Route description: Rheinsberg is the starting point of this circular tour. First, the route of the day tour leads along the main route of the FONTANE.RAD route via Zippelsförde with its large fish farm. From here, the day tour branches off in the direction of Lindow (Mark) - a small town closely associated with the history of its monastery: Theodor Fontane took it as the model for the "Wutz Monastery" in his novel "Der Stechlin". Today it is only preserved as a ruin in an impressive park ensemble, but stories and legends continue to entwine around the monastery: for example, a nun sculpture in Lake Wutz recalls the tragic love story that is said to have taken place between the beautiful nun and the poor peasant boy. The "Garden of the Book" on the Abbey grounds is the first Jewish-Christian-Muslim teaching and display garden in Germany and shows plant species from the Tanakh, Bible and Koran.

The tour continues to Köpernitz, where the urbane Countess La Roche-Aymon resided in Fontane's time. Today the estate is used as a public meeting place and cultural centre. The estate park consists of a herb, flower and fruit garden and is based on Chinese Feng Shui teachings.

The round tour then leads back to the starting point in Rheinsberg. The former residential town of Rheinsberg owes its fame above all to the rococo palace with its characteristic round towers, where the Prussian King Frederick II resided during his time as Crown Prince. Also worth seeing is the extensive palace park by the lake with its statues, arrangements of flower beds and hedges, where writers such as Kurt Tucholsky and Theodor Fontane used to stroll.

Alternatively, the tour can also be started from Lindow (Mark).
