Holiday start in the brick factory park
On Saturday afternoon there is a colorful program for families

At the start of the holiday season in Berlin and Brandenburg, the Mildenberg brickworks park is expanding the museum offering for children and families. With games, fun and entertainment for young and old, there is a lot to experience on Saturday, June 26 from 1 p.m. And of course there is also something for hunger and against the heat…

The brickworks park invites big and small children to celebrate the start of the holiday with colorful offers. On the large adventure playground you can do handicrafts, forge, felt and ride. A bouncy castle is waiting to be conquered, and go-karts can be raced on a specially constructed course. While the grown-ups treat themselves to a bratwurst or a freshly baked piece of cake from the Stadige bakery, the little ones can do their rounds on the electric children’s train. For handicraft enthusiasts there are several creative corners where, among other things, stick animals and musical instruments can be made from cans, boxes and natural materials.

When the chimneys were still smoking in the Mildenberg brickworks park and millions of bricks were being fired, the company’s own workshops were also very busy. For the start of the holiday season on June 26, the brickworks park is expanding its museum offering with hands-on demonstrations: you can look over the shoulder of the blacksmith Steffen Erhardt, at a real field forge he shows how metal processing used to be done with pure muscle power. If you want, you can felt your own souvenir out of wool or grind a dragon’s tooth out of soapstone. If you want to know how hard the work „on the brickworks“ used to be, you can try your hand at laying bricks yourself. Under supervision, a lump of clay is turned into a real brick blank, which is ready for firing after drying. There is the possibility to have the bricks you painted yourself burn in the brickworks park and pick them up at the end of this year’s field fire kiln festival.

The clay wagon train, which once connected the factory premises and the clay pits, is also in use on this day. Instead of hard-working men and women, the train journey nowadays offers an idyllic natural landscape. Guests can sit back and relax in the former Tonloren and enjoy the landscape of the Uckermark Lakes Nature Park. After the train ride, you can get a soft ice cream on the adventure playground or maybe even dare a dip in the cool waters of the Herzbergstich – the bathing area is right next to the playground.

As on normal visiting days, no pre-registration or submission of a negative test is required for the „Ferienstart im Ziegeleipark“, only the contact details have to be provided on site and the AHA rules observed.
