Damit der Sommer 2020 unter dem Regime von Covid-19 »mit Abstand« der schönste wird: Auf zur Landrunde in die Uckermark! Von Berlin ist man je nach Verbindung eine gute Stunde unterwegs und vor Ort begegnet so nahezu keine Menschenseele. Die Landrunde ist durch einen roten Punkt auf weißem Hintergrund 🇯🇵 durchgängig gut markiert.Wir waren im Sommer und Herbst 2018 an mehreren Wochenenden unterwegs und haben die zauberhafte Landschaft der Uckermark mit Luftmatratze, Schlafsack und Tarp (wenn überhaupt notwendig) erobert. Unbeschreibliche Sternenhimmel und das brandenburgische Jedermenschensrecht (das Pendant zum schwedischen »allemansrätten«) haben uns friedliche Wochenenden beschert, ohne dass wir Urlaub nehmen mussten. Und an (nahezu) jedem Friedhof gibt es Frischwasser.Wir haben uns vielfach selbst versorgt, aber auch gute Gelegenheiten am Weg nicht verstreichen lassen. Im trockenen Sommer 2018 verbat sich jede Form offenen Feuers. Und im Übrigen gilt selbstverständlich: Leave no Trace.In der Regel sind wir am Freitag nach der Arbeit losgezogen und nach zwei Übernachtungen in der Natur mit der Bahn nach Berlin zurückgekehrt. Wer volle Züge vermeiden will, sollte die letzten Verbindungen von der Ostsee aus vermeiden oder einen Zug nehmen, der von Schwedt aus losfährt.Das Jedermenschensrecht findet sich in § 22 Abs. 1 des Brandenburgischen Naturschutzausführungsgesetzes (BbgNatSchAG):
"In der freien Landschaft darf jede Person …. Fuß-, Rad-, Reit- und Wasserwanderer sowie -wanderinnen dürfen in der freien Landschaft für eine Nacht Zelte aufstellen. …"
We started at the train station in Templin. The route initially went along the canal towards Röddelin, but turned sharply north just before. In Röddelin, however, we filled up fresh water again.From there it goes across meadows and fields. Originally we thought we would continue to Glambecksee, but because of the darkness falling we went to bed on the edge of a field.
2nd part of our hike. On the entire route we met - apart from the localities and at the "little church in the countryside".The cemetery in Neu Placht initially gave us fresh water and the "Draisinen-Oase" a hearty second breakfast. It continues along sandy paths to the "Little Church in the Green" in Alt Placht.The path to Glambecksee is somewhat hidden from the Chaussee to Gandenitz. The lake is very worthwhile; here we enjoyed our somewhat late morning shower.The path through the forest from Gandenitz to Warthe is a little difficult to find in places. We were very happy to lead Komoot. The forest is dark and cooler - and we haven't met anyone. In Warthe we were able to greet the evening with a dip in the water.
Get recommendations on the best single tracks, peaks, & plenty of other exciting outdoor places.
From the Great Warthesee, the country circuit first leads along the edge of the forest through the hilly, glacial landscape before turning slightly into the forest to the north.There are now several bathing opportunities - first lonely on the steep bank (e.g. Dietloffs Lust) and then a large bathing place on Schumellensee. At least officially no car is allowed to go there, which was not necessarily followed in 2018, unfortunately. At the end of the stage there are several restaurants in Boitzenburg or connections to public transport, sometimes as a call bus.
This stage was probably the loneliest of the country rounds. We came to Boitzenburg on Friday evening with a small bus (possibly call bus, look at VBB) and from there to the north out of the city. The route led along forest paths and smaller cobblestone streets to the three-emperor oak, where we set up the night camp.Lake Naugarten was the ideal morning bath. Via the Gollmitzer mill, the path led through more open landscapes.The route on the (former) railway line from Templin to Prenzlau was difficult to pass. Here the path was partly overgrown in 2018 and the gravel and the sleepers were not nice to pass.We were able to shop well in Prenzlau. The 2nd night camp was a bathing place on the Unteruckersee.
This stage of the land tour led us from north to south along the Uckerseen. You can walk them from Prenzlau without any problems; we had our night camp on Lake Unteruckersee.From Seehausen station, the path went through the wilderness in 2018, where long pants would have been advisable.If the weather is good, you will meet some cyclists along the lakes.
From the Warnitz train station, the country tour continues to the southeast, initially up a few meters. Apple trees, which we were able to use in autumn 2018, line the path again and again. Each tree had different tasting apples.After the Wietblick (farsightedness) in Melzow it goes a little down through the forest and along a hardly used cobbled street over the highway to Schmiedeberg. There we found - for the first time at a cemetery - no tap.Then the landscape opens again and the path continues through the fields. We were able to "fill up" in Biesenbrow and were then able to camp on a nearby hill.In terms of cuisine, this stage was certainly the most interesting - so many abandoned fruit trees and shrubs accompanied the way.
The fourth weekend of our tour led from Angermünde on Friday along the beautiful Wolletzsee through forest and meadow routes to Peetzig to the Peetzigsee, where we set up our night camp, a few meters southeast of the northern tip.In the meantime it had become clear autumn, which caused a varied play of colors in the ice age landscape. It was still very warm during the day, but at night we noticed the moisture near the lake. And the jump into the water became more difficult at Wolletz and Peetzigsee.
The next stage of the country round led almost straight from east to west. Here again we had the joy of changing colors and landscapes. First of all, especially on hiking trails, the route leads from Poratz over an old cobblestone road, which is hardly used.Luckily there has been a train connection in Ringenwalde again since 2019 and there is a nice restaurant nearby ("Gasthof zur Eisenbahn") where we could eat.On the way we left the "Landrunde" for a few hundred meters and did not take part in a dangling.We set up our bivouac at Lake Libbesickesee. You have to be careful here, because a large part is a nature reserve where the right to camp does not apply.
Almost melancholy, we set off on the last stage of the "Uckermärker Landrunde". From the Libbesickesee to the west we were on the road for a while on a much more urban area, at the latest from Ahlimbsmühle.The round trip then led via Petersdorf to the Lübbesee, which is lined with many houses. Hardly anyone was on the way, but we didn't feel alone anymore.And then suddenly Templin and the train station, where there was just enough time for a beer and the French fries. After four weekends in nature, this farewell to the country round came almost suddenly. It was very worth it.
