Today we walked around Herrensee near Strausberg and discovered lots of small wonders in the freshly nourished underbrush after the strong rain last night.

Berlin Day Hike: Cloudy Hike Along Maxsee

Between Buckow and Fürstenwalde/Spree you find the small village of Hoppegarten (not to confuse with Hoppegarten next to Berlin). From there you can take a beautiful walk around the lakes.

Berlin by Night

We had the hottest day today and I stood inside and slept because there were Sahara-like temperatures outside. When it turned dark and a little less hot, I felt the need to go outside for a while to get the summer-in-Berlin-feeling. The yellow glow of the streetlights still does it even when everything else has changed a lot in the last years.

Berlin Day Hike: A Magical Landscape Shaped By Beavers

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.
