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!

Berlin Day Hike: A Walk Around Kleiner Stienitzsee

Two of us not in the best of health, we chose a small walk near our house. This day with two dogs.

Berlin Day Hike: Lost Places near Harnekop

We will come back to visit the huge exposition of GDR motorcycles collected by one of the inhabitants of the abandoned barracks.

Berlin Day Hike: Our House Hike Around Herrensee

We started this afternoon in the rain and we just wanted to have a quick walk before returning to the city. But soon the sun came out and we had some magic light in the forest. So there is something to remember in it: The most ordinary walk can unexpectedly turn into something shiny and bright with a little help from the sun. Pavlov loves running between the trees and mostly obeys very well when we call him back.

Berlin Day Hike: Spectacular Lights at Old Spree

It’s already quite a while ago that we have hiked near Mönchwinkel but there has been a similar situation of light at the time. Dark skies and some sun rays from time to time.
