Berlin or Dust - I went for the Dust!
 
I'm living 230 km west of Berlin. So it's just a 2.5 hour drive on the motorway and I would be in Berlin "Brandenburger Tor".

But if you love the dust it is better to pass Berlin and head for the old unpaved tracks east of Berlin.

We did all this already some years ago. But it's never to late to write everything down in a thread.
I was expecting my friends from Austria. They are strong believers of the dirt. What else can you expect from KTM drivers?

Their second burning desire was to have a run to see the Baltic sea. So I offered them a tour off the beaten track from south of Berlin to Usedom - the prettiest German island in the Baltic.
To show you this interesting area in Germany I put two scouting tours and the real tour together into this thread.

First of all there were a lot of hours looking into Google earth. When I was prepared, I started the first scouting. My Husaberg was resting on the trailer and off we went to Müncheberg, a small town east of Berlin.

This is the first day going south. It's not the original track but roughly.

I was heading south as far as Lübbenau in the Spreewald. Spreewald is an area which is swampy, they have a lot of small waterways there. It is a very touristic place nowadays.

On the way I passed the manor house Steinhöfel and the nice town of Bad Saarow with its romantic railway station.

The starting point of the run to Baltic sea should be the spreewald so I turned here.

Of course not everything you see in Google earth or a map turns out to be a track you can follow. Sometimes it's a cycle path and if you are in touristic area there will be hordes of cyclers on it. And of course a lot of the tracks are banned for motor use. But there was enough of nice tracks left. They are used by the locals and because this area is not so much populated it does not pay to pave them. Unfortunately nature tourism is booming in these areas, so my old tracks might be lost.W-):mad:
