The Jewish Cemetary of Berlin-Weißensee is the biggest still existing Jewish Cemetery in Europe with around 42 hectare (1000m x 500 m) and 116.000 graves. Unlike a lot of other cemeteries in Germany I have visited, it is still active. Since the 70s it is listed as a historic monument.
We took a hike around Maxsee in Hoppegarten and as always during this time of the year, the sun went down early and we reached home when it was already dark. I love this special atmosphere and light in the forest when you think nature is sleeping because of the low temperatures, but you become aware that this is not true.
You could say it’s just some trees in a creek, but there is much more to this enchanted place north of Berlin. And it got around: On Sunday and with no possibility to see your friends other than outside, a lot of people took this beautiful and easy to reach hike in the forest near Borgsdorf.
A small tour around our home lake and again birds and mushrooms everywhere. But also those marvelous artworks made by nature on the ground. Every time the type of trees changed on our walk, the color combination on the floor changed with them.
We hiked around Großer and Kleiner Tornowsee and along Stobber creek next to Buckow last Sunday. The area is one of my favorite hiking areas around Berlin. The forest is wild and natural and there are really a lot of mushrooms this year. A wonderful autumn light accompanied us.
