The first part of the road was rather boring and I already thought that this would become one of those “lost hikes” because after some kilometers I still didn’t see the lake which I was circling and I was still on a boring dirt road through the forest. But after a camping ground named “Naturfreunde Schmöldesse” it was finally possible to go down to the lake and there was a small single trail not indicated in the map which I took all along the lovely Schmöldesee.

The most beautiful part of the hike was the trail around the small lakes after Streganzer See. An enchanted place with marshland forests, millions of chanting birds, buzzing insects and swans silently crossing the lakes.
The following shores of Dahme river are also very beautiful, but you have to leave the road again and again and I didn’t have the time anymore because the sun went down earlier than I tought it would.

Just before the hotel “Waldhaus” there was a path indicated on my map which didn’t exist in reality and I had to bushwhack until I stood in the garden of the hotel. Same before the small lakes with an additional sign that this would be private land and that the area would be under video  surveillance, which I think is rather not true.

Biesenthal

Berlin Day Hike: Longing For Spring In Biesenthal

Today during all my hike, I saw no human being but I heard millions of birds singing, squeaking and ranting. I think they are all – like me – waiting and knowing that spring will soon arrive.

At Wehrmühle, after I saw this magnificent and surprising piece of architecture, I met an  old lady who told me that she isn’t a fan of the new building at all. Her mother and 7 more families lived there once and she misses the times when there was plenty of live (as the new owner is only here for very little time during the year), flowers in the garden and when the waste collection service came up to her house because today she has to bring her trash can 400m to the entry of the settlement. More pictures of the house

Location: Biesenthal, Wehrmühlenweg – along Finowkanal – Lehnsee – Großer Grusegrund, Samithsee –  Fuchsberg – Reiterhof Biesenthal – Wehrmühle / Distance: 16 km / Weather: 10 °C, cloudy / Camera: Nikon D90, 35mm lens
