South of Berlin between Jüterbog and Baruth lies the nature reserve Heidehof-Golmberg over 30km wide and covering 12.000ha. The area was used as military testing ground by soviet troops for almost 50 years after WW2 until the early 90s including shooting and bombing practices. The landscape is now a mixture of untouched semi desert heath areas and sandy pine forests with countless reminders of its military past. While its not the easiest to get to, this location rewards wanderers with absolute solitude and spectacular nature views. Join us on a very special tour through this hidden gem south of Berlin!
Easily one of the best tours in Brandenburg yet! Can not recommend enough spending a visit to this awesome nature reserve. The military ruins really add a creepy vibe to the landscape (Please pay attention to the warning signage!).
