Like a mountain stream, the Schlaube gushes in front of you through the narrow valley. The footpath meanders along the course of the river, leading you underneath the slopes as you crawl over major trunks and duck under fallen trees. A dipper jumps from stone to stone in the stream, the knocking of a black woodpecker echoes through the forest, and you notice fallen trees all around—the result of the area's healthy beaver population. In just a few steps, you emerge into a peaceful opening as you stand on the shores of an enormous lake. Looking over to the other side, you see two eagles circling overhead. Welcome to the wilderness of Brandenburg.

The Schlaubetal Nature Park offers a unique landscape and wild experience to all who visit. The 27-kilometer long (16-mile long) valley is a result of the Schauble's constant gushing over millennia, carving out this magnificent landscape on its way to the Brandenburg plain. From its source to its mouth, it flows through several lakes and has left behind a fertile natural area in the valley; one that is surrounded on all sides by thick forests and countless animal life. In fact, hardly any other region in Brandenburg is as rich in fauna as the Schlaubetal—and many animals are only found in this valley.

To help you experience the best of the area, we have prepared a four-day hike through Brandenburg's wilderness. Covering a total of 72 kilometers (44 miles), you'll hike from Müllrose up the Schlaube river to the source, crossing natural mixed forests and visiting quiet lakes as you go. For the sake of convenience, the first and the fourth stage are designed in such a way that you can arrive and depart on the same day without any problems. From Berlin, it takes about an hour by car or about one and a half hours by train to Müllrose where you'll find dozens of cozy accommodation options.

If you prefer, you can shorten the second stage by about five kilometers (three miles) and then hike back to the main track on the third day – you can find this alternative at the end of the hike. You will then save a total of around eight kilometers (five miles) and will be able to enjoy the picturesque landscape in an even more relaxed manner.
