Food and Drink
ALTER HAFEN GUESTHOUSE IN THE BRICKYARD PARK
The “Alter Hafen Gasthaus & Pension” with its spacious terrace on the banks of the River Havel, is right next door to the brickyard park. The guesthouse buys many of the ingredients for its delicious regional dishes direct from local suppliers, e.g. meat and ham from the Landfleischerei Mildenberg, goat cheese from the Schleusenhof Regow, beef from Bergsdorf and beer from Forsthaus Templin. During the summer, opening hours are 8 a.m. to 10.30 p.m.
Why not stay overnight in the guesthouse or nearby?
The “Alter Hafen” offers accommodation for every budget. In addition to comfortable double rooms, family apartments and holiday homes, the team also runs a small hostel, simple huts for cyclists and a small campsite. In the morning, guests can tuck into a generous breakfast buffet.
Celebrations and Events
Its charming setting makes the guesthouse a very special venue for events or celebrations. The newly-renovated hall can accommodate around 80 guests, the restaurant can seat 50 and, last but not least, the spacious riverside terrace offers plenty of space for weddings, corporate events or family celebrations. Thanks to the location, guests can easily integrate activities in the brickyard park or at the marina into their event. The guesthouse also holds its own events, especially in the winter months. You can find out more on their website.
"GRUBENAUFSCHLUSS" SNACK BAR IN THE BRICKYARD PARK
If you want to treat yourself to a bite to eat before or after visiting the museum, during your lunch break or simply when passing by, this is the place for you. The snack bar has something for everyone. Enjoy delicious French fries, currywurst, ice cream and drinks right here in front of the visitor centre.
The "Grubenaufschluss" snack bar was a mobile transformer station, which supplied the Burgwall opencast mine with electricity until the end of the 1980s. It provided the power supply to all the electrical machinery and systems, for example excavators and lighting. After brick production had been discontinued in 1990, the transformer was no longer needed in the mine and was parked on the site of today's brickyard park. In 1997 the outer shell was converted into a provisional ticket booth and used as such for about 2 years. Afterwards it served as a weatherproof storage room for a number of years. In 2015 it was converted into what it is today - the “Grubenaufschluss” snack bar.
