Tips

  • Carola „Bandit“ K.

    In the midst of the otherwise flat, urban environment is the large Ahrensfelder Berg, which can be climbed from two sides. The view is well worth the effort.

  • From the summit of the Großer Ahrensfelder Berg you have an amazing view of the high-rise landscape of Marzahn-Hellerdorf and Brandenburg behind it. To the west, the television tower protrudes from the city as a lone warrior on the Berlin skyline.

  • At 114.5 meters, the western peak of the Ahrensfeld Mountains is the highest peak in the north-eastern district of Marzahn-Hellersdorf. The smaller of the two hills is 101 meters high. The surveys are located on the border between Berlin and the Brandenburg district of Barnim, directly on the Wuhletal.

    The Ahrensfeld mountains were created as narrow walls of loose material, so-called oser. At that time, the western summit was 66.9 meters, almost half as high as it is today.

    Between 1981 and 1991 the Ahrensfeld mountains were used as a rubble dump. The western elevation thus grew to 112 meters. With the end of the GDR, the two mountains were used as a place for waste disposal by parts of the Red Army and the local residents. From 1991 the landfill site there was closed and a far-reaching redesign of the local landscape park began.

    In 2008, the western hill was heaped up by 3.5 meters and converted into a viewing platform. From the western summit, both the Berlin TV tower and the surrounding area of Brandenburg can be seen. In contrast to the Marzahner high-rise settlement is the view over the wind turbines of Brandenburg.

    There are two ways to reach the viewing platform on the western summit. The first path heads south up the mountain and splits halfway. There you have the option of taking the path to the smaller mountain or to the viewing platform. The second way to the top of the west hill is a dirt track on the north side. It is steeper than the first trail and has no direct connection to the smaller mountain.

  • For the otherwise flat Berlin a nice change with a contrasting view. One side city. Other side of village idyll.

  • The Ahrensfelder mountains are natural mountains created during the Ice Age.
    They are located on the border to Brandenburg on the Wuhle.
    From the top you have a fantastic view of the Brandenburg Land but also to Marzahn and Hellersdorf.

  • The Ahrensfelder mountains are the highest elevations in the surrounding area and offer a good 360-degree view. From here, a large part of Berlin and Brandenburg can be observed undisturbed.
    In the east you can see many fields, forests and isolated some wind turbines that are used for power generation. If you are looking to the west, you will see a large part of Berlin from the high-rise buildings in Marzahn-Hellersdorf to the TV tower in Berlin-Mitte and on clear days much further.

  • If the Kienberg is the eastern counterpart to the Teufelsberg, then the Ahrensfelder Höhe is the counterpart to the Drachenberg ...
