The Slav prince Jaxa von Köpenick is said to have fled from Albrecht the Bear through the Havel in 1157, the year the Mark Brandenburg was founded. When Jaxa was about to drown, he is said to have invoked the previously hated "Christian god" in his distress and, in gratitude for his rescue, hung his shield and horn on a tree and professed Christianity. Since then, the promontory on which he saved himself has been called Schildhorn. So much for the legend.
Today you will find a very beautiful and easy hiking trail on the Havel. The views over the shore belt with its reeds and pollarded willows are magnificent.
