The Potsdam-Mittelmark district of Brandenburg is located in the west of the state. A holiday in the Potsdam-Mittelmark district takes place in two well-known Brandenburg travel regions: Fläming and Havelland.
A large scenic area of the district is defined by the Baruther Urstromtal, the Zauche and the Hoher Fläming. The entire landscape area is relatively flat, the highest elevation being the 200-metre high Hagelberg near Bad Belzig. In addition to large areas of forest, there are also agricultural areas that are used, for example, for asparagus and fruit cultivation.
Three nature parks are located in the district of Potsdam-Mittelmark: Hoher Fläming Nature Park, Nuthe-Nieplitz Nature Park and Westhavelland Nature Park. Well-known lakes, such as Lake Schwielow or Lake Templin, characterise the landscape.
