  • Eine wunderschöne Unterkunft, die Kinder haben es geliebt in einer Kirche zu schlafen. Nur wird man seeehr früh wach bei den riesigen Fenstern. Im Dorf gibt es ein Bistro mit lecker Essen und Eis, so dass man sich gar nicht weg bewegen muß.
    Auch zum Angeln ist es sehr schön gewesen, einzig die Mücken waren etwas aufdringlich.

  • We stayed for one week in the church. And we had a great time. Briest is a hamlet along the river Havel, which is across the street of the church (bring flip flops and swimming towel). It is the best spot to relax.The river is nearby, there is a garden and enough room to do your thing. We rented bikes. It's great to cycle in the environment. It's flat and the routes are cleary marked (although a few times we had to search.... ). The bikes we found in Plaue (4km from Briest). Here is also a supermarket,a few restaurants and in summertime an open air cinema.
    Besides 2 fish-shops ( fresh fish for the grill or smokes fish.. both we recommend) ,1 bistro and sometimes a mobile shop there is 'nothing' in Briest. So for the first evening and/or breakfast bring some food.
    The parents of Juliane (the are keeping the key) are really sweet people and fun to talk to (even we hardly speak german, they made an effort to chat with us). We also met the neighbour, who's a happy and jollyfull lady.
    If you come in summertime, bring something against the mosquito's, 'cause you are not the only one in the church ;-). It is a lovely place and if you like camping in a different way, this is the best place to be! We wish Juliane lot's of luck with her plans she has for the church and we hope it will keep it's character like it is now. We loved it!

  • Die Kirche ist sehr schön und Julianes Mama sehr nett und behilflich. Wer Abenteuer mag sollte definitiv hier hin :)

  • Die Kirche war wunderbar!
    Es ist wirklich ein tolles Erlebnis, würde ich auf jedem Fall abenteuerlichen Leuten empfehlen, die Lust haben in einem ungewöhnlichem Raum zu schlafen und Erholung suchen.
    Danke Juliane!

  • We had a great stay at Julianes church. Upon our arrival and check in her mother left us the keys. The place is, to say, very interesting and a curious accommodation to live in. High ceiling, big windows and you're sleeping in the ex-altar. It's fantastic and very affordable. Though it get's kind of cold during night.

    It's located in a very small but cozy village with a fishery and cute cafe. We will certainly come back soon!

Actually I'm from Berlin, but during work in Vienna, I spend time with filmprojects.On the weekends in summer I'm often in Briest and pursue my work as artist. My biggest vice is my coffee in the morning. Without I'm not fully functional! So, coffee and milk are always available :) What else I do like? Just ask! I will gladly answer all your questions.
