Beautiful trail, easy to walk

Beautiful nature, lovely paths (requires some stamina, some parts go uphill). Great landscapes and a river, that reminds me of the mountain rivers

If you go by car recommended by Waze or Google Maps, be wary of a quite steep driveway to the parking, as the gravel road has very many potholes! Other than that, the track has a lot of beautiful views and stairs, so bring a water bottle with you and of course some food to enjoy the beautiful scenery and to wind down.

Good path for a walk, includes mounds path in the woods and big greens. With a couple of open spaces for scenery shots and benches for a sandwich pitstop. It is not long, but might be a bit tricky if you are not steady on your feet because some spots near the river are slippery. Also path is not even. It does not require special gear but pay attention!

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
