Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 16/20 – Humboldt Spur / Humboldt Trail

Stage 16 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege took me through some lovely northern districts of Berlin. This route was inspired by the wanderings of the Humboldt brothers (Alexander and Wilhelm). I was lucky enough to cycle this route when the first blossoms were at their peak. I also managed to enjoy some sheep, cows, boar and deer along the way too.

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 14/20 – Wuhletalweg / Wuhle Valley Route

Stage 14 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege followed the river Wuhle from the north east of Berlin towards the river Spree in Köpenick. This is the final Stage of this Grand Tour in 2021 and it was fantastic! Full of amazing views from “mountains” and autumnal colours everywhere. This long planned ride was really worth the wait.

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 13/20 – Barnimer Dörferweg / Barnim Villages Route

A sunny but chilly autumn day was a great chance to cycle through the Barnim Villages for Stage 13 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege. I cycled from the Tegeler See towards the east of Berlin through some amazing landscapes – many of which are nature reserves too. Despite some blood glucose troubles at the end, this was an amazing ride and I really loved the autumn colours just popping everywhere.

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 11/20 – Wannseeweg / Wannsee Route

The eleventh Grüner Hauptweg was a stunning ride where I visited most of the lakes making up the Grunewaldseenkette (Grunewald Lake Chain). These lakes are surrounded by villas, lush forests and are very popular with swimmers, hikers and cyclists. A truly magnificent ride!

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 9/20 – Dahmeweg / Dahme Route

  • by

Stage 9 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege followed the river Dahme from Köpenick towards Schmöckwitz and its border with Wernsdorf in Brandenburg. I visited the historic old town and palace in Köpenick before cycling along the Dahme – easily one of my favourite parts of Berlin. Green and blue as far as the eye can see! Highly recommended.

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 8/20 – Kaulsdorfer Weg / Kaulsdorf Route

  • by

A hot summer’s day was a great opportunity for the eighth Stage of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege. This route led me through nature reserves and along small lakes in the east of Berlin. All the greenery was a nice touch to these primarily residential districts. A great ride and even my blood glucose was relatively well-behaved!
