Hiking Highlight (Segment)
A very nice hiking trail on the Mühlensee. It is even almost barrier-free. A few benches to rest and enjoy and, above all, wastepaper baskets would not be bad, but this is still being discussed in the community.
The path to the Radeland peninsula is no longer accessible. There is now the Ponyhof in front of it. But since it's now a bird sanctuary, that too should be respected.
There are now also some parking spaces from which you can explore the lake, e.g. at the end of Mühlenweg in Schwante.

The Mühlensee is a 51.4 hectare artificial lake in the municipality of Oberkrämer in the Brandenburg district of Oberhavel. The lake was dammed in 1979 to irrigate the area for agricultural use. It has been part of the Nauen-Brieselang-Krämer landscape protection area since the early 1990s.
The lake is located in the small country of Glien in the municipality of Oberkrämer between the districts of Vehlefanz, Schwante and Neu-Vehlefanz. Surrounded by the lake is the vineyard in Vehlefanz, where wine was still being grown up until the 19th century. The lake is fed by the Koppelgraben and the Hörstegraben. It is a calcareous, layered lake with a relatively large catchment area of 33 km².
In addition to irrigation for agricultural purposes, the lake is now used as a local recreation and fishing area. Fish caught are pike, carp, zander and eel. Beavers and otters live at the lake. However, bathing is not advisable due to the phosphorus and nitrate pollution in the lake.
Between 2011 and 2014, public authorities built a circular path around the lake. Since it was sometimes not possible to use the shore, part of the way lies on several footbridges that are up to 190 meters long. The jetties go right through the water as they were built on community land after not all shore owners agreed to the development.
