    Schlachtensee, Krumme Lanke, Teufelssee and Grunewaldsee - everyone knows the lakes in Grunewald. But attentive hikers can discover even more in the big forest. Southwest of the Teufelssee lie in a depression of the lake Barssee and the Pechsee. Both lakes are remnants of the last ice age, but that is also true for the other lakes in Grunewald. The two small lakes are unique because they are the lost lakes. As Berlin's groundwater level has steadily dropped in the last 100 years, the two lakes have gradually silted up. From the Pechsee only a small pond is preserved, the lake Bars has disappeared completely except for a bog area. Nevertheless, life thrives here, because many unique plants grow on the marshes. Both lakes are now under protection and they strive to maintain their current water level permanently. From the station Grunewald you can start your discovery tour to the Lost Lakes.Every 10 minutes, the S-Bahn line 7 stops at the Grunewald station. Through the tunnel, it goes under the tracks and you're already standing in the Grunewald. A wide forest path leads between the huge oaks, beeches and pines along the sand pit. Below the sand dune lies the small Teufelssee and the Ökowerk. At the Teufelssee you will find a swimming area, which is also visited by nudist friends like. The path winds its way through the forest to the nature reserve Barssee and Pechsee. Here are information boards along the way, which explain the emergence of the bog areas. After your tour around the two lost lakes, you will hike through the forest back to Grunewald S-Bahn station.
