What to do at these subtropical temperatures Of course, out of the hot city and into the surrounding area. The tour is highly recommended. In addition to the almost consistently good and (auto) stress-free route, the path attracts with plenty of shade, which is extremely pleasant in these midsummer temperatures. The route mainly leads along canals, in the first part on the very idyllic Finow Canal, towards Zehdenick, then between the faster Havel and Voss Canal. There was a small downer because the lovely café at the tourist information office in Liebenwalde was closed. Well, we are in Brandenburg and have therefore eaten the picnic we brought with us.

A nice circular hike with Anette (komoot.de/tour/392126400) along the Rüdnitzer Fließ, through the gorge of the Hellmühler Fließ to the Hellsee, which we circled once on the wonderful hiking trail. It is certainly one of the most beautiful riverside paths in Brandenburg. Back to Rüdnitz we went through the Upstallfließ and past the Mechesee, where we had a nice coffee break in the Alte Schmiede Lobetal. The weather was ideal for hiking. Except for the loop around the Hellsee, the route was only moderately frequented.

Nice and varied tour through beautiful beech forests and with wonderful views over the fields. The hike mainly led through the Mengeringhausen district with a short detour to Braunsen. I couldn't hike the section on Hagenstrasse as planned because a three meter high fence at the solar park cut off my path. This not only led to a detour, but also to an extremely impassable shortcut to the route towards Braunsen. I wouldn't hike this section again like this. The rest was all the nicer for it.

The Rote Land in the northwest of Waldeck and east of Marsberg is characterized by undulating hill country with larger forest areas as well as open grassland and fields. Where the earth emerges, it quickly becomes clear where the name Red Land comes from. The hike began and ended in Arolsen and led mainly on farm roads, most of which were easy to walk. However, I would not recommend two sections of the route. On the one hand, the path along the county road behind the calm forest, which I chose for lack of obvious alternatives. The road is not particularly busy, but I would definitely prefer a path away from the asphalt. Secondly, the section behind Fortsthaus Schmillinghausen up to the crossing of the main road was extremely strenuous because the paths were almost impassable due to deep and muddy furrows or branches and trees lying around.
A note about the track: The specified kilometers are probably incorrect because my GPS apparently had a dropout in between and recorded a loop that I did not hike towards Neudorf.
