Sometimes you don't have to go far to discover something nice and new. My sister and I invited our mum on a short getaway and decided to go to the Northern German Lake District, located between Berlin and the Baltic Sea coast. The biggest lake in the area is called Müritz, which is the largest German lake connected to many smaller lakes in the area, hence it is known as Germany's Lake District. It is the perfect destination if you live either in Berlin (or Hamburg for example) or if you want to add some days out in the country to your Berlin holiday for some peace and quiet. Experience nature, get away from the city noise, relax, unwind, and re-charge. The area is famous for picturesque northern towns, the Great Lakes perfect for swimming, sailing, surfing and fishing, fantastic golf courses, cycling and walking. Definitely worth a visit if you haven't been in a while or never before.
