Visiting just one town or city, no matter how popular, will only ever provide you with a glimpse into the broader cultural and natural fabric of a region. So try to allow a few days to savour Brandenburg's other sights and attractions. Laussnitz and Haida are just two of the many other places you may wish to visit while you're in Brandenburg.
Organize some transport and spend some time in Meissen, a retail and transport hub for the region, located approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Schipkau.

Meissen Cathedral and Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche) are some more visitor attractions worth checking out for those who would like to spend a while longer there.
If it starts raining cats and dogs, don't panic, Brandenburg boasts a range of history museums, art galleries and art museums, that'll keep culture vultures busy. To experience the spiritual side of Schipkau, be sure to head to the region's churches.
When the sun is shining, take the time to explore the region's much-loved waterways. Wake boarding and swimming are both popular ways to exercise here. Pack your camera and sign up for one of the cycling tours, city walking tours and guided nature walks.
Before you head back home, you'll be bidding this special place a fond Tschüss (farewell).
