This hike goes around one of the most beautiful lakes on the Havel near Potsdam – Lake Schwielowsee. The circular path around the lake is marked and there are several resting and refreshment points in the villages around the lake.
Distance: 15 kilometres
Start/finish: Landhaus Haveltreff, Weinbergstrasse 4, Caputh-Schwielowsee
Logo/route sign: horizontal red bar against a white background with the supplement F6
Directions: 
  • Train: RB 23 from Potsdam central station to Caputh-Schwielowsee station, then on to Ferch
  • Bus: take bus 607 from Potsdam as far as Feldstrasse

Sights: 

  • Caputh ferry Tussy
  • Ferch Bonsai Garden
  • Petzow Palace Park
  • Baumgartenbrück


This scenic walk begins on the eastern shore of the lake in Caputh and offers a magnificent view of the lake as soon as you pass the railway bridge. Walking along Schwielowseestrasse and the villas on the shore, follow the red line markings which fork right onto a forest path. At the bus stop Flottstelle you can choose to continue along the lakeside route (suitable for prams) or follow Huteeichenweg through the forest. In Ferch, the two routes meet again: here you can continue to follow the lakeside promenade towards Petzow. At the Löcknitz you can follow a forest path again by turning right across the road, or else continue along the path that is also used as a cycle path. Petzow landscape park with its washhouse is a lovely place for a rest. Behind Petzow Palace, continue along the lake until you reach Baumgartenbrücke (bridge), passing along the road alongside Lake Schwielowsee, and then cross the River Havel with its wonderful views. Immediately after crossing the bridge, turn right, walk to the left at the bottom of the bridge and follow the little used road beyond the restaurant. Turn right at the next crossing. You can get back to the starting point via Caputh-Geltow railway station and the cable ferry.
