This essay describes in detail two chapters of the Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg: Fontane's description of the lake Werbellin and his discussion of Hans Herrmann von Katte's trial, who was executed in Küstrin, both in the second volume of the Wanderungen. Its shown, that Fontane is not interested in the landscape but in history: while strolling around the narrator evokes the past. His narration combines stategies used and proclaimed by the historiographers of 19th century Historicism with an own poetical impulse. This permanent confrontation of both views reveals the humane an inhumane aspects of history.
