visitBerlin planned a bike ride.
June 11, 2019
In the south of Berlin are two of the six Berlin housing estates, which were created during the Modern Age and which were included in the UNESCO World Heritage in 2008. This beautiful bike ride through Neukölln including a small detour to Brandenburg connects the two settlements together to a nice round of meadows, fields and great bike paths, which correspond to the course of the Great Wall cycle path over long distances.You start at the S-Bahn station Grünau, which can be reached from the center quickly and comfortably by S-Bahn. Here you swing on your bike and take course on the horseshoe settlement, which got its name because of its distinctive shape. The way leads there mostly over the wall path, which runs straight on this section over an excellently cultivated asphalt stripe along the Teltowkanals.Later, you can cool down in the shady Britzer Grünzug before you hit the wall path again. Meadows and fields on the left, Lichtenrade on the right, you now roll south. Past memorial stones and information boards and past a small dirt park for mountain bikers. Maybe you can watch a few bikers doing their airy maneuvers while resting yourself.It stays airy, if you continue to Schoenefeld. From the wonderfully quiet bike path you have a perfect view of the (old) Schönefeld airport, where you can watch the airmen take off and land, while in the background, on the grounds of the (new) airport, BER probably does nothing.Another quick look at the water buffalos, which actually graze left of the bike path and you have the last highlight in front of your destination: the garden city Falkenberg. Lots of greenery and the intense colors of the houses make for a special atmosphere, which you can soak up in peace. Because the S-Bahn station, from which you come back to Mitte, it is from here only a stone's throw.
