The Wurzelberg hiking trail leads through the wilderness area of the Brandenburg Natural Landscapes Foundation. Follow the Wurzelberg hiking trail through pine forests straight into a terrain that currently irritates and fascinates at the same time with its strange steppe or desert character. Everything is changing here, and an exciting development is taking place. From August to October the heath can bloom here. Let your gaze wander and your soul dangle. The "Wilderness Thought Walk" provides some inspiration with quotes from writers and philosophers. From the elevation of the Wurzelberg you have a fascinating view of a large inland dune as a relic of the last ice age and of the wilderness development areas. During a leisurely picnic at the rest area, you can enjoy the view and identify your own location on the overview relief. The trail is 7.4 km long in total or can be shortened to a 5.5 km hike with a small loop at the dune.
