... today a hike in the area around Kyritz, which I had planned for a long time. The further northeast railway line of the 'Prignitz Express' offered as a starting point perfectly.The tour led along the Dosse through beautiful forests, past the remarkable castle Karnzow and then at the dam 'Dosse memory' (Obersee) and along the Untersee along to Kyritz.A highly recommended tour, I would recommend imitators, however, omit the arc on the highway to Rossow and instead use the Plattenweg along the train.-----------------Information and tour description:This tour starts at the train station of the 'Prignitz Express' in Fretzdorf, first Teetzerstraße is followed in the village into the village green, then it goes in a curve on the village road to the village exit, where two arms of the Dosse are crossed. Now the path leads - for lack of alternative - on the highway about two kilometers through the forest on the edge of the former military training area Wittstock ('Bombodrom') along to the next town Rossow.Here you turn off at the church, cross the railway line via Bahnhofstraße, then cross the motorway on the Teetzerstraße bridge. Then follow a very beautiful section of the forest path always near the Dosse for a few kilometers to the crossing of the river Teetz. In Teetz is changed back to asphalt, on the very quiet Wulkower road it goes briefly over the fields and then through dense forest in a southwestern direction.At a 90-degree bend of the road, continue straight ahead along the forest path, which, as an old tree-lined road, leads for four kilometers through the forest to the tiny settlement of Karnzow with its magnificent castle, which unfortunately can only be inspected from the outside. After a very short section along the heavily used country road, the path leads to the long-drawn dam 'Dosse-Speicher', which is also referred to as Obersee in this area.On a great narrow forest path the sandy demolition edge is followed to the water up to the dam in Stolpe. Passing some weekend house settlements, it then goes on the Heinrichsfelder path to the Untersee, after leaving the sandy track, the Uferweg here also presents itself as a beautiful narrow path above the lake. After passing through other small collections of buildings, the beach Kyritz is reached, then it is bent on the natural path next to the Seestraße, which extends to almost three kilometers to the center of Kyritz.After crossing the Jäglitz, it goes through the Stadtgasse and the Maxim-Gorki-Straße to the very beautiful market place and after crossing to St. Mary's Church. Via the J.-S.-Bach-Straße and the Domstraße, the path leads into the rose garden and through it. At the western exit, the end of this stage is finally reached via the Poststraße with the station Kyritz.
Unknown land ... 😉👍
Thank you, Klaus! For me as well a 'white spot' so far.The 'Bombodrom' was last in the media almost 10 years ago because of the still planned extreme low-flying and bombing tests of the Bundeswehr. Meanwhile, this is all history, the heath conquers the terrain back and there are even first trails there off the heavily ammunition-contaminated area.
That's great! Can I still remember the topic!Have a nice Weekend! 🙋♂️
A really nice hike and great photos, Frank! 😀
