Here is the link to Frank Meyer's complete campaign: komoot.de/tour/376180840And here are the hiked stages of “MitWandern 2021”: komoot.de/user/staffelAfter about two and a half hours of travel with replacement traffic and a bus ride from Lübben, we take the 506 bus to Groß Wasserburg. Our relay hike “MitWandern 2021”, stage 45, begins here around 10.15.
First we set out on the moderate ascent to Wehlaberg. In the Krausnicker Mountains we deviate a little from the given route and walk past the fire watch tower. Then it goes up to the Wehlaberg. Here we visit the observation tower, from which we have a very good view today. We continue on a steep hiking trail down to the Heideseen. There is a small rest area on the south bank of the Schwanensee, which was very shaky on our last visit. Today there is a renewed table and bench that make a very good impression.
Along the Swan Lake we reach the large refuge on Paul-Gerhardt-Weg, which easily offers space for twenty people. Here we take a little banana break. We continue over the small bridge that crosses the connecting ditch between the Schwanensee and Mittelsee. We now walk north along the Mittelsee. We saved the way around the Pichersee and now walk along the south bank of the Triftsee and on to the Schibingsee. There is a little problem here because the trail is closed by a wildlife fence. We walk on the beaten path along the fence and reach the shore of the Schibingsee. We're attacking the blueberries that are standing in abundance here.
Then we hike northwards and along a piece of Lake Köthen and through Neuköthen to the Dahme Umflutkanal, which we follow to the west. A beautiful hiking trail always leads along the shore to Märkisch Buchholz, which we bypass. Shortly after the weir there is a nice little rest area on the bank of the canal, where we can finally have our picnic.
Strengthened, it goes a bit along the lady and then first always parallel to the Dahme through the forest. Pine monoculture still predominates here, as is often the case in Brandenburg. The sun burns down on us mercilessly here, sometimes moderately due to more or less strong gusts of wind. Later on, on the Dahme, we reach the “Leseffahrte Waldweise”, a poetic hiking trail. About every hundred meters there is a board with a text by a well-known author. You don't really have to read all the texts 😉
The reading journey begins at the Hammer Forest District, which we now pass. Then we go on the final spurt, past Klein Köris, to Groß Köris to the train station. Before we reach it, we still have about fifteen minutes and treat ourselves to a soft ice cream from the ice cream parlor on Berliner Strasse. Around 6.25 p.m. we reach the right bus stop, where our hike ends. At around 6:36 p.m. we board the replacement traffic that takes us to Königs Wusterhausen.The whole thing is an interesting and varied tour, which was clearly too long at these temperatures. We had peaks of 25 or 26 degrees. The sun shone all day, which was only partially softened by the pine forests. Short gusts of wind brought some relief now and then.
Many thanks to the makers of “MitWandern 2021” for this great tour.

At around 9.55 a.m. we start our tour at Friedrichswalde train station (RB63). First we walk to the church in Friedrichswalde, where the service is just beginning. After crossing the railway line, continue on Döllner Straße to the west and into the forest.
At Großdöllner See we then reach the gate of Carinhall, a megalomaniac forest courtyard by Herrmann Göring. Only this gate and a memorial stone are left of the complex. The Waldhof itself was demolished after 1945 and the area renatured.
We continue to hike on partially straight paths through the Schorfheide to the memorial stone for Honecker's last stag. We overlooked the stone for Hindenburg shortly afterwards. For this we were able to look at the stone extensively in memory of the emperor's thousandth deer.
Shortly afterwards, we will have our little picnic at the rest area on the Kohlenberg. The way there is a bit difficult to find, the paths are overgrown. The path for the descent is very well preserved. The following path between the telephone frame and the caterpillar feeding frame, however, only exists on the map material. In kind it no longer exists. We then very quickly switch to the parallel main path.
We no longer need the next resting place below the Hirschberg, two benches with two tables, so we just walk past it. Shortly afterwards we reach the climbing garden at the Schorfheide Wildlife Park near Groß Schönebeck. Now it is not far to the place. Here we visit the church, the door of which is wide open, which is actually unusual for a Brandenburg village church. Then we find out that we have noted down the wrong departure times for the train, so we now have to wait almost two hours.
We use the time to walk to the Schorfheide hunting lodge, which cannot be reached, the gate to the park is firmly locked. The tourist information office is also located in this park. For the "gateway to the Schorfheide" it is probably rather embarrassing. The whole place Groß Schönebeck makes a rather deserted impression on Sunday, apart from the only open »pub«, the Döner Center. There we get a one-and-a-half liter bottle of Turkish spring water and sit down on Lindenplatz with it. Here we can still eat the bananas that I have with me.
At around 7:12 p.m., the Heidekrautbahn (RB27) takes us back to Berlin.The whole thing was a great hike through the extensive Schorfheide. We only met a few people in the forest. Due to the many beech, oak and pine trees, the paths were mostly shady, so that the 25 degrees were mostly easy to bear.
I "stole" the tour from somewhere, but I didn't notice where it came from. He or she can register here 😉 Then I can link the original tour.Here is some information about Carinhall, named after Göring's first wife, a Swede: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carinhall

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.

This is a repetition of our hike from December 26, 2020, only in the opposite direction (komoot.de/tour/297593237).We start our hike around 10:05 a.m. at the Schönfließ S-Bahn station (S8). We first walk to Schönfließ on the official beaten path through a rye field. The only thing worth seeing is the beautiful village church. Along the Beegraben it goes on towards Schildow. After a detour to the Katharinensee, we hike to the Kindelfließ, which we initially only cross. When we meet the Kindelfließ again, a drizzle begins. We put on our raincoats and continue walking along the Kindelfließ. After ten minutes we get too warm in our rainwear, the rain has stopped too, and we take off our raincoats again so that we don't have to put them on again for the whole day.
We'll soon reach the "beautiful" bridge over the river. This can be used in an emergency, but not very convenient. We continue along the edge of Glienicke, past the Schönfließer Passage shopping center. Opposite the memorial stone for Achaz von Veltheim there is a covered resting place that we use for our banana break. Back in the Bieselheide forest, a rather heavy drizzle hits us. Under the beeches and oaks, however, only about a third of the rain reaches us.
But when we reach the former border strip, the rain has stopped. Now it only goes through sand through the Bieselheide for a while. After a while we come to the Hubertussee. Here a strong land rain sets in, which lasts for a while. But we're halfway protected under the trees. We still get a little wet. After the ascent in the Gallberg Mountains, we set off for the final spurt. First we hope for a bakery in Bergfelde, but that turns out to be hopeless. Around 2.40 p.m. we reach Bergfelde S-Bahn station (S8) to take the next train back home (Berlin).The hike is not bad, especially the Kindelfließ or Bieselfließ are always worth seeing. However, the fact that there was only little sun to see today and it had even rained heavily for a short time was not so great. Well, we survived 🙄
