One highlight of this winter walk is undoubtedly the route, which has been devised using expert local knowledge.
Everyone knows the Berlin TV tower, but few know where it was close to being built. The already built during the construction freeze pedestal is still used elsewhere and is in very scenic surroundings, full of landmarks and monuments.
This experience will take you to the largest, greenest and most watery district of the city, including the biggest lake and the highest natural elevation of Berlin. It includes the underpass of the River Spree through the only passable pedestrian tunnel, the crossing of its tributary Dahme with a solar ferry (the entire discovery is virtually emission-free) and probably the most beautiful view of Berlin. It allows to explore Berlin history AND nature at the same time!
This walk spans the last Ice Age through Prussia, the founding of Greater Berlin in 1920, WW II and the ruin of GDR 30 years ago to the present day. We will pass several historical suburbs, buildings and monuments of different epochs, including the lovely artist and writer village Friedrichshagen founded in 1753 and the regatta track in Grünau, scene of the Nazi 1936 Olympic rowing competitions, just to name two examples.
As a farewell present, each participant will receive an original funny hand-drawn Berlin postcard set.
