Round through the NSG Gränert and its species-rich fauna and flora, which extends from the south bank of the Möser See / Breitling See to the south to Magdeburger Heerstraße on 467 hectares.
It consists of wet biotopes, forest meadows, alluvial forests, areas of dead wood, moors, the thief's ground with mixed forest, the lazy lake cut up by the railway line. The northern part of the Buckau brook also belongs to the NSG.
We take part of the further course of the Buckau to Neue Mühle / Angelteiche in the hike.
Both sections are connected by a wide strip of desolate pine forest.
Our tour begins in the village center of Kirchmöser and follows the well-frequented, asphalted bike and footpath between the railway embankment and Möserschem See to Camping Malges for about 5 km. Unfortunately there is no alternative, as level crossings are rare. The planned way back directly on the other side of the embankment turned out to be a fresh fire protection strip. Our alternative leads cross-country, along a protection, crosses the Magdeburg Heerstraße and leads to a former Rieselfeld- still company site, but with a dog run ??!
Back on MD-Heerstraße, the path runs from the bridge at various intervals along the winding Buckau (Slavic: Buchenbach). We meet the Neue Mühle, a (currently closed) excursion restaurant, a weir and an adjoining fishing paradise.
Along the long fishing ponds and floodplains, it goes through orderly pine forests into the wonderful mixed forest of the Gränert. Here we wander through a wide variety of biotopes at the silver source and the thieves' ground, dead wood areas, broken areas, past individual special biotope trees, also next to the railway line! It goes on winding paths to the Lazy Lake. Wonderful, bizarre atmosphere there, just enjoy.
We get back to Kirchmöser through mixed and pine forests. We treat ourselves to the beautiful panoramic view from the Mühlberg observation tower / former optical telegraph station No. 8.
A nice, entertaining and overall relaxed tour in an area unknown to us.
There is obviously also a 7 km circular route in Gränert, marked with blue signs, but the route is not known.

In very changeable to slightly threatening weather a very attractive excursion to Templin in the Uckermark.
Our goal is the city lake to be circumnavigated and the old town within the complete city wall.
We start on the east bank of the Stadtsee / Templiner See and follow the path near the shore to the Fährkrug restaurant. An intended ascent to the embankment is not worthwhile, as the adjoining former Bf Fährkrug is privately owned and has to be circumnavigated on the street.
We follow the bicycle road, before the Gleuenbrücke we turn to the Gleuensee and follow the very beautiful east bank path up to a high ascent in front of the Martiniquelle for a way back to the Gleuenbrücke. Here some paths are still missing in OSM, but they are available on site. Unfortunately some of it was severely broken up by harvester
From Gleuenbrücke we are back at the city lake and walk along the western shore path.
We pass beautifully designed and varied “front gardens” on a hillside. The private garden railway system is great, very lovingly and technically complex and can be put into operation by visitors from the garden fence!
The pioneer bridge leads to the city wall with the old town. This can be completely circled in one way inside / outside. We limit ourselves to a few sections of the old town market, the half-timbered houses in Rühlstrasse.
Our highlight of the day was the former Minol petrol station next to Prenzlauer Tor - at the end of 2020 it was added to the list of monuments of the state of Brandenburg and just recently marked.

Today a very relaxed and surprisingly sunny tour around the fantastic Liepnitzsee. (in advance: no tip for the WE ...) Sometimes at sea level, sometimes as a high path, the island of Großer Werder draped in the middle, beech forests, swaying reeds - a piece of cake from Brandenburg!
After a picnic stop on the high path, it goes over to the forest settlement.
Once reserved for the top functionaries of the GDR (spoiled and guarded by 650 people!), The settlement is now used in a second life by various clinics and the bizarre history is explained and thus preserved.
Many residential buildings in the settlement, long sections of the security walls, some bunkers (now bat quarters) are still there (listed as a historical monument in 2017!), But only a part is accessible due to the use of the clinic, part has been abandoned.
So be careful in the forest and in the bunker areas!
The historical essentials can be found on the local display boards, the rest is on the net.

Round in the Unterspreewald from Schlepzig Fire Brigade Museum south to Hartmannsdorfer Wehr, on farm roads along the managed, partially drained pond landscape. You walk on a dam between the main Spree and the fish ponds, the Gasthaus Petkamsberg is halfway next to it.
After crossing the Hartmannsdorfer Wehr (a Spree weir), you pass the ditches, marshland and meadows in a much more varied and friendly way, on dykes and forest paths / farm roads to the north. We mainly walk on the beautiful meandering summer dam with the best view of a lush Spreewald landscape.
In the area of the connecting road Krausnick-Schlepzig, the hiking trail is then signposted on the road, the forest is actually closed.
Unfortunately, there is no reference to restricted zones / and restricted times in the hiking recommendations at Schlepzig.de, which refers to a Komoot collection on hikes around Schlepzig - including this hike. Official hiking trails, circular trails, nature trails, farm roads, closed forest trails mix here - somewhat opaque when changing between hiking trails.
The subsequent path (Archedamm) from weir Arche III on the Schiwastrom to the Wussegk lookout tower is great.
The way back is through Schlepzig, a town that is sleepy on Mondays, only the baker is a permanent bank as always.

Trip to the photo exhibition "Berlin 1945-2000: A Photographic Subject" with beautiful, often unknown b / w everyday photos and an amusing film in the Reinbeckhallen, on the site of the former TRO (transformer factory).
The way back was via the pretty and well-tended forest cemetery Oberschöneweide in the Wuhlheide with graves from Rathenau, Deul and others, later past the few scattered but loyal Union ‘fans on a home game day🥺. An afternoon like April weather!

A varied and beautifully mountainous tour through the Krausnicker Bergspreewald.
On well-signposted bike and hiking trails, you usually go on the old connecting roads (on gravel) through pine forests and remnants of the ancient mixed oak forests over the Ice Age moraine landscape with several glacial lakes, along the heather lakes. Great panoramic and far-reaching views from the Wehla-Berg observation tower (144m) and a good place to take a break. Our detour to the Luchsee was not worthwhile because of the complete "conversion" with pines on the dry moorland.
Due to the many starting options and length variations, the paths were well attended during Easter.

Round along the full gypsum bridge and clay pits between Sperenberg and Klausdorf. Past the remains and ruins of brick production in Klausdorf, which has been going on from 1560 to the present day. A nice up and down on the slopes, a touch of the chalk cliff feeling in Brandenburg. The boards on the geo-soil path provide information about the landscape and history.
A tour often under power (trassen) and on differently silted up waters.

Tour from Finow, on the towpath along the Finow Canal past the industrial monuments and their industrial history, bridges, locks to the architecturally colorful center of Eberswalde.
Start: bus stop Erich- Steinfurth- Str./ Finow (bus 864 leaves from HBf Eberswalde), destination: HBf Eberswalde (RB 24)
On the way there are buildings that are well worth seeing, such as the brass works settlement, Finower water tower, the copper houses, power station Heegermühle, opposite the Wolfswinkel paper factory, Borsighalle, iron cleavage, wire hammer lock, old post office, Adler pharmacy, fairytale villa. A mix between abandoned / there is hope / / already tackled / more beautiful than the original. The boards on site are very informative.
The underground on the canal changes regularly from asphalt to firm forest floor and makes the tour a walk. Some sections are also a bike path.
Today we had an early Easter Sunday feeling on a free Monday. Supi.

Round from Bf Oderin along the Dahme and Dahmewiesen to Märkisch Buchholz. A very manageable place, with a remarkable, powerful weir on the Dahme flood canal. At the same time a good starting point for longer tours in the Spreewald.
The path through the forest to the Oderiner See is partly explored on site, as OSM sources, among other things, show too few paths (only all have the Dahme cycle path) - but there are alternatives in the forest.
The path on the Oderiner See meanders beautifully along the flat bank; many fishing spots for cardholders, an official swimming area.
Today a high seat jumped into almost every photo, but there were significantly more.
