Hiking in the nature park Hoher Fläming

Hiking alone in the Hoher Fläming Nature Park is good. The flat landscapes between Bad Belzig and Wiesenburg in Brandenburg entice you to go hiking in the Hoher Fläming Nature Park. hiking trailsthat we like run through flat terrain. You can't go uphill. We don't like crowds either. We like hiking alone. Hiking in Fläming is well suited for this. The expanses of the Fläming are just right for us. They are flat and have no steep slopes. That's why a hike through the Hohe Fläming is also something for slow hikers like us. In addition, the landscapes of the Fläming had already attracted us on our trips through Brandenburg in recent years. This time we wanted to explore it on foot.

However, when I investigate what is meant by Fläming, I have to laugh. Wikipedia describes it as the Ice Age ridge. On our hike on the art hiking trail from Wiesenburg nothing of higher landforms can be discovered. On the contrary: wide and flat landscapes await us. The water tower in Wiesenburg is at a height of 188,3 meters above sea level. NN. Since we are at home in Bavaria, it is not even a hill in our opinion. But all the better! They are exactly that Walkingthat we like to hike on. The Fläming owes its existence to the flow movements of the ice surface, which flowed back and forth from Scandinavia during the Ice Age. This left the sediments that make up the Fläming today.

Wiesenburg at the Hoher Fläming Nature Park

If you leave the Schlosspark Wiesenburg in the direction of the village, you can already see signs in the park that point to the way to Bad Belzig. There we get directly to the art hiking trail that connects Wiesenburg with Bad Belzig. There are even several routes on the art hiking trail. It's your choice. The north route covers 20 km, the south route 17 km, the west route 23 km and the east route 20 km. As a slow hiker, this distance would have been too much for us. But the 16 km route of the southern route from Wiesenburg to Bad Belzig is too long for us. We therefore restrict our hike through the Fläming to a route for which we take a lot of time. Therefore, our hike becomes a real one Enjoyment tour. This is how we enjoy hiking in Fläming.

Hiking in the Fläming

That was exactly the right thing for us. So we can enjoy the wide landscapes of the Fläming extensively. But not only the Fläming is worth seeing. Wiesenburg itself also offers surprises for us before we leave the place. Hidden under trees we discover the village pond, in the water of which the church of the village is reflected. A wooden walkway provides access to the pond. Both of them let us pull out our cameras.

In Wiesenburg you also do something for your seniors. At the end of the village there is a summer meeting for pensioners, which is guarded by a patron saint. Immediately behind it, the tarred road bends to the right, which we do not follow any further. We continue on a dirt road to which a signpost points us to Bad Belzig.

Walking alone from Wiesenburg to Bad Belzig

From then on, we have the trail almost to ourselves. We only meet a family once. The rest of the time we enjoy the vastness and the silence of this landscape. Hiking alone is a pleasure on this route. Originally we had planned a long way. Because the autumn sun warms our backs so beautifully and opens wonderful views of the Fläming, we take our time. Instead, we pull out our cameras and record our impressions in detail. On a bench under a hazelnut bush we enjoy the views of Wiesenburg and the vastness of the Hoher Fläming nature park.

Petar collects whole bags full of walnuts, which he discovers under an old tree. These we crack with relish on a bench along the way and let us taste it. Have you ever eaten fresh walnuts? You can not get enough of that. And there is hardly a better lunch for the Fläming. For this we have the opportunity to observe a group of lively horses. These seem to taste the green of the pasture as well as our nuts.

Art on the art hiking trail in the Hoher Fläming Nature Park

To get an impression of the art trail, we go to the first work of art on the route. A Swiss artist has put together a collection of cow udders here. They look funny, the white and black painted acrylic balls against the backdrop of Wiesenburg. If you continue on the trail, you will find other works of art. Artists from Germany and Flanders have installed 28 works of art along the trail. Some of them refer to the Fleming's settlement by the Flemish about 850 years ago.

We continue on our way for a while, but when we discover Halden in the distance, which block the view of the vastness of the Fläming, we decide to turn back. We parked our car in front of Schloss Wiesenburg so that we don't want to walk the entire art trail. Instead we take a stroll through the village before heading back towards it Bad Belzig do. Im waiting there Castle Café Bad Belzig a cup of hot chocolate on us. You shouldn't miss it. Together with a piece of chocolate cake, it is the perfect end to a pleasure hike in Fläming.

10 thoughts too "Hiking in the nature park Hoher Fläming"

  1. Hehe, although I do not like to wander sometimes, I found the post more than great, especially the photo with the cow udder made me smile, thanks for that :-)

    1. Hello Agnes,

      we are not “hard core hikers” ourselves, rather walkers who take it easy. The art trail is very suitable for this. You don't have to go the whole round, you just have to choose part of it. In any case, it was a lot of fun for us. And by taking our time and concentrating on a small part, we have experienced the region much more intensely.

      Best regards,

  2. Nice idea, if it should not go so high. I especially like the cow udders. I find art on the way as a pleasure hiker in general a very nice idea.

    1. I found the cow udders really funny. Especially in the flat landscape, they are a welcome eye-catcher.

  3. If I read it that way, maybe I should have attached a few more days to my trip to Brandenburg.
    It's clear that this region has much more to offer than you think.

    Best regards,

    1. I can only agree with that, Katja. We have been to Brandenburg several times and have always been surprised by what we discovered there. This is a real treasure trove of beautiful destinations.

      Best regards,

    1. So we always come back to the region. Meanwhile, we try to use every visit to Berlin for exploring the area.

      Best regards,
