Katerbow From oil mill and apple pig
Katerbow is home to the Havelländer Apfelschwein (apple pig), famous in Berlin, but above all the village is an oasis of peace. The village, once a knight's estate, lies between Neuruppin, Netzeband and the Kyritz-Ruppiner Heide on the long Katerbower See lake. The lake offers romantic views of the water and the opportunity to explore the flora and fauna of the adjacent mixed forest on a 7.5-kilometre-long circular hiking trail. The lake is also popular with anglers. A detour to Märkische Schweiz is also worthwhile. In the village itself, visitors should take a look at the village church, whose tower is reminiscent of a small castle. The combination of field and brick construction reveals that today's neo-Romantic church still contains its predecessor building from the Middle Ages. The Katerbow oil mill, which offers freshly pressed linseed oil and more, is also well-known.
