Nestling in the lowlands of the lower River Havel on the border with Saxony-Anhalt and just 70 kilometres west of Berlin is the largest conservation area of Brandenburg extending over an area of 1,315 square kilometres. The Westhavelland Nature Park links up with the cross-border Middle Elbe Biosphere Reserve, and its boundaries are marked by the little towns of Neustadt/Dosse in the north, Pritzerbe in the south and Friesack in the east. The Nature Park boasts a high degree of ecological significance. The hydrological, geological and sociological conditions of the region are quite specific and are significant in giving distinction to the Nature Park.
