This stage connects the city of Berlin, the capital of Germany, with Oranienburg- another historically steeped city.
While in Berlin you can find sights as the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag at the route, that also leads you along the former Berlin Wall, the Spandau Ship Canal and the Havel River.
In Oranienburg, in the north of Berlin, the chateau at the Havel River- that was once Home of the Great Elector and his wife- with its big park and gardens, is waiting for visitors.
Hennigsdorf was first mentioned in 1375 but only in 1938 it obtained its present coat of arms.
Due to the construction of the Berlin Wall the route of the direct S-Bahn to Berlin Heiligensee was cut off. This compound was not restored until 1998.
In the district of Nieder Neuendorf is one of the three remnant border observation towers of the Berlin Wall with an exhibition of the history of the object.
