Nature & greenery

Chorin offers countless opportunities for getting close to nature. There are the woods and lakes of the Schorfheide reserve, the Lower Oder Valley National Park with its riverbank meadows and the picturesque Finow canal. Extensive woodland and wide, open stretches of countryside are just waiting to be explored.
Schorfheide-Chorin biosphere reserve
The Schorfheide-Chorin UNESCO biosphere reserve is a popular recreation area in the north-east of Brandenburg. It comprises two areas with different histories: Schorfheide has remained preserved as a large expanse of forest while Chorin, a curve of glacial moraine, is largely used for agriculture. Overall, this stunning, partly cultivated landscape contains 240 lakes, thousands of stretches of moorland, swathes of forest, meadows and fields, and is home to a rich variety of animal and plant life.
Lower Oder Valley National Park
The Lower Oder Valley National Park is Germany's first riverbank meadow national park. The meadowland stretches for 60km along both the German and the Polish banks of the river Oder, with idyllic riverbank scenery as well as flower-filled dry grassland. The national park is home to many rare species, such as the white-tailed eagle and the black stork. The sight of more than 13,000 cranes descending to their migration resting places in the Oder Valley is an unforgettable experience.
Finow canal
The picturesque Finow canal flows peacefully through the gently rolling hills of the Barnimer Land region. Few other waterways have had such an eventful history as the 400 year old Finow canal. Exploring the canal by historic Finow barge, raft or canoe, and passing through twelve manually operated locks is an unforgettable experience. You can also travel along the well-maintained Treidelweg cycleway and footpath which runs alongside the canal.
