The 55-kilometre Stork Hiking Trail leads around Lake Beetzsee. There is a stork nest in each of the idyllic villages, where signs indicate breeding success. The starting point of the hike is the medieval city of Brandenburg an der Havel with its impressive 12th century cathedral and imposing churches. You soon reach Lake Beetzsee. Near Lünow it is possible to take a shortcut directly to Ketzür. Not far from Päwesin you can walk through the Bagower Bruch nature reserve. The Bockwindmühle (windmill) in Ketzür and the enormous lime tree in Brielow are also worth a visit. In addition to the stork nests and the village churches, this varied hiking trail offers a range of beautiful vantage points and scenic features. In almost every village you will find inviting accommodation and restaurants.
