    Havelberg is a beautiful day destination. The old town of the Handestadt is located on an island, which alone is cool.
    Havelberg is quite small, so the offer of accommodation is available but manageable. Unfortunately, Havelberg no longer has a train station. If you do not want to stay overnight, you can go by bus to the places Glöwen in Brandenburg, Schönhausen (Elbe), Tangermünde or Stendal, which are connected to the railway network. Of course you can cycle there as well.

    Since 2008 Havelberg leads the name "Hanseatic Havelberg". She followed her tradition as an old Hanseatic city, because in addition to Gardelegen, Salzwedel, Osterburg, Stendal, Seehausen, Tangermünde and advertising Havelberg has been Hanseatic city since 1358. In the Rostock directory Havelberg is listed as a member of the Hanseatic League from the beginning. Havelberg was demonstrably part of the Hanseatic League until 1478, ie 120 years long. In the publication of the Brandenburg Main Archive, Volume 38, reference is made to Havelberg's relation to the Hanseatic League (Lieselott Enders, Die Prignitz, History of a Curvey Landscape from the 12th to the 18th Centuries). Attended by the Hanseatic city of Rostock in 1359 at the general Hanseatic day in Lübeck (Eckhardt Müller-Mertens - Investigations into the history of the Brandenburg towns in the Middle Ages,

    (Racing) cyclists beware: On the old town island there are unfortunately a lot of cobblestones.

    Worthwhile goal! Especially at the time of the local horse market there is a lot going on. But the city itself is also beautiful to look at and above all the eponymous Havelberg can be seen from afar as it stands out impressively from the flat landscape. Alls stage and rest area during a tour along the Elbe along highly recommended.

    For centuries, there is the horse market on the first weekend of September. It starts on Thursday with the beer keg and ends on Sunday with a firework. Also worth seeing is the bootskorso a weekend before.

    Beautifully equipped Prignitz Museum in the cathedral, even children can "browse" here in the Middle Ages. Thanks to the Bug 2015, the surroundings of the cathedral are barrier-free, and on the forecourt there is a relief model for the blind from Havelberg in former times

    The house of the rivers as information center of the biosphere reserve Flusslandschaft Mittelelbe is highly recommended with children. Admission is free.

    Yes, the BUGA was there. But even without BUGA Havelberg is worth a trip.
