Strausberg is located 35 kilometers east-northeast of Berlin on the Barnims plateau, in the midst of a landscape rich in lakes and forests that was shaped by the Vistula Ice Age. Particularly characteristic of the landscape are two glacial gullies to the west of the city, which today form chains of lakes running from south to north. The city center lies on the east bank of the Straussee, the largest of the surrounding lakes, including the Bötz, Ihland and Fängersee lakes. Partial areas of the Hohenstein district are part of the Märkische Schweiz nature park.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strausberg
