Schönes Barnimer Land – #HüttenTour
Krombacher planned a hike.
March 19, 2021
A hut tour is as much a part of the Alps as the sand is to the sea. But hut hopping is also possible in Brandenburg. Instead of massive rock faces, there are delicate purple heather blossoms, instead of ice-cold glacier lakes inviting beaches and instead of the tree line, boundless forest romance awaits you. Sounds great? It is.In Basdorf, north of Berlin, you hop off the regional train and dive into the wilderness of the Brandenburg forests after just a few hundred meters. On beautiful summer days, the pines are warmed by the sun and spray a unique ethereal scent that lets you breathe deeply again and again.Your first stop on this varied circuit is the picturesque Gorinsee with its crystal clear water. If you have swimwear with you, it is worth taking a dip in the cool water. You cross the Basdorf-Schönerlinde hiking trail and head for the Schönower Heide. The first hut is waiting for you on a small hilltop. Take a seat and enjoy the panorama over the heathland, which is so typical here.It goes on and back into the forest. Only one and a half kilometers later, a large roof with massive wooden benches appears in front of them. The Gorinhütte is a wonderful place to take a break with a fireplace in the middle and exciting information boards about local plants and animals.You walk past an orchard meadow through the fragrant coniferous forest. The last hut on the tour is waiting for you at a crossroads. Almost an entire house with cozy benches outside and plenty of space inside, in case the weather doesn't play along. Take all the time in the world to observe the nature around you. It's not far from here and the round ends.
