Corona-diary: The playboy-lap within the Einbecker urban forest

Christina/ December 26, 2020/ The daily grind

The Motto: “Doing something different for a chance” has a quite new meaning these days. Spending time outdoors has become very popular by now. Today, on Christmas day, Christian take his bunnies for a walk into the Einbecker urban forest. Why? Because the playboy-bunny has a trial of its own down there! Next to the bunny’s path there is more

Corona-diary: A circuit trail around Altencelle

Christina/ December 23, 2020/ The daily grind

Here it is again: the second lockdown this year has arrived in Germany. Once again I look out for rewarding excursion destinations in the neighbourhood. This time I discover a new hiking trail close to Celle, more precisely at Altencelle (the old part of Celle, but not the historic town). The path is called the “C1” and leads via Osterloh

Corona-diary: The Mini-Christmas markets have gone

Christina/ December 22, 2020/ The daily grind

Twelve degrees and sun shine in December and regardless thirsty for mulled wine? Well, these three wishes cannot be combined with each other. Whereas wish no. 1 and 2 are fulfilled on this saturday, wish no. 3 is neglected. We missed the “Drive-in christmas market” at Rautheim. Since Wednesday we have our second lockdown of the year. Merry Christmas? We

Corona-diary: Freyburg and the Schweigenberg circuit

Christina/ December 1, 2020/ The daily grind

This time it is love at first sight: Upon our arrival at Freyburg/Unstrut on a sunday morning we are immediately enchanted. The town is very nice and above all offers a wide range of different hiking trails. On the parking site for hikers we choose the Schweigenberg-Rundweg which is genuine piece of jewellery! Zscheiplitz with its minster is definitely the

Corona-diary: The mill hiking trail close to Naumburg

Christina/ December 1, 2020/ The daily grind

Where are the mills? During our hike this Saturday we kind of wondered where the mills promised are supposed to be. The brochure of the tourist information promised us „nine impressive wind and water mills“ on this walk between Naumburg, Boblas, Wetterscheid and the Kroppen valley. But we saw almost nothing of that. The actual surprise of the day was

Corona diary: The count of Braunschweig trail

Christina/ November 27, 2020/ Culture

Today I walk on a historical path and encounter the count of Braunschweig (CoB). It is about the battle of Jena-Auerstedt. In case you are in doubt whether this hike is worth a visit, let me tell you this much: if Goethe was here it must be interesting. And he was. The so called Goethe cycle path crosses the path

Corona-diary: The castles of Dornburg

Christina/ November 26, 2020/ The daily grind, Culture

I mentioned it already in my article about Jena that the castles of Dornburg are still on my to-do-list. The beautiful weather on this tuesday invited us to make this trip and visit the castle ensemble with its gardens today. And I can tell you this much by now: No matter if it’s Rokoko, Renaissance or high-medieval architecture: the so

Corona diary: Blütengrund and castle magic

Christina/ November 26, 2020/ The daily grind, Culture

It is cold outside, very cold. The thermometer shoes minus 1 degree. The white frost on the grass and on the trees gives me a first notion of Christmas. The sun beams from a deep blue sky and lures me into nature. Wearing some layers of cloths on my body I get on my bike. The air is very clear,

A short trip to Camburg

Christina/ November 23, 2020/ Culture

Sunday morning. The sky is grey, the chance of rain is about 40 %. Time for a short trip to Camburg by bike and maybe further on to the castles of Dornburg. From Bad Kösen I cycle via Lengefeld, Saaleck, Kleinheringen and Kaatschen to Camburg. The weather stays dry. Whereas the outward journey is unhurried the way back is stressful.
