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

The Garden In June And Two Crazy Dogs

Coco came to visit Pavlov or – you can also say – Eva and Olli came to visit us we had coffee and the two dogs played for hours, slept, played again and killed my bergenia field. Coco is a Great Dane and will soon be much bigger than Pavlov.

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.

Burn The Virus II

From all the countries and landscapes they came. Druids, magicians, inventors, artists, scientists and clairvoyants. They came with their burden in form of a virus and they came to take its power away. To ban it from the surface of Mother Earth. Like last year, only better.


After the burning of the viruses, a portal in heaven opened and a red rainbow appeared. Unfortunately we – the humans – are not yet ready to to read the signs.

And than darkness and rain came and the ceremony began …

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: 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: 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.

Berlin Day Hike: Tour Around The Lakes In Waldsieversdorf

We had a slow and grey Sunday and the sun hid behind clouds again. We all hope spring will manifest soon with great lights and warm sunrays. Pavlov saw a duck for the first time and as he is a “Duck Tolling Retriever” I imagined noticing some interest. But he is also interested in crows in the park 🙂
