      A new, 6-stage project was tackled today by Regina, Floh, Jörg and me: the castle hiking trail in "Germany's smallest low mountain range", as the Fläming is also called with a wink. Incidentally, the book> Fernwanderwege Deutschland <divides this 150-kilometer circular route into 8 stages. So if you want to be even more relaxed than us ...
      We started in Bad Belzig at the train station and immediately left the city in a southerly direction. We keep Eisenberg Castle, located in Bad Belzig, as the icing on the cake of the entire tour for the last stage.
      Immediately after leaving town we were in the middle of the fields. Poppies, cornflowers and the lush green of the not yet ripe grain dominated the picture and the cameras clicked 😀. Jörg and Floh also determined various other plants and flowers, but as soon as they announced the results of their research, they were already out of my second ear. If only they had numbers ... But luckily you can look at their tour descriptions. In any case, the variety of colors and shapes was wonderful.
      Again and again we were offered great views. Now and then we also had forest passages through different forests. Watercourses, lakes, canals or ponds, as you can actually find them almost everywhere else in the state of Brandenburg, are not here. We just crossed the tarpaulin, a small river.
      The marking of the path was exemplary. You actually didn't need a hiking app or map. There were enough rest areas, as is usual with quality trails. We found the Gasthof Lehmann in Garrey to be a highlight. Great ambience in the inn, good homemade cakes and pies as well as various warm dishes left nothing to be desired.
      It can go on like this and I'm already looking forward to the next stage.Regina's tour description: komoot.de/tour/390081670the tour description from Floh: komoot.de/tour/391234467Jörg's tour description: komoot.de/tour/390434140

      That was a wonderful Sunday excursion with Kathrin and Thomas in the best weather. It wasn't a spectacular hike, but everything that makes a route beautiful was included: forest paths, little asphalt, lakes, canals, bridges, a little village, a little town, New Venice, a place to stop for refreshments and even "mountains" (Püttberge) . In addition there were the many beautiful conversations about God and the world.
      A recommended round.

      Juhu, mal wieder eine Tour zusammen mit meinem Freund Titus. Wir nahmen uns einen Streifzug durch Mitte vor. Grundlage dieser Tour war das Buch "Berlin - Abseits der Pfade" von Mirko Moritz Kraetsch.
      Unser gesundes, selbstbewusstes Halbwissen gaukelte uns vor, dass wir es locker zu einem Vollwissen zusammenpacken könnten. Blicke ins Buch von Kraetsch, aber auch Internet-Recherchen während und nach der Wanderung zeigten uns, dass wir häufig falsch oder maximal fast richtig lagen. Aber es gab auch Stolz machende Volltreffer 😂.
      Unsere Runde startete am U-Bahnhof Reinickendorfer Straße. Hier wird die Gegend vom ehem. Schering-Werk, jetzt Bayer, bestimmt. Für alteingesessene Westberliner wird das aber immer Schering bleiben. Jeder war damals beeindruckt, als der silbrig glänzende, futuristisch anmutende Hochbau entstand. Angefangen hatte Ernst Schering übrigens mit einer Apotheke in der Chausseestraße!!Wir liefen nun Richtung Westen zum Nordhafen mit dem ihn umgebenden Park, dem Zufluss der Nordpanke und dem Gebäude-Koloss vom ehemaligen 'Umspannwerk Scharnhorst'. Die sogenannte Lichtwarte auf dem Gebäudedach wurde damals als Ausguck zur Überwachung der Straßenbeleuchtung in der näheren Umgebung benutzt, die man von dort oben gegebenenfalls auch von Hand steuern konnte.Nächste Stopps waren am neuen Golda-Meir-Steg über den Berlin-Spandauer Schifffahrtskanal, am Litfin-Mauermuseum und am Invalidenfriedhof. Letztgenannter erreichte ein gewisses Renommee, weil Lenné und Schinkel an Park- und Gräbergestaltung mitwirkten.Jetzt ging es ein wenig entlang der Südpanke und am Riesenkomplex des Bundesnachrichtendienstes vorbei, welcher vormals das Gelände des Walter-Ulbricht-Stadions, später umbenannt in Stadion der Weltjugend, war. Nun wurde es wieder städtischer. Wir passierten den Invalidenpark mit der sinkenden Mauer, diverse Gebäude verschiedener Epochen in der Invalidenstraße, der Chausseestraße und der Hannoverschen Straße, bevor wir auf das Oranienburger Tor trafen, also eigentlich nur auf den Namen, denn das ehemalige Stadttor in der Akzisemauer gibt es nicht mehr. Immerhin kann man zwischen all den Graffiti ein stilisiertes Tor auf einer Brandmauer eines Hauses erkennen. Am ehemaligen Oranienburger Tor befand sich auch der Haupteingang zu Borsigs Maschinenbau-Anstalt. Hier begann das "Feuerland", wie das riesige Gebiet der metallverarbeitenden Industrie genannt wurde. Viele Straßennamen in dieser Gegend erinnern noch an die damaligen "Industriekapitäne".Auf unserem folgenden Weg zum Nordbahnhof nehmen wir noch den Elisabethkirchplatz und den Pappelplatz mit. Ich muss gestehen, wir haben gar nicht danach gesehen, ob auf dem zweitgenannten Platz überhaupt Pappeln stehen. Ziel unseres Interesses war der Geldzählerbrunnen, auch Erbsenzählerbrunnen genannt. Einen dritten Namen gibt es auch noch: der Masturbator-Brunnen. Aus einem bestimmten Blickwinkel weicht das Geldzählen einer anderer Beschäftigung 🤪.Heute ist der Nordbahnhof nur noch eine S-Bahnstation. Im zweiten Weltkrieg wurde das riesige Areal des damaligen Stettiner Bahnhofs und des Nordbahnhof- Güterbahnhofs fast komplett zerstört und dann nicht wieder aufgebaut. Nur noch eine Wartehalle ist als Andenken stehen geblieben.Wir nahmen jetzt die ehemalige Bahntrasse vom Nordbahnhof in Richtung Volkspark Humboldthain unter die Füße. Eine einzelne Schiene ist noch auf dem Parkweg eingelassen als Erinnerung an den einst regen Bahnverkehr. Am Ende des Parks am Nordbahnhof treffen wir auf die Liesenbrücke, ein großartiges Industriedenkmal bestehend aus zwei stillgelegten Eisenbahnbrücken aus dem späten 19. Jahrhundert. Es ist geplant, auf den verbliebenden Brückengleisen eine Verbindung für Radfahrer und Fußgänger direkt zum Park am Humboldthain zu schaffen.Wir biegen jetzt rechts in die Scheringstraße ab und befinden uns nach kurzem Weg mitten auf dem Gelände des AEG Apparatebau Werkes. Für technisch begeisterte Jungs wie uns natürlich ein Eldorado. Man riecht hier förmlich die Industriegeschichte und kann sich gut vorstellen, was hier mal für ein Gewusel war. Hier fuhr auch die erste U-Bahn Zentraleuropas, die ab 1895 Material zwischen den verschiedenen Werken transportierte. Ebenfalls ein Industrierelikt ist das ehemalige riesengroße Siemens-Nixdorf-Gebäude auf dem gleichen Gelände, dass natürlich viel jünger datiert. Wir verlassen das Gelände in die Voltastraße, wo man normalerweise noch das wunderschöne AEG-Beamtentor bewundern könnte. Im Moment ist es aber für eine Restaurierung komplett eingehülltWenn man schon am Humboldthain ist, gehört es sich, zum Flakbunker hochzustiefeln. Es war mal geplant, ihn zu sprengen. Man hat diese Idee aber aufgegeben, weil die vielen nahe gelegenen Gleisanlagen eine Sprengung wohl kaum überstanden hätten. Der nördliche Abstieg vom Flakbunker führt uns direkt zum U-, S- und Fernbahnhof Berlin-Gesundbrunnen. Wieder ein Bahnhof mit sehr wechselhafter Geschichte, besonders auch nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg, lag er doch direkt an der Grenze zwischen dem sowjetischen und dem französischen Sektor. Provokationen waren vorprogrammiert. Hier ein Ausschnitt aus dem Buch "Berlin - Abseits der Pfade" von Mirko Moritz Kraetsch: "Die Ost-Berliner Regierung hatte an einem Wasserturm die drei großen Buchstaben „DDR“ anbringen lassen. Da das Bahngelände zum West-Berliner Bezirk Wedding gehörte, lag es im Französischen Sektor. Der französische Stadtkommandant sah die Anbringung Ost-Berliner Hoheitszeichen in seinem Sektor als Provokation an und forderte die sofortige Entfernung der drei Buchstaben, andernfalls drohte er mit der sofortigen Sprengung des Wasserturms. Er ließ Schützenpanzer auf der Swinemünder Brücke in Stellung gehen und einen Maschinengewehrstand auf dem nahen Hertha-Sportplatz errichten." Zeiten gab´s...Wir liefen noch durch die Behmstraße, bekannt durch die ehemalige Sportanlage von Hertha BSC, und über die gleichnamige Brücke, von der aus man wunderbar auf den 90°-Bogen der breiten Bahnanlage blicken kann. Eine weitere schöne Aussicht auf den von Gesundbrunnen kommenden Bahnverkehr hatten wir anschließend vom Schwedter Steg. Nach kurzem Besuch des Schwedter Karees gingen wir dann schnurstracks zurück zum Ausgangpunkt am U-Bahnhof Reinickendorfer Straße.Hier geht es zu meinem 2. Streifzug zum Thema "Abseits der Pfade": komoot.de/tour/369139269

      Today is my second foray into the book "Berlin - Abseits der Pfade" by Mirko Moritz Kraetsch, which I was really looking forward to because it led through 'my' Neukölln. I knew all the highlights in advance, but I did not know many of the things that are reported in the book.The start was at the "New World". This name was given to the amusement park from the Hasenheide to the Columbiadamm at the end of the 19th century. After the Second World War, the well-known building remained in which all kinds of events still take place today. I myself can still remember crazy rock concerts by Earth, Wind & Fire, Manfred Mann's Earthband and many others.We went to the Hermannplatz underground station, which Kraetsch describes as the most splendid in the Berlin network, as it has ceilings up to 7 m high in the basement and also has a direct underground connection with the Karstadt department store. For years I got out here to go to school.Up on the Hermannberg I walked over the Wissmannstraße to the Hasenheide, which we kids used to call Jahnpark, probably because of the monument erected there by the gymnastics father. In the Wissmannstraße there used to be the Hasenheide mountain brewery, which later became the Bergschloß brewery. Today the Workshop of Cultures is based here.I only walked briefly to the Hasenheide as far as the open-air cinema and the Hasenschänke, a café and kiosk. Several homeless people stayed under the roof in the kidney-shaped look and denied me a photo of the entire building 🙁.After that I soon reached the Rollberg, one of my "playgrounds" as a child. Even back then it was a so-called "problem corner", which it has remained to this day, although gutting and rebuilding from the 1960s onwards actually wanted to change this. In addition, this area was shaped for decades by the Kindle brewery. Today the brewhouse still reminds of it, in which there are exhibitions of contemporary art alongside other events.Past the largest still existing water tower in Berlin (between Leykestrasse and Mittelweg) I now hiked in the direction of Lessinghöhe, Thomashöhe and Körnerpark, three connected green spaces. The two heights were created at the end of World War II, when the allotment gardens there were flooded with war waste. The Körnerpark was a former gravel pit and is therefore well below street level.After crossing Karl-Marx-Straße I found myself in Rixdorf, the origin of Neukölln. Böhmischer Gottesacker, Böhmische Strasse or Böhmisch-Rixdorf (today Richard-Platz) show who was there when this village was founded. This is also indicated by the Bohemian chalice in the Neukölln coat of arms. You can still see him on the bay window of the former schoolhouse.
      Also worth seeing is the old forge, which is still in function, as well as many houses that represent the village character.
      Via a passage it went back to the Karl-Marx-Straße, in which next to the passage cinema, which is currently is a corona test center, the Neukölln Opera is also located. I often visited both and I can absolutely recommend them.Also worth mentioning is the traditional cultural location 'Saalbau Neukölln' (Karl-Marx-Str. 141), which was a long, long time ago a horse-changing station on the arterial road to the south.On the further way back towards Hermannplatz, I paid a visit to the Ganghofer indoor swimming pool, in which I did my free swimmer, and the Albert-Schweitzer-Gymnasium, where I was driven to graduate school. In between there was also a view of the 68m high tower of the Neukölln town hall.That was 2 intense hours today, not only because of the many personal memories, but also because of the extreme contrasts. Poverty and prosperity, kitsch and art, mountains of rubbish and lovingly cherished tree slices, individuality and neighborhood help, etc. don't let go of you so quickly.This is my first foray on the subject of "Off the beaten track": komoot.de/tour/316006235

      After breakfast, Jörg, who already had to go home today, was greeted with a manly goodbye. Flea and I then did a little lap around the Diemelsee to run out and relax.This was a highly recommended route that Flea chose. At the beginning and at the end we went through the tourist town of Heringshausen, which will quickly be overcrowded during vacation times, at least if you take the masses of parking spaces as a basis for calculation. After we had left this village over the pier, we reached the lido, from where you have beautiful views of Heringshausen and the pier.Now we went west along the lakeshore and it became more and more lonely and beautiful. The nature reserve at the western end of the Diemelsee was really idyllic, a paradise for flora and fauna, especially for the bird world. Here the Itter also flows into the Diemelsee.After crossing this small river, the first sweaty ascent came to a mountain plateau, which lies exactly on the border between Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia. In between we always had very nice views of the Diemelsee.After up comes down. We descended through quite dense forest to Helminghausen, a small town with a pretty church. In addition, the dam wall and the associated hydropower plant of the Diemelsee belong to this village, the next highlight of our round.For me personally, now came the most beautiful section, the panorama trail. First he had to gain height (about 120m) and then it went on very narrow paths through light deciduous forest for a longer distance at the same level. The lake below glittered again and again through the trees and foliage. Wonderful! Sometimes the path also ran through very steep terrain. Those who are not suitable for high altitudes could run into problems here.After the last descent, we walked again for about 1,000 meters along the lakeshore before getting back into our car in Heringshausen.to the tour of Floh: komoot.de/tour/362869503

      This last stage of the Boniface Path made every effort to make it as uncomfortable as possible for us.While the weather has been gracious to us in the last few days and with a few exceptions only made it rain around us, today it struck with all its might. Right at the beginning, icy winds were joined by hail, sleet and snow and that of course on an open field on a ridge. As soon as we were in the forest, the irrigation stopped, and then we could rain on us again unhindered on the next free dirt road.So we tormented ourselves in the direction of Burg Herzberg and were delighted when we not only reached the castle, but also read tempting signs that promised food and drink to go in the courtyard from Friday to Sunday from 11:00 a.m. Finally the tide turned in our favor, had it not been for the massive, locked oak gate at the castle entrance. Shit ...Flea sought his salvation in the embrace of the pilgrim cross and then let his preserved strength penetrate to us, so that despite all the hardship we happily made the descent from the Herzberg to our car with heated seats.At the end of a long-distance hike of several days, a conclusion should of course not be missing. But for me that is brief. I am amazed how the three of us worked, almost like clockwork. That started at the almost general staff-like start of the day. The bathroom was divided into exact time windows. Jörg took over the kitchen service without grumbling and after he had understood the principle of the coffee machine, it went absolutely smoothly. During the tours there were the typical problems of triangular relationships, where 2 against 1 always mopped. But since the assignment changed evenly, everyone had a turn, so this peripheral problem had also been solved. The afternoons and evenings were divided into work, food, developing photos and serving Komoot. Since I was always the last to develop, I accordingly had to endure the most ridicule. But since I am the oldest in our group, I endured this with serenity.
      So: I'd love to do it again

      Today's tour was quite unspectacular, but still very nice for us. A mix of forest, field and meadow paths paired with village or city crossings.The settlements all looked relatively deserted or on the decline. In Neukirchen, for example, half of the city center was for sale. This shows that the North Hessian area is relatively structurally weak. In Frielendorf, the city's progress seems to depend solely on the success of the Hexion chemical factory. But in between there are always houses, homesteads and farmhouses that can hold their own wonderfully.Today we enjoyed the hike itself, the "eating" of the kilometers, the conversations, our breaks, especially the one where we beheaded the sparkling wine in our holiday home. There was also a great feeling that we were almost there.Tour of Fredchau: komoot.de/tour/361809535

      It was very cold, very windy, sometimes stormy and very rainy today. Constant peeling off and on of the outerwear was the order of the day.
      But there were also some spectacular skies and great colors to see that can only be experienced after heavy rainfall.
      Yesterday we left one of our cars in Fritzlar and this morning drove directly to Frielendorf, thus turning the direction of travel.Today's stage differed greatly from the previously hiked sections of the Bonifatius Path. Instead of in the forest, we were out and about in fields, villages and towns today. A nice change.We didn't see much of Frielendorf because we started right on the outskirts. We will catch up on the inspection tomorrow.This was followed by the villages of Welcherod and Stolzenbach, small pretty towns, before heading to the town of Borken, which can look back on a long history of brown coal mining. The city is quite interesting, but there are also a few kilometers to be covered on pavement and one wonders why the Bonifatiuspfad leads through it for so long, but e.g. leaves the nature reserve Borkener See on the left.The little village of Kleinenglis was rather inconspicuous, but with an excellent butcher shop that is well-known beyond the village limits. Shortly before the lunch break we were able to buy some goodies there.Continuing through smaller forest passages and across fields, the Rothhelmshausen and the Büraberg were visited before reaching the town of Fritzlar. The latter houses the pretty St Brigida Chapel, a Calvary Path and a cemetery. You can also visit parts of the foundation walls of the former Büraburg there.Then we finally ran into Fritzlar and enjoyed the dry weather. A few photos and an ice cream on the market square later, we had made this highly recommended tourTour by Jörg: komoot.de/tour/361367963

      We should have known: Boniface is one of the ice saints! It is accordingly cold here at the beginning of May. We even had to put the beer from the terrace in the fridge to warm up. After this necessary and vital measure was done this morning, we nevertheless started our 3rd stage of the Bonifatiusweg from Naumburg (Hesse) to Fritzlar.We crossed the huge hiking area of the Habichtswald, which was at least partially spared from the bark beetle due to the high proportion of deciduous trees. Striking along the way were the many boundary stones, here called Herrensteine, which separated the various properties from one another a long time ago.Also very interesting is the Johanneskirche, whose foundation walls from the 8th and 9th centuries can still be admired in the middle of the forest. A trade route protected by the Franks ran from northeast to southwest here.The absolute highlight today, however, should be the city of Fritzlar, founded by Bonifatius in the 8th century. However, there was a brief interlude in the marketplace. We were literally driven from this beautiful place by the onset of heavy rain and fled to our car. But tomorrow we'll be back!The tour description from Floh: komoot.de/tour/360957538

      That was a lot better today than yesterday. Weather great, tour with many highlights and the forest in much better condition, although it is ailing here too.The evening before, we had already parked a car at the end point in Naumburg and were able to start this morning directly from our holiday home on the Twistesee. First we went down to the lake and then to Braunsen, where we crossed the Twiste. Now a long, strong ascent in the forest awaited us, which we left after about 4 kilometers at the French oak. From here we already had a nice view of Volkhardinghausen, which we reached half an hour later. The highlights here were the monastery, the monastery pond and the Haflingerhof.
      We reached our next major stopover in Höhnscheid after hiking through the Wattertal, further, partly dense forests and along the Sieberinghauser pond and the Jeppenteich.
      Incidentally, the route from Twistesee to Höhnscheid is almost identical to part of the cultural hiking route from Bad Arolsen (komoot.de/tour/344034630). Höhnscheid with its castle and horse stud is well worth seeing.Now our main goal of this stage came closer: the Weidelsburg. Before that, we had to walk over other forest and field paths to Ippinghausen, a small town near Wolfhagen, before we could tackle the ascent. The castle itself is the largest of its kind in Hesse, built on columnar basalt, a top foundation.The descent was quick because we took the direct tour down the mountain. Arrived at the foot of the mountain, we visited the former basalt quarry before we walked straight to Naumburg.Tour of Fredchau: komoot.de/tour/360502414
