... on the way back from my second 'MitWandern' relay stage by train to Berlin I had to change trains in Schwerin and had one and a half hours, so I finally got a little 'tour appetizer' in this wonderful city.I found the castle simply wonderful, despite the very heavy cloud cover there were great views of the castle island from all sides. The city seemed very active and lively to me, certainly also due to the number of tourists.Of course, the time available was far too short to 'take in' all the sights, I'll definitely be back and then I will go on a longer culture and nature hike there.For decades I had always associated Schwerin with the 'Police Call 110', especially the iconic episodes of the mid-1990s with Kurt Böwe and Uwe Steimle as a brilliant team of investigators.---------------Info and tour description:This little tour starts at Schwerin-Mitte train station, down the Lobedanzgang down to the Lyceum, then on Goethestrasse and Schloßstrasse past the State Chancellery towards the castle. Now the shore of the Burgsee is followed and half of it is circled on the promenade to the floating meadow. The path continues through the castle garden and around the outside of the castle island back to the 'mainland' on Werderstrasse.The promenade around the Marstall is followed with a view of the Innensee, then it goes over a parking lot to Grünen Strasse, then on to Burgstrasse and Puschkinstrasse to the market square. The path leads around the cathedral to the Pfaffenteich and a piece of the bank along Alexandrinenstrasse, before turning off to Schwerin Central Station, where this tour ends.

... today I contributed my second relay stage for 'MitWandern 2021' with mostly heavy cloud cover, again it went to Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, but this time much further west to the Ludwigslust-Parchim district.It was already clear to me in advance that this would not be a 'hiking treat', the template had already been optimized as well as possible. So it turned out to be a tour that strongly reminded me of my local Camino de Santiago projects in the last two years, I 'shuffled' my way from village to village, mostly on narrow country roads with some traffic.The only highlights besides the partly interesting villages today were the peat waters about halfway and the round around the Crivitzer See at the very end. With my subsequent little tour through Schwerin (komoot.de/tour/429469736) I was able to reward myself again, so that at the end of a successful day of hiking there is an area that is difficult and time-consuming to reach for me, which maybe is not necessarily a 'hiking paradise'.-------------Info and tour description:This stage starts at the bus stop in Domsühl, first you go along the village green on the main road to the western end of the village, then you follow the dirt road right next to the train tracks. After one kilometer, the branch turns off at the next level crossing, and for the next six kilometers the path leads over narrow country roads with a few changes in direction, crossing the small villages of Schlieven and Friedrichsruhe. This is followed by a composite slab path through a peat water area before it goes uphill to the village of Ruthebeck.The only forest section of the tour follows on forest roads, after which the somewhat larger town of Zapel is reached and is also crossed. A dirt road leads to Crivitz, at the entrance to the village the railway line is crossed and followed the Zapeler Weg, then the district road to the small town center. After circling the town church, turn off to the shores of Lake Crivitz, which is almost completely circled for two kilometers on a beautiful promenade.Finally, the Freiheitsallee with its villas is followed, then the Crivitz train station is reached via the Molkereistraße, where this stage ends.

Dear fellow hikers,You are great! The last weekend showed how beautiful our country can be and how great the interest is in such an XXL hike through the whole country. Thank you all for your sometimes multiple hikes for this relay hike. More than 2,700 km have already come together.Each of you has made your very own (!) Contribution. One has covered a lot of kilometers, the other swam through a lake or the stage number was simply integrated into the recording.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!At this point I would like to thank you again
Joachim (komoot.de/user/308124377626?ref=amk) &
Half a year ago, Frank and I were of the opinion that we couldn't manage such an action and that komoot had to actively support / take action ourselves. Now we have together proven the opposite.Unfortunately, even before the storm hit, it was already foreseeable that we would not be able to hike all 159 stages in 3 days. This is not least due to the fact that the advertising for this event only ran through us as organizers (and of course through you!). But well, what we did on our own is great.---komoot.de/collection/1243055/-mitwandern-2021-an-3-tagen-gemeinsam-durch-deutschland---komoot.de/invite-tour/426933856?code=dsk5qo-PxJx0znLEOAlHiHj5najX_eTWPHzCQ7jWg6XgjZQSoQ

With this tour I would like to personally thank all participants of the big Germany season 'MitWandern 2021', and not only to 'my' hiking community in the northeast, but to all fellow hikers across the country.It was simply moving for us organizers to sit in front of the computer or smartphone at the weekend and watch how the tours we planned were actually 'brought to life' and completed by you. Thanks a lot for this!Once again, there was a wide range of individual presentations, many stages with first-class and professional photos, many stages with wonderful descriptions of very different characteristics and with extremely entertaining captions as well as ... the metaphysical stage of jogging bread that cannot be put into words: https : //komoot.de/tour/423994918 (you can even see the 'e043' stamped in the meadow in the overview of the collection!)I would particularly like to highlight Lucy's stage, which did not hike around the lake but simply swam in a direct line to the other bank: komoot.de/tour/423931663Here is the joint collection:
komoot.de/collection/1243055/-mitwandern-2021-an-3-tagen-gemeinsam-durch-deutschlandSince there was nothing to win except to strengthen the community idea, I would like to offer a group hike for all relay participants as a small thank you at the end of August in the old tradition.----------You have probably noticed that this time we received almost no official support from komoot. This is certainly due to both the personnel situation and the change in focus at komoot. We / I would have been able to advertise a smaller event regionally without any problems, but for the Germany-wide organization we would have needed the 'big' komoot promotional channels, which we couldn't.So it happens that we still have a good 30 stages that have not yet been hiked. For some, this is actually due to the flood, so we had already decided to make it possible to catch up by the end of July. I would like to encourage those of you who are still in the mood for a 'lookup' or who have so far missed out for various reasons to strike again. Myself, as well as some of the organizers, will also contribute an additional stage to those already hiked.The stages that are currently still open are these (those in square brackets are currently reserved but have not yet been completed or are 'missing in action' or have simply been overslept):E005 "MitWandern 2021": Husum - Jübek (komoot.de/tour/375990023)

... I was on a 'complementary tour' today, just like a week ago, from Trebnitz on the edge of Märkische Schweiz, but this time in the opposite direction, to Müncheberg.I was particularly interested in creating the most attractive possible connection to the beautiful lakes in the nature park to the south, as I did not yet know the paths in the first part. I especially liked the field and meadow paths with wide views of the slightly undulating landscape, but today there were still some moderately overgrown sections to master up to the Großer Klobichsee.The second part, already well known to me, led away from the popular nature park route very nicely through the woods and past various lake shores. I concluded the hike with a dangling to the Kesselsee and what I believe to be the best access to the Müncheberg train station along the paddocks at the Galgenberghof.Certainly a recommended route for those who are looking for other suitable tours on the edge of the Märkische Schweiz nature park.------------Info and tour description:This tour starts at the train station in Trebnitz, first it goes west out of the village, then the slightly overgrown dirt road on the former mine railway embankment is used for two kilometers, with beautiful views of the slightly undulating landscape. After a hairpin bend, the Jahnsfelder Weg, which presents itself as a beautiful tree-lined avenue, is followed slightly downhill to Obersdorf.The place is crossed in a westerly direction, then it goes on the dirt road in the direction of the forest and there on slightly overgrown paths in the direction of Münchehofe. At the entrance of the village, however, you branch off immediately and circle the large camping park, then the path leads above the Großer Klobichsee to the bathing area and through a marshy forest to the end of the lake. A beautiful, natural forest section follows, then it goes on broader forest roads in a curve to the eastern settlement areas of Waldsieversdorf.Here in Dahmsdorfer Straße you turn down to the Großer Däbersee and follow the very beautiful John-Heartfield-Steig to the southern end of the lake, after crossing the bridge you continue on equally beautiful bank paths around the Kleiner Däbersee and a little along the Papillensee . This is followed by a section of forest over to the Kesselsee, which is circled almost halfway, then goes through the forest to the horse paddocks on the Galgenberg and along them down to the railway path. After crossing the railway line, the destination is finally reached at Müncheberg station.

... it was already today, my own stage of the Germany season 'MitWandern 2021', mainly through the Müritz National Park in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.Since I hiked the route in a very similar way a good three years ago within my Havel project, I had optimized it a little today in the first part and greatly shortened it in the second part.Today I really liked the first twenty kilometers to Zwenzow, they were varied and the rhythm of the forest and lake shore sections was perfect. For the last six kilometers, I almost exclusively use the country road, which is not so little traveled, as the only alternative would have been the bike path, which is much quieter but would not have offered any further attractions in terms of landscape.Already after an hour I was completely sweaty in the dense mixed forest, which was still very damp from the nocturnal rain, through which clouds of mist were still moving in the morning. The atmosphere and the scent paired with the light in the morning were sensational.In the end, I was very satisfied with my choice of route and the way the variant was worked out; some tours just can't maintain their quality level from start to finish. The only drawback today: despite frequent tempo adjustments, I was way too fast, the planned 'precision landing' didn't quite work out and I wanted to leave Silvia exclusively for her subsequent stage on the possible tour of the city through the worth seeing Wesenberg ;-)My thanks go to the co-organizers of the event, especially of course to Jan Verbüugeln, whose idea was the Germany season.
I am very excited about the other stages and will definitely comment on all of them in the Northeast myself.-----------Info and tour description:This stage starts at the train station in Kratzeburg, after crossing under the track, the embankment is followed on a dirt road to the crossing of the still rivulet-like Havel, then the path is followed to the public northern bathing area at Käbelicksee. Then it goes on the gravel road along the shore to the large private nature campsite and through this (please briefly inform the reception that you are hiking through as a stranger!).At the end of the campsite, the very beautiful marked forest path is followed near the shore of the lake, later branching off to the main path, which leads to the Langhagen forest settlement as a sand and gravel road. After a detour to the Langhäger See, the piste is followed, where a 'shortcut' over a meadow path is possible in the meantime, which brings a little variety and also saves distance. At the exit of the forest you meet a side road that you follow into Blankenförde, along the way you can see the beautiful little calf lake.The path leads through a floodplain valley from there in the direction of the Jäthensee, then the (Stein-) Havel, which is already somewhat wider here, is met again and crossed. This is followed by a very beautiful stretch of shore along the Jamelsee, before a slightly overgrown meadow path leads around the Red Lake at some distance. On a longer section of the forest, the path then leads back through the lush green, at a distance from the core zone of the national park, along the banks of the Krummen See and around the southern tip, before you come across a very beautiful bathing area in the great mixed forest on the south-eastern bank.Shortly afterwards you reach Zwenzow and bypass it in the forest, then the bike path is used to the Useriner Mühle, where the Havel is crossed again. After a visit to the large bathing beach on the Useriner See, there are now almost only country roads as far as Wesenberg. Pass the Buchenhorst settlement to the village of Klein Quassow and through it, then follow the Quassower Weg to the Wesenberg settlement on the hillside. Finally, it goes on the gravel road parallel to the tracks to the level crossing on Zwenzower Weg and on the other side of the rails to the Wesenberg train station, where the stage ends.

Dear fellow hikers,Due to the strong storms and the subsequent failures at Deutsche Bahn or the closures of the hiking trails, it is ok if you cannot go on your tour this coming weekend. However, your tour should have been made up for by the end of July. This is not supposed to be an eternal project. 😉As organizers, we of course also expected better hiking weather all over Germany. But we can't change the weather either.
In any case, we are really looking forward to your great tours!Your organizers

... a small tour of the zoo as a 'transporter' for my last relay reminder and additional important information for the relay participants.First of all, I would like to point out for the last time that we still have almost 40 starting places available for the Germany-wide community relay event, which will take place tomorrow, the day after tomorrow and on Sunday. Regardless of whether you are hearing about it for the first time, are still undecided or on vacation, feel free to check whether there is a stage that suits you. You can of course also start spontaneously on Sunday after entering the doodle lists.Everything else about the event here:
komoot.de/tour/381093527And here is an overview of all stages:
komoot.de/collection/1181370/-mitwandern-2021-an-3-tagen-gemeinsam-durch-deutschlandIt will definitely be the ONLY and LAST action of this magnitude from the community and the chance will certainly not come back as a komoot user to be part of such an event!*** IMPORTANT NOTE!!! ***As many of you have probably noticed or even experienced up close, especially in the middle and south of Germany, many areas with stream and river valleys are currently affected by floods, and in some cases the situation is escalating even further.For this reason, it makes no sense or is even dangerous to hike the stages in these regions at the weekend. We have therefore decided the following:In the event of extreme weather conditions or floods, you can also catch up on your stage BY THE END OF JULY. Furthermore, we do not want to extend the participation rule in order not to distort the event too much. It should also be possible for undecided latecomers and people who due to illness or vacation from July 16-18. unable to hike to complete a stage by the end of the month.We think that it is also in the interest of all already registered participants to have all stages occupied as far as possible. Please only use this 'wildcard' if there is no other way. Most of the stages should be hiked over the next three days.I would personally advise the participants here in the northeast, based on the weather forecast, to hike their stage tomorrow (Friday) or on Sunday if possible.So, now I wish you and myself a nice and eventful relay stage, hopefully without rain. I myself will be on my route section tomorrow. See you in the collection!

... today again a mixture of culture and nature: I tried to combine the two castles in Trebnitz and Gusow with a shorter pleasure hike.To make it short: the project only worked to a limited extent! I had already seen what I was looking for on the two tours recently done independently of Victoria (komoot.de/tour/410681425) and Andrea (komoot.de/tour/402986249) on the banks of the Wermelinsee, but on site it was a real disaster: a barely recognizable path, often overgrown with up to two meters high grass and bushes, also peppered with countless fallen trees and other tripping hazards, which I sometimes laboriously on the slope had to deal.For this reason alone, I cannot give a recommendation for the route, which, however, knew how to please in many sections. Especially in front of Alt Rosenthal and in the extended area of the Wermelinsee, many paths were slightly overgrown, but still 'rustic' accessible. The castle park in Trebnitz is currently completely closed due to 'dangerous trees', although it remained unclear to me until the end, despite many signs, whether this also affects the main path through the park - which I was using.If someone asks: 'Why didn't he branch off to the gravel ponds in front of Gusow? Looks a lot better on the map. ' Yes, it was planned and tried, but this path also ended shortly before the goal at a high seat, surrounded by impenetrable vegetation. There have to be tours like this ...The two castles on this tour show the unequal fate of many of the more than 500 castles and mansions in Brandenburg after the fall of the Wall: the rather unspectacular mansion in Trebnitz houses, among other things, an education and meeting center and, together with the direct structural environment, is in the top Status. The remarkable and unusual Gusow Castle with an impressive history was bought by a West Berlin architect in 1992 and restored to its former glory with great effort. In the meantime there was a hotel with a restaurant and a museum in the castle, currently it is completely sealed off and partly gives an impression of the beginning decline again from the outside, the website of the operator has been switched off.---------------Info and tour description:This tour starts at the train station in Trebnitz, first the main street is followed past the church to the castle. After crossing the castle park (note as of 07/2021: the park is officially closed and should be bypassed!) It goes in a zigzag course over the fields and along the edges of the forest towards the Wermelinsee, which is reached via heavily overgrown paths.Note: The approximately 500 meter long path along the lake shore to the confluence of the Schurkengraben is extremely overgrown and very difficult to walk due to the many transverse tree trunks. It may make more sense to bypass this area in the forest or take another alternative route.The rogue ditch is followed in the forest to the village of Alt Rosenthal, after crossing the railway line, the path leads over the fields as a wide, old oak avenue. A small settlement is passed and an adjoining section of the natural forest is used, before a dead straight three kilometer long oak avenue follows up to Gusow. Here the path leads over Schäferstraße along the edge of the settlement to the castle, which is well worth seeing, then through the town east to Landstraße and there on the accompanying cycle path to Seelow-Gusow train station, where this tour ends.
