The seventh stage mostly takes you through large woodland areas away from towns, roads and tracks. This is the longest attractive hiking route along the uninhabited bank of the Dahme, which leisurely meanders through quiet woodland and meadowland. Halfway along the trail you will come across the Oberförsterei Hammer forester’s lodge, which is steeped in history and where you can take a break: After King Frederick William I acquired the Schenken dominion of Teupitz and Buchholz in 1717, the Oberförsterei Hammer forester’s lodge was set up in 1737 as part of the princely chambers of his son August William. In the 19th century, the young crown prince and later Emperor William II often came here to hunt. Towards the end of the World War II, generals and officers of the encircled Wehrmacht took up quarters in this building. Here they prepared the hopeless breakthrough plans which lead to the encirclement battle of Halbe. After the way, the building became a forester’s lodge again. It has been restored in accordance with monument preservation requirements and attracts many visitors. In the summer, it hosts the Waldkino film screenings and the traditional Waldweihnacht forest Christmas event.
