My 6th foray into the book "Berlin off the beaten path" by Mirko Moritz Kraetsch was quite spontaneous. After looking out at 7:00 a.m. at the beginning of the sky and another look at the weather report, there was only one thing: I don't go to the office in the morning!I started at Treptower Park S-Bahn station and wanted to go from there from Treptower Hafen along the banks of the Spree in a northwesterly direction. Unfortunately, due to extensive construction work, all routes to get there were closed. I first came to the water via Eichenstrasse.After enjoying the sunrise spectacle, I walked back past the "Arena" venue.
The whole area here used to be an extensive industrial area. Kraetsch writes: 'The complex is dominated by a hall from 1928, which was one of the largest cantilever halls in Europe at the time and was used as a bus depot. Since it was given up by the BVG in 1993, it has served as an arena...'Now we continued on the Puschkinallee to the Schlesische Brücke along the former border system, which is now used for a green area, the Schlesischer Busch. From the bridge you have a beautiful view of the upper lock, which connects the Spree and the Landwehr Canal. Shortly before you could also look at the Flutgraben, where some restaurants have settled.Now begins SO36, a term that comes from the former postal code for this part of the district and which now has a notorious touch. The saying "36 burns, 61 sleeps" also shows where something is going on in the district. The 61 stands for the former postal code SW61, which covers the western, more bourgeois and conservative part of Kreuzberg, while the 36 stands for the eastern and poorer area, which was and is always a social hotspot.On the left in Schlesische Straße I discover the Lido, a former cinema from the 1950s. In this corner, before the Wall was built, a veritable cinema mile was created. You could pay here with West and East marks, and a corresponding number of East Berliners made pilgrimages across the Spree in the evenings for entertainment. Since 2006, the Lido has been a club with live concerts.I pass the Tabor Church, the Fatih Camii Mosque, the Church of St. Marien-Liebfrauen and lots of Kreuzberg life with restaurants, snack bars, pubs and shops of all stripes in the street zigzag, until I come to the Görli. Everyone calls it that, the Görlitzer Park. This area used to be the large area of the Görlitz train station, which opened in 1866. From 1951 passenger traffic was discontinued due to the proximity to the Soviet sector and only a little freight traffic for coal, for scrap and for a forwarding company remained. The train station was demolished. Gradually the rest of the activity died down and in the 1970s the people of Kreuzberg slowly took possession of the site. In the mid-1980s, the Görlitzer Park was created with a children's farm, park pond, hills with beautiful panoramic views and a hollow in the middle, which has its own history. Under the former station area there was an approx. 180m long tunnel, which we as children always found quite scary with its sparse lighting and the extreme smells (it was also called the urethra). This tunnel was torn down and the "Kuhle" was created. An entrance railing with a handrail that disappears into the ground is reminiscent of the tunnel.
Of course, it must not be concealed that the Görli currently has a pretty bad reputation. Drug trafficking, disturbances of the peace, illegal immigrants, police raids, crime and general filth make many fellow citizens avoid this actually beautiful park.Now it was in the direction of Neukölln, past the brick building of the former Kreuzberg substation, via the weekly market on Maybachufer, briefly on the Kottbusser Bridge and then along the Kottbusser Damm to the end point of this foray at Hermannplatz.Source: Book 'Berlin Off the Path' by Mirko Moritz KraetschThis was my 6th foray.

Anyone who goes multi-day hikes knows that there are always unattractive sections. In any case, today's tour was such a sweetheart that you really didn't need it. However, the ambition to master the entire castle hiking trail allowed us to persevere stoically. Miles of dead straight paths past huge and deadly boring fields, especially in winter, or supply roads that were just as long and drawn like a ruler along thousands of Brandenburg pines demanded everything from our minds. Almost simultaneously, the four of us (Regina, Jörg, Floh and I) thought of the song "Brandenburg".Who plans such paths? I would love to chase these path planners over this course at least once a week :-).But we still had our fun and chatted, fooled around or teased as much as we could. Every bend in the path was taken like a highlight and a real 90° turn was celebrated like a summit ascent.This stage did not come without a real highlight either. Ziesar with its castle and monastery as well as other interesting buildings is worth seeing and a visit.Here are the tour descriptions of the other participants:

It was time again for a foray into the book 'Berlin Abseits der Pfade' by Mirko Moritz Kraetsch. I chose the circuit in Friedrichshain, but started at the Oberschleuse in Kreuzberg because I know my way around there better and know where I can find a parking space relatively easily.From there it wasn't far to the Oberbaum Bridge, after which I reached the starting point of my actual tour just in time for sunrise. The round ran on both sides of the railway line between the Warschauer Straße and Ostkreuz stations.The first highlight was the RAW site, which consists of the rest of the Reichsbahn repair shop, which was a bit worn down and was therefore particularly typical of Berlin. In the early hours of the morning it was absolutely dead, but I enjoyed it. In the afternoon, the bear tapers here, this cultural location under the umbrella of the RAW-Tempel e.V. is one of the most colorful and varied in Berlin.Now we went north into the residential areas formerly known as the working-class district, past the Wagenplatz in Revaler Strasse, past the Church of Revelation, through the Knorr promenade, past Wülischplatz and Helenhof, until the striking water tower from the Ostkreuz could already be made out (more details on the places listed under the highlights).Now I switched to the Ostkreuz station on the southern side of the railway line, where I leave a huge area of Deutsche Bahn on the right. Certainly one or the other of the former rectifier works from 1928 or the facilities of the former Lower Silesian-Märkische Eisenbahn would have been interesting for me, but no access could be discovered. One should rather take part in a guided tour of the various development associations.The next two stops were a welcome change after so much urban planning and railway technology: the Laskerwiese community garden and the gardening school, both of which are definitely worth seeing (see also the corresponding highlights), especially since you can take a nice break here.After I had passed the Emanuel Lasker School with its sports facilities and playground, I continued in the direction of the Zwingli Church, a church that was visible from afar thanks to its high tower, before I headed for the Modersohn Bridge. A popular corner for locals and tourists, because from here - especially at sunset - you have a wonderful view towards Ostcity.The last major stop on this tour was the "Oberbaum-City", which can be tackled easily from Warschauer Platz. You can of course also approach it from the east, as I did. Fans of industrial architecture get their money's worth. There are many stories, big and small, about the waterworks, the Narva factories, the weaving school and much more. Wonderful how much has been preserved and now used for new purposes. It is best to stroll through here yourself and form your own picture.Source: Book 'Berlin Abseits der Pfade' by Mirko Moritz KraetschThis was my 5th foray.

For a long time this project was in the drawer for one day. Today, on Boxing Day, I spontaneously decided to go this round in freezing temperatures.Wikipedia introduces as follows:
"Hansa-Viertel" was the original name for a residential area founded in 1874 between the Spree and the Great Zoo. The name Hansa-Viertel was chosen to remember that the building quarter was developed by the Berlin-Hamburg real estate company "Hansa", which mainly consisted of Hamburg entrepreneurs, that connected the area to Hamburg through the nearby Hamburger Bahnhof as well as the Spree and Elbe was or is and finally because Berlin belonged to the Hanseatic League in the 14th and 15th centuries. About 90 percent of the houses were destroyed by Allied air raids in World War II.
"Hansaviertel" is the name of the model settlement in the southern Hansaviertel between the Great Zoo and the tram route. The southern Hansaviertel was planned in 1953 and, as part of the Interbau International Building Exhibition in 1957, was built between 1955 and 1960; it is considered a demonstration object of modern urban planning and architecture of that time, classical modernism or post-war modernism. After 1957 the name Hansaviertel became synonymous with the southern Hansaviertel.Next (excerpts from Wikipedia):
The history of the new Hansaviertel is closely linked to the overall urban planning for Berlin after the end of the Second World War. The architect Hans Scharoun was commissioned by the Allied Control Council in 1946 to develop a concept for redesigning Berlin. The collective plan was created under his leadership. The inner city areas should be developed much more loosely than before, and the city should be interspersed with green spaces as much as possible.This concept should apply to all of Berlin. But there were exceptions, including in the particularly badly damaged Friedrichshain district. After a tentative start, the company was rigorously canceled. The GDR, which was newly founded at the end of 1949, is now based on the Soviet monumental architecture for its representative building project - the Stalinallee (later: Karl-Marx-Allee) was created. Thus, the two idealized building concepts Stalinallee versus Hansaviertel had become part of the Cold War.

A little afternoon round together with Bernd and Lothar in the Palatinate. In cloudy, wet and cold weather, it was not easy to get high-contrast motifs or bright colors in front of the lens. Highlights were the many wide views over the undulating landscape, the sections through beautiful forests and of course the barbeque hut run by the Palatinate hiking club.
I would have liked to have done another, perhaps longer, lap in this area, but unfortunately there was no time for that. So I'll have to wait for the next year when I have to go "down" for maintenance work near Kaiserslautern.

When browsing outdooractiv.de for hikes in the area of Dresden, the elephant stones caught my eye and I decided to go this round. In terms of the weather, the lap was rather not so nice, because high fog completely prevented the foresight and everything was covered in white veils. From the hike, however, I found the route to be great. Consistently natural forest paths, this tour would also be possible for barefoot hikers. From the smallest, rooted paths to wide harvester aisles, everything was there, but no stone slabs, no asphalt (except for very short stretches through the village of Horni Sedlo) and no gravel.I copied the report in outdooractive as follows:"The hike in the German-Czech border area has several interesting aspects to offer. Beautiful forest paths alternate with lonely narrow paths and lead past beautiful rock towers made of sandstone at regular intervals. Already on the way to our destination, the elephant stones (white stones / Bílé Kameny / CZ), we pass the striking Oberweg stones, which are beautifully lined up shortly before the small village of Horni Sedlo and attract numerous climbers. Climbing on the natural monument "Elefantensteine", however, is strictly forbidden. This unusually white rock is worth protecting Over the course of millions of years by glaciers and weather influences, it was smoothed to its present-day shape.
The sandstone rocks of the "Ziegenrückens" (Kozi hrbety) near the Trögelsberg (Vysoká) may be normal rock formations in the midst of an idyllic landscape for a hiker - for those interested in geology the evidence of a geological disturbance opens up, in which, to put it simply, at the end of the Cretaceous granite layers were pushed onto sandstone layers and the latter were erected at an angle (Lusatian thrust). As on all sandstone rates (also e.g. in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains), the comparatively undemanding pines and birches predominate, while beeches grow on the nutrient-rich soils of basalt or slate mountains such as the Trögelsberg.
The numerous small "ear bunkers" of the historical Schöberlinie, a former fortification belt with a total of 9100 of these concrete positions between the Lusatian Mountains and the Elbe near Hrensko, which were built in the 1930s to protect against the Germans, form a strange contrast to the natural sandstone rocks . They were never used due to the Munich Agreement of September 30, 1938, which obliged Czechoslovakia to evacuate the Sudeten areas from October 1, 1938. We meet these contemporary witnesses in many places on our hike. In some cases, the bunkers can hardly be distinguished due to vegetation with the moss-covered sandstone cliffs and some serve as a foundation or elevation for hunters' high seats. Most of them are freely accessible inside so that you can get an impression.
So that the view is not neglected during the tour, a wonderful all-round view of the surroundings is offered on the Pfaffenstein (Popova skála / 565 m). If the view is appropriate, we can even see the distant summit of the "Jeschken" (Jested / 1012 m) near Reichenberg (Liberec) with the striking common television and hotel tower.
All in all, a scenic and quiet tour that has no technical difficulties and is only classified as moderately difficult due to the length. "

After what felt like an eternity - it was three months - finally another weekend hike without time pressure, in normal length and with wonderful company 😀. In addition, the weather also played a role.
Regina, Jörg, Floh and I started shortly after 8:00 a.m. in Jeserig with an almost mystical atmosphere. The still low sun and the hoarfrost enchanted the landscape and us.
We walked the entire route uninterrupted, except for short sections in villages, on natural paths over dirt roads or through different forests from settlement to settlement. The highlight was of course Rabenstein Castle, where you can climb the tower for 3 euros per person and marvel at the surrounding forests 😉. In addition, we could have participated in a guided tour, which we gave ourselves. Instead, we allowed ourselves some refreshments at the court kiosk.
We concluded with a stop at Gasthof Lehmann in Garrey, where we reviewed the tour. We agreed that this is a highly recommended hike. However, if you like to walk past bodies of water, you will not get your money's worth here, except for the village pond in Jeserig or the river Plane. Interesting about this is a statement from a farmer with whom we spoke at Lehmanns. He said that the area around the Hohe Fläming is a very humid corner and that there are no problems here, even when it is very dry in Brandenburg. Other regions have a harder time in their fields, although there are many lakes nearby.To the tours of the fellow campaigners:

We had our second night in Demir Kapija in the Vardar district at the Popova Kula winery. We would have liked to have taken a lap through the vineyards in the late afternoon, but it was raining heavily and the temperature had dropped significantly into the single-digit range. So we enjoyed our dinner and the excellent wine, a 6 year old Cabernet that was made here.
We did the little tour in the morning after breakfast.

An absolute highlight and recommendable without restriction is the archaeological site of Stobi, which we visited on our way back from Demir Kapija to Skopje. After all the ups and downs - both in terms of the landscape and our mood - this wonderfully well-kept open-air museum made up for a lot. We followed the circular route and were always overwhelmed by what has survived from the Roman era.This was our last stop on our short trip through the west of North Macedonia. Time to draw a conclusion. After building a facility at Skopje International Airport 22 years ago, we kept coming back for maintenance work and so we followed the changes in the country. The times of KFOR, the political changes, the tensions between religions as well as the Balkan countries, the influence of the EU and much more have left their mark.The metropolis of Skopje is the political figurehead. Many magnificent buildings, statues, fountains, hotels and restaurants characterize the city center around Alexander the Great, monitored by Kale Castle, which towers above everything. As a counterpoint to this, the Muslim-oriented old quarter is definitely worth visiting. The outskirts are then rather poor. The socialist influence can be seen everywhere. Another highlight of the capital is the local mountain Vodno, to which a cable car goes up. But it can also be climbed on foot. Tours in Skopje: komoot.de/tour/45025496, komoot.de/tour/45122197, komoot.de/tour/95588436.From a tourist point of view, the pride of the North Macedonians is - and rightly so - the city of Ohrid with the unique Lake Ohrid. The deep and ancient lake with its unique fauna, including the famous Ohrid trout, which only lives here, is worth a visit in itself. But the city also has a lot to offer. Many different sacred buildings, Roman remains such as the amphitheater, shops, restaurants and a pedestrian zone to stroll through. In addition, there is the environment, from which the hiking area in the Galičica National Park is to be highlighted. Tours in and around Ohrid: komoot.de/tour/96122526, komoot.de/tour/96189273, komoot.de/tour/96148753.All in all, it is worth visiting this country, mainly for explorers, pioneers, hikers and those interested in history, less for families with small children. A week with Skopje, Ohrid and Stobi can easily be filled. If you add a few more hikes, you can live here for 14 days.Of course, these are all my own impressions. Other visitors, but also locals, may see it very differently. But maybe our tours encourage you to visit the country and see it with your own eyes.

I was really looking forward to this place. A town and a lake in the middle of the mountains. The travel guide also promised a lot in terms of tourism, beach life and the promenade. Maybe there is really something going on here in summer, the many closed beach structures at least suggest it. As we strolled here there were only a couple of very large restaurants open waiting for guests. Otherwise, a lot of things were in poor condition and also quite dirty. So no comparison to Lake Ohrid, which is a real pearl in North Macedonia (komoot.de/tour/96122526, komoot.de/tour/96189273).
