      Today I was looking for the "ruined Finnish huts in the forest" (komoot.de/highlight/833157).Although the highlight is a bit wrongly positioned, I also found the huts, only to then realize that they are not dilapidated, let alone abandoned, but rather inhabited or at least used.As compensation, there was an abandoned manor on the way (?). What was striking was the number of tiled stoves, one in almost every room.It was astonishing and terrifying that there were already so many ticks on the way

      I already knew the hospital from driving past, and today I took the time to visit it. As recommended by Joggingbrot (komoot.de/tour/227066139), I also packed my health insurance card.The hospital opened in 1976. After the fall of the Wall, Helios continued to operate it until 2007 and has been empty since then. The hospital was in the press 2 years ago because patient files that were forgotten were found during the move: berliner-zeitung.de/mensch-metropole/der-akten-skandal-im-ehemaligen-stasi-krankenhaus-in- berlin-book-li. 50812In the immediate vicinity is the former government hospital of the GDR, which is in even better shape - film recordings are often made there.

      Today I used the curfew sports slot from 10pm to midnight for a little exploration tour in the dark to admire the "Pink Moon".I usually don't go jogging at this time, but I would have guessed that it wasn't much less going on than on a normal cool lockdown Monday evening

      After driving by here many times, I finally managed to climb it today.Since 2015, the former building rubble dump has officially been the highest point in Berlin at 120.7 m. This went unnoticed for over 15 years; the landfill was ended in 1998.Before that, the Teufelsberg was the highest at 120.1 m - a mountain of rubble. The highest natural elevation is the Great Müggelberg at 115m.Another source says that the title of the highest mountain was worked out: “The change was easy. The Heim family had carted a few loads of sand up the mountain and placed a large boulder on it "

      After I had roughly estimated the length of the lap at about 800 m on an earlier visit (komoot.de/tour/29581879), I verified this information today by doing 10 laps.I tested my new skates because my old ones crumbled last week (komoot.de/tour/347900593) - test passed!

      Unexpected childcare made it possible for me to tackle one of my home rounds for the first time this year.
      While driving, I noticed the new “live tracking” function. A little research showed that I will not be able to stream my tours with it in the future, it is more aimed at security, to let relatives know where you are hanging out. Nice gimmick.

      After the daycare centers are closed again, I aired the little one on the Tempelhofer Feld today. Although you can take the airing out literally, there was a nasty, cold wind whistling that the little cyclist could hardly master in a headwind.
      My 25 year old skates slowly disintegrated during the tour. But it was still enough to get back to the starting point and now they have already been disposed of.

      Because we thought that we could walk comfortably and smoothly along the Wutach, we climbed up the Lotenbachklamm beforehand to make a few meters in altitude. That would not have been necessary because the Wutach has to go up and down sufficiently.
      Nevertheless, the gorge was worth it: very beautiful!

      I've driven through here many times, but haven't noticed the numerous castle ruins or the once largest watch factory in the world.
      I made up for that today: impressive!

      Lost places are rarer in this area and not as spectacular as in the area I usually visit. So I was all the more enthusiastic about this find:Several years ago the tennis club stopped playing without a word and completely neglected the maintenance of the site.After all, the club house should now be made usable again for the local boy scouts.(schwarzwaelder-bote.de/inhalt.villingen-schwenningen-endet-tennisheim-wird-wiederbelebt.5a47bec1-2b8b-423d-b16b-2198fdb8733d.html)
