This time my wanderlust takes me to Trebbin in the beautiful Teltow-Fläming district. I start in Beelitzer Straße at the southern exit of the village and after a few hundred meters I reach the sluggishly moving Nuthe, the course of which I follow for the next 4 km south.The way is a dream. Not a soul is on the move, you are completely at one with nature. At a lonely weir, I switch to the other side of the river and now walk for a few minutes "off-grid" through the fields to the next signposted hiking trail (info for imitators: this "off-grid" part is completely easy to walk, man follows a well-trodden path).The next time it goes through the natural fields of the Nuthe lowlands. Every now and then you walk past small grain fields, but most of the time the area is characterized by wild growth - wonderful! A little east of the small Schönhagen airfield, which surprisingly makes a very busy impression today, I cross Löwendorfer Straße and now walk alternately through smaller forest areas and along beautiful fields towards the Löwendorfer mountains.First I walk around the Hinterer Löwendorfer Berg, on the summit of which (86 meters) there is a telecommunications tower from the 1950s that can be seen from afar. Now, for reasons of shortening, it's off-grid again through the pine forest up to the Vorderen Löwendorfer Berg, on whose summit plateau at a dizzying 103 meters there is an observation tower over 20 meters high, from whose top you can enjoy a magnificent all-round view. The viewing platform is reached after 115 steps and through the permanently installed binoculars you can even see downtown Berlin: Teufelsberg, radio tower, television tower…. the wide world very close.Now it goes back down and along the 66 lakes hiking trail slowly back towards Trebbin. At the entrance to the town on Beelitzer Straße I cross the Nuthe and follow the course of the river - because it was so beautiful earlier - a little further north to Fontaneweg F 4, on which I finally walk into town.Past the old water tower and the pretty St. Josef Church with its twin towers, you go straight to the memorial plaque in honor of the Trebbin meteorite impact from 1988 in Bahnhofstrasse. This is followed by the Trebbin mill and the old Evangelical cemetery with its field stone chapel, which is well worth seeing. Now it goes down Berliner Straße, past the memorial square with the war memorial from the French campaign from 1870-71 and the Hans-Clauert-Haus with the larger than life wooden figure of the “Märkischen Till Eulenspiegel” Hans Clauert, who lived here in the beginning of the 16th century.A little further along the street is the nicely restored village square with the Trebbin town hall and the Protestant church of St. Mary. Following Beelitzer Strasse, I reach my starting point a little later.Conclusion: After the last tour around Fresdorf, which I had almost praised in the sky, this hike can score another level higher. Each individual tour section shines with its own charm and fascinates with its beauty and closeness to nature. The path along the Nuthe is wonderfully relaxing, the wide fields of the Nuthe lowlands convey absolute timelessness, the Löwendorfer mountains and forests including the observation tower give a fantastic overview in all directions, well, and the town of Trebbin enchants with all kinds of sights such as B. a meteorite impact, the water tower, the mill and a beautifully restored historic town center. Highly recommended tour.----------I will create captions and highlights later.

In time for the weekend there is really nice weather, which is used immediately for a wonderful hike in the NSG Nuthe-Nieplitz-Niederung.It starts in Fresdorf in Potsdam-Mittelmark. First, the pretty village green and the village church are explored here, then it goes out of the village and across the fields halfway northwards towards the Fresdorfer Heide garbage dump.The landfill mountain, which has already been transformed into a stately green hill, is simply circumnavigated and the route continues for a while on the Jakobsweg Berlin-Leipzig. Before I come across the A10 crossing from the west, however, I prefer to turn and a second time a little later, this time to the south.Now I follow the European long-distance hiking trail E10 for a few kilometers here on the beautiful section between Saarmund and Trebbin. The path meanders through the hilly terrain through pleasantly spacious pine forest and even has one or the other quite steep ascent. Particularly worth mentioning is the 91m high oven mountain, whose “ascent” makes me pump almost like a cockchafer. In addition to the Himalayan oven mountain, Ziebchenberg, Grämitzberg, Stertberg and Fichtenberg are approached, if not even crossed.At the intersection of the Ortolan circular route I finally leave the E10 and now walk first over Ortolan, then later on the 66 lakes hiking trail to Lake Kähnsdorfer See. Here I turn east again and walk along Kähnsdorfer Straße back to my starting point in Fresdorf.Conclusion: A great hike that has definitely made it into the collection of my favorite tours. Especially the section on the E10 in the middle part of the tour is just phenomenal.----------Description of pictures ..... yes, later.

After a somewhat longer break from hiking, today it's finally time to go out into nature again. The destination is the village of Nudow in the Potsdam-Mittelmark district, from where I go on a circular hike via Saarmund, the Fontane hiking trail F5 along the Nuthe to Fahlhorst and from there back to Nudow. The weather is good and temperatures around 20 degrees are really fun when hiking.The story of the tour is easy to tell: After starting at the village green of Nudow with the village church and old school, you go along a dirt road next to the railway line towards Saarmund. At the weir over the Nuthe on Mühlenstraße, I pass the Saarmunder town limits and now take a short tour through the old village center with the village church, the old inn “Zur Stadt Leipzig” and the oldest part of the village, the old Mühlenstraße between Nuthe and the village church.Back at the weir, I follow the course of the Nuthe south on Fontaneweg F5 to the junction to Fahlhorst. The path along the Nuthe and later across the fields is breathtakingly beautiful. Lush green, here and there a few herds of cows on the horizon, plus the silently moving Nuthe in pleasant temperatures and sunshine…. more is not possible.When I arrive in Fahlhorst, the beautifully restored manor house provides a few photo opportunities before I walk through the town past the old syringe house, the village church and the stork's nest and then hike along an old irrigation ditch towards the A10.Shortly before the autobahn I turn north and walk back along the Siethener Elsbruch towards Nudow. I cross the Elsbruchgraben and finally reach the ruins of an old post mill shortly before Nudow. From here it is not far to the place where I can still look at some interesting buildings from the village's history. Then the starting point is reached and you can go home.Conclusion: An absolutely fantastic hike through almost deserted nature with great weather. It was just beautiful !-----------------Captions will be added later.

After nature was still in hibernation on my first visit here about three weeks ago, the cherry trees are now in full bloom. That means: put on your hiking shoes and go back to Teltow, to the longest cherry tree avenue far and wide.Fortunately, this Monday the avenue is not as crowded as it was on the weekend, so you can take some pretty good snapshots without too much crowds. The one kilometer long path through the dead straight rows of trees is beautiful and puts you in a really good mood.At Japan-Eck, the southern end of Kirschbaumallee, I switch to a hiking trail through the wide fields outside Berlin and walk in an arc to Gut Osdorf, a rather large former farm about 500m outside the Berlin city limits. The estate is surrounded by forest and fields and you could almost forget that the big city is just around the corner. Osdorf was first mentioned around 1375, at the beginning of the 20th century the place had grown into a stately farm. In 1968 the entire place including the manor was demolished in the course of "GDR border security measures" and the residents were relocated. Only a single barn remained. On the site you can still find individual silent witnesses in the form of ruins scattered all over the place.Behind Gut Osdorf, I step back on Berlin soil at the ruins of the Lichterfelde mountain. The mountain is simply "climbed" before it goes along the Berlin Wall Trail. Via Stanzerzeile and the green corridor on the local section of the Teltower Dörferweg I reach the Lilienthalpark and directly afterwards the extensive Lilienthal memorial with the historic “Fliegeberg”. The Fliegeberg, an approx. 12m high embankment, was created by Otto Lilienthal in 1894 in order to use it for gliding flights. Today's Lilienthalpark was built around the hill between 1928 and 1932. The lawns surrounding the Fliegeberg are planted with Japanese cherry blossom trees, which are currently in full bloom here too. So, unexpectedly today, I can enjoy a phenomenal cherry tree blossom for the second time.After an extensive visit to the Lilienthal memorial, I zigzag through the thermometer settlement, past the Stangenpfuhl, in which I even see a turtle. Following the Stangenpfuhlgraben, I reach the S-Bhf. Lichterfelde-South. From here it's not far to Ostpreußendamm, which I follow for the last few hundred meters to the starting point at the Berlin city limits.Conclusion: 2 x cherry blossom was of course today's highlight. I also liked the wide fields around Gut Osdorf and the Lilienthal memorial is undoubtedly impressive. So all in all a great hike with an unbelievable 28 degrees and constant sunshine.

Sunday - Mother's Day - great weather: phone call with mom and then off to nature!It starts in the small village of Prieros, on the Dahme waterway between Langer See and Huschtesee. Briefly checked the village green with the village church and home house, then off to the lock between Dahme and Mühlenfließ. Past the Prieros forester's house, head towards the eastern shore of the Huschtesee. A fabulous riverside path awaits me here, right along the water, with countless great views of the lake and the numerous motorboats / yachts that sail up and down to celebrate the day.The chain of lakes Huschte, Schmölde and Holzerner See is actually a single large body of water, which is divided into the three above-mentioned lakes due to its multiple curved course. I follow the beautiful riverside path to the campsite “Nahercovery Holzerner See”, where from now on I continue for a few kilometers on asphalt and the notorious GDR concrete slabs.At the Neubrück settlement, on the small canal between Klein Köriser and Holzerner See, I reach my "turning mark" for today on the L179. I circle the southern tip of the wooden lake and now walk back along the western bank of the chain of lakes towards Prieros. First of all, it goes here again for a while over the unloved asphalt floor to the KiEZ Hölzerner See, a huge recreation, adventure and experience center for children.Behind the KiEZ I now follow the great riverside path again, which meanders partly as a high path, partly directly along the water. Past various small beaches and the D66 campsite, continue northwards, now on the Fontane hiking trail, towards Prieros. Shortly before the village, I walk around the large children's, youth and family recreation center (KJF), then there is a last, quite long and tiring section of asphalt before I cross the Dahme-Wasserstraße again at Gräbendorfer Allee and a few minutes later reach my starting point again at the Prieroser Dorfaue.Conclusion: Actually a really great hike - if, yes, if it weren't for those stupid asphalt and concrete slab sections. They really pull the energy out of your legs. Nevertheless it was nice, especially the riverside path along Huschte- und Schmöldesee tears everything out again and makes this tour “absolutely recommendable” in the memory.

Fortunately, after the relatively bad weather at the weekend, things are looking a little better today. So quickly looked at what I have in my quiver as “planned tours”, and then off we go.It goes to Seddin in the district of Potsdam-Mittelmark, where I have planned to circumnavigate the Great and Small Seddiner See. The starting point is the pretty little village church on the main street of the village. From here I walk eastwards, past the large Seddiner bathing area, before I leave the place and at the same time enter Kähnsdorf, as the two villages merge. In Kähnsdorf there are also some pretty entrances to the (large) lake, the shore of which is presented here on its south side with a wide belt of sand and reeds.For a short time I leave the shore area and walk through the middle of the large Seddiner See boulder garden, which also contains a large number of modern sculptures. Past the small cemetery in the village, the path now leads me along some meadows before I go back to Kähnsdorf just before the outskirts. Here I admire the home parlor, which is well worth seeing, and another, hidden small stretch of beach in the reeds, before I leave the place and meander between the Seddiner and Kähnsdorfer lakes.Arrived on the east bank of the (Great) Seddiner See, I briefly cross the area of the lido and now follow a beautiful forest path that stretches between the lakeshore and wide fields. Here, too, there are always small gaps in the reed belt, where access to the lakeshore is easily possible. However, I (still) refrain from a longer walk along the shore, as the way back through the reed belt seems a bit too suspicious to me.Arrived at the northeast corner of the lake, I reach the village of Wildenbruch. Here, too, there is a very interesting small stone church to be admired before I set off around the north bank of the (Great) Seddiner See. Here, on the north side of the lake, the path runs a little further from the shore through extensive meadows and later along a golf course. Around the middle of the north bank, however, there is a great opportunity to get directly to the lake shore. A spacious raised stand provides a great overview of the reed belt and the wide lakeshore. Here I walk a bit directly along the lake and afterwards have to cope with a small “off-grid section” in order to get back to the hiking trail through the reeds. Please, dont't try that …. Better to stay on the way - nature thanks you!Now the route changes from meadow to forest path. A pretty little path leads through the undergrowth right along the lake. There are countless private jetties on this section, from which you have a great view over the lake. I pass the ICANOS campsite and the neighboring beach Lehnmarke and shortly afterwards I cross under the B2 (Leipziger Straße), the course of which separates the small lake from the great Seddiner lake.Now I quickly go around the small offshoot (Kleiner Seddiner See) before I reach my starting point at the Seddiner village church a short time later.Conclusion: an entertaining hike with an extensive lake feeling. The path on the south side of the lake leads mostly through villages, while the north and east sides lead along meadows, fields and forests. Around the lake there are always beautiful spots right on the water. Thumbs up.P.S. According to the tour schedule, I was "in the water" several times, which of course is not true. However, I am not guessing that there is a GPS problem, but rather that the water level of the lake is slowly but surely sinking and that the shore zones are becoming wider and wider. What a pity.

I always wanted to go to Beelitz and the surrounding asparagus fields. Inspired by a tour of Berlin2007 (komoot.de/tour/348305964), which I adapted a little to my preferences, it started today.I start the tour at the old church in the historic city center of Beelitz. Next door is the city hall, which is also worth a photo. From here it goes, past the asparagus museum and the grounds of the State Garden Show 2022, directly to Nieplitz, the banks of which I follow a few kilometers to the east. A wonderful hiking trail directly along the water's edge ensures an extra helping of good mood.At a large weir, I cross the Nieplitz and now follow the Wiesenweg, first along rapeseed fields, past the Lotushof equestrian facility, to the small, sleepy village of Schönefeld (not to be confused with BER-Schönefeld), a typical Brandenburg street village with a pretty village church including the old churchyard in the center of the village.The endless asparagus fields begin behind Schönefeld, their black and white plastic sheets fluttering in the wind. No trace of asparagus pickers far and wide, maybe it is already too late (shortly before 12 noon). Only shortly before Elsholz do I meet at least one of the workers and can see the so-called “asparagus spider” in action. An interesting tool!Elsholz is just as sleepy as Schönefeld before. The village square with the volunteer fire brigade, a pretty beer garden (unfortunately closed at the moment), a village church with a small cemetery, that’s it here too. Still, it was worth the short visit.From Elsholz it goes back to Beelitz. First again along the asparagus fields, then for a while through a small forest. After a few kilometers I reach the city limits and walk over the ramparts towards the old town, which I reach at the level of the police station. I walk past the Diesterweg School via Clara-Zetkin-Strasse and Berliner Strasse right through the pretty old town. The highlight here are clearly the narrow streets around Edel-, Mauer-, Grünstraße and Botengasse. It couldn't be more picturesque.Right next to the town hall, on the small market square, I quickly get myself a kilo of Beelitz asparagus, then I walk past the church back to my starting point.Conclusion: A nice hike with the absolute highlights "Uferweg an der Nieplitz", "Dorf Schönefeld", "Altstadt Beelitz". The path along the asparagus fields wasn't bad, but just too long and monotonous. Still, it was fun.

One thing first: Actually, this tour shouldn't be published here at all…. if only for fear that too many people will follow it and that it will therefore be too crowded. But here at komoot we are, so to speak, "among ourselves", so I'll make an exception.The second part of my lake hike from Nahmitz in the Central Markets I start again at the local village church. After I practically walked the south curve yesterday, today there is the Nordschleife as a look-up.What luck that, despite some criticism of yesterday's tour, I gave the area another chance, because today's hike simply deserves the top grade.Admittedly, the weather today was of course a lot better than yesterday, but the main difference in the tour rating is the landscape. Here, in the area between Nahmitz, Netzener See, Strengsee, Emster Canal and Rietzer See, there is everything that makes a hiker's heart beat faster: Idyllic forest sections, wide meadows and fields, lakes, ditches and canals, a kilometer-long bird watching area of the NABU Dike with endless reed banks and, last but not least, a dreamlike deserted atmosphere during the entire tour. Wanderer, what more do you want? If there's anything to complain about, then maybe the 800m along the (luckily very little used) road to Trechwitz (KM 11-12). But that doesn't really matter compared to the rest of the tour.This time I save the exact route of the tour with naming individual highlights, because for me the entire hike consisted of highlights.Conclusion: Those of you who have not been here yet (and there will certainly be many), please, please save the tour, keep it in mind and run off when the weather is nice. It's really worth it !!

Today there is a lake hike plus a monastery visit in the Potsdam-Mittelmark district.The start is in the village of Nahmitz, not far from the small village church. After crossing the small Strenggraben, I follow the Klostersee circular hiking trail and walk along the eastern bank of the river. I pass the lido and the somewhat “scruffy” looking art gallery on Klostersee and reach Lehnin via the Jakobsweg Potsdam-Vehlen. At a pretty boardwalk I catch a few nice views of the mill pond before I walk a bit through Lehnin. The most famous sight here is the monastery of the same name, which I will now, on the way there on my tour, leave on the left.Following the Emsterquellweg, I reach the east bank of the Gohlitzsee and follow the really pretty riverside path to the southern tip of the lake, near the village of Rädel. The biggest highlights of Rädel are the former brickworks and the half-way-preserved ring kiln. Now it goes along the main road on the west bank of the Gohlitzsee towards Lehnin. Here I buy several pieces of cake at the Kirstein country bakery (because I can't make up my mind) that I can carry in my hand for the rest of the tour. This makes photography a little more difficult, but if you want to eat cake, you have to suffer!Next on the program is the Lehnin Monastery. The site can be crossed without any problems, but the buildings are logically closed at the moment. It's always enough for a few nice photos.The last part of today's tour takes me back to my starting point in Nahmitz via the Kloster-Havel hiking trail. Here I am very happy to finally be able to put down the cake package that is "getting heavier and heavier".Conclusion: I've already had nicer lake hikes in my program. With a few exceptions, there was not much to see of the body of water. The way there splashed along, only the way on the east bank of the Gohlitzsee to just behind the village of Rädel was really beautiful. The way back initially led directly along the lakeshore using maps, but beyond the wide access road to Lehnin. The further way back to Nahmitz also consisted mostly of asphalt. Lehnin Monastery was of course THE highlight of the entire tour, but couldn't make up for the not-so-beautiful sections. Recommended for imitation only to a limited extent.

Today a quick tour in Barnim, in the area around the Bogensee and the former FDJ university "Wilhelm Pieck" as well as the old Goebbels villa "Haus Bogensee".I start at the side of the FDJ-Kaderschmiede and first walk through the forest northwards to Rohrluch, an idyllic little lake that has spread out in the middle of a birch conservation area. Everywhere the dead birch trunks are now sticking out of the water, which makes the scenery appear a bit surreal, but beautiful.From the Waldsee it goes now in the direction of Bogensee through the hilly Barnim forest. I pass a former small military area with a watchtower, shelters and a bunker that is now used as bat quarters.Shortly before the Bogensee, according to the Komoot hiking map, there should be several smaller ponds that I actually wanted to go around. Once there, however, I have to realize that there has been no more water of any kind here for a long time. So I now circle a few depressions in the middle of the forest ... without a pond.In general, the hiking trails in this tour section are a horror. Again and again I have to trudge through the undergrowth because there is nothing to see of the paths. The tree markings also leave a lot to be desired here. Sometimes it is several hundred meters long for me across the pampas, until I come across something "similar to a path" again.When I reach the beautiful Bogensee, things get better again. There are good paths here again and everything is well signposted. The Bogensee itself is a cozy place, you have a wonderful view over the lake from the riverside path.Not far from the lake is the spacious area of the former FDJ youth college "Wilhelm Pieck" with lots of "Stalin architecture" ... looks huge, but is now completely deserted and a great lost place, which is currently being restored in parts becomes.Somewhat apart, at the southern end of the area, is the former villa of the Reich Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, the "Bogensee House". Of course, this property is also abandoned and looks a bit out of date.What I notice positively here is that there are no traces of vandalism at all. No smeared house walls, no smashed window panes, everything seems deserted "at the moment", but you could almost think that some FDJ blue shirt comes around the next corner and tells something about the class struggle. Goebbels Villa also makes an overall reasonable impression.After the short tour and history lesson, I walk the few meters to my starting point.Conclusion: Small, but nice, I would say. Had it not been for the orientation chaos in the middle section, the tour would have deserved the top grade ... there is "only" a two.
