To the end of the line on the M29Posted by in Places - 6 June 2012
If you take a 50 minute bus journey from central London, I’m pretty sure you won’t end up in the forest. Unless it’s Waltham Forest. Berlin is different. A few stops after Hermannplatz, the M29 bus stops outside my house, so I decided to take it to the other end of the line and see what’s out there.
The last stop is Roseneck. Then it’s only a few minutes’ walk along Eichhörnchensteig to Grunewald forest and lake.
It turns out that the whole of the area around Grunewaldsee is a Hundeauslaufgebiet (dog exercise area).

A heartbreaking amount of lost dogs… ^
