Take either the road or the railway from Oranienburg to land up at Neuruppin where Theodor Fontane and Karl Friedrich Schinkel were born. The town oozes an eighteenth-century ambience that has faded slightly to put up a stark contrast with the newer developments.
Among the three large squares, the Pfarrkirche hosts the St. Marien church, which still retains its Baroque influence though the rest of the city has a Neoclassical feel to it. A look at the buildings adjacent to the Unter den Linden shall prove that; to delve further into the ambience, visit the Altes Museum.
The Schinkel monument is next on the bill and then the Fontanehaus on the Karl-Marx-Strasse before heading towards the Neoclassical Gymnasium commercial art gallery. Then, it is the Tempelgarten, with a circular Neo-classical temple from which it derives its name. Another array of Baroque-styled buildings show up as one crosses the Königsplatz (parade ground).
You may now want to rest a bit. There's perhaps no better place for resting the weary legs than the Seeufer; this broad promenade on the Ruppiner sea shore shall also reveal the seven hundred year old Klosterkirche. One of the icons in this area that you can't miss is the huge polished steel statue Parzival am See.
