      Short hike in and around Sancerre, the world-famous wine-growing region on the eastern Loire. The area is a dream, practically only vineyards, Sancerre sits like an egg on a hill and has a very beautiful old town.
      It only took me that long because, of course, I had a hearty dinner with accompanying wines in Sancerre myself :-).

      After a rather unpleasant hiking break caused by the intervertebral disc, I slowly try to work my way up to my old form. On the way south, therefore, stopped in Tonnerre to have a look at Chablis, Epineuil and the surrounding wine-growing regions.
      Very nice small town in decline and many abandoned houses, but still very lovable and above all. Located in a wonderful landscape, 90% of which is agricultural outside of viticulture.
      Just walked off at random with the Komoot card, made a nice little pub break in Dannemoine and finally visited the vineyards of the northernmost red wine region of Burgundy, Épineuils. Surprisingly small growing area, both Tonnerre and Epineuil. The former produces significantly cheaper Chardonnays than Chablis, which, however, are also somewhat wider and have less flair. Which doesn't make it worse! The roses from Épineuil were for legend and still are for me today, the reds are really more than passable!
      It was a great hike and I was able to examine the vineyard of my trunk red.
      If that's not a good start!
      Definitely worth a trip -

      Retrieved a long overdue classic today. I confess: I have never been to Liepnitzsee.
      Great little day trip from Berlin, beautiful lake in beautiful beech forest, only unfortunately well animated, which is not surprising given the attractiveness of the riverside path with its gastronomic sprinkling. I therefore recommend it during the week. I will do that next time and then I will take the ferry over to the large Werder to support the gastronomic facility there and to explore the Werder.
      Rounded off by a small dangling into the former residential area of the SED Politburo. Little left, now a hospital. It's a shame that not at least one house was preserved. Always these brainless purges.
      Very nice trip, I recommend it to everyone.
      Bring your bathing suit, the water in the lake is crystal clear!

      A round from Prieros in the Dubbrow and along different lakes, the latter lakes being the same, only with different names in different places.
      I hiked a tour from Frank, but had to row a couple of times because sections are closed, probably "because of Corona". If I had read through Frank's text again beforehand, I would have been wiser, but so there was a little detour and with luck I also managed to get through the holiday center on the wooden lake in the south, because the operator had kindly shown me the way out , although entry was forbidden at the moment and everything was completed.
      Nice tour in gray, cloudy, humid weather.
      At Frauensee everything was full of wild campers from Berlin, seems to be a popular place for it.
      The Dubbrow almost killed me with the lush green at the moment, the difference to the somewhat dreary Brandenburg pine monoculture is really impressive.

      My comment has vanished again.
      Conclusion: very nice, but not worth it to go there.

      The clouds are terrific. More beautiful than painted. :-)

      As often suggested by a little booklet "Around Berlin" from the series Hikeline Wanderführer, I went to Storkow (Mark), where I have never been before. Very nice little town with beautiful surroundings.
      The tour was quite varied, but very asphalt-heavy, which is why I would not recommend it in this form.
      From Storkow Stadt at the parking lot opposite the unfortunately closed castle, we went through the old town to the train station and then right onto the salt marshes, where you follow an appropriately signposted circular route to the colonial village of Philadelphia, which is definitely worth a visit. Then it goes diagonally down onto the main road to shortly after Groß Schauen, where you follow the bike path next to the road for a while, which is neither attractive nor pleasant. At the Köllnitz fishery, cross the federal road and go left towards the lake into the forest and then on the nature trail, which is very nice and informative, until you reach the lookout tower, which offers a wonderful view over the lake. After that, it is almost the same way back to Groß Schauen, where you meet the signposted salt path, which you can follow to the castle.
      Very nice corner, I will definitely go there a few more times with more time and better planning.

      From Trebbin, follow Fontaneweg 4 to Blankensee, then via the 66-Seen-Weg back to Trebbin.
      The Glau Mountains impressed me quite a bit, as did Blankensee ... You get the impression of a mountain range in the middle of Brandenburg.
