    Very nice hiking trail between Berlin and Potsdam along the Havelufer, usually a bit offset from the lake on a hill. This gives you a very nice view of the Havel. In very beautiful places, the Senate has set up benches.

    The trail ends at the beach Wannsee, but also in between, there are some quiet and small swimming spots, such as at the Lieper Bay. But it should not get too hot anyway, because you usually walk in the shady forest.

    The Havelhöhenweg is part of the 20 green main routes of Berlin and was planned 100 years ago. A virtual tour can be found here:

    If you want to stop in the middle, you can do it at the beer garden on Grunewald.

    Between Lieper Bay and Strandbad Wannsee for me the most beautiful hiking trail in the Berlin city area.

    Great and quiet trail - the best in the Berlin city area. The less leaves on the trees, the more you can see from the Havel.

    The Havelhöhenweg leads along the steep banks of the Havel, from the Heerstraße in the north to the Strandbad Wannsee in the south.
    Its length is about 10 kilometers and leads past numerous destinations. The trail runs largely above the Havel Uferweg on the western edge of the Teltow Plateau. The slope to the Havel lowlands is at the maximum (above the Stößensee) at about 35 meters. To cross former meltwater channels, the trail leads down to the shore path at various points.

    Just great, this way. In the middle of a city of millions a beautiful, very long forest path through hilly terrain

    A really wonderful and varied hiking trail high above the banks of the Havel. In summer, when the trees are densely leafy, you rarely have a clear view over the river.

    Up and down in shady surroundings. The view of the Havel is only limited by the dense foliage possible.
