The fruit-growing area southwest of Potsdam has not only been supplying the capital Berlin with fresh fruit for over 100 years, it has also been one of the most popular areas for Berlin day-trippers. The undulating landscape with its embedded lakes, numerous palaces, fruit plantations and last but not least Germany’s northernmost wine-growing area makes it a perfect area for a trip to the countryside. The hiking trail was created only a few years ago to line up these attractions like a string of pearls.

Length: 16 kilometres, 4-5 hours

Start/finish: Petzow, Krielow near Groß Kreutz

Marking: The entire route is marked with green signs featuring the apple. The signs also contain information about places of interest, restaurants, etc.

  • Train: from or to Krielow on bus 632 (Busfahrplan), from Petzow on bus 633 (Busfahrplan), this bus only goes as far as Glindow, however, so it leaves out the first part of the hike
  • Car: via the B1 to one of the two starting points; return journey by bus from Derwitz, for example
  • Bicycle: regional train from Potsdam to Groß Kreutz, for example, then walk to Petzow and from there by taxi back to the station in Werder (Havel)

Route description/points of interest and background information: 
The trail starts at its eastern end in the small hamlet of Petzow. Here the palace park and the Schinkel church (beautiful view) are worth seeing. Leading north, the trail passes the Glindower Alpen nature reserve (the mountainous area created by the mining of clay is also worth a hike) to Glindow (brickworks museum and an attractive natural outdoor pool). Here the trail turns west towards Elisabethhöhe, however, before reaching the fruit-growing area of Werder (Havel). There are several farms where you can stop off for a rest or pick fruit. Several terminal moraine hills offer far-reaching views of the landscape, which has an incomparable charm – especially when the fruit trees are in blossom. The trail passes through old cherry orchards and newly planted apple orchards, before finally reaching the village church and the Lilienthal monument in Derwitz.
