About this micro camping
Our garden is located in a small village called Sonnewalde in the south of Brandenburg. About 1.2 km away from our place you will find a supermarket, two bakeries of which one is also open on Sundays, a small post office and a couple of other shops. The garden is supposed to be transformed little by little into a close to nature place where there is space also for wild herbs as food for bees, butterflies and bumblebees. We provide space for 1 - 2 tents and 1 - 4 people. More people may be allowed as an exception if the people know each other. Water will be provided in water canisters. We will also refill your waterbottles in the house. There is no regular shower only a very simlpe "solar shower" that we used as well in the beginning. For that shower you may only use natural organic soap or rhassoul (natural mineral clay). Luggage and bicycles can be put in the barn where there is also the composting toilet (with saw dust). On rainy days you may use the barn for your "picnic", dry your wet clothes or simply staying there. The space for the tents is mown regularly and offers shade during some hours a day. The next cities are Finsterwalde and Doberlug-Kirchhain which are about 11 - 12 km away. Both cities have got train stations. From Finsterwalde station there are bicycle paths for nearly the whole distance to Sonnewalde. Our surrounding area is nice for bike-tours and people who like watching stars. There are no hills around here and in clear nights you can observe a fantastic starry sky.Information about bicycle paths and tours as well as places of interest for sightseeing are displaced in the barn. Cars can be parked on the property itself or right in front of it.
