I'll keep digging.

You've got some sweet pics there...

That would be something!. Got your PM.

Renting a bike in that area is probably not that easy. But one has to try.


I have some more pictures of the small tower. I will put them into the 3. run.

With a little luck we might be getting somewhere.

Found a little info about that cute, little tower (the Pigeon-Tower)
http://www.glambeck-schorfheide.de/glambeck2a.htm

https://goo.gl/ZboHBr

Seems that the local blueblood was given rights to possess and use pigeons (for communications), therefore the "Pigeon Tower"/ nest.
(my granddad had 20-30 pairs of homing pigeons for 30 years and was part of the pigeon holders-scene/clubs/ competitions etc)
I rather preferred them fresh out of the oven to scraping the shyte and stuff out of their nesting boxes (which then went in with the seeding potatoes)
or trying to lift a nesting bird from the eggs to replace them with the plaster variety for "population control".
Too many in the hatch and the males start fighting over nisting boxes!

Ok let's move on from Staupitz to Neuhardenberg.

But wait - there is something new which I discovered the day before. The river Spree comes out of the Spreewald heading for Berlin and there is the watergate Kossenblatt. Where we had our next break.




Nice place for relaxing



But Peter was not operating at full capacity so we had some exercise for him.

I you are hungry or just like good food, you should stop in Bad Saarow at the famous railway station and walk into the restaurant BUEHNE right beside the station.




If you think that is to noble, then go out on the terrace and have a tasty meal. It doesn't matter if you order fish or musrooms.









Finally we made it to the manor house in Steinhöfel.





...where Barbara at once took over the business.





We found the "Street of Friendship" "Straße der Freundschaft". A term that was loved in the former GDR and a good motto for us.

On the next leg it was definitely wet.








We passed a soldiers cemetry for the young russians who lost their lives far from home.





Then nice two track cruising.





... and we made it to Neuhardenberg.





Nice place to have a drink ....






Now it's time to speed up ....





..otherwise it's too late for the important pic in the evening sun.





Spent the night in Chorin with friends.





A nice place for the night. http://waldseehotel-frenz.de/
