6%: could have a spicy beer that refreshes the throat after a strenuous tour. Until then, however, there are still 6% of the way ahead of us - just.
Current status July 27th: still 0.9%!The response from the community to our hiking event is, to be honest, stunning - we did not expect so much interest and encouragement. Many a word of thanks has already been written. I would like to point out once again that it is worth looking through the tours in the Collection, because there are plenty of suggestions for creative, curious, open-minded hiking and being on the move. Some really made the proverbial a lot of fun out of it.Steff picked the first blueberries in the fog on Rennweg (komoot.de/tour/422299731) and Rolf was able to complete the last stage in the Allgäu Alps because of. Mastering bad weather only at the second attempt, but then terrific (komoot.de/tour/429067622). These are the first and last of 75 stages that are now available in one piece or will be completed in the next few days. In between there are a lot of kilometers and unforgettable hiking moments that are connected to each other, mostly virtual but readable on the map, sometimes with personal connections.There is now almost a week for the lookup and we still have 1 open stage. That is 30 km of the planned 3,420 km, i.e. 0.9% of the distance - it can't be that wild! So here is the offer of our "Resterampe" or actually very special tours for committed walkers at a glance, because some of them really have it all:Schleswig-Holstein:

... a very short-term hike today, easily accessible by train, which I quickly planned for the late morning after I wanted to defy the announced thunderstorms.It was a combination of just under half a lap around the beautiful Beetzer See, a piece of the large, contiguous forest area of the Rüthnicker Heide and a longer, in the region typical 'Luchweg section' on hard ground through the swamp meadows and along water ditches.Even if the second half was clearly too monotonous for my taste and hardly anything to be seen of the moat due to heavy reed growth, I definitely found the tour worthwhile in its shape, as the area doesn't offer many options otherwise.Difficult today the weather situation: already at the start the oppressive humidity was almost unbearable, several times during the tour I thought: 'OK, now the thunderstorm is about to start!'. Every time the sun came through and it stayed free of rain until the end, only I was so completely sweaty as never before after a hike. As soon as I was on the train, the thunderstorms actually started with heavy rain and at least I had the feeling that I had done everything right with regard to the weather.Under such conditions, however, I would definitely cancel a group tour at short notice in advance.------------Info and tour description:This tour starts at the Beetz-Sommerfeld train station, the paved avenue leads to the country road, after which the forest path leads to the south-western end of the Beetzer See. Follow the beautiful northern riverside path for a good kilometer, then turn over a field into the large, contiguous forest area of the Rüthnicker Heide. In a semicircular arc it goes on mostly wide, partly asphalt or concrete paths around a former military area of the NVA border troops and after crossing the road again through the small village of Ludwigsaue.After a short, very sandy dirt road section, it's a good four kilometers on concrete slab paths through the marsh meadows and along the Neukammer Luchgraben. It is followed by a four-kilometer section on a lonely, winding, narrow asphalt road all the way to Herzberg. The main road is bypassed around the village on a field path, then the path finally leads over the Bahnhofstraße to the Herzberg / Mark train station, where this tour ends.

... on the way back from my second 'MitWandern' relay stage by train to Berlin I had to change trains in Schwerin and had one and a half hours, so I finally got a little 'tour appetizer' in this wonderful city.I found the castle simply wonderful, despite the very heavy cloud cover there were great views of the castle island from all sides. The city seemed very active and lively to me, certainly also due to the number of tourists.Of course, the time available was far too short to 'take in' all the sights, I'll definitely be back and then I will go on a longer culture and nature hike there.For decades I had always associated Schwerin with the 'Police Call 110', especially the iconic episodes of the mid-1990s with Kurt Böwe and Uwe Steimle as a brilliant team of investigators.---------------Info and tour description:This little tour starts at Schwerin-Mitte train station, down the Lobedanzgang down to the Lyceum, then on Goethestrasse and Schloßstrasse past the State Chancellery towards the castle. Now the shore of the Burgsee is followed and half of it is circled on the promenade to the floating meadow. The path continues through the castle garden and around the outside of the castle island back to the 'mainland' on Werderstrasse.The promenade around the Marstall is followed with a view of the Innensee, then it goes over a parking lot to Grünen Strasse, then on to Burgstrasse and Puschkinstrasse to the market square. The path leads around the cathedral to the Pfaffenteich and a piece of the bank along Alexandrinenstrasse, before turning off to Schwerin Central Station, where this tour ends.

... today I contributed my second relay stage for 'MitWandern 2021' with mostly heavy cloud cover, again it went to Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, but this time much further west to the Ludwigslust-Parchim district.It was already clear to me in advance that this would not be a 'hiking treat', the template had already been optimized as well as possible. So it turned out to be a tour that strongly reminded me of my local Camino de Santiago projects in the last two years, I 'shuffled' my way from village to village, mostly on narrow country roads with some traffic.The only highlights besides the partly interesting villages today were the peat waters about halfway and the round around the Crivitzer See at the very end. With my subsequent little tour through Schwerin (komoot.de/tour/429469736) I was able to reward myself again, so that at the end of a successful day of hiking there is an area that is difficult and time-consuming to reach for me, which maybe is not necessarily a 'hiking paradise'.-------------Info and tour description:This stage starts at the bus stop in Domsühl, first you go along the village green on the main road to the western end of the village, then you follow the dirt road right next to the train tracks. After one kilometer, the branch turns off at the next level crossing, and for the next six kilometers the path leads over narrow country roads with a few changes in direction, crossing the small villages of Schlieven and Friedrichsruhe. This is followed by a composite slab path through a peat water area before it goes uphill to the village of Ruthebeck.The only forest section of the tour follows on forest roads, after which the somewhat larger town of Zapel is reached and is also crossed. A dirt road leads to Crivitz, at the entrance to the village the railway line is crossed and followed the Zapeler Weg, then the district road to the small town center. After circling the town church, turn off to the shores of Lake Crivitz, which is almost completely circled for two kilometers on a beautiful promenade.Finally, the Freiheitsallee with its villas is followed, then the Crivitz train station is reached via the Molkereistraße, where this stage ends.

Dear fellow hikers,You are great! The last weekend showed how beautiful our country can be and how great the interest is in such an XXL hike through the whole country. Thank you all for your sometimes multiple hikes for this relay hike. More than 2,700 km have already come together.Each of you has made your very own (!) Contribution. One has covered a lot of kilometers, the other swam through a lake or the stage number was simply integrated into the recording.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!At this point I would like to thank you again

Half a year ago, Frank and I were of the opinion that we couldn't manage such an action and that komoot had to actively support / take action ourselves. Now we have together proven the opposite.Unfortunately, even before the storm hit, it was already foreseeable that we would not be able to hike all 159 stages in 3 days. This is not least due to the fact that the advertising for this event only ran through us as organizers (and of course through you!). But well, what we did on our own is great.---komoot.de/collection/1243055/-mitwandern-2021-an-3-tagen-gemeinsam-durch-deutschland---komoot.de/invite-tour/426933856?code=dsk5qo-PxJx0znLEOAlHiHj5najX_eTWPHzCQ7jWg6XgjZQSoQ

With this tour I would like to personally thank all participants of the big Germany season 'MitWandern 2021', and not only to 'my' hiking community in the northeast, but to all fellow hikers across the country.It was simply moving for us organizers to sit in front of the computer or smartphone at the weekend and watch how the tours we planned were actually 'brought to life' and completed by you. Thanks a lot for this!Once again, there was a wide range of individual presentations, many stages with first-class and professional photos, many stages with wonderful descriptions of very different characteristics and with extremely entertaining captions as well as ... the metaphysical stage of jogging bread that cannot be put into words: https : //komoot.de/tour/423994918 (you can even see the 'e043' stamped in the meadow in the overview of the collection!)I would particularly like to highlight the stage from Lucy, which did not hike around the lake but simply swam in a direct line to the other bank: komoot.de/tour/423931663Here is the joint collection:
komoot.de/collection/1243055/-mitwandern-2021-an-3-tagen-gemeinsam-durch-deutschlandSince there was nothing to win apart from strengthening the community idea, I would like to offer a group hike for all relay participants at the end of August in the old tradition.----------You have probably noticed that this time we received almost no official support from komoot. This is certainly due to both the personnel situation and the change in focus at komoot. We / I would have been able to advertise a smaller event regionally without any problems, but for the Germany-wide organization we would have needed the 'big' komoot promotional channels, which we couldn't.So it happens that we still have a good 30 stages that have not yet been hiked. For some, this is actually due to the flood, so we had already decided to make it possible to catch up by the end of July. I would like to encourage those of you who are still in the mood for a 'lookup' or who have so far missed out for various reasons to strike again. Myself, as well as some of the organizers, will also contribute an additional stage to those already hiked.The currently only open stage is this:E005 "MitWandern 2021": Husum - Jübek (komoot.de/tour/375990023)You can find the cleaned up doodle lists for registration here:

... I was on a 'complementary tour' today, just like a week ago, from Trebnitz on the edge of Märkische Schweiz, but this time in the opposite direction, to Müncheberg.I was particularly interested in creating the most attractive possible connection to the beautiful lakes in the nature park to the south, as I did not yet know the paths in the first part. I especially liked the field and meadow paths with wide views of the slightly undulating landscape, but today there were still some moderately overgrown sections to master up to the Großer Klobichsee.The second part, already well known to me, led away from the popular nature park route very nicely through the woods and past various lake shores. I concluded the hike with a dangling to the Kesselsee and what I believe to be the best access to the Müncheberg train station along the paddocks at the Galgenberghof.Certainly a recommended route for those who are looking for other suitable tours on the edge of the Märkische Schweiz nature park.------------Info and tour description:This tour starts at the train station in Trebnitz, first it goes west out of the village, then the slightly overgrown dirt road on the former mine railway embankment is used for two kilometers, with beautiful views of the slightly undulating landscape. After a hairpin bend, the Jahnsfelder Weg, which presents itself as a beautiful tree-lined avenue, is followed slightly downhill to Obersdorf.The place is crossed in a westerly direction, then it goes on the dirt road in the direction of the forest and there on slightly overgrown paths in the direction of Münchehofe. At the entrance of the village, however, you branch off immediately and circle the large camping park, then the path leads above the Großer Klobichsee to the bathing area and through a marshy forest to the end of the lake. A beautiful, natural forest section follows, then it goes on broader forest roads in a curve to the eastern settlement areas of Waldsieversdorf.Here in Dahmsdorfer Straße you turn down to the Großer Däbersee and follow the very beautiful John-Heartfield-Steig to the southern end of the lake, after crossing the bridge you continue on equally beautiful bank paths around the Kleiner Däbersee and a little along the Papillensee . This is followed by a section of forest over to the Kesselsee, which is circled almost halfway, then goes through the forest to the horse paddocks on the Galgenberg and along them down to the railway path. After crossing the railway line, the destination is finally reached at Müncheberg station.

... it was already today, my own stage of the Germany season 'MitWandern 2021', mainly through the Müritz National Park in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.Since I hiked the route in a very similar way a good three years ago within my Havel project, I had optimized it a little today in the first part and greatly shortened it in the second part.Today I really liked the first twenty kilometers to Zwenzow, they were varied and the rhythm of the forest and lake shore sections was perfect. For the last six kilometers, I almost exclusively use the country road, which is not so little traveled, as the only alternative would have been the bike path, which is much quieter but would not have offered any further attractions in terms of landscape.Already after an hour I was completely sweaty in the dense mixed forest, which was still very damp from the nocturnal rain, through which clouds of mist were still moving in the morning. The atmosphere and the scent paired with the light in the morning were sensational.In the end, I was very satisfied with my choice of route and the way the variant was worked out; some tours just can't maintain their quality level from start to finish. The only drawback today: despite frequent tempo adjustments, I was way too fast, the planned 'precision landing' didn't quite work out and I wanted to leave Silvia exclusively for her subsequent stage on the possible tour of the city through the worth seeing Wesenberg ;-)My thanks go to the co-organizers of the event, especially of course to Jan Verbüugeln, whose idea was the Germany season.
I am very excited about the other stages and will definitely comment on all of them in the Northeast myself.-----------Info and tour description:This stage starts at the train station in Kratzeburg, after crossing under the track, the embankment is followed on a dirt road to the crossing of the still rivulet-like Havel, then the path is followed to the public northern bathing area at Käbelicksee. Then it goes on the gravel road along the shore to the large private nature campsite and through this (please briefly inform the reception that you are hiking through as a stranger!).At the end of the campsite, the very beautiful marked forest path is followed near the shore of the lake, later branching off to the main path, which leads to the Langhagen forest settlement as a sand and gravel road. After a detour to the Langhäger See, the piste is followed, where a 'shortcut' over a meadow path is possible in the meantime, which brings a little variety and also saves distance. At the exit of the forest you meet a side road that you follow into Blankenförde, along the way you can see the beautiful little calf lake.The path leads through a floodplain valley from there in the direction of the Jäthensee, then the (Stein-) Havel, which is already somewhat wider here, is met again and crossed. This is followed by a very beautiful stretch of shore along the Jamelsee, before a slightly overgrown meadow path leads around the Red Lake at some distance. On a longer section of the forest, the path then leads back through the lush green, at a distance from the core zone of the national park, along the banks of the Krummen See and around the southern tip, before you come across a very beautiful bathing area in the great mixed forest on the south-eastern bank.Shortly afterwards you reach Zwenzow and bypass it in the forest, then the bike path is used to the Useriner Mühle, where the Havel is crossed again. After a visit to the large bathing beach on the Useriner See, there are now almost only country roads as far as Wesenberg. Pass the Buchenhorst settlement to the village of Klein Quassow and through it, then follow the Quassower Weg to the Wesenberg settlement on the hillside. Finally, it goes on the gravel road parallel to the tracks to the level crossing on Zwenzower Weg and on the other side of the rails to the Wesenberg train station, where the stage ends.
