      Today the transition from the Upper Allgäu to Ostallgäu, specifically from Immenstadt to Schwangau. The Alpine foothills are simply beautiful and between the many ups and downs we made a few stops to capture a few of these great moments as a picture.

      The goal of the 1st stage on the BKR was Immenstadt. Started in Lindau, it went a little way along Lake Constance towards Bregenz. Shortly before the border, the pan turned north past still controlled border crossings. Very soon I found myself confirmed in my planning to drive "only" 70 km today, because it was very time-consuming to go up and down. All in all a nice tour with great views, but you should definitely be trained or e-motorized. When we arrived in Immenstadt we were rewarded with a great view of the Großer Alpsee.

      Arriving at Lake Constance was unicycling today. By the way - Lake Constance, which I have already avoided, is an unconditional recommendation! Tomorrow we will continue towards Allgäu ... 🚴

      MTB was announced again today. The first step was from Strausberg via Prötzel to Rädikow on "too good" ground for MTB. From here it went on the well-known Brunnentalweg through mixed forest to Bad Freienwalde. The Kurpark with the Kurfürstenquelle were extremely impressive.
      After a flying visit to the northernmost ski jumps in Germany, the Oderlandweg to Falkenberg was followed by a short picnic at the Teufelssee. A path of superlatives: fantastically beautiful landscape, gorges and throats, steep ascents and rapid descents (it was necessary to descend several times), sometimes not dangerous single trails. The Oderlandweg was quite a challenge, but overall it was nice and last but not least it was discovered that there is also a Märkischer Watzmann.

      When the weather was good, we first went to Wriezen to then west of the Alten Oder to Bad Freienwalde. For this purpose, part was on the Brandenburg tour and part on an old railway embankment. At the Kaisereiche, not far from the town hall, there was a picnic. In Schiffmühle we visited the grave of Louis Henri Fontane (father of Theodor Fontane). We continued on a secluded bike path to Hohenwutzen and after a flying visit to the Oder-Neisse bike path, we turned west to the flood sign. We finally came back to Wriezen via Neuküstrinchen with its impressive village church and Altreetz and had thereby crossed the border between Königsberger Neumark and Oberbarnim.
      From Wriezen we went back to Strausberg via the Berlin-Barnim-Oderbruch cycle path. It was a nice interesting tour.

      Despite initial doubts about the weather, we have been touring the Oderbruch again for a long time.
      The Strausberg airfield initially took the Berlin-Barnim-Oderbruch cycle path to Bienenwerder to the Europabrücke. A large sign indicates that the bridge should be passable for pedestrians and cyclists from 2021, which would be very desirable, but remains to be seen!
      On the well-visited Oderdeich the tour continued south to Groß Neuendorf and from there to Wilhelmsaue to the post mill. After a short visit to the ice cream parlor in Letschin (not far from Theodor Fontane's parents' house) the R1 to Neuhardenberg was followed. The round finally ended in Strausberg via Reichenberg and Hohenstein. The tour was relaxed and fortunately rain-free and the whole time there was a crazy smell of rapeseed and lilac in the air ...

      In the permanently beautiful weather, a visit to Märkische Switzerland was announced again today. Buckow was quickly reached via the R1 and a little later the wonderfully beautiful Stobbertal, which is a true Eldorado for hikers and MTB. Easy up and down in beautiful surroundings. We continued east to Altfriedland, where there was a well-deserved picnic at the ruins of the monastery. There we decided to continue towards Oder to the oldest colonial village of the Oderbruch - Neulietzegöricke. Because of Corona, the delicious cake and coffee in the colonists' café were unfortunately only on hand. On a stretch of the Oderbruchbahn cycle path and from Wriezen via the Berlin-Barnim-Oderbruch cycle path, Strausberg was reached again in the evening.

      With the best weather, Müggelsee was the destination today. The east bank of Lake Müggelsee was reached via Hennickendorf, Lichtenow, Kagel, Grünheide, Erkner and through the Hessenwinkel. The northern bank path was then followed - past the still closed Müggelsee lido - all the way to Friedrichshagen. In the small town of Münchehofe, the tomb was visited by Tamara Danz (former front woman with Silly, who died in 1996). From there it went back to the starting point of the tour via Schöneiche, Rüdersdorf and Vogelsdorf. Fortunately, there were some nice MTB sections again this time, although the well-developed paths and sections dominated.

      With the best weather, the tour around the Scharmützelsee was on the program. Via Rehfelde, Kienbaum, Fürstenwalde and Bad Saarow we went on the east side of the lake to the southern turning point of the tour to Wendisch-Rietz. After a picnic the western bank was followed and via Petersdorf on a beautiful forest path we reached the Margrave stones. From Rauen it went to Füwa and on the tour Brandenburg to Lichtenow. On a fantastic bike path that resembled an acacia alley, we reached the starting point of the tour via Hennickendorf. There was a lot of fun!

      After doing a few things at the Strausberger airfield, we went via Klosterdorf and Hohenstein towards R1. The section between Hohenstein and Garzin, where the R1 was reached, was MTB in character. Waldsieversdorf was the turning point of the small tour. All in all a short and beautiful tour in the "fresh air". And since there was nothing to discover, I didn't add any photos to the little trip.

About Gerd

In 2012 habe ich angefangen, Touren der verschiedensten Kategorien mit komoot aufzuzeichnen - anfangs sehr sporadisch, später mit wachsender Begeisterung und Intensität. Die Bewegung an der frischen Luft, egal ob mit Fahrrad, auf Skiern oder "Schusters Rappen" ist Ausdruck meiner Lebenseinstellung.
Gern veröffentliche ich meine Touren und erfahre dazu Lob oder auch konstruktive, ehrlich gemeinte Kritik. Mit Interesse und manchmal auch Bewunderung lese ich die tollen Tourenbeschreibungen oder Infos anderer komootler und gebe bisweilen meine Kommentare ab, wobei es schon eigenartig ist, mit Menschen zu kommunizieren, die man nicht kennt bzw. wahrscheinlich nicht kennenlernen wird - Ausnahmen nicht ausgeschlossen! Das ist interessant und macht zugleich Spass - im besten Sinne des Wortes.
Meine ausgesprochene Missbilligung haben jedoch komootler, die andere Touren nur nachfahren, um lediglich die Bilder der bereits generierten Highlights mehrfach zu fotografieren mit dem Ziel, die Bilder dann von "ihrer" Community vielfach liken zu lassen. So gewonnene "Verdienste" sind aus meiner Sicht wenig ehrenhaft. Aber "schwarze" Schafe gibt es eben überall...
