Hike: Christmas at Tegeler Fließ

Tegeler Fließ is the name of the river at the former GDR Border. Despite it raining on me for must of the trip, this hike spanned an impressive landscape.

The moors were speckled with informational signs on plants, birds, and other wildlife. When I have more time, and it’s not constantly raining on me, it would be a great place to revisit.

I was pleasantly surprised by how many other people were also hiking, in the rain, on a holiday. I seem to fit in well with the German tradition of afternoon walks in nature. ‘Hike’ often feels like too strong a word for what is usually extended, flat walks. Here the German verb is particularly apropos: wandern.
