Route description: Now the hiking trail takes you back to familiar territory, but there are still a few more interesting things to see. At the start of today’s stage you can choose whether to hike along forest paths, east of Caputh castle or along the water, the River Havel. On your way to Caputh you reach the last lakes of the 66-Lakes Hiking Trail: Lake kleiner Seddiner See, Lake Karinchensee, The Lienewitzseen lakes, Lake Caputher See and as well as Lake Templiner See. Starting in Caputh, there is an unmarked path that takes you back to the marked hiking trail via Lake Petzinsee. The official trail also takes you to Lake Templiner See, but it also leads to a great viewpoint near Pirschheide. The viewpoint, one of the most beautiful of the whole tour, affords great views across the water. You have now returned to just outside Potsdam. Unfortunately, that’s almost the end of the 66-Lakes Hiking Trail. On your way back to your starting point, the Brandenburg Gate, you will pass a few more sights of Potsdam
