Father's Day 🍻, Ascension Day 😇, Thursday 🌩, Holidays 🎉 and… Bike Day! 🚲 It went back to Petkus, but this time the region east of Dahme / Mark was explored in more detail. The first 28 kilometers were on the RK 8 of the Fläming Skate. First you rolled downhill from Petkus through the forest to Wahlsdorf before heading east.
The next few kilometers were then, parallel to the county road, on a paved and separate bike path across wide fields. You crossed the towns of Leipe and Buckow. The cycle path then ran far from any road through the forest to Prensdorf. In Prensdorf you also met the "Dahmeradweg" at the village church. Now you drove alternately through forests and fields to Wildau-Wentdorf. Shortly after the village you left the RK 8 of the Fläming-Skate and turned right, towards the south, onto a county road. On this road, which is signposted for cyclists as a "crane tour", we went up and down via Pitschen-Pickel to Falkenberg. From Falkenberg you followed a feeder route of the Fläming-Skate via Kemlitz, Sieb and Rosenthal to Dahme / Mark. You almost always drove on a well-paved bicycle road.
For friends of culture, a small tour on the inner city circuit is worthwhile in Dahme (Mark), which runs around the historic city wall and u. a. passed the old city park and the well-preserved bird tower.
Tip: If you want, you can make a detour from Dahme (Mark) to the nearby Dahmequelle (approx. 7.5 km) near Schöna-Kolpien.
Shortly after the small town you followed the RK 7 of the Fläming skate and first drove on a rather hilly route via Ihlow and Niendorf to Hohenseefeld, before continuing on the route from last Saturday via Niebendorf-Heinsdorf and Wahlsdorf back to Petkus.
So far the tour is highly recommended. 👍 The sections of the route on the Fläming skate are always paved bicycle roads. Between Wildau-Wentdorf and Falkenberg you drive on a low-traffic road and in Kemlitz for 100 meters short federal road. These are the only sections of the roadStart and finish point: Petkus manor houseAlternatively:

In windy weather, a bike tour on the Fläming skate was planned today.
From the start and finish point in Petkus, we first went through the forest to Wahlsdorf on the RK 1,5 & 7 of the Fläming skate. Then you drove a circuit on RK 6. On the first few kilometers south-west to Welsickendorf you drove through a wide field landscape and passed idyllic villages every few kilometers. The highlight on this section was the mountain village of Schlenzer at 143 meters above sea level. From Welsickendorf you drove the next eight kilometers in a row through the forest for a change, which is a wonderful way to cool off in midsummer. A large number of gliders and motor planes can be seen here at the weekend. After the forest, you crossed the village of Wiepersdorf, which is known for its castle, and drove on to Hohenseefeld, two kilometers away.
In Hohenseefeld, a visit to "Birnbaums Eiscafé" is recommended. There is very delicious and homemade (soft) ice cream 🍦 and a very cozy ice garden.
From Hohenseefeld it only went north and you drove across wide fields again. Before you returned to Wahlsdorf, you passed the town of Niebendorf-Heinsdorf. From Wahlsdorf the last kilometers were identical to the first kilometers of this bike tour.
Overall, the circuit is highly recommended as it is always well signposted and developed. In addition, you drive 95% on pure bicycle roads. 👌Start and finish point: Petkus manor houseAlternatively:

In warm and dry weather, the planned tour from last week could still be completed in full. 😅 This time the starting and finishing point was the Zossen train station (Groß Köris is also recommended). You left the city of Zossen first to the east and after a short stretch of road you went on a bike path to Schöneiche. Then you drove on several low-traffic district roads from Schöneiche via Kalinchen to Motzen. In Motzen, you turned right from the main street into "Köriser Straße" and now drove for almost two kilometers on a small slab path before you reached the paved courtyard bike path at the level crossing, which you followed to Groß Köris. In Groß Köris we went westwards after the bascule bridge over the “Seebadstraße” and then over the train station and under the motorway to the town exit. Then you drove on a beautiful foot and bike path parallel to the street via Schwerin to the city of Teupitz. From time to time you had a wonderful view of the neighboring Teupitzer lake. When you arrived in the small town of Teupitz, you first crossed the historic center before continuing on the lightly traveled country road to Egsdorf. This passage was characterized by many small elevations and curves. Once in Egsdorf, turn left at the first intersection and follow the road to Zesch am See. For the next five kilometers, the surface, which consisted of half asphalt and half of gravel, was a bit bumpy, but this was manageable. Only racing cyclists shouldn't recommend this piece. In terms of landscape, however, this section was very beautiful.
From Zesch am See there was a paved circular road again, which you followed via Lindenbrück and Funkenmühle to Wünsdorf. From Wünsdorf we continued as planned on the left on the B96, which was left a few hundred meters later at Neuhof train station (b Zossen).
Now you had to cross the tracks via a jumble of ramps and then drove into the center of Neuhof. For the next ten kilometers, the only way was straight on a circular road to Sperenberg. You encountered mysterious ruins in the forest. 🤔
From Sperenberg you drove the last kilometers on the Berlin-Leipzig cycle path via Rehhagen and Mellensee to Zossen. The most beautiful part of the tour was also the last. Between Mellensee and Zossen you drove beautifully through the nature reserve and parallel to the Notte Canal.Overall, the tour is highly recommended. 👍 Between Motzen and the Hofjagdradweg one could perhaps use the paved “Bestenseer Straße” in the north to bypass the Plattenweg.Directions:

Today it should go by bicycle from Groß Köris in Schenkenländchen to Sperenberg and Zossen. However, the tour was shortened due to the weather via Wünsdorf-Waldstadt. More on that later.
From the train station in Groß Köris, the first thing to do in the sunshine was on a beautiful footpath and bike path parallel to the street via Schwerin to the city of Teupitz. From time to time you had a wonderful view of the neighboring Teupitzer lake. When you arrived in the small town, you first crossed the historic center before you went on the low-traffic country road to Egsdorf. This passage was characterized by many small elevations and curves. Once in Egsdorf, turn left at the first intersection and follow the road to Zesch am See. For the next five kilometers, the surface, which consisted of half asphalt and half of gravel, was a bit bumpy, but this was manageable. Only racing cyclists should not recommend this piece. In terms of landscape, however, this section was very beautiful.
From Zesch am See there was again a paved circular road, which you followed via Lindenbrück and Funkenmühle to Wünsdorf. From Wünsdorf, we did not go west to Sperenberg as planned, but northwards to the center of Wünsdorf-Waldstadt. The reason for this was the heavy rain starting from Egsdorf, which from time to time turned into a hail shower. 🌧️ Completely drenched, an acronym has now been chosen. So it went to the center of Wünsdorf-Waldstadt and to the former military site. Then you followed the fairly quiet road back to Epsdorf via Töpchin. The last kilometers were then identical to the first kilometers. Shortly before the goal the cloud cover broke again and it was sunny again. 🙄🌄 It doesn't matter. The tour was still very beautiful in terms of landscape - and there will certainly be another chance to ski the whole lap.

Today we went on a hike through Rangsdorf and the neighboring nature reserve south of the village. The starting and finishing point was the Rangsdorf train station, which can be reached by train in a good half to three quarters of an hour from Berlin. From the train station, we first went west on the Seebadallee to the old village center with the pretty village church, before walking right past the sports field to Rangsdorfer See. Now it went south on the lake promenade. A small channel was crossed every few hundred meters. After the fourth canal, the road ended and you walked through a rustic forest that was not used for forestry and was therefore rich in interesting plant and bird species. 🌲🐦 Now and then you came directly to the shore of Lake Rangsdorf, which was previously not possible due to the many properties.
After a good kilometer you arrived at the end of the forest and it went eastwards parallel to the Zülow Canal. Around you were wide meadows that have been used as compensation areas for BER Airport for a few years. The farmers get money for the fact that the meadows are not cultivated and, for example, ground-breeding birds can nest here. Migratory birds such as cranes and geese can also be found, but these were only seen and heard from afar. After a kilometer and a half, the bank was changed and then went north on a dirt road. You crossed small rapeseed fields and crossed the nearby railway line. After the historic level crossing, turn left onto a dirt path that ran between the railway line and the Kiessee. A short time later you came back to Rangsdorf and you went back to the train station via Jasminweg, Lerchenweg, Spechtweg, and Pramsdorfer Weg.
All in all, the tour is very nice, varied and above all rich in wild nature. I can only recommend. 👍 If you feel like it, you can also run around the Rangsdorfer See. The round would be almost 18 km long.Directions:

When the weather was fine, we went on a hike around the Great Wünsdorfer See. From the Wünsdorf-Waldstadt train station, you first walked along a dirt track
Chausseestraße, which you followed to Wünsdorfer Seestraße. Then it went south on this. While there were many pretty plots on the left, the wild shore of the Great Wünsdorf Lake was on the right. After almost two kilometers you arrived in Neuhof. There you turned right at the first street and walked criss-cross through the sandy streets to a swimming area and a nearby forest. In the next section you saw little of the lake, but it was very nice through the quiet forest. Now you came back to Wünsdorf on the eastern bank and followed the Mühlenweg onto a small promontory on which many gazebos and weekend houses with many magnificent gardens were to be admired. Shortly before you came back to the street to the train station, you passed the old village center with the village church of Wünsdorf.Overall, the tour was very nice and varied. You can also z. B. extend over the northern Little Wünsdorfer See.Directions:

Today was a small historical hike through the Düppeler forest.
The Düppeler Forest is a normal forest in itself, which extends from the Berlin Wannsee to Stahnsdorf and Kleinmachnow. In the part visited today, however, it was intersected by two railway lines, a motorway and the Berlin Wall. The two-track main line (Berlin-Potsdam) was dismantled in 1945 due to reparations, the cemetery line (Berlin Wannsee - Friedhof Stahnsdorf) was cut up by the wall, and the Berlin wall is known to have fallen in 1989. The motorway was relocated during the GDR era because it was too unfavorable on the border strip. Everything is history, but there are still a few remains.From the Wannsee S-Bahn station, we first went past the forester's house and the shooting range towards Stahnsdorf. Then it went on the former highway route towards the southwest. The highway is no longer visible, but the route is overgrown with bushes and not trees, which is why you can guess it. After a while you passed the former cemetery railway, of which there are still tracks. The Protestant church applied for the cemetery railway at the beginning of the 20th century, as the S-Bahn was to take visitors to the new cemetery in Stahnsdorf. At that time there was not much space for cemeteries in the city center, which is why a new large cemetery was created at the gates of the city. There are many well-known artists, politicians, resistance fighters, actors, writers and musicians in the cemetery, such as Manfred Krug, Otto Graf Lambsdorff or Heinrich Zille. More information: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%BCdwestkirchhof_Stahnsdorf.
About 500 meters from the remnants of the track, you came to the bridge on which the main line ran over the motorway until 1945. All passenger trains from Berlin via Potsdam to Magdeburg crossed them, while cars and trucks whizzed past below. It's quiet here today. A few birds can be heard and now and then there are sprayers who (legally) spray the bridge. A wonderful and interesting place. The wall ran just a few meters away for almost three decades.
From the bridge we went back to the Wannsee S-Bahn station on neighboring hiking trails.So far I can highly recommend the tour

At least a small walk was announced on Easter Sunday today. It went through Potsdam's city center to Sanssouci Palace and then crisscrossed through the associated park. Intermediate stops were the pretty China House and the New Palace in the western part of the park. At first the streets were deserted, but later they slowly filled up. Especially the few ice cream parlors that are at least allowed to open were like magnets.Overall, the tour was very nice. At this point I wish everyone a happy Easter! 😉🐣🐇
