Approximately 2 km North of Kleiner Wukensee we found an ancient GDR military area with ruined buildings and subterranean bunkers. When we had wifi again, we found out, that the big hill we saw, was the former “Stasi-Führungsbunker” (bunker of the leaders of the ministry of State Security).
On our way home we passed through Hobrechtsfelde and made a stop at the wonderful James Biergarten. Have a perfect vast view into the fields and a craft beer!
This autumn sun! It’s out rather rarely but if it’s there it shines like gold and steel. Every year, the waterbirds who will go south gather here. There is ranting, shouting and quacking everywhere and everyone gets ready for the big adventure.
We had a short walk around beautiful wild lakes near Sternebeck including an outdoor train museum and a swim at the end.

We started and ended our hike in Buckow and had a quite relaxing day around the picturesque capital of Märkische Schweiz. I saw the Brecht-Weigel-Haus for the first time and it’s still more beautiful than on all the pictures I saw before.
