Tips

  • Tom & Freki🎗

    The area comprises the former clay mining area of the earth mountains southeast of Glindow. They are a holdover from the brick and tile industry. This landscape, which is not typical of the Mark Brandenburg, was created as a waste dump for the extraction of clay.

    Surefootedness is required on the idiosyncratic stairs

    It is already strenuous to climb the excavation of the former clay pits.

    The "Glindower Alpen" nature reserve is located on the northern edge of the Lehnin-Glindow moraine plateau and begins behind the southern shore of Lake Glindow. From the 15th century, the clay quarrying necessary for brick production created deep gorges up to 30 m deep. The peak of clay production was reached around 1900. The overburden was piled up to earth walls and so-called "earth mountains" and in the depressions "earth mountain lakes" were created. After the terrain with the clay deposits was no longer productive, it was left to its own devices and nature gradually reclaimed it. Due to these unique circumstances, this area with its special flora and fauna exists today.
