Wildau is located right on the edge of the March (in German “Mark”) of Brandenburg, so called because it was once situated on the borders of the Holy Roman Empire. The town offers a pleasant atmosphere and is perfect for hiking, cycling, sailing, or just relaxing.
The German writer Theodor Fontane discovered the special qualities of this part of Brandenburg on his hiking expeditions. And it remains special to this day – a place in the country, a rural idyll, a restful place where the spa gardens with their shady trees rub shoulders with the old locomotive factory. The Schwartzkopff estate is an architectural treasure in its own right, and then there is the university and conspicuous numbers of young people, most of them students. The hum of the electric suburban trains and the crossing gate bells make up the authentic soundtrack to which the people of Wildau live their lives, and adds an extra touch to the typical Wildau flair.
