The Barnim Nature Park is the only large, transnational conservation area in the states of Berlin and Brandenburg and at the same time the only nature park in the State of Berlin.

The landscape is shaped by the Barnimplatte, which dates back to the Ice Age . It is bordered by the two glacial valleys Eberswalde in the north and Berlin in the south. In the east the Oderbruch and in the west the glacial valley of the Havel border the Barnim.

A new building has been built here since 2011, including the old village school and the agricultural museum . This new nature park center was inaugurated on September 7, 2013 as Barnim Panorama - Nature Park Center Agrarmuseum Wandlitz . The nature park center offers regular events such as a day of the regions , ranger tours and other things for those interested in nature.
