About KlausBraus

Weltenbummler, Kreuzfahrer, Wanderer, Hobbyfotograf. Lebe in Oranienburg.
Mehr oder weniger zufällig wieder ans Wandern gekommen. Als Kind und Jugendlicher durfte/musste ich an vielen Wochenenden mit meinem Vater im Saarland und Rheinland Pfalz an zahlreichen "Volkswanderungen" teilnehmen.
Weiss gar nicht ob es die heute noch gibt. Es gab Tage da wurden um die begehrten Medaillen zu sammeln 2 x 10-20 Kilomenter "geschrubbt". Nicht immer ein Vergnügen für einen jungen Menschen.
Aber irgend etwas von damals ist wohl hängen geblieben. Ich will meine alten Knochen wieder in Form bringen, und das Bäuchlein auch und habe wieder angefangen schnell zu wandern. Klappt bisher ganz gut.
Papa wäre stolz auch mich.
Bei den Listungen "Experte" und "Pioneer" bin ich nicht dabei, habe ich abgeschaltet - für Kinderkram bei dem man Punkte auf der Couch durch "gefällt mit" erwerben kann bin ich nicht zu haben.Videos zu den Touren findet ihr hier:

      That went a little better today. Tempo not quite like "in the old days" but acceptable. The route is known, I am now using it to regain my fitness. Try 20-25 KM on Sunday.

      After a long time, finally a round without pain in the foot - that will probably be slow. Well-known trails take you along the Havel, Oder-Havel Canal and Oranienburger Canal in great weather. As it looks, I'm back at the start.

      On to the 2nd stage of my project. It starts at Löwenberg train station at a sunny but fresh 10 degrees, first in a small eastern arc past Löwenberg and then briefly meet the railway line again in Gutengermendorf.
      After Gutengermendorf you turn left and follow a very dreary path with little variety for about 5 kilometers. I don't like this section that much because of the temporarily closing sky and a lot of wind.
      But that will change fundamentally from Meseberg onwards. The sun breaks its path and when the weather is great you can see Meseberg Castle, the guest house of the federal government.
      Then a great, narrow hiking trail leads east around the lake and this section is worth this tour alone. Great views of the Huwenowsee, and then the paths past the Kleiner and Großer Dölchsee. Great to run and very relaxing.
      Before Gransee then the "ascent" to the watch tower from which a beautiful view of Gransee and the surrounding area is possible. Unfortunately it was closed today.
      A detour through the well-tended Gransee is always worthwhile, many old renovated buildings, the well-preserved city wall and the church are pleasing to the eye.
      Conclusion: Apart from the first boring kilometers a really nice hiking route with a lot of variety and great impressions. It is only 5 minutes to Gransee train station where the RB 5 is reached.
      Here, as so often, the video for the tour:

      Today no hike from Brandenburg, today a short circuit in the Taunus Nature Park. Very unusual for me, because you know, I don't like vertical meters and then I had a total of 490 of them. Actually, I wanted to do at least 15 kilometers, but the approaching thunderstorm front inspired me with respect.
      I really enjoyed the short lap. Great landscape, well-tended agriculture and cool sections of forest will invite me here more often.

      This is now the start of my new hiking project. From Oranienburg to Warnemünde-Mohle. It will be 7-8 stages. I will march the other sections on this route at irregular intervals.
      Today, so to speak, from home along my beloved Oranienburg Canal to the Oranienburg water road intersection. Here it goes away from the city in a westerly direction parallel to the Ruppiner Canal, which is crossed over the "Kuhbrücke".
      This is followed by a really nice to walk part to the north, nice through light forest and very pleasant to walk in the current heat.
      This comes to an end about 2 kilometers before Neuhof, it goes under the plump sun, past green fields and paddocks until it becomes shady again behind Neuhof.
      Neuhof is a small hamlet, consisting of maybe 10 houses and belongings and a bus stop. A bus actually runs here twice a day.
      At the entrance to Neuendorf, turn right and pass a well-kept holiday home to the "largest Plötzsee". This is a very small, idyllically situated body of water with a nice bathing beach. The right place to take a break. About 1 kilometer behind is the even smaller "Kleine Plötzsee".
      The path after that leads out of the forest for a long time through fields and meadows and also about 1.5 kilometers directly past the B96 with the corresponding noise.
      From the junction to Grüneberg it goes back through the forest in a straight line to the Löwenberg train station.
      Today it was not quite that long a hike, but with temperatures around 30 degrees it was also sufficient.
      The video of the tour is here:

      This is now the last big part of my "Mauerweg" project. I walked the western and central wall path in one stage, so now it's the southern part.
      But today is somehow not quite my day. I can't find a rhythm and I can't keep up with my usual pace. The last 4 kilometers are quite difficult for me, the heat has certainly contributed to this.
      About the tour: I am happy to finish this part because it is poor in sights and leads many miles past fields and through forest. In some places there is proper operation of cyclists, that is not the case on the other parts of the Wall path that I am walking.
      The monotonous paths and the heat really shot me up. Take a look at the photos and the short titles to experience the tour. Recommendation for this only for "marchers".
      I make up for the small swivel at Babelsberg, which is now still missing for the entire round.
      Video follows as always here:

      Long planned and undertaken, today it was time. Mauerweg center. I was able to walk the last kilometers with accompaniment and interesting discussions with our hiking guru Frank Meyer.
      I already have the western part, the south follows in autumn. The missing intermediate piece Wittenau - Hennigsdorf will be pushed in between at some point.
      The photos and highlights already describe a lot, and the route should already be known to some, at least in sections, a lot has already been published here.
      Already at the start in Schönefeld a good rain was waiting for me, but that can't be annoying. A large part of section 1 leads along the A113, with the inevitable noise from the motorway, which the noise barrier also only insufficiently insulates.
      Interesting the part through Neukölln (again with rain showers) and of course the well-known tourist spots in Mitte.
      From the Humboldthafen, hiking friend Frank Meyer accompanied me, who with his knowledge was able to explain many new and unknown things here in the center of the wall.
      Due to the many chatting, the photo and video documentation came up short.
      Thanks to Frank for taking the time. I found the two hours very entertaining and informative.

      The Stechlin should be this time. My wife also wanted to accompany me on a not too long route, so I quickly fulfilled my wish. The Stechlin is often the target of hikes and described here sufficiently. We only walked along the riverside path, in the wonderful natural reserve of Stechlin. Although Sunday was surprisingly little going on the route, few cyclists and even fewer hikers.
      After a little over half we reach the canal that supplied the Rheinsberg nuclear power plant with cooling water. The power plant is partially dismantled and completely gutted.
      With the drone, beautiful pictures of the lake and the nuclear power plant were taken.After almost three hours we were already around the lake and there was an extensive rest in the hotel / restaurant Louisenhof in Neuglobsow. Highly Recommended.

      Many thanks to Wolfram for the relay delivery.
      Melchow? I did not know. Actually, I only know part of the whole corner there, and only with car / public transport. Planning a tour here was really appealing to me. A quick look at the map - Werbellinsee! So the main goal was set, now only one route has to be arranged - it is always pretty wild for me and regardless of marked hiking trails or overgrown paths.
      At first it is a long way through forest. Interrupted by a wild fence that stands in the way of the planned path. It looks new, so excuse Komoot. I'm now practicing unhooking and hanging back the support wires - so the fence is not a major obstacle. The A11 is crossed and Marienwerder and the part of the Finow Canal reached there. Very nice the big church there and continue north. The canal is crossed again at the barrier and on the right it goes past Pechsteinsee to Grabowsee. A ramshackle footbridge is used there - be careful! Try it, otherwise 3 km detour.
      Following the Webellin Canal and past Eichhorst, the Werbellinsee is reached quite quickly. A short break to strengthen yourself and continue past the "Rapunzelturm" to the south-west. If you run after the lake, please do not immediately follow my route but take a path higher up - this will lead you to the alternative route. Komoot led me past several beehives (no problem) on a path, then no path and then nothing into a wetland overgrown with nettles with a treacherous swamp. There was certainly never a viable option. It is quite exhausting to get out of here and up on the alternative route. My loud swearing has surely reached Potsdam.
      It also goes through the pinnacles, which are hardly visible. So a case for the drone, just like the barrage and the advertising line in front of it. Groß Schönebeck is reached 45 minutes before the planned departure time of the train - here I have to go back to see everything. The interesting and beautiful hike ends at the train station there and I hand over the baton to Felix. I'm curious where the stage will take him.

      Today not a "circuit" but a (as so often) wildly planned route from Lehnitz to Mühlenbeck Mönchmühle.
      The tour first leads a few hundred meters along the railway line before heading east into the forest past Borgsdorf. On the route a fairly well preserved marksman's rifle from WWII, quite interesting.
      Through the Briesetal, which is often hiked by others, we continue to Summter See and from there the last kilometers to Mühlenbeck. The originally planned route is currently not working, due to the construction site on the A 10 some underpasses are closed. It is also very pleasant to walk around the corner through a well-kept allotment area.
      I liked the relatively short hike. Again with video:
