    This hike takes you flat and calm into the area between Glücksburger Heide and Dübener Heide. The starting point of the 16-kilometer tour is the Jessen train station, which you can reach either with the regional train or the S-Bahn. If you take a look out of the train window shortly before arrival, you might be able to take a look at your first stop: Jessen Castle.With its yellow facade, the building that houses the city administration stands out clearly. On the outskirts you will already meet the Schwarze Elster, whose course you are now following. Water-rich ditches run through the landscape parallel to the river again and again. You can listen to nature while you walk.Quietly, with no tourist destinations or towns on the way, you hike kilometer by kilometer to Elster. Shortly before you reach the city, you should definitely take a look at the confluence of the Black Elster with the Elbe. It is important on this tour that you pack enough water and snacks, because apart from your starting point and destination, you are hiking through deserted nature.
    You then leave Elster again with the regional or S-Bahn via the local train station.
