    At first it needs to be said that this place is obviously pricey. Given it's not regular to go to some luxury eat out but only for a certain time on a certain occasion, it's defenitive worth the cost! I yet wouldn't say this Restaurant at Resort Schwielowsee is necessarily cooking up fency food but a nice combination of good tasting, solid-traditional meals and unique treats. Probably the keystone of their cooking lies in the yummy soups and fantastic desserts! Dining out there is also about some wonderful atmosphere, in some most lovely environment, with very attentive service provided. No long wait at all!! And also: who doesn't like a waiter to be not just friendly but great looking too?

    Unfortunately this was one of the many locations closed on Christmas Day (and days ahead) in Petzow. - I very much like pan cakes "American style" over "skinny French" crepes yet that creperie spot does look very yummy!!

    Ingredients:
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    Directions:
    1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
    2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
    3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.

    We def. had a hard time to find ways to get real close to any of the lakes like checking on options to take a swim (during spring/summer season later on). Since travel agencies give different informations about that yet, you may check out for yourself. As a matter of fact, the lakes are kept rather private than public - pretty tricky!!

    Theodor Fontane sculpture at Resort Schwielowsee

    by MD2nd Updated Sep 7, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Theodor Fontane, born Dec. 30, 1819, in Neuruppin, Brandenburg — died Sept. 20, 1898, Berlin, began his career as a journalist and wrote books based on his travels before turning to the novel late in life. Before the Storm (1878) is considered a masterpiece of historical fiction. Effi Briest (1895), is one of his several sympathetic treatments of women in circumscribed domestic lives. He is considered the first master of modern German realism.

    He married in 1850, and in the same year his first books of poetry were published. In 1852 he spent the summer in London as correspondent for German newspapers. From 1852 to 1855 he lived in straitened circumstances in Berlin, giving private tuition and again working in a government office. His account of his London experiences appeared in 1854 (Ein Sommer in London). In 1855 he returned to London as an official correspondent, and remained there until 1859, touring Scotland in 1858. On his return to Berlin he conceived the idea of writing a travel book on the landscape and historical associations of his own country, the outcome of which was Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg (1862-82).

    In a famous speech (1946) Sir Winston Churchill warned of an implacable threat that lay behind a Communist “iron curtain.” The United States, taking the lead against the expansion of Soviet influence, rallied the West with the Truman Doctrine, under which immediate aid was given to Turkey and Greece. Also fearing the rise of Communism in war-torn Western Europe, the United States inaugurated the European Recovery Program, known as the Marshall Plan, which helped to restore prosperity and influenced the subsequent growth of what has become the European Union.

    During the cold war the general policy of the West toward the Communist states was to contain them (i.e., keep them within their current borders) with the hope that internal division, failure, or evolution might end their threat. In 1948 the Soviet Union directly challenged the West by instituting a blockade of the western sectors of Berlin, but the United States airlifted supplies into the city until the blockade was withdrawn (if you like pls check out this link I set to a little read on 60th anniversary of Berlin Airlift). The challenges in Europe influenced the United States to reverse its traditional policy of avoiding permanent alliances; in 1949 the United States and 11 other nations signed the North Atlantic Treaty (NATO; see North Atlantic Treaty Organization). The Communist bloc subsequently formed (1955) the Warsaw Treaty Organization as a counterbalance to NATO.
