The Fläming - Highlights
The Fläming is an ice-age formed mountain range and at the same time a historically grown landscape. It stretches from the Schorfheide in Brandenburg, through Saxony-Anhalt, to Halle (Saale) in Saxony-Anhalt. This region has been shaped by man for centuries and offers a wealth of natural beauty as well as cultural heritage.
There is a lot to discover. We have selected the best sights and cycling and hiking destinations for you:
Berlin Wall Trail
The trail begins at Checkpoint Charlie, where American and Soviet tanks faced off in 1961. It then winds through former East German territory, including the infamous Bornholmer Bridge checkpoint, which was one of the first places where people could walk from East to West without being shot on sight. Along this section you will also find many memorials and monuments commemorating those who died trying to escape behind the so-called "Iron Curtain"

The airport runway starts just south of here, so it's an ideal place to watch planes take off or land. There are also many other activities in the area, such as fishing and hiking trails, which make for great day trips.
At the Teltow Canal/Machnower Lake
The canal is a popular destination for hikers and cyclists. It is also used by boaters, anglers and fishermen. It is also an important link between Berlin's waterways and those of the surrounding area.
