This was a perfect trip!
We were looking for somewhere we could stay to give us the opportunity to view the stars and this property stood out online.
The owner was extremely kind and polite when we exchanged emails before our visit- answering my many questions and suggesting they could have the property ready early if it suited our schedule better.
After a simple journey on a direct train from Berlin and then a bus that dropped us about 2 minutes walk from the property (the bus ride was particularly nice, the surrounding landscape is beautiful and you really feel like you are getting away from everything) we were warmly greeted by the landlady.
Then, after a tour of the beautiful apartment and time to settle in, she was thoughtful enough to drive us to a nearby supermarket so we could buy some food for the evening and the next morning. She also asked us if we would be keen to have a short tour of the area. She ended up taking us to a nature reserve, where we watched thousands of crane fly in to sleep for the night, to another local village and along an amazing rough track where we really felt like we were out of the city for a bit!
That evening we enjoyed the comforts of the apartment (big TV, comfortable sofa and good cooking facilities) before heading out to see the stars.
As soon as we were outside we were stunned how many stars we could see and how clearly we could see them. The day had been pretty cloudy and yet we were still treated to a brilliant show. We walked to the outskirts of the village to see them and also got a terrific view from the back garden of the property.
The landlady knows a great deal about the local area and there are even some useful maps and resources in the apartment itself.
I would recommend this place to anyone, thanks to Heike for a brilliant stay!
