Church and windmill in the picturesque village of Werder, near Potsdam south west of Berlin. Werder is built on a small island in one of the lakes of the river Havel.
20 years ago Werder was forbidden territory. It lay in the Soviet-controlled GDR, which was sealed off from West Berlin by the Wall. Today it's one of countless interesting places in the 'Umland' or surrounding region of Berlin.
