      Dozens of storks, hundreds of swans and countless wild geese visit the wonderfully natural landscape around the Blankensee south of Berlin every year. Make your way to beautiful Teltow-Fläming and find out why the area is a perfect area for numerous species of birds.Getting there is like a little adventure. At the central S-Bahn stations Berlin Hauptbahnhof, Potsdamer Platz, Südkreuz or Lichterfelde-Ost you get on the regional express RE3, which takes you to Trebbin every hour. From October 5th to December 12th you will bridge the section Ludwigsfelde to Trebbin with the RE3B bus. From here, the Kranich-Express takes you to Blankensee. You can find out how to call him here: vtf-online.de/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/pdf2019_12/R778.pdfAt the Waldfrieden stop it finally starts and you are already in the middle of nature. Your first destination is the NaturParkZentrum with its bizarre giant spiders, inviting huts and grazing sheep. You may already be able to observe the first wild birds in the pastures and fields.You climb very gently to the Fuchsberg in the Glauer Bergen and enjoy a wonderful panorama over the pine landscape below the wooden summit cross with picnic area. After the descent, you can indulge yourself in the Hofcafé Fritz with delicious cakes and fragrant bread.You have the best chance of observing our feathered friends extensively from the bird-watching tower in the Nuthe-Nieplitz nature reserve. The shimmering Blankensee is also part of it, where some cozy wooden benches invite you to linger and dream.You return with the Kranich-Express via Trebbin to Berlin, where you have access to the S-Bahn network again.

      The cormorant is a controversial guest in our realms. He is often referred to as an insatiable immigrant who is robbing the fish stocks. The proud black bird has been a native species for more than 7,000 years. So it's time to get to know it better.With the S-Bahn line S3 you get to the train station Erkner east of Berlin every 20 minutes. On the border with Brandenburg you hike along the Bretterscher Graben hiking trail over romantically winding wooden walkways into the swamp and wetland of the Gosener Wiesen.The largest nature reserve in Berlin, the Müggelspreeniederung Köpenick, is known only to a few Berliners. Here, on the Gosener meadows and along the Gosener Graben, a number of bird species feel at home, which appreciate the peace and nature of the area. On the offshore islets of the Seddinsee you will meet happy swan families, ducks sloshing on the waves and of course the cormorant. It is not uncommon to see him sitting on gnarled branches with outstretched wings and soaking up the sun.If you are inquisitive, you can learn more about the individual bird species on numerous information boards. With a bit of luck you will also discover the blue shimmering kingfisher that nests on the banks of the river.Over the idyllic Triglawbrücke on the edge of the Dämeritzsee you slowly enter civilization. From Erkner, the S-Bahn will bring you back to the urban jungle.

      It all started with two escaped animals from an animal owner. The pair of Canada geese found a new home at Tegeler See, brooded and provided for a population of several hundred animals in the Berlin area. Many of them have remained loyal to Lake Tegel, so that you will regularly encounter the chattering two-legged friends with white cheeks and black necks on a relaxed walk on the Greenwich promenade.The S25 line of the S-Bahn is your feeder to the Canada geese. Every 20 minutes the train stops at Tegel S-Bahn station, your starting point. From here you walk through Alt-Tegel directly to the shore of Lake Tegel. In late autumn and winter you can hear the happy chattering and croaking of the water birds from afar. Make yourself comfortable on one of the many benches and follow their hustle and bustle.Then it's always along the water, over small bridges, past jetties and beautiful sandy bays. At Reiherwerder you can, with a bit of luck, watch the eponymous bird hunting for delicious fish.You now turn into the forest to the game reserve in the Tegeler Forest. It's hairier and bristly here than on the water, because wild boars and deer are already waiting to be fed by you. The way back takes you past Berlin's oldest tree, fat Marie. It has stood proudly here for around 900 years.When you arrive at the Tegeler Hafen, the tour is almost over. Say goodbye to the happy water birds, then get on the S-Bahn home.

      Well camouflaged, the gray goose hides in the bushes. The stately wild bird is the largest native species of geese and ancestor of the domestic geese. Greylag geese are absolutely communicative animals and chatter to themselves in all kinds of sounds. They are actually migratory birds, but for a few years now more and more of them have been wintering in Berlin. You have the best chance of looking at them in peace along the Tiefwerder Wiesen in Spandau.Every ten minutes the S-Bahn stops at Spandau station with lines S3 and S9. The banks of the Havel are only a few hundred meters away from the train station, so you will soon be walking along the beautiful riverside path. A few cheeky ducks keep appearing between passing barges and boats.You cross the Havel over the Schulenburg bridge and are now very close to the Tiefwerder Wiesen. From here it is worth going a little slower and more calmly, because the greylag goose is a shy representative of its species. You hike over beautiful wooden walkways through beautiful nature in the middle of the city and can stop here and there to look out for the wild birds.Once you have left the meadows behind you, you will soon be walking through relics of the Ice Age. The Murellenberg and the associated gorge shape the landscape to this day. Passing the Waldbühne, you can either complete your round at the Pichelsberg S-Bahn station or you can walk a little further to the Olympiastadion S-Bahn station.

      Pack your binoculars and head to the Kranichsberg with the shimmering Flakensee on the edge of Berlin. Even if you will probably have to be satisfied with the mountain name when it comes to cranes, a magnificent view awaits you from its wooden observation tower. You will also encounter numerous wild birds on the way.With the S-Bahn line S3 it goes out to Erkner. The train stops here every 20 minutes. After you have crossed the railway tracks once, you walk over the leisurely flowing Löcknitz and turn into the forest area. Stroll along the Theodor-Fontane-Weg, which meanders along the banks of the Flakensee, in a wonderfully romantic and poetic way.Once you turn right, the path leads you towards Rüdersdorfer Heide and you climb the Kranichsberg. Now at the latest it is worthwhile to pull out the binoculars and let your gaze wander over the Müggelsee and Flakensee. You are sure to spot a few migratory birds in the distance.With new impressions in your luggage you descend to the Woltersdorfer Schleuse, where not only boats and ships ensure a hustle and bustle. Geese, swans and ducks fill the area with funny chatter. If you feel like stopping off, you will find a few good options right on the water here.On the western bank of the Flakensee, it goes back to Erkner, where your way home with the S-Bahn starts.

      Mushroom of the tour: Krause mother hen (Sparassis crispa)Occurrence: You can find the root parasite on trunks of pines, spruces and firs in the flatlands and in mountain locations up to 1,000 meters in height.Preparation: The Krause mother hen tastes best when you braise it in butter and season with egg, onion, pepper and salt.Your stalking for the delicious mushrooms begins at the Königs Wusterhausen S-Bahn station. Every 20 minutes, the S46 S-Bahn takes you to the gates of Berlin and out into the forest. After only a few hundred meters you will find yourself in the Tiergarten recreation and nature reserve. The area was laid out in 1725 by King Friedrich Wilhelm I for hunting red deer, fallow deer and wild boar as well as partridges and pheasants. In addition to hunting for mushrooms, you can send your feet on a journey of discovery on a barefoot path and find out about the local flora and fauna on the forest nature trail.Via Gräbendorfer Straße you walk into the forest area between Königs Wusterhausen and Senzig. Keep your eyes open here, because this is where the mushroom search really begins. For a long break, you can sit down on the banks of the Great Clay Pond and unpack your lunch break. With the mushroom basket filled, you pass the White Mountain and through the Senziger Heide back to the zoo, the starting point of your mushroom tour.

      Mushroom of the Tour: Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius)Occurrence: The chanterelle grows in deciduous and coniferous forests, it especially loves spruce and moss. You can find it from July.Preparation: Bacon and onions are perfect companions for the nutty mushroom. Don't fry it too long to get some "crunch".Between Potsdam and Berlin, the Parforceheide is one of the last, really large, forest areas in the Berlin-Brandenburg conurbation. An ideal starting point for mushroom hunting. With the S-Bahn line S7 you arrive every 20 minutes at the S-Bahn station Griebnitzsee.After just a few minutes you leave civilization behind you and find yourself in a wonderfully pristine forest area. Although the city is not far away, the chances are good that you have the paths all to yourself. It feels like the landscape changes every time you turn the next corner. Everything is there between lush green mixed forest, fragrant conifers and dry heather soils. A good prerequisite for a colorful forest mushroom pan in the evening!Over the idyllic Saupfuhl you slowly leave the quiet forest paths and walk over the Potsdam districts of Kirchsteigfeld and Rabbitberg over the Nuthe to the Potsdam-Rehbrücke station. From here the trams 91 and 93 will take you to downtown Potsdam with a connection to the S-Bahn network or alternatively you can take the regional trains RE7 or RB33 to Berlin.

      Mushroom of the tour: giant umbrella or parasol mushroom (Macrolepiota procera)Occurrence: The fungus prefers grassy areas in clearings, forest edges and roadsides.Preparation: The umbrella is traditionally prepared like a schnitzel. Turn the umbrella in the flour, egg and breadcrumbs and fry it until crispy brown in a well-greased pan.This tour takes you a little further away from Berlin: to the Schorfheide. A real mushroom Eldorado around the impressive Chorin Monastery. Just in time for the beginning of autumn and the mushroom season, guided mushroom tours take place here again and again, if you want to expand your knowledge of mushroom science. The S-Bahn takes you to the centrally located train stations Potsdamer Platz, Hauptbahnhof and Gesundbrunnen. Here you get on the regional express RE3, which takes you out to Chorin every hour.From the train station you walk with your mushroom basket through beautiful forest area. So keeping your eyes open is worth it. Your search will bring you past the Amtssee with the former Cistercian monastery. If you like, you can tour the brick Gothic building before continuing to look out for chestnuts and porcini mushrooms. Our route takes you to the Choriner Knack viewpoint, where you can take a break and enjoy the vastness of the Schorfheide.At the Nettelgraben the earth becomes more humid and you walk through a swamp area. The old moat once ensured the water supply to the Chorin monastery and was dug by the monks in the 13th century. Today frogs and blindworms feel right at home here. Your round ends - hopefully with a bulging mushroom basket - back at Chorin station, where the regional train will bring you back to the S-Bahn connections every hour.

      Mushroom of the tour: Birch mushroom (Leccinum scabrum)Occurrence: From June to October you can find the birch mushroom, as the name suggests, within birch areas.Preparation: Fried birch mushrooms taste delicious with a few diced shallots and strips of ham, refined with a little parsley.With this tour we take you into the forests southeast of Berlin and into the home of the tasty birch mushrooms, the Wüstemarker Forst. Zeuthen train station is the perfect starting point for your mushroom hunt. The S-Bahn lines S46 and S8 bring you here every 20 minutes from downtown Berlin. For the first two kilometers you walk through the settlement areas of Zeuthen and to the western edge of the wild garden with the Galgenberg as a small elevation.Along wide fields it goes directly into the Wüstemarker forest. You will find a wide variety of trees here, from pines and beeches to birches and oaks - and, of course, mushrooms in autumn if the weather is right. Take sufficient time to inspect the soil and fill your mushroom basket. If you need a break, a rest bench by the side of the path invites you to linger.Once you've sniffed enough forest air, you slowly return to the starting point. On the way there you will take the village church Miersdorf with you. In the beautiful field stone church you will find relics of the last ice age, because the field stones once came to us on the glaciers of Scandinavia and were a popular and inexpensive building material.

      Mushroom of the tour: boletus (Boletus edulis)Occurrence: You can find it on nutrient-poor soils as well as layers of spruce needles and in mossy terrain.Preparation: A risotto with porcini mushrooms, seasoned with onions, garlic and white wine, garnished with parmesan and truffle oil is a feast!Do you fancy a delicious porcini mushroom risotto? Then you have a good chance of finding something in the forest north of Berlin in mushroom weather. The S-Bahn line S8 brings you every 20 minutes to rural Mühlenbeck-Mönchmühle, your starting point in the Pilze. You first walk through the center of Mühlenbeck, then out into the fields and finally dive into the shady forest area.Off the beaten track, you will also find rarely used paths with sometimes moss-covered, sometimes sandy, spruce-needle-strewn underground. Exactly the right terrain in which porcini mushrooms feel good. With the mushroom basket waving, you hike to the Summter Lake, which is just as deserted as it is idyllic and invites you to take a break.For a section you leave the forest area in favor of open fields, before another forest section joins for mushroom hunting. From the north you hike back to Mühlenbeck-Mönchmühle and, if the conditions are good, you have enough ingredients for your risotto in your luggage.
