This beautiful spring weekend brought us to the good old Spreewald about an hour south-east of Berlin. This UNESCO designated biosphere reserve is famous for its network of creeks and channels, dense forest and vast marshlands – and pickles. Starting at the village of Lübbenau this weeks route brought us through forest and lots of open land on the way to the similar named destination Lübben. Join us on a moist hike through the northern Spreewald!

Everything is getting greener and greener.

What a view.
After a few kilometers the forest opens up to more open landscapes. And more rain.
Roadside attraction.
One of Brandenburg’s stunning views.
Rain stopped, its clearing up!
A spectacular sunny goodbye for today.

The Spreewald is a classic hiking destination and easy to reach by train. Some areas are definitely quite touristy, but we found plenty of solitude. Great tour!
