S-Bahn Berlin planned a hike.

  • S-Bahn Berlin

    If Berliners fancy greenery and nature, then Strausberg is always a popular destination. In addition to the lake of the same name, not only the vast forests, but also several remote lakes invite to discovery tours. Hidden in the forest, west of Strausberg, lies the Fängersee. It is connected to the nearby Bötzsee via the Fredersdorf mill stream. A circular path leads you around the tree-lined shore around the lake. There are even small swimming spots to refresh you on your hike in the cool water.Every 20 minutes the S-Bahn line 5 takes you from Berlin to Strausberg Stadt. You get off the train and walk in the direction of Straussee. Along the shore, you stroll along the promenade past the open-air swimming pool in southern direction. At the southern tip you circle the lake. On a wide forest road it goes now into the forest. Even in midsummer, it stays pleasantly cool in the shade of the tall trees. At an intersection, turn left and shortly thereafter you will reach the shore of the Bötzsee. This is not the goal of today's hike and so you turn right here. After a few meters the path meets the shore of the Fängersee. Just pick your favorite bathing spot while you circle the lake. After splashing in the water, head back through the forest towards Strausberg. On the west bank of the Strausse you get on the ferry, which brings you comfortably over the lake. From the ferry dock it is only a short walk to the S-Bahn station Strausberg city.
