When we hiked around Buckow last week, we met a couple that told us about a huge dam build by beavers on the other side of the town. I was quite curious to see it and so I followed his description “at the end of the village direction Strausberg along Sophienfließ. In fact, it was not one dam but at least ten of them embedded in a magical, shire-like and blooming landscape where the sunlight falling through the trees is caught in the creek and the birds are singing as if there was a competition to win.
