    This view is named after Oberdeich inspector Simon Leonhard von Haerlem. Under his direction, the course of the Oder was straightened from 1747 and thus drained the Oderbruch. By draining the wetland over 32,000 hectares of arable land could be obtained. From here you have a wonderful view of the wide landscape of the Oderbruch. At the lookout there is a small rest hut and information boards where you can read a lot about the dike construction.

    Wonderful place on the Oder. Here you should take your time and stay. You can watch wonderful waterfowl and also learn interesting facts about dike construction.

    Wonderful viewing and resting place. Information boards inform u.a. about the dike construction and the history of the Oderbruch.

    The Oder cycle path is especially beautiful in this section (Lebus - Hohnwutzen) and here shortly before Kienitz.

    Memorial stone for the dike inspector Simon Leonhard von Haerlem near Sophiental. His greatest achievement was the drainage of the Oderbruch. His calculations for straightening the Oder were confirmed by the mathematician Euler.
    He lived from 1701 to 1775.
    A nice place for a leisurely break.
