    This rock (Schill-Gedenkstein) is a memorial place for the Prussian hussar Major Ferdinand von Schill. 1809, Major Schill believed that the situation in Brandenburg looked similar scary like the situation of Austria and Westphalia, and that he there for had to come out to fight the French. So for this defense he, with his Hussars regiment, crossed the Havel river. Eventually yet Major Schill & regiment - left alone by their king - died in the fight of Stralsund. This place of memorial sits right above Geltow's Baumgarten Bridge on so called Franzensberg. There's a parking place where visitors can leave their car, and take stairs up the hill.

    Henning von Tresckow (born in Magdeburg January 10, 1901) was a resistance fighter, an opponent of the Nazi Regime yet - in his age of 17 - a Lieutenant of the 1st Garderegiment on foot. Henning von Tresckow considered Hitler's removal as his duty of moral. His and Schlabrendorff's assassination attempt on Hitler failed. From disappointment about the failure of the July 20, 1944 attentat, von Treschkow committed suicide. He died July 21, 1944 in Bialystok.

    Sailing courses are offered (and boats for just to rent) in quiet, pleasant surroundings on the waterfront, in family atmosphere, with a maximum of about 10 students. Great training conditions for high-quality education on boat sailing.
