In the Dahme-Heideseen nature park

At the southern end of the Scharmützelsee begins a wonderful, but rarely traveled chain of lakes. The Kleiner and Großer Glubigsee and the Springsee, which are lonely even in summer and are closed to motorboat traffic, offer you pure relaxation and a unique experience of nature. This chain of Glubigseenkette with a total of 5 lakes arose from a glacial meltwater channel. The Scharmützelsee, also called Märkisches Meer, is also part of the water chain and is the starting point of your late riser paddling tour in the Dahme-Heideseen nature park.






 







Start in Wendisch Rietz

So that your legs have something to do, you start with a short, half-hour hike. After the regional train has brought you to Wendisch Rietz, you walk through the holiday resort, which is especially popular with families, to the promenade on the lake. Surf & Fun has the right boats and you set sail. The first section takes you to the Scharmützelsee and to the southernmost end, where you follow the passage to the Glubigsee. The automated lock is currently not working, but a short transfer over a few steps and a few meters of meadow is possible.






 







Through the enchanted Glubig-Melang-Fließ

The connecting channels between the lakes are particularly fun. You will immediately be greeted by the beautiful water lilies, which you will see in impressive numbers again and again on your tour. Stop for a moment and look carefully: reed beetles and various types of dragonflies like to take a break on the water lilies, which especially in June and July emerge to their peak form. An impressive picture. Gray herons stand motionless on the bank, with luck you will see a marsh harrier in the trees. Swimming grass snakes can also be seen. Lower down there are small perch, pike lurking in the weed, and there are crabs near the shore, a sign of the good water quality.

The Großer Glubigsee, now lying in front of you, is surrounded by pine and lukewarm forests, here and there by a few dachas and jetties. Everything is absolutely calm, no motorboat, no waves, except from the gently blowing wind, which ruffles the water here and there.





 






Spring lake

Further through the river you arrive at the particularly clear Springsee. The local divers love the good underwater visibility. The lake is fed by two sources, whose tributaries can be found on the east bank. The exit points are official natural monuments that you can also visit.

On the secretive and hilly west bank of the Springsee, on the other hand, forest lovers can see special North American tree species that were planted for testing purposes in the 1960s. In the past, loneliness was also welcome for other purposes: in GDR times there was a secret object of the GDR State Security on this side of the lake, where members of terrorist groups received military training. Today it is a restricted area of ​​the Bundeswehr. For you, on the other hand, you can take a break at the nature campsite on the south bank and halfway there. A snack and a nice bathing area for landing invite you to stop over.





 






Greetings from Scandinavia

Back at the lock, we recommend that you make a short stop at the small Glubigsee. The idyllic Fischaus is located at the tip of a small peninsula. You can moor directly at the thatched house and try great fish dishes on the terrace or take a fish sandwich to hand. If you still have time, you can take a detour to the port area of ​​Wendisch Rietz after repositioning. The many red wooden huts on the bank are reminiscent of a maritime, Scandinavian atmosphere. Or you paddle a few hundred meters north on the west bank and pay a visit to the Storkower fish cooperative on the Schwarzhorn beach. In the farm shop with smokehouse, there are regional fish from the Brandenburg Sea.
