Berlin Day Hike: Autumn Colours In Biesow

Now it’s undeniable—the dark winter times are coming. Since I hike and photograph, I experienced a change in mindset when looking at the weather: Through the lens every kind of weather is beautiful and has it’s charming parts. Very bright sunshine can eliminate all shadows and makes landscapes flat and boring, while raindrops on the lens can serve as an unpredictable but beautiful filter. Everything depends on the photographers point of view.

The body has to be prepared as well. As my Grandma said: There is no bad weather, just bad clothes.

Trough the forest to Biesow



Krugers Forsthaus

In Biesow, a very small parish in the middle of the forest, we witnessed a hunting party. Peter Kruger, the owner of the Krugers Forsthaus (forester’s lodge), was very kind to show us around in his wonderful and sensibly renovated home, which serves as a location for trainings, hunting parties and similar purposes today. In summer you can even sleep outside on an attic under the starry sky. It is so beautiful, I will definitively keep this in mind for the next occasion.

  1. “There is no bad weather, just bad clothes.” I really love this sentiment! It’s so true! When you have the right clothing, you can be happy in any kind of weather. I used to do salmon spawning surveys and tide pool research in the pouring rain, but with layers and high quality rain gear, I was happy to be out there.

    I have also noticed how alive everything seems to look just before and during a storm or with clouds overhead. The sun does sort of make everything flat. Great post and pics! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I was wondering if it’s possible to do this tour by using public transportation? Where would be the nearest train station or something coming from Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg? I would like to do this route on Sunday. Do we need a map or could I find it on komoot? (Sorry, if these are stupid questions I am new to the website) 🙂
