EUROPE 2018/2019 DAY 3: Day Trip to Spreewald

[Travel in December 2018 – January 2019]

Today, we will be escaping the busy city, and head out for a greenery, rural yet gorgeous nature getaway. We will be also experience a different side of Germany with little canals and heavily forested nature.

In 1991, Spreewald was named a UNESCO biosphere reserve, over 400 km of natural and man-made waterways.

Waking up early to head to Spreewald for a daytrip!
Feeling exciting just a little worry for the weather because its drizzly 😡
We bought our ticket! This ticket is for maximum 5 person though we only have 2. But the price is cheaper this way then individual ticket. This cost us 31 Euro for 2 pax (if you have 5, its even cheaper as per pax!)
Berlin looks pretty clean and neat. Like the whole train station is pretty!
So, we will have 1 hour odd train ride towards Spreewald. We do packed bananas otw!

Let’s talk about Spreewald

The Spreewald (German for ‘Spree Forest’; in Lower SorbianBłota, i.e. ‘the Swamps’) is a section of the German state of Brandenburg located about 100 km south-east of Berlin. It was the center of the Battle of Halbe at the end of World War II, which included the last major land conflicts between German and Soviet forces. Spreewald was designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1991. It is known for its traditional irrigation system, consisting of more than 200 small canals (called Fließe; total length: 1,300 kilometres or 810 miles) within the 484-square-kilometre (187 sq mi) area. The landscape was shaped during the last Ice Age. (Extract from Wiki)

Is this too wordy for a start? Anyway, I happened to find out about Spreewald when I was researching about day trip out from Berlin. My type of holiday will always have some cafe, some food hunt, some interesting visits as well as day trip too, especially we have a bit more time in Berlin too! 🙂

Do remember to alight at Lübbenau (Spreewald) station, please do not be confuse with Lübben station that comes before it.

We supposed to have our lunch here, but the restaurant was closed.
So, we actually walked around the small town
everything just looks extra pretty
especially there’s no high-rise building.
some arty stuff, that I have no idea too lol
on our way to the main square of Spreewald.

We ordered Kassler and Forelle Mullerin Art for sharing!
