Access and Facilities
Reachable in 1,5 h with car from Berlin city centre. Very interesting for birders is the street from Kostrzyn to Slonsk but there are lot of car traffic.
We traveled from Kostrzyn to Slonsk and back to Slubice over border to Frankfurt(Oder). The autobahn Berlin - Frankfurt(Oder) is strong frequented with trucks ( traffic jam until autobahncircle of Berlin is possible ).
Normally truck use right lane, but not every time. Street Berlin - Kostrzyn is not so frequented, but lots of German shopers come to Kostrzyn specially on weekend.
Big supermarket in Kostrzyn accept Euro.
