From the parking lot at the church on Seedorfer castle over the Seedorfer Werder on Schaalseeufer along, past the Küchensee to Pfuhlsee. Beech forest, alder quarry forest and narrow reed belts characterize the landscape. The warm shades of the autumn color of the beech trees and the blue of the sky, mirrored in the wide waters of the Schaalsee, are incredibly beautiful. Rounded off by the mild light in the late afternoon.

Hike in the nature reserve "Salemer Moor with adjacent forests and lakes" from the Garrensee parking lot on the B 208 to the Plötschersee.
The Garrensee with a water depth of 38 m is said to have been rinsed out by flowing meltwater from the glacial glaciers. Just like the Plötschersee (13.5 m deep), the Garrensee is surrounded by steep wooded slopes. The beech is predominant. Both lakes are considered to be low in nutrients. To the south, the Plötschersee turns into a fen. A ditch leads to the Black Kuhle

From the Elbe to the Schaalsee through forests and small villages. The tour led from Lauenburg along the Elbe dike, then via Horst, Nostorf, Schwanheide, Langenlehsten, Valluhn to Pahlhuus in Zarrentin. The Pahlhuus provides information about the Schaalsee Biosphere Reserve and the offers and events of the region. Along the lake to the Kiche and the monastery Zarrentin. To be on the road a bit less traffic, the tour led first north and then in a bow past Klein Zecher and Hollenbek to Gudow. The mansion of Bülow lies hidden behind the field stone church. It is not accessible. From Gudow it went directly into the forest to the valley slopes of Goddess, then the canal crossing over the bridge at Güster. The way back led largely along the canal along Siebeneichen to Lauenburg. The tour is considered a difficult tour, but it leads on long distances on paths (on the canal) partly with loose sand (between Gudow and Güster). Unfortunately, I cleared the tour record when cleaning up the phone instead of the designs for tour. :-( Active driving time after speedometer: 4.5 hours

The tour begins at a parking lot on the road between Schwindebeck and Steinbeck and leads over heathland to Schwindebachquelle. The Schwindebach is u.a. fed from a spring in an alder quarry. Iron precipitates turn the edges of the beach red-orange, forming a strong hue contrast to the lush green. In the spring pot, the outflowing water whirls up the white sand. Another peculiarity of the hike are the ponds on the edge of the Luhe. Diatomaceous earth was mined here in the open pit.

Burial mounds from the Bronze Age characterize a heath landscape. Around the heathland are some oaks, reminiscent of a Hutewald. The surrounding oak birch forest merges into an alder forest to the east with several open water areas. Below the multi-stemmed "Hutebuche" runs a small stream. In such a small area you can gather a lot of different impressions. For me a highlight.

Inspired by the migration of Bruno I wanted at least to the end of the heath blossom still to the Bretziner heath. And it should be a round trip. From Lauenburg on the Elbe along to Boizenburg, past the dune at Gothmann with the south lowlands, to Blücher with its the Schaale low-towering church (good view see Highlight), the Schaale north to Wiebendorf with its well-preserved workers' houses Bretziner heath. Although the heathland is not large. But burial mound from the Bronze Age, the relief is very moving. In this way, a very beautiful heath landscape could be created in a small space. Because of the grave mounds definitely not suitable for driving!
You can forget the way from the Bretziner Heide to Badekow. At first mobile, the path along the field was hardly recognizable and plowed by wild boars, later gravelly coarsely graveled. From Badekow I drove only asphalt roads, because in the end it was already very dusky. For a nice channel photo to graduation, it was enough.

Short walk on the Elbe dike. The sun is setting. It is oppressive and windless. Swift to the water to take the color after the sunset. The last motorboat roars over, then it gets quiet. The moment to pause. On the way back the mosquitoes are buzzing.

With the bike to work (MdRzA) on the high Elbufer along. Great start to the day. The return trip has become considerably longer, and led through the Sachsenwald, which is clearly characterized by the forestry, dead straight roads, right angles, age-same stocks. Much closer to nature and more interesting is the Bille shore with its rivulets, stones and sandbanks. Along the shore leads a Wanderwerg. Or like cyclists say a single trail. For those who want to drive over roots and stones, branches, have fun. I recommend after my trip but a hike with some time. Then you may also be lucky enough to see the dipper and the kingfisher at the babbling Bille. About the Grander mill to the Good Basthorst, to Schwarzenbek and Gülzow the tour ends in Lauenburg in the Old Guard at the ice cream parlor.

My idea was to drive from Hamburg-Bergedorf to Lauenburg along the edge of the Geest. During the planning I have overlooked that a large part of the way from the cemetery at the observatory to Börnsen was marked as a hiking highlight. For Normalo cyclists I can not recommend the way absolutely. Traces indicate mountain bikes that are better off with gradients, roots and sand. I did not have enough grip tires or sufficient route knowledge to clean the tour. So I tormented myself there with the result that the time for the total distance was not enough. The further tour through the Dahlbekschlucht and the Bistal is a bit better to drive. Both cuts, caused by erosion, are already spectacular and worth seeing for our conditions. Even today sand is still transported to the marching trenches.

For me, it's always amazing how fast you can get from Geesthacht to Bergedorf via Horster Damm. Sometimes even quite attractive along water channels and past old houses. Unfortunately, outside the holiday season, a lot of car traffic is on the road.

Ich versuche Radfahren, Naturerleben und Fotografieren unter einen Hut zu bekommen. Ist nicht immer einfach. Einen guten Schnitt fahren oder anhalten? Mir liegt viel an einem besseren Radverkehr. Elbevelotour, Stadtradeln, Mit dem Rad zur Arbeit, #MEHRPLATZFÜRSRAD sind gute Aktionen, um das Radfahren sichtbar zu machen. Mein Motto: pett man sülm.
