Nature reserve of 184 hectares on the eastern edge of the city of Berlin. A great place for watching Berlins wild birds.
East of Mahlsdorf, the Erpe, an offshoot of the river Spree, meanders through the forest and meadow landscape close to the city. The Erpetal nature reserve is an area with many different habitats. There are woodlands, there is a small river, and there is a little lake. The area is really big, so different birds find their home there. You can encounter birds like Common Kingfisher, Greylag Goose, Tawny Owl, Eurasian Moorhen, Long-tailed Tit, European Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Siskin, Short-toed Treecreeper, Black Woodpecker and Great Spotted Woodpecker.
You can park nearby or drive per S-Bahn from Berlin to the station "Friedrichshagen" than you can go by feet or bike. Click on the P in the map to get directions. The circular walking route indicated on the map is about 4,5 km long.
Please note that there are many unleashed dogs, so if you want to visit you should go early, or the area may be crowded by people and their dogs.
