Today there was a short tour from Ahrensdorf adapted to the weather. We left the place via Hauptstrasse and An der Koppel. Parallel to the railway line it went to the underpass, then left a piece along a ditch and over this to the Siethener Elsbruch. We crossed this jungle-like alder forest, which is home to many mosquitoes, and came across Fontaneweg F5, which was the most unattractive part of the tour because it was located directly on the A10. We stayed on the north side of the autobahn, followed the path in the direction of Ahrensdorf and came to the Ahrensdorf gravel pits. At the first pond, hunters drove their mischief, so quickly into a path on the right and to the other ponds, where there are also swimming opportunities. Well, you're anything but alone here, but it was still comparatively harmless. We went back to Ahrensdorf via Trebbiner Landstrasse.

Today I completed the fourth stage of the Spree, and it was also the last in Saxony. Unfortunately, it was the least attractive yet. On the planned routes I would rarely have seen the Spree, even if the map looked like it was close to the Spree, the river could often only be heard at best. I've tried to compensate for this with a few off-grid sections, but have refrained from doing too many experiments given the length of the planned tour. The second problem was the too high proportion of asphalt and slab paths, especially for the length. On the one hand, this was due to the inevitable sections of the Spree Cycle Path (with invariably considerate cyclists, thank you very much!), And on the other hand, it was due to the fact that not all of the planned routes worked. Komoot had me plan a path that runs in a restricted military area, which gave me a long stretch on a bike path parallel to a country road. It was still okay for a stage on the Spree, but I cannot recommend the tour outside of such a project. The most beautiful section was the way to Spremberg on the left bank of the Spree (part of the bike path, but without asphalt and close to the river), I also really liked the half-timbered church in Spreewitz, which is located on a small hill.

Our Whit Monday tour took us to the Dahme Lake District. From Prieros we went over the Dahme waterway and through the forest to the Frauensee, where we hiked on a beautiful path on the south bank. From there it went over forest paths to the NSG Dubrow, a forest area with a high proportion of beech. East of the holiday camp "Kiez" we reached the Wooden Lake and hiked near the shore on a high path with many views of the lake. Shortly before Teufelswerder there is a picnic table on the way, which in itself would not be noteworthy - but behind it there is a beaten path that leads directly to the shore as a detour, a quiet place for a break. The main path continued to Schmöldesee, here the path is usually only slightly elevated, and there are often beaten paths right by the water. We left the water at the Huschtesee bathing area and hiked along a beautiful forest path to the An der Dubrow road and from there back to the starting point.
The round is highly recommended, the many large motor yachts on the Schmöldesee were a bit annoying, the waves of which visibly washed away and damaged the shore. From the point of view of the route, I liked the last part of the forest path on the way back so much that I would hike it twice if I had to repeat it and omit the paved section of the way there (on which cars are also allowed to drive).

Actually, I wanted to tackle the next stage of the Spree, but the constant rain that was so popular in the southeast of Brandenburg made me look for an alternative. And because the forecast for the Uckermark in the afternoon was okay, I decided to do it and started extra late. The weather was then also acceptable, although it often drizzled and the sun didn't show up, it didn't really rain until the last few meters.When planning the tour, I made a conscious decision against the 'hotspots' of Blumberg fish ponds and the Grumsin core area in order to explore the lesser-known areas to the west of them. That worked to a certain extent, there were many beautiful passages through forests with a high proportion of beech and lakes, but you shouldn't hike afterwards ...The tour began at Wilmersdorf train station (near Angermünde). I walked along the street to the train station, a little to the north on the country road, over the railway line and then parallel to the tracks to the south. The path and a country road led me to Steinhöfel, where I looked at the village church from the second half of the 13th century (with a boarded tower from 1720), the village smithy (Steinhöfler Straße 12) and a half-timbered house from 1800 (Steinhöfler Straße 39) . I left the place to the south and walked past the cemetery over fields into the forest (signposted direction Luisenthal).
Shortly after the Luisenthal residential area, I came across the Märkische Landweg and followed it to the Schönebergsee, a short path that was not listed led directly to the lake. Then I went further south, one branch was so inconspicuous that I missed it at first. I came across the side street between Glambeck and Görlsdorf, where there were two memorial stones next to each other: with the first, the Nazis celebrated the completion of the street in 1934 as part of the 'immediate program 1933', the other commemorates a 19-year-old who died in 1945 ...Here I could not go the planned paths because they were not allowed to be used for nature conservation reasons. That's why I hiked along the road until I found a way to the south that only had the usual no-entry sign, but via unmarked paths (some with tree obstacles) I got to the Redernswalder See, its eastern tip I circled. I continued to the east, I came across the Märkische Landweg again and followed it south to the Wolletzsee. I hiked along the northwest shore, which I didn't know yet - since there are paved and paved back roads here, this part of the lake is nowhere near as attractive as the east side. I crossed the catfish and reached the sacred lake. Then I followed the yellow line path west to the Glambecker mill, walked south on the east bank of the mill pond and walked parallel to the Grumsinseegraben, which I also reached at one point.We continued through beautiful forest to the southeast. I came across a side street and followed it past the village of Grumsin to the Großer Grumsinsee, which I reached directly in two places, at the second there was a small swimming area and a rest area. Then I wanted to go back to the road in a larger arc, but the marked path turned out to be a meadow, at most a path could be made out in places. Since the improvisations made me feel bad and it made practically no difference whether I was on a "path" or off-grid, I left out Neugrimnitz and hiked south on the edge of the meadow. Shortly before the motorway underpass (and after crossing a pasture fence) I came across the planned route again. I hiked on the circular route around the Grimnitzsee (Autobahnparallelweg, priml) to Althüttendorf, past the post windmill, an observation point and the swimming area. On the Grimnitzseerundweg I hiked further west, shortly after the Seehotel I left it. Has anyone ever created a ranking list for "Most beautiful last kilometer before the train station"? For me, today's end point Althüttendorf would be right at the front, I really liked the beautiful paths first through the forest and then over the meadows.

Today there was a very nice short circuit around the Glasowbach with a picnic trip to the banks of the Krummen Lanke in summer temperatures. What was new for me was the path east of the Glasowbach, which we particularly liked because of the light falling through the young beech leaves - but because you usually don't get close to the creek here, the western path belonging to the Baruther line is the more attractive one.

On our tour today we explored the Sperenberg gypsum quarries and Klausdorfer clay pits as well as the evidence of brick production near Klausdorf, which was very beautiful and varied, an absolute recommendation! Only two small things did not work: The path in Klausdorf between Pappelallee and Bahnhofstraße contained in the map does not exist, so we had to go back the same unattractive route after the detour to Mellensee. And in Sperenberg, unfortunately, you couldn't get to the former train station from this side.

The Hohe Fläming in Brandenburg is well-known and well developed through marked hiking trails. The southern part of the Fläming in the Saxony-Anhalt nature park is less well-known, and the Komoot maps are sometimes quite incomplete. Today I wanted to explore this area on a tour, the start and end of which can be easily reached with the RE 7, even if only every two hours. Everything went well, including the timing, and the areas in which there were no recorded routes were unproblematic. I liked the combination of forests and fields with the Elbe meadows, the passage on the naturally meandering Olbitzbach was particularly beautiful, even if the paths did not run directly on the water.The tour started at Jeber-Bergfrieden train station. Right next to it is the former school, in which there was a branch of the nature park administration, but it looked as if it had been given up. I left the village via Rotdornstrasse and first walked along the Landwehr monument, which is around 700 meters long. I took a dirt road to the right and turned left at the edge of the forest, I followed this path to Bräsen. At the entrance to the village, I crossed the Rossel for the first time. After a round through the village I walked a meadow path parallel to the Streitbach / Zehntbach and into the forest, behind the quarry pond Kohlenschacht I took the branch to the right. I first hiked west and then south to the Totschlagberg, which is so called because a disinherited son is said to have killed his father here. From here a forest path led me to Buko with the village church of St. John from 1724, which is well worth seeing.I left Buko and walked west on a dirt road. On the way to Düben for the first time I had to use unmarked meadow and forest paths that led me to the country road shortly before entering the village. In the village I circled the village church of St. Petrus, left it via the Kliekener Weg and walked on an asphalt path to the stone mill. There I came across the Olbitzbach and initially hiked south of the creek on unrecorded paths into the forest. In the area of Roter Berg / Ockergruben I wanted to cross the stream, but the crossing turned out to be a ford. A little way down the stream I found a place where I could get to the other side with dry feet. I hiked on through the Klieken monastery forest, first parallel to the stream and later on the Roßlau - Coswig railway line, where I crossed the Faulen Graben. Since I couldn't find any other sensible spot, I first crossed the railway line on the road between Luko and Roßlau.After a bit parallel to the road I went back into the forest. Since the paths of the planned route were partly overgrown, I went back to the street and after a while left into the pine path. Here I had to cross an industrial park. On the other side of the country road, I took the test road into the Elbe meadows. There are many former military facilities here, which were built between 1936 and 1939 and used by the Soviet Union after the war; the bridges are not allowed to be crossed. I reached the Elbe and hiked on paths near the river that are not listed, but are obviously legal to walk, there were even boards explaining tree species. I left the bank and went to the Roßlau moated castle. Unfortunately, the area was closed, so I circled the castle (with a detour to the Jahn monument) and hiked through the Elbe meadows again. I crossed the Rossel and walked down Südstrasse. Here you will find the house where the architect Richard Paulick was born, who was responsible for part of the former Stalinallee in Berlin and the reconstruction of the Unter den Linden State Opera in the 1950s, as well as an eccentric paddle wheel from an Elbe steamer. After taking a look at the confluence of the Rossel and the Elbe, I went to the train station, where the tour ended.

Today's tour went through two smaller nature reserves north of Luckenwalde, the Rauhe Luch and the Bärluch. The Rauhe Luch is a moor that is increasingly silting up due to the sinking water table. The Bärluch consists of swamp forests, mixed oak forests, wet meadows, moors and moor lakes, here we spontaneously took a forest path that was not included in the map material and led us past a nameless lake. At the end we passed the still operating gravel sand opencast mine in Ruhlsdorf. Overall, a not spectacular, but nice tour on mostly pleasant paths, only in the area of the Bärluchs we had a piece of gravel road.

The very beautiful E10 section over the Ofenberg is probably known to many Brandenburg hikers. Today we explored the area around it and found that there are many other attractive paths through an interestingly shaped landscape.However, the tour started with a bit of disappointment. From Tremsdorf we went south-east towards Mietgendorf, because a Komoot highlight called "Idyllic resting place" was luring, the photos promised a direct view of the Grössinsee. On site we discovered that the short way there for nature conservation reasons is not allowed, so we left it with a view of the Nieplitz and turned back. From there we followed the Fontaneweg F4, first along the Königsgraben, then on an asphalt path in the direction of Ofenberg. On the other side of the country road, the beautiful section through the forest began, we left the F4, crossed the E10 and hiked through terrain that was in part heavily cut. The road situation deviated significantly from the map material in places, but this did not cause any major problems. On a wide forest path it then went to the southwest, then at the edge of the forest in the direction of Tremsdorf. After a short stretch of the E10 through the forest and another path on the edge of the forest, we reached Tremsdorf.Addendum: I wanted to ask Komoot to delete the "forbidden" highlight so that there are no false incentives. So far I have always clicked "other problem" in such cases and said in a few words what the problem is. Now there is a sub-item "Access on foot or by bike prohibited", which only opens a link to a page with a long instructive text and another link to a multi-page online form that not only asks for the name, address and telephone number of the user , but also asks to name legal bases, to link information, to upload maps, etc. Overall, it gives the impression that Komoot does not want such information as much as possible. In any case, I didn't want to do that to myself and tried the old way, let's see if it works.

Today's third stage differed significantly from the first two low mountain range tours. There were notable differences in altitude only at the beginning, otherwise it was characterized by two large artificial lakes and the Upper Lusatian heath and pond landscape. Many beautiful passages led along the Spree. I only had to use roads and combined cycle paths for short sections, in particular there was hardly any overlap with the Spreeradweg. And because practically all of the 'experiments' worked, it was a really nice day of hiking with partly sunny and partly hazy weather.
