The Paul-Gerhardt path starts out as a city walk with many cultural sights along the way right by St. Nicholas’ Church where Paul Gerhardt once preached. Here you will find many monuments, historical buildings and six museums within close proximity to each other. What’s remarkable is how close you are to nature despite the route taking you through such big city. There is a lot to discover off the main roads, including very leafy areas of the city. Hikers who are interested in Paul Gerhardt should visit St. Nicholas’ Church, where this great ecclesiastical poet first preached.
Length (duration): 16 kilometres (about 4 hours) 
Route sign: Signets and hiking signs of the Paul-Gerhardt path
Route: 

This city walk is mostly about cultural sights. The first stage takes you off the main roads, mostly along quiet side streets, parks and along the banks of the Spree.

Points of interest along the route:
Nature: Treptower Park, Görlitzer Park, Kollnischer Park, paths along the banks of the Spree in the city centre and along the Plänterwald forest, Wuhlheide.
