Buckow, the only state-approved Kneipp spa in Brandenburg, has been one of the preferred destinations for excursions and recreation east of Berlin for over 100 years. 150 km of marked hiking trails through the enchanting forest and lake landscape of Märkische Schweiz, clear bathing lakes and magnificent vantage points invite you to an unforgettable nature holiday. But also art lovers get their money's worth at the annual literature summer in the Brecht-Weigel-Haus or open-air concerts in the reconstructed castle park.

In the centre of Buckow, where once a border castle, later a mill and then a warm bathhouse stood, a lovingly restored half-timbered house houses the cultural and tourist office Märkische Schweiz. Right behind the house there is a herb garden with Kneipp water treading station and arm diving pool as well as the entrance to the castle park. A proven mix to get to know: nature, culture and recreation. We are open for you every day of the year.
