Marquardt to Brieselang – Stage 2

I’m writing this after doing the Brieselang to Hennigsdorf trail, so I have a little more perspective now. Just didn’t get around to writing about our 2nd hike on the 66 Lakes Trail until now for personal and work time constraints.

One early memory of the trail is actually a abandoned looking train station and some farm lands. However, I ended up thinking about this hike as the bridges trail as most of it follows along a canal, and also alongside a highway, so there are many bridges to walk by. Also, it was a bit unglamorous for some highway stretches, but the bridges and peaceful canal were redeeming. It was also the first hike were we started to actually see the 66 Lakes Trail markers with more official looking national park style signs, which refer to it as “66 Seen – Rund um Berlin”. It’s worth noting that in a couple places the Wander Kompass trail didn’t keep up with the markers and we felt lost, but in the end the bridges and other landmarks helped us to stay on course.

At the end of the trail, we arrived at Brieselang which is a larger then Marquandt, but has a depressed feel to it. There was a Gasthaus in the middle of Brieselang, which is worth noting, as I think you could spend the night for multi-day hikers, and also it you wanted, at the Gasthaus, or at a Beer Garden next to the Brieselang Hauptbahnhof, you could plan to eat and have a drink before hoping the train.
