- Wahlberliner und seit einem Jahr Wanderenthusiast -
Dieses Jahr möchte ich den 66-Seen-Wanderweg beenden und mein selbstgestecktes Ziel von 1000 Wanderkilometern erreichen.
Ich bin immer auf der Suche nach Mitwanderern oder Wanderern / Gruppen, denen ich mich anschließen kann. Gehe aber auch gerne mal eine entspannte Tour alleine durch das grüne, wasserreiche Berliner Umland.
Für Tipps, Tricks, Touren, Anregungen und Mitwandermöglichkeiten, könnt ihr mich unter email@example.com oder 017660831582 (SMS/Whatsapp) erreichen.

Following a call from Frank Meyer, a group of hiking enthusiasts went on the tower hiking trail to Bad Freienwalde today.
In pleasant autumn weather, the path led us through a wonderful forest landscape with now and then unfamiliar views into the distance for Brandenburg. This route in the Märkische Schweiz nature park is special in terms of the elevation profile. It also wonderfully connects 4 observation towers in the area, which guarantee great views when they are open. The very eager can also collect stamps and thus get their tower diploma.
Off the track there were lots of great conversations, shop talk and tour inspirations again today. It's always a great experience to get to know known and unknown faces of the Komoot community live on a hike and to philosophize about their shared passion.
Many thanks to Frank for making these tours and experiences possible and I'm looking forward to participating in one of the next group hikes again.P.s .: If someone recognizes himself in the pictures and does not want this, just contact me. ;-)Here is the hike and detailed tour description from Frank:

At the end of my stay in Hamburg I wanted to take a closer look at the old town today. It started at the Jungfernsteig stop. The path led to the Sankt Petrikirche and then to the Rathausplatz, with its very imposing building. Then we went to the Chamber of Commerce and across the consolation bridge to the memorial of the St. This was destroyed in the devastating city fire of 1842, rebuilt and destroyed again in World War II.
We crossed the Cremon Bridge to Deichstrasse, where the major fire broke out back then. Here are some of the oldest houses in Hamburg. We continued past the Sankt Katharinenkirche and of course a detour to the Speicherstadt and Hafencity could not be missed. We ended the tour at the Chilehaus near the Meßberg underground station.
Of course, the typical Hamburg weather was a must. So today we were accompanied by sun, rain, wind and clouds in constant change. But we were rewarded with a rainbow for this. You can see him on a picture ;-)
Nice little tour through the old town of Hamburg, with the most important sights. You can also do well if you are staying at Hamburg Central Station. :-)

Today a spontaneous tour through the Hamburg warehouse district. You don't necessarily have to run the first and last 5km ... I just wanted to do a little stretch after the last few days, I had to get some fresh air. xD
The way led me through some garden colonies over the Bille, Billerhuder Island, Bullenhuser Canal and Oberhafen Canal to the Elbe bridges. From here it went to HafenCity and through the pretty Speicherstadt. In typical Hamburg weather, we went along the Elbe promenade to the landing bridges. From here I made a short detour to the Reeperbahn ... Well, you can have seen it, but it's not a highlight. Maybe when you come from the village. xD
Back at the landing stages we went through the old Elbe tunnel to the other side of the harbor to Steinwerder. From here the route leads through the still-used port area back to the Elbe bridges.
A tour that is very close to the city for me. When I get the chance, I'll walk a part of the Alster and take a look at Hamburg's old town.

Today's tour took me through the Lübeck city forest to Schlutup to the Breitling - an expansion of the Trave.
In the further course it goes along the Trave through the beautiful village Gothmund. The original character has been preserved here and there are only thatched-roof houses. You walk on a very beautiful path through the front gardens of the house owners. We continue along the Trave, through a floodplain with wet feet guaranteed to the Schellbruch. In the nature conservation ordinance it says: "The nature reserve serves to preserve a landscape that is characterized by brackish water lagoons, fresh water and meadows and fractures influenced by these, with numerous and species-rich, sometimes rare and endangered flora and fauna."
I could see that with my own eyes. When I was hiking between the fresh and brackish water lakes, several hundred wild geese flew over me, which stopped on the meadows near the water for their onward flight. An unbelievable spectacle could be heard and seen there.
The way led me through the Lauerholz, a dog free run area and over the expressway towards Travemünde back to the beginning of the tour.
All in all a very beautiful route, especially the section on the Trave, Gothmund and the Schellbruch are highly recommended and are welcome to hike afterwards. :-)

Today a spontaneous hike with Cornell. Due to the bad weather forecast, we decided to hike close to the city in order to get away quickly in case of heavy rain ... :)
Luckily we didn't need it. The highlights of the tour for me were the Gatower windmill and the grave of Heidi Hetzer, discovered by chance, with the exciting gravestone. The paths were mostly dry and easy to walk. The actual city share was limited. It almost always went through green park trains, forests and meadows.
At the end there was something in Alt-Kladow to fill up the energy reserves. xDHere's the tour from Cornell:

Today the pilgrimage went to the door under the motto Spandau. Together with Nadine and Ragi, we started at 9:30 a.m. from St. Nicolaikirche (Alt-Spandau). First it went through the old town of Spandau towards the train station. Until we turned into the Spectepark.
Since September 5, 2020 there have been several pilgrimage routes in Spandau, which connect a total of 24 Protestant churches and two Catholic churches in the district.
For this purpose, a separate hiking guide was printed and you can also buy a pilgrim pass and collect stamps along the way.
As we found out, however, Saturday at 9:30 a.m. is not the best time to start, as most of the churches are still closed, so we were unfortunately unable to look inside. Getting the pilgrim pass also turned out to be difficult ... But a pastor had pity on us and actually had something left in the office. xD
In a good mood we walked through numerous church until the weather god was no longer on us. In the pouring rain we still made some distance until we finished our tour wet but happy in a restaurant. We will definitely run the tour again when the weather is nice to collect all the stamps and to decorate the path with more pictures. A wet cell phone is not so easy to use ... xD
Many thanks to the fellow hikers, I'm looking forward to a repeat.If you want more information about the trails and the pilgrim pass, you can find it here:

From Fresdorf, some participants of the virtual relay hikes, to which Frank asked in May and June, followed the traces of the Netflix series Dark to Stahnsdorf.
There were many interesting conversations with known and unknown faces of the Komoot community.
As always, a successful balancing act between "cultural" and community hiking.
At the end there was a nightcap with some hiking friends in the Kaiserpagoda in Stahnsdorf. The food was very tasty and recommended. :)As always, you can find the detailed tour description at
