Pension Buntspecht is on the Radfernweg “Tour Brandenburg” at the Schorfheide, in walking distance from the train station Chorin and close to the famous Cistercian monastery. Located in the historic village of Chorin, where family Weise inhabit a traditional house with on a long, stretched plot that once used to border onto the former Choriner lake. Behind their traditional red-brick house the Weises have built a very pleasant, modern bed and breakfast. From the community and breakfast room with double height ceiling one enjoys the view

Chorin, only half an hour from Berlin by train, is a place of stress relief. Not only life moves slower here, but the Internet, too. Visitors can leave their big city and television behind.

Pension Buntspecht was built with lots of wood and wooden furniture to modern, high standards and it is pleasantly decorated with great attention to detail. Our bedroom was well tailored and practical, with a modern bathroom. The beds had comfortable, firm mattresses. One window had a mosquito net, and we had no problems with insects.

 

The rooms and common areas were all perfectly clean.

 

Breakfast

Kerstin Weise pots a lot of effort into a personally prepared, rich and varied breakfast. Many ingredients are organic and locally. We enjoyed it very much. Frau Weise also helped us with boiling water to make tea in our thermo.

Walkers and cyclists will welcome the fridge in the common area, stuffed with with soft drinks and beers; guests just mark the drinks they take on on a list.

 

Attractions

The former Cistercian abbey in Chorin is a major visitors attraction. But Eberswalde and its Paul Wunderlich House, the Demeter Ökodorf Brodowin, the Schorfheide, the shallow, warm Lake Grimnitz and elongated, deep Lake Werbellin are worthwhile destinations, too.

Pension Buntspecht is a new, cyclists friendly B&B. During our visit they were building a new covered bicycle shelter, which already offered our bikes protection.

 

Service

Kerstin Weise is very friendly and helpful in a modest and reserved kind of way. She is also very interested in the region and its history. Ask and she will help you plan your excursions.

 

New, small inns in remote, quiet places live on recommendations. We felt at home at Pension Buntspecht and enjoyed our two days stay and hope that you will enjoy yours. We definitely recommend the B&B to visitors seeking peace and tranquility.

The retired Master Electrician Neidigk created in the buildings of his former business, located in Großkühnau, on the bike path left of the river Elbe, near Dessau, a ADFC (German cycle Club) Bed and breakfast (catering for about 2000 overnight stays per year). At first glance it does not look like anything special, but after two nights I can confirm that Pension Neidigk is a very good choice, because the welcoming and enterprising Mr. Neidigk, who always strives for his guests, has rooms, ours was actually a small apartment, thought out well:

  • Mini kitchen with a kettle, two hot plates, sink and a refrigerator, containing beer and water at a price which must be very close to his cost.
  • Double bed, about 1.80 metre wide.
  • Large wardrobe.
  • TV etc.
  • Plenty of electric sockets, so that the modern bicycle travelers can charge their electronics entrained again.
  • Ideal location, just 300 metres from a beautiful lake.
  • Lockable shed for bicycles.
  • Large garden, where we enjoyed our breakfast in the morning sun.
  • Swing chair, where we enjoyed our tea  on a rainy late afternoon.

A spacious double room with shower and mini-kitchen cost € 50 including breakfast.

One can not recommend Pension Neidigh enough. We will be back!

The Külsoer Mill is a place with a special atmosphere. A cozy courtyard, with large vines, a beer garden set in the meadows by the mill pond, a nature experience playground, picnic areas, quaint bars, party rooms and more, make this restaurant and garni a popular destination.

We had a spacious double room with a modern bathroom, plus two beds for children in an area with restricted height due to the sloping ceiling in the area behind the bathroom.

During our stay on a Sunday night, there were no events at the mill. After the delicious dinner in the beer garden, we went to bed early, enjoying the silence of the night in the countryside, 12 km north of the center of Wittenberg.

The clean room had to make even longer stays pleasant: from a TV screen windows with flyscreens, to a shoe closet, as long as the guest cope with the abundance of decorative objects.

The traditional German breakfast with bread rolls, brown bread, jam, cold meats, coffee etc was served in the quaint old tavern (with lots of dark wood furnishings and an old tile stove).

In this family-run hotel and restaurant you can feel the dedication and hard work of three generations. We paid for one night, including breakfast, a very fair 28 € per person in a large double room with en-suite.

The family has received us warmly and served attentive and was always helpful. They have created a very special little hotel and Garni, one can not recommend it highly enough.

Convenient bed&breakfast in Wismar

Rating: **

This is a tiny hotel in a convenient location in Wismar, with easy access to the historic centre and the port, which can be reached in just a few minutes by bicycle. In spite of everything, the place is reasonably quiet.

Wismar is a UNESCO world heritage site.

Our room window opened onto a small, dark courtyard. During the hot days of July, this was pleasant, in the winter it would be rather depressing. The room looked clean, but under the beds unfortunately, there was a layer of dust.

The bathroom was clean, modern and the mechanical ventilation was working swiftly, at least when the door was open. But we had problems with two dead light bulbs.

The landlady Ms. Effenberger was friendly and helpful. She showed us a safe place to park our bikes in the courtyard and even lent us a kettle, so we could prepare tea.

All in all: Reasonably priced at, € 51.45 incl bed tax for a scarcely measured, but well equipped double bed room.

During our stay they were not serving breakfast. We followed their recommendation and were glad to visit “Café Glücklich” (which is German for ‘happy’).
