Seit 2018 in Berlin-Lichterfelde und auch bei komoot. Lieblingsgegend: Brandenburg - Ausflüge zu "echten" Küsten und Bergen nicht ausgeschlossen. Wandern ist meine Nr. 1, daneben Joggen, Radfahren, seltener auch Skilanglauf oder Kanu. Ich liebe unverfälschte Natur, es können aber auch Kulturlandschaften und Städtehighlights sein. Gerne wälze ich analoge Karten und bastle eigene Touren. An den Wanderhotspots wird man mich seltener treffen. Meine letzten Projekte waren:
Berg⛰️ und Tal🌲 in Kärnten: komoot.de/collection/1029088
Die Jwd-Runde⭕um Berlin: komoot.de/collection/977588.
Freue mich schon wieder auf Gruppenwanderungen. Ach ja, die 'Expert'-Wertung habe ich abgestellt :-)

Heiner had the idea to follow Frank Meyer's tour (original tour: komoot.de/tour/417065962) and actually took me with him! First of all: I really enjoyed this hike, 'it suits my taste'. At least two castles could be admired from the outside (Trebnitz, Gusow). While Trebnitz is an international educational institution (German-Polish focus) with a well-groomed close environment, the facility in Gusow looks neglected if not abandoned. According to local residents, it is waiting for a new potential use as a residential complex or retirement home. "Let's see ...", you could rightly say :-)
There was a lot of nature to visit between the places, especially at the Wermelinsee and the subsequent rogue ditch.
Like previous hikers, we were able to find out that you not only need good shoes on the riverside path (very deep holes!), But also the ability to climb over the countless trees that have been felled by beavers. However, it has to be a bit of adventure!
At the Gusow gravel plant, there were a few off-grid sections to deal with. There is no route there in the maps, but we think it is justifiable to recommend a beaten path there. For your own safety, however, you should stay outside the operating gravel pit.
We took a rest at the Gusow lido (with a seasonal campsite) before completing the hike with a dangling over Gusow and the old Oder.Conclusion: a relaxing and varied rural tour, easy to reach by train. I also found the sections across the field very pleasant. Towards the end of the tour we were even allowed to enjoy a few rays of sunshine.

Around 10.25 a.m., Marflow and I start our hike at Trebnitz train station (RB26). First we walk on the Trebnitz main street to the inn on the Ostbahn. A traffic light installation is set up in front of the inn as a work of art. We then continue past the village church to the beautiful Trebnitz Castle. The castle park makes a somewhat overgrown impression, the lakes in the park are heavily overgrown.
Our hike now takes us east through the forest to the Hermelin Lake. You can hardly get close to the lake. But we find a steeply sloping path that leads to the shore. We continue on the shore of the lake and then along the rogue ditch to the north. A swan family of five seems to feel a bit disturbed by us. When they realize that we are in no danger, they stay where they are - in the middle of the villain's trench.
We now reach the small village of Alt Rosenthal with its nice little stone church. At the Alt Rosenthal train station we cross the Ostbahn and shortly afterwards the Fließ (sic!). We simply leave the old watermill rest area to the left, as the pictures do not really make us believe in a functional rest area.
Then we follow a path that does not exist on Komoot, but is easy to see on Google Maps. If the gravel works is in operation, one should be careful here and watch out for vehicles that circulate here. Otherwise there is no great danger, even if the large signs convey that. Today, however, everything is dead and silent here.
Between the two quarry ponds, we now come to the Gusow campsite. There are actually still a few campers here. The lido at the quarry pond is also located at the campsite. The snack bar is already closed, but we use one of the tables with benches for our picnic. Meanwhile, the sun peeks through the otherwise almost closed cloud cover from time to time. We then leave the lido semi-illegally by stepping over a trampled fence.
On a concrete slab path we then reach the area of Gusow Castle. The building makes an abandoned impression. The lord of the castle died a few years ago and his wife recently followed him. Now the villagers are waiting to see what the son will do with the castle. It is believed that this will become a condominium complex. But a senior citizens' residence is also under discussion. Both of these would be a great blessing for the residents, in any case better than the current state.
We now visit the Gusow stone church, the tower of which was blown up in the Second World War and was never rebuilt. At that time the Red Army wanted to take away all landmarks. But it is known to have been of no use.
Now we turn to the Alte Oder, which flows directly past Gusow. That is a good idea, as the river makes an idyllic impression here. We follow the old Oder for a while and then turn back to the village. We arrive at Seelow-Gusow train station (RB26) at around 4:25 p.m. Almost punctually at around 4:29 p.m. we drive it back towards Berlin.The whole thing is a very nice tour, mostly on natural hiking trails. There are of course paved paths only through the villages, but they can be coped with. The weather was mostly cloudy, the sky overcast. A few small drizzle could not spoil the way for us. Only shortly before Gusow the sun came out from time to time. If you are careful at the Gusow gravel works, you can hike this route very well.
Many thanks to Frank Meyer for the hiking template, which I modified a little. Here is the original tour by Frank Meyer: komoot.de/tour/417065962

Dear hiking friends,... unfortunately no specific invitation to the next group tour at the moment. This is expected to take place in October, more on this shortly. I'm just thinking about the mode and the route.My route selection for the hiking season 2022 at the Märkischer Wanderbund is pending, and I'm still undecided about the upcoming group tours, which I would like to offer monthly via komoot or via my hiking blog, in the best case scenario.Since I am always open to new concepts, 'acting at eye level' is important to me and I very much like to use technical aids in the hiking area, I would like to ask you for your opinion, your preferences and, if necessary, suggestions for optimization along the way.You will find a pre-selection of over 50 tours in the collection created for this purpose at: komoot.de/collection/1324721/-geplante-gruppenwanderungen, most of which I have already hiked in exactly the same way myself. For this purpose, I have checked hundreds of hikes over the past 6 years for their suitability as a group tour, in terms of attractiveness, accessibility, weather resistance and of course the length of the route.In the end I was amazed at how many tours I would hike alone again at any time, but not in a group, for a variety of reasons ...If you are interested, please vote anonymously which tours you would like to hike in the group with me at: wandern-berlin-brandenburg.de/abstimmung-geplante-gruppenwanderungen
Until 30.09. open, 5 selections are possible there.Feel free to write your feedback, suggestions, your own ideas, etc. here or in the collection in the comment.

The middle Oder valley is one of the last areas in Europe where "the natural fluctuations of the river level are not artificially regulated over such a large area and where the human economy still has many characteristics that are oriented towards coexistence with the surrounding nature", says a display board on the Neurüdnitz-Siekierki bridge, which is currently being rebuilt.Correspondingly, the Oder River cast a spell over us with its wide floodplains on the Polish side and the flat Oderbruch on the German side. The inert masses of water move like a magnet towards the Baltic Sea. Today's management of the Oder and the shape of the Oderbruch are made by human hands: between 1747 and 1753, thousands of workers and soldiers on the Oder dug a new, shortened bed, built dikes and drained the swampy landscape with canals and ditches.Our starting point was Hohenwutzen, which is conveniently located with its Oder bridge. On the Polish side is the Zehden Landscape Protection Park (Cedynski Park Krajobrazowy). On a road with little traffic, we followed the valley to the former Siekierki train station. There is currently still work on a new (old) connection between Germany and Poland, the "Europabrücke Neurüdnitz-Siekierki". Formerly part of a continuous rail link from Berlin, it has not been used for traffic since World War II .This bridge is unique! The Polish part of the bridge has been refurbished to the highest standards and prepared for bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Seating in the middle of the bridge invites you to linger. Interesting bilingual display boards on the history and the floodplain on the Oder. This would be a perfect connection over to the Oderbruch ... if the work on the German side on the main river bridge did not lag so behind in time that there is still no continuous traffic possible. Interesting why they are far too late on the German side ? At least construction work is visible and we may then have a continuous bicycle connection over the Oder in 2022.After the bridge we drove on another gem on the Polish side, the cycle path leading into the Polish hinterland on the former railway line from Wriezen to Godków . This bike path is top notch! Smooth roadway, gentle inclines, guidance through forests and over fields far away from any roads and even settlements. (Even the few, former train stations are miles away from their settlements.) The journey here is great fun and is also accepted by the local population!We followed this path to Moryń (Eng. Mohrin), a neat little town on the lake of the same name. The still largely preserved city wall is interesting here. Otherwise, the place looked very sleepy except for the market square on this Sunday. After we ended up on a very bumpy back road for a few kilometers on the way back, we refrained from further experiments and took the same railway route again for the return trip. Due to the gradient, the journey passed even faster and the sun's rays sweetened the journey on the road in the Oder Valley.On the German side, we followed the well-developed cycle path on the dike to Zollbrücke for about 15 kilometers. On this route you have wonderful views of the flat Oderbruch with its small settlements and tree-lined avenues. On the Polish side, the rapidly rising and wooded bank dominates. In Zollbrücke we said hello again to the "Theater am Rand" we had visited the night before, only to reach the Kolonistenkaffee in Neulietzegöricke shortly afterwards. In this village, which was founded in the 18th century, there is still visible homage to Frederick II of Prussia, who caused the Oderbruch to be drained and reclaimed as new arable land. We rewarded our efforts today in the nicely designed outdoor area with two delicious cheesecakes with a cup of coffee. On the way back there was still a bit of fresh headwind, but we arrived at the starting point very satisfied from the day.Conclusion: The lush nature with its many water birds on this little regulated part of the Oder is very special. The Polish hinterland around the town of Moryń made us taste for more, especially since the corresponding region of Pomerania continues to work on its network of long-distance cycle paths. The Colonist Coffee finally showed us once again that a delicious cake is a must for a perfect weekend :-) de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oderbr%C3%BCcke_Bienenwerder

The main reason for our weekend in Bad Freienwalde was to visit the highly recommended "Theater am Rand". The same project initiated by accordionist Tobias Morgenstern and actor Thomas "Dr. Heilmann" Rühmann (theateramrand.de) has developed into a cultural attraction in the Oderland. So on a cozy Saturday evening we sat under trees not far from the Oder river and listened to the live music of the "Tango Finlandés" orchestra with 150 other visitors.Before this cultural highlight, we had two hours to do a little round in Bad Freienwalde. The starting point was our "Theo", which is also very popular here and immortalized in Gesundbrunnenstrasse in Stein. You follow a series of impressive Wilhelminian style villas uphill to the Kurhaus. This city can almost pass as a small "Baden Baden" - only a casino is still missing.We followed the contour lines above the city to the "Thüringer Blick", from where you can see far in the direction of the Odertal Hammertal. In the light-flooded deciduous forest, we walked a small piece of the much praised Oderlandweg. The "Teufelssee", idyllically situated in the upper Hammertal, is a gem. We went back to the starting point via the forest town and the spa gardens.Conclusion: Bad Freienwalde, with its variously designed hills above the Oder Valley, offers very entertaining hiking entertainment, some of which is reminiscent of low mountain range scenes. The little tour on this autumn day made you want a lot more.Reverberation: I have just read that a generous bypass for Bad Freienwalde is planned in the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan 2030 (deges.de/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/PR_2021-04-27_127_OU-BadFW_Digi-IV_29-04 -2021_FINAL.pdf) If this belt of asphalt were built into the landscape, some of the areas shown in this tour would be destroyed or noisy forever.

This weekend wasn't much going on with us in terms of energy. So what to do Although we have been based in Berlin for more than three years, we have always left out the Pfaueninsel in the past because a) there was too much crowd, b) an attractive, longer route was available or c) there was no ferry to the island in winter .
We have to admit enviously that the island did not disappoint. It is bigger and more spacious than expected, so that visitors get lost quickly. Hard creative interventions in the landscape are kept within limits, so that one finds a mixture of designed park, landscape park with lines of sight and overgrown riparian zones. Here and there there were flowers and fruit. The small, neat Schloss Pfaueninsel is unfortunately scaffolded for renovation purposes for the next 2 years.
One of the great attractions of the island is that you repeatedly come across small, fine pieces of jewelery unexpectedly during the inexperienced stroll. On the one hand, there are outstanding old trees (mostly oaks), then the free-running peacocks and enclosed water buffalo, buildings such as the dairy farm or the hunting umbrella (with an outer facade made of bark) and finally the fountain on the edge of the forest.
If you read through the history of the island, you understand that the Prussian-royal nobles created a playground here, where they had a good time with a selected entourage ...
A visit is definitely worth it if you have some leisure time on a sunny day and are not aiming for a course record ...

Since I am still in the (after-vacation-related) junk mood, I submit my small contribution to the group hike 'Döbritzer Heide' with a little delay.
The Döbritzer Heide showed itself after several rainy days towards the end of summer in astonishingly fresh colors and now and then the sun came through today. It was a lot of fun to walk the route again together with hiking friends from near and far!
Here is Frank Meyer's description of the event that he otherwise organized very well with links to the tours of all other participants: komoot.de/tour/469211022

Since we were visiting my old homeland, I am reporting from Herrenberg in Swabia. On the first part of the tour, I accompanied my mother on her daily bike tour through the upper Ammertal with its three mills (1st, 2nd and 3rd Ammermühle). At giltstein and Mönchberg you cross extensive orchards - an ornament of the local landscape. I was told that this was one of the largest orchards in Germany after the 'old country'. Especially in autumn, the air smells of fruit and invites you to snack from a tree here and there. However, unauthorized harvesting is of course forbidden ... In earlier times the fruit stealing played such a big role that a guard was hired, whose 'Hutnerhäusle' is still standing by the roadside today. (In this case one can hardly speak of 'the good old days' ...)
Then I made a detour to the Schönbuchtrauf (Grafenberg), from which you can see maybe 40-50 km today, on clear days up to 100 km in the direction of the Swabian Alb and the Black Forest. It had rained heavily during the night, so that my way back on mountain bike trails turned into a mud fight.

At the end of our alpine holiday there was a tour on the ridge of the Karawanken. The starting point was Latschach not far from Lake Faak. From there the path leads to the former Anna hut (because it burned down). The narrow path then meanders, mostly on the Slovenian side of the Karawanken range, to the Schwarzkogel. This ridge path was wonderful, on the one hand you had a view of the Carinthian main valley with the Faaker See, on the other hand of the Julian Alps. Parts of the path belong to the well-signposted Alpe-Adria-Trail, which leads from the Großglockner to Trieste.
The weather proved to be quite unstable that afternoon. I didn't get wet in the end, but the danger of an approaching thunderstorm made me sweat a bit on the lonely and exposed heights. The end point was the Baumgartnerhof, a popular excursion restaurant, where my wife picked me up and where we could strengthen ourselves with friends.
The next morning it was time to pack the tent and head back home. It was a very eventful and inspiring vacation ...

The Weißensee is 930 m above sea level about halfway between the Drau and Gail valleys. Despite this altitude, bathing in the cool water was fantastic. Rarely seen such clear water in which you can see the fish and fins of the ducks without exception. Due to the predominant limestone, the lake shimmers turquoise and its color is reminiscent of tropical waters.
It is valuable that only a small part of the 23 kilometer long bank is built on. Fortunately, a planned thoroughfare was prevented 50 years ago, so that the eastern part of the lake still rests lonely between the steep and wooded slopes of the valley. A narrow, sometimes steep hiking path connects the east bank with the villages on the west side. For the way back, I have chosen the higher forest path, which is also better suited for cyclists, for example. Both paths offer a beautiful view of the lake.
On the last few kilometers I got into a sudden thunderstorm. The reward, however, was a rainbow!
