Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 19/20 – Tiergartenring / Tiergarten Ring

  • by

The penultimate Stage of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege was an enjoyable loop around central Berlin. I was struggling to get out on the bike because of blood glucose issues so this route was great for trying out new ways of controlling my blood glucose. Thankfully, I could enjoy a sunny day cycling through many parks and along different waterways.

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 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!

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 7/20 – Hönower Weg / Hönow Route

  • by

Stage 7 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege started at the lovely Märchenbrunnen (Fairy Tale Fountain) and ended at the border between Berlin and Hönow. On the way, I encountered a huge bull fountain, some fantastic street art, lakes and high-rise blocks. A great mixture of all that Berlin has to offer!

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 6/20 – Lindenberger Korridor / Lindenberg Corridor

Stage 6 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege was a nice tour through some of the central parts of the former East Berlin. It was a mixture of green paths, Plattenbau apartment blocks and some stunning green areas developed on former industrial grounds. My blood glucose was pretty high during the days before this Stage so it was quite a physical struggle – but at least I got to see plenty of sheep.

Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege Stage 5/20 – Nord-Süd-Weg / North-South Route

Stage 5 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege is the North-South complement to the West-East route of Stage 1. I cycled from Buch along the lovely Pankeweg (Panke Route) right into the heart of Berlin. The way south continued through many green stretches before I reached the fields which the Berlin Wall used bisect. Here, I found a mobile phone and managed to reunite it with its owner!
