Park of Study and Reflection Schlamau
A Park of Study and Reflection is a place that everyone can us to go deeper into oneself and as the name implies to study and reflect. The main focus of studies is the human being, their development and the possibility to build a nonviolent world.

Schlamau was mentioned for the first time in 1361 and was never laid to waste as it always had sufficient water.
Anyone who comes to Schlamau can easily understand why the Hohe Fläming is humorously described as the smallest low mountain range of Germany.
