So far I only knew Britz as a district of Berlin.Yes, you can learn a lot with komoot!I like this tour.I especially like photo 42: will you give me permission to use this photo?I would like to hold some forest encounters in front of their noses.
Thank you, Gabriele! You are welcome to use the photo with the ashtray glasses.

So when is tomorrow today? I'm so curious whether you liked the route, what you noticed or whether you yawned through nature and hoped that the game app works in the break house ;-)
@Andrea: Today is not over yet, is it 😅
The weather is too good to be over. So no. Take your time, I didn't mean to push you. Just increase the pressure a little ;-)
Many thanks to Andrea (vonWegen) for this beautiful tour template. Here is Andrea's tour: komoot.de/tour/313600259We start at around 9.15 a.m. at Britz train station (RE3) and initially walk through the town on side streets. Now we go a bit through the forest until we reach the river Cold Water. There is a large wet meadow biotope here that looks very idyllic, especially now that everything is green. After another part of the path through the forest and crossing the Angermünder Chaussee we come to the Ragöser Fließ on the edge of Neuehütte. The place no longer lives up to its name ... there is no longer a single hut 😉 But in the middle of the village you have a nice resting place at a parking lot with several tables and benches, some even covered.We continue on the Bachserundweg northwards around the Fettseemoor, of which you can hardly see anything. On an old cobblestone road, we follow the Way of St. James southwards to the Bachsee, a beautiful lake in the middle of the forest. Mosquitoes and countless other flying insects, which abound here, have been following us for a long time. Autan helps against the mosquitoes, only exercise against the rest.Passing the charcoal burner, we then reach the Oder-Havel Canal, which at first just looks like a hill in front of us. After climbing the dam, we have all the splendor in front of us, not only the canal, but also the blazing sun, which we now have to endure for a few kilometers. We then come to the other bank via one of the few bridges that cross the canal. In the snack bar we want to buy an ice cream around 11.45 a.m. The boss informs us unfriendly that it is only open from twelve. You just don't need to. After a short hike on the south dam, we descend from the dam earlier than Andrea, because the sun is bad for us. Along the Ragöse (Ragöser Fließ), which flows deep below the canal, we continue south on the Eberswalder city tour to the Finow Canal. At the Ragöser Schleuse we have our picnic at a nice resting place with a view of the canal. At the lock, a couple of young people celebrate on a raft, but they are otherwise peaceful.After crossing the Finow Canal at the sluice, we now walk on to the railway and along the railway for a while. Through small patches of forest and meadows we now reach the small town of Karlswerk. At the end of the village there are still the buildings of an old mill, which apparently is no longer in operation. After crossing the Mühlbach, take the Mühlweg to the Hohenfinow watermill and continue to Niederfinow to the train station. The gastronomic infrastructure is almost zero here. We decide to have an ice cream in Eberswalde. At around 3:15 p.m. we reach Niederfinow train station (RB60) and admire the funny house that is next to the train station. An old Trabbi was built into the wall of the house. Outside you can only see the back and inside it should be the TV table. At around 3:35 p.m. the train leaves for Eberswalde.That was a super nice hike through many forests, past rivers and a few lakes and many meadows, moors and wetlands. In the shade of the woods it was pleasantly cool, after all, the temperatures rose to 28 degrees today. The towpath on the Oder-Havel Canal was not very nice, but unfortunately it was impossible to avoid it. Here the sun really hit us. But overall the hike was varied and beautiful.
The name Britz is derived from the Slavic word Breza for birch.
Phew, I'm glad you enjoyed the hike. It's a bit like recommending a good book when you don't yet know whether the other person can do something with the words or whether they are struggling through the pages.How different everything looks now. I can well imagine that the path along the canal is very exhausting in the heat with sunshine, especially when you know that you also have the other side in front of you. I liked this section in February when the temperature was below zero as a change from the forest.Fortunately, no one cleared the obstacles before your day of hiking ;-)How do you know the Trabi is a TV table inside? Did you talk to the owner? Or is that somewhere?And 22.9 km ... then it goes up with Detlev's foot. Good news :-)Last year Britz was also the starting station for me for a nice hike (towards Chorin) - the template came from you.
We could very well start something with the words of your tour and have not tormented each other. Since we knew from the beginning why you chose this route on the canal, we endured it patiently. The way in the other direction was less than half as long and, above all, mostly in the shade. We knew that there were great stretches behind us and that there were still some beautiful sections ahead of us.As for the Trabbi, that's what the owner told us. He was sitting in front of the house, an Urbalina.Detlev's foot now seems to have almost healed. In any case, we're already running longer distances again.And I can still remember the hike from Britz to Chorin very well. It was beautiful and adventurous.
What. Before the train came on my last hike in Niederfinow, I had also talked to the trotting man - but he was standing on the balcony.In fact, I just had to first think about what Urbalina could be, my imagination briefly touched Spirulina, then Spirou and Fantasio, and then simply translated the a with he. Just like that.
I like the tour, the description and the photo documentation, Heiner. Your advice not to do this route in the blazing sun is also worth its weight in gold.
