The circular trail, named after the regionally typical crop Heedekorn (buckwheat), runs between the "Niederlausitzer Landrücken" ridge and Calau Switzerland. A difference in altitude of almost 60 metres must be overcome during the hike. This is unusual for Lower Lusatia, but for guests it means a relaxed hike and full enjoyment of all the senses: from the frog concert at the pond, the silence in the vast forest, exploring the Plins villages and, of course, eating buckwheat pancakes. A must for every hiker is climbing the 38-metre-high observation tower. A total of 216 steps have to be climbed to see the Jänschwalde power station near Cottbus, the F60 visitor mine or the Lusatian Mountains on a clear day. Incidentally, 93,850 clinker bricks from the former brickworks in Buchwäldchen were stacked on top of each other for the tower.

Tip: Buckwheat plinse is available on Sundays for afternoon coffee at Gaumer's inn in Weißag and at the "Gasthaus in den Bergen" in Zwietow. During the winter months and on weekdays, please call ahead.
