On this tour I was on my own today and went to see the lakes west of Rheinsberg.
From the Rheinsberg train station we headed south. After a few kilometers, I unfortunately had to give up my planned route because the bridge over the Rheinsberger Rhin on the Waldsteig no longer exists. I opted for the progressive variant over the bridge at the forester's house, even though I had to walk about 600 meters along the main road.
In the beginning, the typical Brandenburg pine forests predominated, then mostly beech forests, until it became more varied. The lakes and the paths along them were, as always, my favorite sections, even if you e.g. hardly gets to the Rheinsberger See. I particularly liked the bathing spot on the Linowsee lake, luckily I had a pair of swimming trunks with me. Incidentally, the water was more pleasant than I would have expected this time of year!
The last section, on the south bank of Lake Grienerick and through the city park along Rheinsberg Castle, was, as expected, very well attended, but by no means crowded.
A delicious ice cream from the bistro directly at the train station provided the necessary cool down before the trip home.The bottom line was that this tour really excited me! Due to the good accessibility (from Berlin) and the beautiful lakes, I will certainly go on one or two hikes from or to Rheinsberg.LG Jens

On Ascension Day I was again on the road with the Elbe Sandstone. This time we went to the Schlaubetal, from Berlin via Frankfurt / Oder to Mixdorf.
From the train station we walked a bit through the village, then through the forest west of the Schlaube to the bridge at Forthaus Siehdichum.
After a hearty stop on Father's Day with sausages from the charcoal grill and delicious Wernesgrüner Pils, we continued along the Mühlenwanderweg via Kupferhammer and Ragower Mühle to the Müllrose train station.
Completely unexpectedly, we discovered the highly recommended restaurant "Am Katharinensee" shortly before the day's goal. There you can easily spend the time until the next departure, ice cream and cream seem to be homemade and there is also the famous Schlaubetal plate.
I will definitely come back!

Today a long-planned tour that also took me through my old home Glienicke / Nordbahn.
I did not know the western part of the Tegel River until now, I was very impressed with it. I hadn't expected so much nature there.
The former border area has also developed into a precious natural landscape.
I was surprised by the water level of Lake Kindelsee; on my last visit there (1988) it was close to drying out.
Unfortunately, I have no pictures of large parts of the way, but rest assured: it's worth it!
