The wheel of the old post mill rattles comfortably next to small historic villages and manor houses - hardly imaginable, but still a reality in the Marzahn-Hellerdorf district, which is otherwise known for its prefabricated buildings that can be seen from afar. Get on your saddle and explore the rural-village area on this varied tour, which is skilfully hidden between traffic hubs and business parks.At the Mahlsdorf S-Bahn station you get on your bike and cycle along Hönower Straße, out of the city and towards the Berlin balcony. This small but clearly visible slope is a relic of the last ice age. With a height difference of up to 15 meters, the border between the Barnim plateau and the Berlin glacial valley becomes clear. We continue to the Kaulsdorf lakes. A cool bath is not allowed, but a break in the shade of the trees is.Rolling past the Biesdorfer Höhe, you arrive at the Biesdorf Castle Park with its architecturally unique castle. If you like, you can have a coffee here. For a short distance you follow the S-Bahn tracks, then the course of the leisurely flowing Wuhle. The Kienberg on your left is not only worth seeing because of its slope beds. Probably the shortest cable car in the world also leads up to the hill here.After a short detour through Hellersdorf, turn off towards Marzahn. The village center of Alt-Marzahn transports you to another time and enchants you with its beautiful post mill. A place to slow down and yet so close to the hustle and bustle of the big city. From here it is only a stone's throw to the end of the tour at the Marzahn S-Bahn station.
