Neubrandenburg Things to Do

    Another fine example of the local architecture, one of the buildings set within the city wall itself. This one is the restaurant where we dined seen from the back.

    A long section of the medieval Neubrandenburg city ramparts are still intact. The mortered stone walls which were built very sturdy and thick, have admirably withstood the forces of invaders and nature over the 650 years that they have stood.

    Photo #1 shows three of the many half timbered guard houses that were built directly into the massive walls. They were spaced at close intervals. The militiamen defended their city from them while they provided housing for their families. Also shown is the stone pedestrian promenade that runs the entire length of the ramparts. Relax in the public greenbelt area adjoining both sides of the ancient walls.

    Photo #2 is a closeup view of one of the guard houses. These perfectly restored houses now serve as shops, pubs, and eateries. The one shown is a small restaurant having great ambience. I cannot comment on the quality of the food because we did not eat there.

    Neubrandenburg is a fairly large industrial city located about 120 km. north of Berlin. Although the city has only a few tourist attractions, it is well worth a short stop for people visiting the region.

    As is the case with so many European cities during medieval times, massive ramparts were built to defend the city against invaders. A long section of the Neubrandenburg ramparts are still perfectly intact and very well preserved. All four of the city tor ( gates ) are still intact, and maintained at or near their original conditions. The red brick tor and defense tower shown in the photo is located on the east side of altstadt ( old town ). This structure exhibits a forceful display of architecture, with strong vertical lines being emphasized. The white inlaid designs are even a bold symbol of strength. As indicated by the Gothic arched rooms above the gate, these structures served multiple functions, including housing of the city militia. The central gate was used for wagon and equestrian traffic, while the small side gate was for pedestrians.

    Three other well spaced gates displaying the same style of architecture still guard altstadt.

    Extremely popular restaurant, if you've come to this town to have dinner, this seems to be a must! It is even mentioned specifically in our Dutch tourist guide for this part of Germany. All of the seats inside the restaurant itself were occupied when we arrived, but fortunately we could still be seated outside.

    Favorite Dish: We had 'Putensteak mit Ananas' and 'Wieckhausspiess' with curry and mushrooms, rice; alcohol free beer and wine. We paid Euro 40.- (2011).

    On a hot sunny day in July 2011 I spotted this restaurant with a lovely outdoor sitting area away from the main road. The building is rather old, originally dating back to the 13th century. It was used as a mill for various grains. It had to be rebuilt over the centuries. Until 1968 it was used as a mill.

    In 1975 the building was turned into a restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly.

    There is also plently of parking space and it's very suitable if you arrive by bicycle.

    Favorite Dish: I opted for a Sumatra salad as I saw two ladies on the next table that just got that yummy looking salad. It cost Euro 9.20 and the dressing was strawberry vinaigrette. The Apfelshorle (0,5 l) was Euro 3.90.

    Since I happened to be there on Tuesday in summer they had a dice saver on which in the end saved me 8 % off the total bill which was a lovely touch.

    Neubrandenburg is connected by regional trains from Berlin. They journey takes 1 hour and 45 minutes from Berlin Hauptbahnhof to Neubrandenburg.

    The other end of the line is Stralsund on the Baltic sea and from Neubrandenburg it takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to get there.

    In the station there is a kiosk which also sells drinks and snacks. Apparently there are lockers, but I didn't see them. No toilets available.
