Biike-brennen at the Marienburg

Biike-brennen at the Marienburg

This Saturday we are going to Hildesheim again. We meet at the train station, from there we go to the Gasthaus Kupferschmiede. This is where our today’s tour starts. Right at the game gate next to the restaurant we are magically captivated by the goats. The enclosure is an attraction for young families. It quickly becomes clear that the goats

Vernissage: Marcel van Eeden

Vernissage: Marcel van Eeden

When I arrive at the exhibition site shortly before 6 p.m., the two classical gatehouses of the Museum of Photography are already well filled. It is not yet clear to me whether the numerous greetings are spoken in the right or left part. I first choose the building on the left, looking out of town. The cash register is there

Green Border: a stain on democracy

Green Border: a stain on democracy

We from the “West” are never tired of telling the world how important human rights are to us. But only as long as our own prosperity is not threatened. How else could we explain the fact that we use our tax money to support ex-dictators like Mubarak or Gaddafi and still-active autocrats like Erdogan? Or rather, that we can use

Ghosting and blame-shifting in relationsships

Ghosting and blame-shifting in relationsships

Is ghosting solely an online dating phenomenon? By no means. Ghosting, this term refers to the sudden, radical, and often incomprehensible cessation of contact, which proverbially comes out of nowhere. Psychologists say that behind it usually lies an insecure, conflict-avoidant person who prioritizes their own feelings over those of the other party. And what about the “ghosted” partner? Is it

Hike around the Imperial Cathedral of Königslutter

On this Sunday, I had actually planned to go to the Harz mountains, but Mr. Weselsky didn’t want to go:-( So, my friends from the Harz simply came to me instead. In advance, I naturally wondered what I could offer the two experienced and spoiled hikers with a clear conscience. This consideration led me to Königslutter’s magnificent building, the Imperial

Exhibition “The Polish Action” in the Braunschweig City Library

Exhibition “The Polish Action” in the Braunschweig City Library

The history of the so-called “Polish Action” can currently be seen as a traveling exhibition in the Braunschweig City Library until February 29, 2024. The frightening thing about the historiography is the references to the current situation in Germany. In a country where, almost 80 years after the Second World War, a movement is planning to repeat cruel processes under

Exhibition: “The Dancers” by Heinrich Römisch

Exhibition: “The Dancers” by Heinrich Römisch

There is an all-rounder at work here. Heinrich Römisch not only presents a number of his numerous works in the “Jewel”. Pictures from. No, he also provides the musical framework with the Blue Moon Trio. Cheers! I call that admirable. Especially since I have no talent for drawing or painting myself. That commands respect from me. During the vernissage, how

The Martyrdom of Piotr O’Hey

The Martyrdom of Piotr O’Hey

The Free Stage Braunschweig, under the direction of Andreas Hartmann, rehearsed the play “The Martyrdom of Piotr O’Hey.” Inspired by the Polish writer and playwright Slawomir Mrozek, the amateur actors performed the play on January 14, 2024, at Brunsviga. Despite the satire’s origin, the Polish playwright’s commentary remains as relevant as ever. Perhaps it is even more timely today than

Premium hikes at the West Allgäu

Premium hikes at the West Allgäu

Hiking in the Allgäu region has its charm in every season. In spring, the blooming meadows; in summer, the happy cows; in autumn, the colorful foliage; and in winter, the sun. Yes, we had little snow, but plenty of sunshine. Particularly beautiful are the sunrises and sunsets in the clear winter air. It’s fitting that the “aussichtsreich” premium hiking trails
