... today again a stage of the Havel complete hike, as always with this project together with Cornell. On this stage I was particularly curious, since I knew no section except for the city of Brandenburg / Havel.The core of the route made a good 12-kilometer section on the Havel dike, which is a partly bumpy meadow completely natural and allowed its use for pedestrians. The views from the approximately four-meter-high dike to the Havel and into the flat hinterland were sensational, but the landscape formations repeated themselves over time. Nevertheless, for me the absolute discovery of the day.The beautiful dike path is very remote, the change is 'bought' by the celebration of two strenuous long bike sections at the beginning and towards the end of the tour.Here is the recording of Cornell:komoot.de/tour/42588769And as always the reference to the accompanying book 'The Havel' by Manfred Reschke:trescher-verlag.de/reisefuehrer/deutschland/havel.html---------------------Information and tour description:This stage starts at the bus stop 'Rathausstraße' in Ketzin, first the way leads through the village on the Nauener road past the former railway station, then it is turned into the Brandenburger Chaussee. Now the bike path is used next to the road over almost three kilometers, it goes past numerous flooded former sound engravings.At the road 'Am Deich', which leads to the peninsula Kietzwerder, is then bent to the beginning of the flood dike the Havel. The path on the dike only a few meters high is natural and easy to walk, it usually runs very close to the waters of the Havel and their side arms. This results in many beautiful views of both the Havel itself and the flat hinterland, some swimming areas are also to be found.After the more than twelve kilometers long section on the dike, it continues a short distance on the bike path, then the small town Saaringen is crossed. Now leads a meadow along the Havel shore, which later becomes very sandy and turns over the fields past agricultural facilities. After a short section of the forest, the only part of this stage, the village Klein Kreutz is reached. Past the church, it goes over the village road to the end of the village, then on an approximately three-kilometer bike path section next to the Krakauer Landstraße to the lock Brandenburg / Havel.After crossing the lock bridge, follow the Alte Krakauer Straße, then the Grillendamm, and the path leads over the Domstreng waters to the Domhof with its cathedral and the Knights Academy. Then it goes on to Mühlendamm and over the whey market to St. Catherine's Church. Through a narrow lane, the path leads to Paulinerstraße and on to the Paulinerkloster. After crossing the adjoining city canal, the train station in Brandenburg is reached via Friedhofstraße and Kleine Gartenstraße, at which point this stage ends.
Nice tour, which I have only done by bike (very close to so). Therefore, great respect for the hiking performance. 💪I find it interesting that the walk took Cornell 5:17 and yours 7:12. That is a clear difference?
You two have proven their stamina again. Great tour and very well documented!Very nice close-up of the grayscale.
Thank you, Dirk & Manuela!
