Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) begins painting only at the age of 36. Previously, the American artist was a successful and recognized cartoonist. In 1906 he first traveled to Weimar and rented a studio there. For more than three decades Feininger went on foot or by bike to the Weimar countryside. There he filled out sketchbooks with innumerable churches, bridges and village centers, from which later many of his world-famous works of art were created."The villages, well over a hundred, in the area are magnificent! The architecture (you know how I go out of that!) I just right, so inspiring, sometimes so immensely monumental! There are churches in godforsaken nests, the the most mystical thing is what I know of so-called cultural people! "The 28 km long bike tour through the Weimarer Land invites you to follow in the footsteps of Feininger.The well signposted circuit is provided with attractive glass displays at the individual stations, most of which depict the Feininger painting of the respective village church with a direct view of the original in bright colors. This is a wonderful way to get to know your favorite motifs in the idyllic villages, because "Weimarer Land is Feininger Land"! The bike tour takes you from Weimar via Niedergrunstedt, Gelmeroda, Possendorf, Vollersroda and Mellingen back to Oberweimar.

Tour of Tine 30. October 2016 21 to 30 km, districts of Berlin, bicycle tours Berlin
"(...) First I drove north on the footpath between the railway line and the zoo.You can partly look into the enclosure here, past the gas lantern open-air museum to Hansaviertel.This residential area was planned in the context of Interbau 1957 and realized in the following years It is considered as an example of modern urban planning and architecture of that time.
On the other side of the railway line it was back to the 17th of June. Here every weekend the probably biggest antique market of Berlin takes place. I drove along the Salzufer and then through the residential areas towards Charlottenburg Palace.
(...) I drove around for one lap (we made another detour to Queen Louise's tomb) and then on to Schloßstraße. Some of the trees were already a bit bare and allowed a clear view of the partially great Wilhelminian style buildings on the right and left. Every now and then there are times one or the other building sin. But that's what makes the flair of Schloßstraße.
Gastro Tip: Café Art Break in the Scharf-Gerstenberg Collection, Schloßstr. 70, 14059 Berlin.
I cycled to the other end of the Schlossstrasse, the Sophie-Charlotte-Platz, and after a dangling ride on the unspeakable Kaiserdamm I saw Lietzensee. I crossed the dam and drove along the west side of Lietzensee. The houses around it and the autumn-colored trees were magical.
Once around the West Cross I drove to Halensee. I have never been here. Many excursionists were on the way. You can also drive a bit along the shore here.
Along the Trabener road to the S Grunewald. Here is the memorial track 17, which has long been on my To Do list. During the Second World War drove numerous deportation trains from here. On both sides of track 17, from which most of the deportation trains left Berlin, cast-iron plates were laid. In chronological order all journeys of Berlin with number of the deportees and the destination were documented. Many white roses were laid out here. The mood was rather depressing. The autumnal weather did the rest.
I took a break at the station bakery. Warm up did good.
Gastro Tip: Restaurant Floh, at the station Grunewald 4, 14193 Berlin (here you can also use the localities) (we mean: maybe better to bakery Steinecke, right next door).
On the Königsallee I drove on to Hubertussee. My absolute highlight of the bike ride (true!). This lake was so beautiful. There was no human soul around, I drove through autumn leaves and let the wind blow around my ears. It really does not take much to be happy.
I did a bit of track over Paulsborner Straße. Here and there were a few villas to see. But nothing that you have not already seen in Zehlendorf At the corner Wangenheimerstraße was a dreamlike old mansion.
So slowly it went back to civilization. About the Kurfürstendamm I drove a few dodges through the beautiful residential areas on the Wilmersdorfer Straße, the Karl-August-Platz (here is held on Saturday always a weekly market) and the Pestalozzistraße.
The Savignyplatz may not be missing on a bike tour through Charlottenburg. At the takeaway Hasenecke I've approved a Currywurst. Probably the only snack where you can also order a Piccolo champagne. Welcome to Charlottenburg
On the Kanstraße I drove back to the S-Bahn station Zoologischer Garten.

In fact, the tour was different than planned by the ADFC. The originally planned tour can be left later.
A unique experience with so many flashing bicycles and police escort non-stop to roar through Berlin. That was really worth it!
"When it gets dark and the Festival of Lights enchants the city, we invite you to a lights ride." Sparkles with us for more traffic safety. "We start at Potsdamer Platz on October 12 at 8 pm.
To light ride we clean ourselves out and decorate our bikes with everything that flashes and glitters. We turn on the soundbikes and set a cheerful sign for more traffic safety. Against the breathtaking backdrop of the Festival of Lights, we enjoy a unique tour of the city center. "

Informative walk along the Panke. With some small side trips we walked about 6 km along the Panke. The participants were given a lot of information about the most interesting points on the "Wikipedia map" = places we stop.
It was an event of the Wikipedia project "WikiWedding". The goal of this project is to create more Wikipedia articles related to this Berlin area or to improve and expand existing ones. The aim is also to scan old photos or other documents, upload and make them available to humanity. Also in other wiki projects is involved. Public relations is one of our important goals in this project. You want to get more people to work on the wiki projects. This event and also an information booth at the Luisenbad library during the same day event Panke Parcour are part of this public relations. It has been shown that many places (houses, streets, squares) have a Wikipedia article in this area where we took this walk.
"What is blooming there?" was another motto, so I was called flowering plants along the way and so many interesting things to tell.
So it was about getting to know a lot and not getting around quickly from A to B, so we took our time accordingly. We also went off the whole Panke Parcour route. Endpoint was the S-Bahn station Wollankstraße.
We were guided by Günter / WikiWedding,
Meeting point was: Bus stop "Am Nordhafen" of the M27 (direction Pankow) in the Fennstraße.
