Today's destination was the Neuzelle monastery, more precisely the monastery brewery.Due to the location of the hotel, the first four kilometers were characterized by asphalt and gravel, but anyone who wants to go to the monastery has to suffer hardship.Then it got better: beautiful country lanes, some of which are flanked by orchards, and through pretty villages and mixed forest past the idyllic Gallenssee into the Dorchetal.After the Great Kantopp it became very dry in the Dorchetal, which stretched to the Dorchesee, which is more reminiscent of the Wadden Sea at low tide than of a lake.On to the Mühlenklause in Schwerzko, a rest was not possible here due to overcrowding.
So continue on the old hiking trail to the Mittelmühle (which is unfortunately no longer inviting). The path was actually an adventure from start to finish: fallen trees, barely recognizable paths, completely dilapidated bridges and swamp. Those who are not very sure-footed and daring should avoid this path, some places are a real balancing act!
It's a shame, because this part of the landscape has a lot to offer.The last part of the hike led out of the Dorchetal over the Hohe Wiesen to Neuzelle.After a stop at the Klosterklause (delicious boneless trout) and the purchase of three specialty beers in the monastery shop, the last section to the Neuzelle stop followed.
___________________________________________________Conclusion: Despite the asphalt section in the first part of the route, I would walk the same way again (apart from the supposed shortcut), I even liked the off-grid section to Mittelmühle. For those who don't care, the official hiking trail is an alternative that is well worth seeing.

Today's tour took me to the NSG Krayner Teiche / Lutzketal not far from Guben. Actually it should be a few kilometers more, but I gave myself too much time in the morning when visiting the plastineum in Guben, it's just too interesting, you can even watch how the specimens are made.I parked at the cemetery in Grano, there is also the monument of the Grano village church.
First I am south along the Wilschwitzer See, further along the Mooswiesengraben and the Krayner reservoir to the Krayner ponds, but I took a wrong turn shortly before the transition between the two.
At Lübbinchen following the road to the north, I came to Grano-Buderoser Mühlenfließ, whose pond cascade I followed to Krayne.
With the Talking Heads
then went north of the storage basin back to Grano. Incidentally, the off-grid section is now a popular and often used field or forest path.
____________________________________Conclusion:A very nice tour through this surprisingly diverse cultural landscape between Schlaubetal and Spreewald.
Again I was mostly alone with the landscape and the birds, that's how I like it.
There are no rest stops and resting places are rare.

Today's tour took me to the northern and western areas of my accommodation.First I walked along the north bank of the Tornowsee to the bridge over the swamp, then I followed the signs in the direction of Kunsterspring.At the zoo there is the excursion restaurant "Waldkater", here I used the opportunity for a hot tea.When I arrived at the Kunsterspring, I followed the nature trail to the Kochquelle, which lives up to its name.The following section actually only served the transfer to the north bank of the Kalksee near Binenwalde, so it had no highlights to offer, but the piece was by no means boring.
Originally I wanted to rest in Binenwalde too, but since the restaurant there is no longer supposed to be open, I saved myself the piece.I took a look at the nudist sunbathing lawn, when I'm around next year I'll definitely take the opportunity.The further path on the Kalksee is beautiful and predominantly characterized by old beech trees, there are also some resting places.Before I started my way home to the hotel along the Binenbach, I stopped by the beach on the south-east bank of the Kalksee, which is definitely a popular spot in summer.

Today I was drawn to the Stechlin. To do this, I parked the vehicle in Menz at the nature park house.After a short hello on the southeast side of the Roofensee, I went through the forest to the Großer Stechlinsee, at the beginning I chose paths away from the signposted hiking trails. If I had stayed with it, because the 'hiking trail' up to the Leibnitz Institute for Aquatic Ecology is mostly unattractive - at least that's how I felt. I didn't meet any other hikers or cyclists up to the Großer Stechlinsee.The path by the lake was much better, but nothing outstanding either, the few existing benches were all dilapidated. On the other hand, I was enthusiastic about the clear water.We went on to the former nuclear power plant, there I also took my first long break on the railway slope, in order to find the only 'real' resting place a little further at the beginning of the inlet canal, if you disregard the area between the Menzer town center and the south bank of the Roofensee, there are quite a few on the few meters.Further along the Nehmitzsee fishing water, my way led me mainly on lonely and beautiful forest paths to the Roofensee. There was more going on here (I met 8 strollers), and rightly so. The path along the lake is really very beautiful and varied.Quickly looked at the Menzer beach and 'climbed' the Wallberg, then back to the car.Conclusion:After yesterday's highlight, the tour was of course difficult today, but I was really negatively surprised by the first half. Nehmitz and Roofensee and the moor areas have torn everything out. On my next visit these will play the main role.
Maybe I will explore the Stechlinsee from Neuglobsow, maybe there are nicer stretches from there.

Today I used the cool but nice weather to explore the area in the south of the Boltenmühle.==========================
Directions:My way led me on the east bank of the Tornowsee to its southeastern end, past the campsite on unregistered paths to the wild and romantic beaver area at the Teufelssee.Further along the Rhin or the Zermützelsee over two Rhin bridges (after the first I used the rest area for a little refreshment) to Stendenitz.
You can safely save yourself the detour via a path that actually does not exist and is hardly accessible to the highlight "Goldenes Feld".Behind Stendenitz back into the forest to the well worth seeing fishing lakes "Die Kellen", there I also took a tea break. From here a nature trail leads to the Stendenitz campsite, where there is a forest museum (unfortunately closed at the moment), a beautiful playground, a pier for passenger ships and - not to forget - the restaurant "Waldschenke", where I spend the last day of this year's season for a took advantage of good food. The kitchen really surprised me.Freshly strengthened and a bit sluggish, my way led me along the Rottstiel river to the beach on the Rottstiel, unfortunately the air was too cold for swimming today.The last section led me on the south-west bank of the Tornowsee and then through the forest back to the accommodation.==========================
Conclusion:The tour gave me a lot of pleasure: the different types of forest with their wonderful smells, mushrooms (which unfortunately I was not allowed to take with me due to the lack of preparation options), various bodies of water, a little urban, good food and despite the weekend and the beginning of the holiday surprisingly few people (estimated all 2 km one).Recommendable!

When I arrived at the Hotel Boltenmühle, after unpacking, I took a little lap around the valley of the Binenbach to the Kalksee, before there was delicious pikeperch with chanterelles and a Rheinsberger Kronprinzen-Pils. Afterwards briefly in the brine bath, recharge your batteries for tomorrow.

During my drive to the next vacation home, I took the opportunity to pay a visit to Lindow, who was unknown to me.I parked the car at the cemetery, then I went on a flying visit to the Gudelacksee, later I had a little refreshment in the Seeperle '16.
Then a bit through the town, past the monastery and once around the Wutzsee.
To the east of the daycare center, a wide path (which is not shown on the map) leads through the forest back to the cemetery.It was a very relaxing round in the best autumn weather, but the narrow path down along the lake is only for people who can overcome a fallen tree and are sure-footed.
