Although the Uckermark is the least populated district in Germany, it is by no means the most boring. If you want nature, you don't have to do without art, culture, fun and entertainment!
You will search in vain for festival halls, cabaret theatres and noble discotheques, but the region offers many exhibitions worth seeing, small museums and local history studios, places steeped in history and in almost every village a beautiful old wooden, half-timbered or fieldstone church. Music lovers will get their money's worth at the various music weeks, festivals and summer concerts, and art lovers are sure to find something to interest them among the many artists and craftspeople in the Uckermark, who run their own small galleries and also let you look over their shoulders while they work. Of course, the proximity to Berlin also has a positive effect here.
In Malchow, behind Prenzlau, you can lose yourself in the large-scale Melchower Laybrinthpark, only to find yourself again. For children and youngsters there are various puzzles to solve and ways to find. Adults can join in or just relax with a cup of coffee or a cold beer.
The former Dominican monastery in Prenzlau, with its more than 700 years of history itself an important cultural monument, houses a cultural history museum with an extensive exhibition on the Middle Ages as well as a cultural and event centre with changing exhibitions on various topics. The early Gothic Nikolai Church, originally part of the monastery, is also worth seeing.
The city of Prenzlau also offers a well-maintained regional calendar of events on its website. Just have a look, maybe there is something exciting for you.
