Without BJN's kick-off, I probably wouldn't have gone to Falkenberg (Mark), because we have to change trains and SEV around 2:20 h. Bea takes even more time.But we like the Oderbruch very much and the hiking trail (optional / partial tower, Fontane or Oderlandweg) on the demolition edge is really nice. From Falkenberg via Bad Freienwalde to Altranft it goes up and down through green deciduous forests. It is mostly beech forest. But oak, maple and birch also grow here. There are also very few pine groups. We are almost alone and enjoy the magical way. The young green in different shades thrills us all the way.On the other hand. It is dry. A lot. In many cases the moss is brown and burnt on the ground and in some places the young tree seedlings have died of thirst.Since we do not want to acquire a tower diploma today, we leave the Bismarck Tower on the left. We'll find out later that we're a week early anyway: the towers won't open for the season until next week. At Teufelssee I lose the GPS and have to start the tour again. Bea will provide her track for me to upload later.We continue to the Owl Tower and past the ski jump from Bad Freienwalde to the chapel and then to the lookout tower on the Galgenberg.At Altranft we leave the demolition edge and run parallel to the rails through a completely different landscape at the edge of the break. It is flat and we come through dry meadows as well as a terrain, the structure of which indicates military use. Even a section that is reminiscent of heathland and of course agricultural areas.A very nice hike and a very nice day.

Because we won't be leaving until late, today it should be part of the Inner Parkring (Grüner Hauptweg 18). We start at the S-Bahn station Warschauer Straße ... and make little progress. The city has changed so much along the way in recent years that we are more astonished than hiked.With tired legs and lots of new and surprising impressions, we end the hike at Rathaus Schöneberg underground station.

I have an appointment with tr for a bike tour. We meet at the Lichtenberg S-Bahn station. It's a little cool, because the ice saints still have us under control, but very sunny.First it goes along the Wuhle to Köpenick, then to the Müggelsee and over Wilhelmshagen and the Berlin city forest to Erpe. I've never been here and I find it magical.We continue via Ravenstein to a small hidden lake and then continue via Waldesruh back to the Lichtenberg S-Bahn station.I enjoy just letting myself be taken with me. I don't know most of the route and I like to be surprised every time I turn off. And I find tr's view of fauna and flora really exciting and informative.I make a spontaneous decision to continue to Charlottenburg via the large main roads.Overall a very nice day.Here is the recording of tr with great photos: komoot.de/tour/183970684

Dear hiking friends,this time I would like to encourage you to a very special hiking event that I worked out together with the komoot community management.In view of the restrictive external circumstances, the aim is to strengthen the cohesion of the community and to set up a joint virtual tour. The principle is as follows: At the start I hike a tour from A to B, one of you then hikes from B to C, the next person from C to D etc.I hope that we can manage a tour as a 'virtual hiking group' every day until the end of May. This event should be about participants from the greater Berlin / Potsdam area, of course you can also travel to contribute a stage.Which route you hike and how long it is entirely up to you, you just have to take your own starting point from the end point of your respective predecessor. It is definitely not a question of 'higher-faster-further' and measuring your strength, but that each participant is actually part of the matter and makes his or her individual contribution to the overall result.-----The following rules apply:
- for sure this is a 'fun event', please go about it with the necessary seriousness and think in terms of community
- Your stage should be at least three kilometers long, there is no limit to the top, but please do not overdo it
- please only contribute A-to-B stages, no round trips
- The destination of your stage should be easily accessible by local or regional public transport. This helps you as well as the person who has to continue at the point.
- After completing your stage, please put it online at komoot as soon as possible, so that the following person has enough time to plan your own stage. You can then edit images, etc.To allocate the 'slots', i.e. the daily allocations:
I set up a doodle at: doodle.com/poll/rpv6ycvbue9xt7zb
If you are interested in this campaign, please register there. You only enter the name under which you are active at komoot, I do not need any further data. Pick your desired day and send the form. The following applies: first come, first served and free choice. Please only grab a free 'slot' if you actually intend to hike your stage that day.I will start on May 15th. starting at the komoot HQ in Potsdam, you can then from 16.05. until May 31 continue. If there is a lot of demand and if all days are quickly allocated without gaps, we may extend the campaign.Should you still not be able to meet your specified date, send me an email to email@example.com so that I can release the day again for other interested parties. If necessary, I will step in in the event of short-term failures so that the chain does not break.-----I am looking forward to your feedback and hope that numerous participants will be there. I sent an invitation to this virtual event to some of you who I follow and who are hiking in the Berlin area. All others who read here are of course also invited. As always, feel free to share your opinion and ask questions here in the comments or contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org-----

Today we walk the still missing section of the Green Main Route 1 (Spreeweg / Berliner Urstromtal). From the Dovebrücke in Charlottenburg it goes through Tiergarten, Mitte, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain to the Elsenbrücke.We pass many of the historical and tourist places that every visitor to Berlin should have seen. I like the track and we have run many parts of it a lot.Today, however, we are appalled by the littering of the Spreeweg. The entire Spreeweg and all the beautiful places where you can linger and soak up the atmosphere are littered with ToGo packaging waste. And they weren't the others - they weren't holiday tourists or visitors. There is no excuse. WHAT WE WERE, THE BERLINER! I am shocked.

Another hike on the Green Main Route 1. Today we start at the western end, in Albrechtshof, and walk to the Dove Bridge in Charlottenburg before we turn towards Leibnitzstrasse.A nice hike. Except for the Charlottenburg Palace Gardens, hardly any people are out and about. The scent of the lilac blooming everywhere is bewitching and it is very, very green.

We follow Grüner Hauptweg 1 (Spreeweg / Berliner Urstromtal) from Erkner station to Köpenick.Sometimes the paths are black in front of people. No wonder, the weather is wonderful and at some point you have to get out. Until behind Hessenwinkel, hikers and cyclists still have to share their way. With a width of three meters in some cases, that's not so easy.But later the paths for hikers and cyclists split. However, it remains very busy throughout the route. Everywhere people have settled down, enjoy the sun, read a book or have a picnic with the family. Very peaceful and nice.
