and water lovers!

Luftfahrtmuseum Finowfurt

Reviewed By Me_n_my_rucksack - Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Passionate about the Cold War History and Weaponry ? In particular aviation ? This is the place !
The perfect setting for a Cold War Museum - an ex Soviet Military air base with the museum occupying an old HAS (Hardened Aircraft Site) dispersal. The perfect displays - MiGs and Sukhoi jets, Radar and Missiles.
So whats not to love ?!? Well the whole place is a cross between a world class Aviation Museum dedicated to the Warsar pact in the Cold War - and a scrap caravan park ! Dispersed around the site are random caravans - piles of tyres - random earthmoving equipment and so on. Kind of ruins the atmosphere.
Inside the Hardened Shelters are some very interesting exhibits - one has displays of crashed aircraft from WW2 - tastefully done - an Aviation Archeological display. one shelter has helicopters, one fire engines - one Esat German vehicles etc etc Very interesting displays. In an old building next to the small cafe is a display on the Soviet Air Force which is excellent.
Although the aircraft exhibits are excellent insofar as they are interesting they appear to be poorly maintained and there are some just rotting away.
Could be absolutley fantastic - if it was a bit less scrapyardy......

Lift Flugsport

Reviewed By defroschen - Berlin

Es ist der ultimative Kick, wenn man das Leichtflugzeug selbst fliegen darf. Nach einer Einweisung am Boden, durch Olli, den Piloten, steigt man auf der Pilotenseite des Flugzeugs in die Kanzel. Dort noch eine Erklärung aller Bordinstrumente, dann geht es auch schon los. Den ersten Start übernimmt Olli, aber kaum hebt die Maschine ab, darf man selbst agieren. Erste Linkskurve, leicht das Steuer nach links, die Pedale links durchtreten und sanft legt sich das Flugzeug in die Linkskurve, nun die Rechtskurve, nicht den Horizont aus den Augen verlieren, Nase des Flugzeugs immer hübsch in die Höhe drücken, da wir einen etwas wolkigen Tag erwischt haben, immer darauf achten, das wir nicht in den Wolken verschwinden. über Headset gibt Olli, wenn notwendig Anweisungen. Wir haben unsere Flughöhe erreicht und das Land liegt unter uns. es ist unglaublich. Ich fliege ein Flugzeug. Olli lehnt sich zurück und meint, coole Sache, er kann sich die Landschaft besehen währen ich steure. Unter uns liegen die Seen und Wälder, Die Oder windet sich als graues Band durch die Landschaft, auf der Autobahn quälen sich die Autos in einem langen Stau. Dann sehen wir das Schiffshebewerk, die Schlepper liegen in der Kammer und warten auf ihre Weiterfahrt, während wir, frei wie die Vögel, unsere Bahn ziehen. Viel zu schnell ist die Stunde herum und es wird Zeit zur Landung. In sanften Bogen fliegen wir den Flughafen an und erhalten Landeerlaubnis vom Tower. Drei kleine Hopser und das Flugzeug ist wieder am Boden. Schade, am liebsten Stiege ich sofort wieder ein, aber da warten schon andere Flugbeisterte.
