    From the summit of the Großer Ahrensfelder Berg you have a stunning view of the skyscraper landscape of Marzahn-Hellerdorf and the Brandenburg beyond. Towards the west, the television tower stands out as a lonely champion of the Berlin skyline from the city.

    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.

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

    At 114.5 meters, the western summit of the Ahrensfeld Mountains is the highest point in the north-eastern district of Marzahn-Hellersdorf. The smaller of the two hills is 101 meters high. The surveys are on the border between Berlin and the Brandenburg district of Barnim, directly on the Wuhletal.The Ahrensfeld Mountains were created as narrow walls made of loose material, so-called Oser. At 66.9 meters, the western summit was almost half as high as it is today.Between 1981 and 1991 the Ahrensfeld Mountains were used as a building rubble dump. The western elevation 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 residents. In 1991 the landfill there was closed and a far-reaching redesign of the local landscape park began.In 2008, the western hill was raised by 3.5 meters and converted into a viewing platform. From the western summit, both the Berlin television tower and the Brandenburg area can be seen. In contrast to the Marzahn high-rise estate is the view over Brandenburg's wind turbines.There are two ways to reach the viewing platform on the western summit. The first trail goes south up the mountain and splits halfway. There you have the option of taking the path to the smaller mountain or the one to the viewing platform. The second way to the top of the western hill is a beaten path on the north side. It is steeper than the first path and has no direct connection to the smaller mountain.Source: berlin.de/sehenswuerdheiten/4678519-3558930-ahrensfelder-berge.html

    A nice change for flat Berlin with a high-contrast view. One side of the city.

    A great view and panoramic view. If the weather is good, you can theoretically see the TV tower.

    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 ...

    Worth seeing, especially now with the signs of spring as a frame.
