Havelland Land by the river
“Ribbeck im Havelland” is known to many people from a famous poem by the Prussian author and poet Theodor Fontane called “Herr von Ribbeck auf Ribbeck im Havelland", telling the story of the nobleman Ribbeck. Apart from that, the Havelland is rich in legends and poems about palaces and gardens, churches and monasteries, and about the “Cradle of the March” in the cathedral town of Brandenburg an der Havel. In many spots, the Havel River resembles a scenic lakeland. Everywhere, rafts, house boats or canoes are gliding through the water. Germany's first star-gazing park offers an El Dorado for hobby astronomers because nowhere else but here is the sky so pitch-black at night.
