     Wandlitz is a nice but small village which is not far away from Berlin. It and especially its lake are very famous for people who live in Berlin because it is good for relaxation. Lots of them are coming here every weekend. Then there are always traffic jams...
     In 1267 Wandlitz was founded. Now it has 4650 residents but more and more people (most of them from Berlin) want to move into this area.
     When you want to have some special information about the history of Wandlitz and it is residents, you can visit the museum of agriculture or you can go into the library. Here you can find 23 restaurants and 4 hotels which invite you to spend some time in Wandlitz.
     Especially in summer they are always overcrowded. In this time you also can go to the lake of Wandlitz. It’s a nice bathing beach, good for swimming, having fun or doing watersports.
