Today didn’t really want to get going. In the literal sense.Originally I wanted to start from Karstedt. Unfortunately, due to a train cancellation, the railway thwarted my plans. ☹️That's why I had to reschedule spontaneously and start from Wittenberge. However, Wittenberge is always worth a trip and due to the good long-distance train connections it is always a good starting point. Said and done.The sun was only partially visible at the beginning and the wind always came from the front. From 1:30 p.m. the sun finally came out, so that today I had 20.2 ° C on the bike. Since I was able to take a few days off these days, nothing kept me in my four walls after the long, cold days. 🙂This time I mainly wanted to drive off the beaten track. To experience a little more original Brandenburg from the beginnings after the fall of the Berlin Wall. And yes, such places really still exist. Places where you have simply attached a bike path sign to a cobblestone path or think that the field in front would be great for bicycles. Let's put up a sign.Therefore, this time I can say that it is a tour that includes almost all of the path conditions.After 38 km I paused in the Plattenburg, one of the oldest moated castles and certainly one of the nicer ones. By the way, a large parking lot was built in front of the place of the same name. I suspect that the castle is otherwise a tourist magnet. However, everything is currently in lockdown, due to a pandemic. There is also a fresh fish sales and a small snack. Pandemic closed.Here is a little video about it:By the way, I noticed numerous herds of cows and horses along the way.Whenever I drove through one of the villages, I attracted attention. Why? I was the only cyclist on the entire route. Also on the train (there and back) the only one in the bicycle compartment.Somehow I felt like the first person to explore this region. 😉I think it was also because of the current insane pandemic that I was the only one to venture out. And that in the middle of the week. In any case, I only had human contact from afar. I got into conversation with one or the other farmer, who then usually classified me as a newcomer. When I replied that I actually came from Wittenberge and lived in Berlin, I received incredulous looks. You have probably never experienced anything like this before. So with the bike. Well, there were also places that you usually pass by:Perleberg, Uenze, Werzin, Kletzke, Glöwen, Nerzow, Bendelin are just a few places that I haven't had on my map to this day.At kilometer 72 I actually found an abandoned house on the roadside. Practically in nowhere. The pictures show the decay and that nature is slowly taking back the place.In Neustadt an der Dosse I got back on the train and was back at the Zoologischer Garten station in no time, where today's journey began.

Nice tour and great pictures, the weather is now almost perfect for cycling again 👍
Ahhh, so you wanted to go to Karstädt 😉 well something ... 👍👍👍Exciting tour description. Some things seem familiar to me ... If there is a way, we put a sign on it 🚲 🙄
@ Uwe: Thank you very much I try to take full advantage of the few sunny days! Who knows what's coming. 🙃@blackcharly: Thank you very much. Yes, you still had the tour on your screen. I modified it a bit. The castle is definitely worth seeing, even in the current slumber of pandemic.Otherwise it was just a tour of discovery for me, as I had to realize that I had completely forgotten this corner. And so much worked: Somehow forgotten by the rest of the world. 😋
Great report, thank you very much.

@Naschty; Thank you, you're welcome 😁
Ducky, I agree with you. I was on the tour today. Little traffic, a lot of agriculture, few but very friendly people .... I'll definitely take another look at the corner .... I'm sure you can still drive a few combinations
@blackcharly: Thank you very much.Let's be clear: it's worth taking a second look. 😉👍

That is how fast it goes with the decay. Today's ruined house shone after the fall of the Wall in a snow-white, glowing robe with brand-new blue windows. That should have been around 25 years ago. By the way, the place is called Krüllenkempe and consists of about 10 houses. 😊
