Not even ten minutes after leaving Spandau station by bus you will end up in a completely different world. This forest has swampy parts, that make this three hour walk extremely varied.
But the history is the most impressive part of this tour. The border between east and west ran right through the forest, and you are reminded of that in every corner. Especially the memorial shields that tell the stories of those who got killed during their attempts to flee the DDR leave no visitor untouched.
