Spring is finally here and around Berlin the temperatures are rising. For this weeks hike we chose a visit to Schönower Heide – a hather area at the north side of Berlin’s city limits. This landscape was used for the main part of the last 100 years as military practice area by German and later Soviet military forces which kept it in its current mostly treeless state. Nowadays the area is a designated nature reserve populated by wild horses. Pack your boots and jump with us over some creeks!

It was a very foggy morning in Berlin, but the sun was already coming out.
Perfect weather for a trip through nature.
Respect the bull!
Very varied landscape.
Lots of creeks.
Spring is here!
Wild horses.
Some areas at Schönower Heide are still dangerous because of leftover ammunition.
View over the Heide.
Time for a nap in the sun.
