      Today we were in OPR again. The goal was the Sielmann hill with the newly built observation tower. I had visited this one or the other time by bike, but today it should be on foot with Schlumpf. We followed the course of the Temnitz as far as possible, because unfortunately you cannot follow this small stream, which gives this region its name (Temnitzquell), directly. After we passed through Pfalzheim on our way and the Temnitz spring was not far away according to the map in Kommot, we decided to look for it and walked across the field to the beginning of the Temnitz and with it to the spring. Surprisingly, the Temnitz did not have any water there, although we had crossed the Temnitz a few hundred meters earlier and it was definitely a decent stream with water at this point. After this disappointment, we continued our way to the observation tower on the Sielmann hill and from there, due to an icy wind, only enjoyed a brief view of the very beautiful landscape of the Kyritz-Ruppiner-Heide. It is hard to imagine that this beautiful landscape was once, and should remain, a military training and bomb dropping area (the bombodrome). Many thanks to the citizens' initiative "Freie Heide", which prevented this through their work. After the frosty view, we went dead straight through various forests via Frankendorf and Katerbow on the path to Netzeband already described on the last excursion. Of course not without a little shopping and coffee in the Katerbow oil mill. When we arrived at the Gutspark in Netzeband, a small anchor beer was surprisingly waiting for us. Members of the community had tidied up and cleaned the manor park and at the end of their work they stood coronaconform together with an after-work beer and kindly invited us to our anchor beer, although we had not helped.

      So today is the second stage (at least for me) on the Via Imperii Way of St. James. This time it started from Teltow train station, with a very recommendable piece of cheesecake at "Drei Käse hoch". Due to the early time, there wasn't nearly as much rush here today as it was after the first stage, when it was coffee time in the afternoon. So strengthened, we set out on our way. The weather didn't play along as we had hoped. The sun never showed up for a moment and there was a pretty fresh wind, although I left home in bright sunshine. Fortunately we had left the summer clothes at home, so that we were well equipped with hats and gloves.
      Overall, the paths were easy to walk and the unexpected highlight was the Stahnsdorf forest cemetery. If you are around here, you should definitely plan at least an hour (much more) for a short tour.
      The rest of the way was then relatively varied through fields, woods and a few roads.
      In order to reach our train in Saarmund on time, we had to run the last two kilometers after about 25 km in order not to have to wait an hour for the next train.
      Overall, it was an entertaining tour with good transport connections.

      Very nice tour through the Ruppiner Land, the paths were very easy to hike and were also very varied. The highlight at the end of the tour was the oil mill in Katerbow

      Today I was able to persuade my wife to take a little walk off the beaten track.
      Therefore we walked through the beautiful winter landscape along the Kunster in OPR.
      For everyone who is near Neuruppin or Rheinsberg, the short stop to stretch your legs is highly recommended.

      But you are doing a year-end spurt in the great weather.
      Keep it up in 2021!

      Small shopping tour through the city to the market hall nine to Sironi to buy bread. Then picked up a friend on the way and shared our “insider tip” at Markthalle 20 (Havelland Express) in Tempelhof.
      Very nice shopping with two small beers in front of the market hall. 😝
      Then the big disappointment in the Kaufland Britz Süd. Horrible offer and ambience. 🤮
