The Oaks of Ivenack are the oldest trees in Northern Germany. The oldest one is just shy of 1100 years which means it was alive even before America was (re)discovered by Columbus. There are plenty of stories of the oaks. Some say they are graves, others say they are nuns turned into oaks by the Devil. Take a stroll through the woods. There is a cafe that sells homemade ice cream, cakes and honey. You can even eat with a herd of deer that live in the forest.
