Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The Bullengraben is one of the 20 "green main routes" in Berlin. These paths run through the green corridors of the city and connect in a very beautiful way neighboring neighborhoods. The Bullengraben is the shortest way with its seven kilometers. It runs only in the district of Spandau from the Berlin border near Seeburg to Havelufer south of the old town of Spandau.
The Bullengraben itself was already used in the 7th century as a cultivated moat and served from the 1960s as a drainage ditch of the district Spandau. Today the area is completely recultivated and serves as an idyllic landscape park. As a symbol, the artist Sebastian Kulisch made a steel sculpture. The "Bullengraben Bulle" was unveiled for the opening of the recreation area.

Wikipedia says: "The Bullengraben is a moat in Berlin's glacial valley that was already cultivated in the 7th century. It lies in the Berlin district of Spandau and leads from the old village center of Staaken about five kilometers to the east to the Havel, into which it is, in the last piece, underground piped to the north of the Spandau castle wall. Used for centuries to meliorate the wet lowlands, the trench has been used as a drainage ditch since the 1960s to absorb rainwater from the surrounding Spandau city quarters contrary."
