Krumme Lanke (Berlin XVI)

Berlin has no Pate Hollow trail, but it offers many lakes that can be walked around, and that are, alas, similar in the type and amount of gratification they offer.

The Krumme Lanke is one of them, and a part of a chain of lakes in the Grunewald, connected by streams.

The lake itself is elongated and curved, as the name suggests.

In the summer, the water level rises considerably when hundreds of brave locals immerse. I don’t know.

I prefer the dark winter hours when the scraggly trees start to talk to each other.

Do ducks write such long poems elsewhere, too?
