Length: 25 kilometres (6 hours)

Start: Bad Saarow

Finish: Wendisch Rietz

Logo/route sign: Blue circle against a white background

How to get there: From Berlin central station, take the RE1 (Cottbus) to Fürstenwalde / Spree. From here, continue by taking the EV35 to Bad Saarow (about 1 hour).

Return journey: From Wendisch Rietz take the regional train RB36 to Königs Wusterhausen. Continue from here by taking the RE2 (Wittenberg) to Berlin central station (about 1.5 hours).

Route: Bad Saarow, Kolpin, Reichenwalde, Storkow, Wendisch Rietz

Route description: The route that has been chosen for this hiking trail offers an amazing diversity of things to see, passing first through a miniature virgin forest of former clay pits, then on through a quiet landscape with fields, forests, wide waterways, past bathing areas through little villages and across Germany’s largest inland dune. This 36 metre high mountain of sand on the edge of the town of Storkow offers an impressively broad view from its peak; even today, nothing grows on the upper part of its fine, light-coloured sand, making it look like a coastal dune. Our hike ends in the state-approved resort of Wendisch Rietz. In between like Reichenwalde and Dahmsdorf, two modern villages with old centres and typical granite churches, and Storkow, which is more than 1000 years old, making it one of the oldest towns in Brandenburg. Lake Scharmützelsee, which is over ten kilometres long and has a surface area of 1200 hectares, is the largest lake in Brandenburg. Theodor Fontane nicknamed it the “Ocean of the Marches” – a very appropriate designation.

Sights:
  • Storkow: one of the oldest towns in Brandenburg; Germany’s largest inland dune
  • Reichenwalde and Dahmsdorf: old centres and granite churches

Underfoot conditions/surface: dirt hiking trails almost all the way
