Start: At the Oderbruch Museum, Altranft Castle, Am Anger 27, 16259 Bad Freienwalde OT Altranft.
End: Old Dyke at the Freienwalder Landgraben
Distance: About 6.4 km; Duration: Approx. 3 hours

The Alluvial Sand Cone Path offers the opportunity to immerse oneself in the natural and cultural peculiarities of the landscape around Altranft and to become acquainted with an old hut landscape. A detailed description for the 18-station walk, developed by Benjamin Hulster, is available.

The walk provides valuable information about the economic and cultural history of the village of Altranft: from the manor to the former Bergthal sheep farm and to the briquette factory once operated in Altranft. It leads to the geological educational trail that presents rocks from the Scandinavian region deposited by glacial ice thousands of years ago at the edge of Oderbruch. The path continues through the old Bergthal sheep farm to the edge of the nature reserve "Hutelandschaft Altranft-Sonnenburg". With some luck, visitors might spot open land species like the Barred Warbler, Northern Wheatear, and Woodlark, and even the Hoopoe. Passing the Altranft train station and the central corridor house on the village green, the path returns to the castle and ends at the Freienwalder Landgraben.

The Alluvial Sand Cone Path can be combined with the Oderbruch Museum's "Talk Walk."
