A park for a whole day - the Wuhletalweg

A walk for sports fans, history lovers and nature lovers

The 16 km long hiking trail leads along the Wuhle from Ahrensfelde to the mouth of the Wuhle into the Spree. The cozy, clear river with its small fishes lies in the Wuhletal, a long stretched leisure and nature park between two slopes. Since its re-naturalization in 2008, the Wuhletal has once again become a pure place of relaxation. It is the longest green area in Berlin and lies almost completely in the district of Marzahn-Hellersdorf.

When the roads began to be redrawn in the 1980s and the excavators for the housing construction of the Hellersdorf housing estate moved in, care was taken to ensure that the houses were only built beyond the meadows and meadows. Today, nature thanks us with more than 260 species, some of which are rare ferns and flowering plants. 23 protected species of animals are also at home here, including the European hare. But that's not all: more than two thirds of all bird species observed in Berlin are native to the Wuhle. The trail is therefore popular with sports fans and nature lovers alike.

But the Wuhletalweg is also a journey through Berlin's varied history. There are meadows from the Stone Age, a village from the Middle Ages, a hospital and a small castle from the 19th century and typical GDR panel buildings from the 1970/80s. The most beautiful time travel through the East of Berlin in autumn is when the trees on the Kienberg slowly change colour, when the Indian Summer begins in the gardens of the world and the fog rises from the butterfly meadows. The small pond chains and the old tree population stand in contrast to the surrounding prefabricated housing estates.

Halfway there is a modern environmental education centre at Lake Kienberg. Events for young and old take place here regularly. The 102-metre-high Kienberg near the Kienberg - Gardens of the World underground station offers the best view of Berlin's typical contrasting landscape. Not far away is the park "Gardens of the World", which is worth seeing and requires admission. The Wuhletal hiking trail runs exactly between the district districts of Marzahn and Hellersdorf and can be easily reached by public transport from the Ahrensfelde, Wuhletal and Köpenick S-Bahn stations.
