Berlin Day Hike: First Mushrooms And A Happy Dog in Teschendorf

I have been there several times and the surroundings of Teschendorf are always worth a hike. Horses, cows, vast green landscapes with slight hills (very tiny Brandenburg-like hills, of course) and light forests build a great shire atmosphere which invites you to to immerse in nature.

Berlin Day Hike: A Trip To Oder River

We had a hot sunny day near to Oder River in Stolpe and Stolzenhagen. Pavlov saw and played with dogs and learned, how to jump into the water from above. At first he was kind of reserved, but once he got it, he was unstoppable.

Berlin Day Hike: Through The Forest to Klobichsee

A fine hike on a bright Sunday afternoon to beautiful Klobichsee. Have a cup of coffee in the middle of the forest at Drei Eichen.

Berlin Day Hike: Around Waldsieversdorf

We made a tour around Däbernsee on a bright Sunday afternoon with Jörgs parents and had some fine cakes in our evergreen café Café Tillia in Waldsieversdorf.

Berlin Day Hike: Around The Lakes in Blumenthal

We had a very refreshing walk through the woods near Blumenthal, between Tiefensee and Prötzel. Jörg and Pavlov even took a short dip into the lake which was very refreshing because the lake is very cool underneath the surface. For a Sunday afternoon it was absolutely calm. No one except of us has been there – despite the beautiful beach. I guess it’s too far from a parking opportunity.

Location: Stadtstelle, B168 between Prötzel and Tiefensee, direction North to Blumenthalsee, southern shore, Fauler See, Southern shore, northwest to Großer Pichesee (which is not really a lake), south direction B168, if you choose this way you have to walk along the street for about 1km which is really unpleasant here / Distance: 9 km / from city center: ca. 30 km / East / Weather: 25 °C, sunny  / Camera: Nikon D500, 35mm lens

Berlin Day Hike: Flower Fields Forever

We had a very colorful summer hike near Ihlow in Brandenburg. As it is June, everything is in bloom and the fields show their most splendid dresses. We even saw a deer, but fortunately Pavlov didn’t. I guess he is a city dog.


If you are around Ihlow, don’t miss to visit Biohof Café and have a rhubarb yeast cake. Yummy!

Berlin Day Hike: Summer Day Around Tornow Lake

We had a nice day in the forest and at the lakes around Pritzwalker Mühle. Pavlov had a lot of fun in the forests and I’m very happy that he doesn’t show any ambition to hunt (except of pigeons in the city). At the end we bought some homemade honey next to Haus Tornow am See and a man told us the moved history of the building (Orphanage, war hospital, home for difficult adolescents).

Take a seat and have some coffee and cake on the lake side. It’s a really wonderful place.

Berlin Day Hike: Upward Facing Dog Around Görlsdorf

We went to Görlsdorf to have a nice weekend with friends an d took several short hikes around the village which are now all shown in this post. Görlsdorf is in the East of Brandenburg, not far from Seelow and it is a very picturesque and natural location.

The snake on the picture is a gras snake (Ringelnatter) and it’s not dangerous.

Berlin Day Hike: A Taste Of Spring Near Garzin

Still not in form, we chose to have a short walk near Garzin along Haussee and over the fields. What shall I say? Spring really tries, but the weather is still cold and mostly dark and a lot of plants still wait for their signal to start their new life in bloom. Pavlov is getting bigger and bigger and is coming back when we are calling quite steadlily. He chased the two huge cranes over the fields and even came back when I called him in the middle of hunting. Maybe only because the cranes started flying away and he recognized, that his chances of catching them were very thin.

On the last picture Pavlov is becoming a grown up :-). He still pees like a baby, only some times – very rarely – he lifts his leg.

Berlin Day Hike: Sunny Walk With Two Dogs

Having a dog, means hanging out in the park quite frequently. But who would have thought, that this leads to new friends? Like that I got to know Palina. She fell in love with Pavlov and told me, she will soon have a dog herself. Than I got to know her Mum Natalija and her dog Pandora, a 3 month old Maremmano-Mix. I think we just connected at first sight and I invited them to come over to the little house on the prairie. What a fun afternoon we had!
