When the leaves start to fall, when squirrels start to gather their winter supplies, when the sun no longer rises quite as high above the horizon — it can only mean one thing: Fall is here. Now, it's time to get the fleece jackets out of the closet and to wax the hiking boots. When the city gets quieter this November, you should definitely go out into the nature to do the last longer this year. With a cosy jacket, warm woolen socks and a thermos with hot coffee, your autumn outing can start right away.

So you can make the most of this season, we have put together ten fantastic autumn hikes around Berlin. At Schlachtensee, you'll enjoy the colorful leaves of oak and beech trees, at the Karow ponds you can observe the migratory birds that can only be seen at this time of year — and over the Mariendorfer Feldmark you'll witness the stunning mist that cuddles the landscape like a giant blanket.

All our hikes can be easily reached with the Berlin S-Bahn or the regional train. And with a mouth nose cover and a little distance to the other passengers, you can get out into the countryside safely on weekends.

Now, all you have to do is make up your mind: Whether you head out for a short walk or a real day-hike, it's all up to you. Just browse through our hikes and let yourself get inspired.

In times of Corona, our tour suggestions are mainly one thing: inspirations for hikes and bike tours in the near future, when the everyday restrictions are less strict. Please stay healthy, protect yourself and other people. Avoid any unnecessary travel — if the urgent desire for fresh air lures you out on our tours, please observe the distance and hygiene rules. By the way, FFP2 masks are mandatory in the Berlin S-Bahn!

    When the postman rings your doorbell these days, he is usually on the bike that was filled in one of the many distribution centers. But that was not always so. Fully packed carriages rattled with horses harnessed over stone-paved forest paths from Hamburg to Berlin. With this wonderful autumn tour you will follow the traces of the Alte Hamburger Poststraße deep in the undergrowth of the Krämer forest.

    Do not worry, you read that right: This tour does not lead you to Krummen Lanke in Grunewald, but to Krummen Lake in Grünau. Parallel to the Dahme and Regattastrecke the Krumme Lake meanders, here as sluggish river, through a virgin mixed forest. In late summer the mosquitoes are dancing here in the sunlight, but in the autumn a special …

    Are you in the mood for a long day hike? Then the Hohe Fläming is the right place. From Bad Belzig you hike through pine and beech forests, along hilly fields and through small, sleepy villages to Wiesenburg. Absolute highlight on this tour: The Hagelberg. With a height of 201 meters, it is the second highest elevation in Brandenburg. At …

    In summer, a large number of bathers travel to Bad Saarow to splash and swim in the Scharmützelsee. In autumn, on the other hand, especially the huge forests in the area attract to extensive hikes. On our round trip you will visit three highlights in the woods: in the west you will explore the old clay pits and in the …

    Around Berlin, wide forest areas join, but in the south are wide, open meadow landscapes. Especially on the wall path between Lichtenrade and Lichterfelde you can enjoy the wide view over pastures and fields. If the sun is low here in autumn and the morning mist is hovering over the fields, then this is the best time for a hike.

    While the shores of Lake Schlachtensee are visited by many bathers on hot summer days, you can enjoy the water and the silent forest all by yourself here in autumn. The lake can be completely circumnavigated on comfortable hiking trails. In the restaurant Fischerhütte on the northeastern shore of the Schlachtensee, you can warm up on particularly cool autumn days …

    Between Erkner and Woltersdorf lies the idyllic Flakensee. On its eastern shore rises the Kranichsberg. With a height of 104 meters, it is a pretty impressive increase - at least according to Brandenburg conditions. On the top of the mountain is a wooden observation tower, which offers you a wonderful panorama over the surrounding lakes and forests. The view in autumn is particularly beautiful when the leaves of the surrounding forest areas light up in the most beautiful colors.

    In the north of the garden settlement Frohnau is the small Hubertussee. The lake was originally created as a clay pit. Already around 1910 it was flooded and renatured. He was part of the new settlement plan for Frohnauer Forst. Another special feature of the forest dates back to this time: cobblestone streets had already been built before a first …

    The nature reserve at the Karower ponds is always worth a visit throughout the year. Countless birds live here on the wooded shores of the former peat bogs. In addition to ducks, swans, whales and herons, you can even see cuckoos and marsh harriers here. It will be particularly exciting for birdwatchers in autumn. Then large swarms of migratory birds settle on the ponds. Some of the birds only stay for a short rest, the others overwinter here completely.
