The small town of Werder, Germany—about 45 minutes from Berlin—is a small historical city west of Potsdam. Located on the banks of the Havel River, the picturesque town is famous for the annual Baumblütenfest in May. The festival, one of Germany's three largest, is free and lasts over 10 days, with fruit wine vendors selling their goods among carnival rides and German food.
Within Werder's city limits is a small island. On this pedestrian-friendly island you can find many beautiful buildings, quaint shops, and green spaces. Climbing the hill, you'll be able to see Brandenburg's many lakes in the distance. And if the weather is clear, you might even spot the Alexanderplatz TV tower on the horizon.
The city is also an officially recognized holiday and spa resort due to its high-quality air and water.
