July 26, 2018
In summer, a large number of bathers travel to Bad Saarow to splash and swim in the Scharmützelsee. In autumn, on the other hand, especially the huge forests in the area attract to extensive hikes. On our round trip you will visit three highlights in the woods: in the west you will explore the old clay pits and in the north you will find the largest foundations in Germany as well as a fantastic panoramic view from the lookout tower. The hike continues on narrow hiking trails and wide forest roads through the peaceful mixed forest.The RE1 leaves every 30 minutes from Berlin Central Station, Ostbahnhof or Zoologischer Garten to Fürstenwalde. Here you change to the regional train 35 and about 10 minutes later you reach the train station Bad Saarow. Here you walk along the beautiful lakeside promenade and follow the hiking trail into the forest. After a short walk through the clay pits. The path then meanders through the hilly forest towards the north to the Margrave stones. The two huge boulders bear the names Großer and Kleiner Markgrafenstein. Interestingly, today is the Small Markgrafenstein the larger of the two boulders. In the middle of the 19th century, more than half of the larger boulder was blown up, transported to Berlin, where it made a huge granite shell. You can still admire these today, because it is in the Lustgarten in front of the Berlin Cathedral. Only a few meters from the boulders is the lookout tower. It goes up 45 meters over many steps and at the top, high above the trees, you have a fantastic view. Through the forest it goes back to Bad Saarow. If you feel like it, treat yourself to a slice of cake in one of the cafés before returning home with the RB35 and the RE1.
