This spring will not gather momentum. Sunny and warm days are rare. My recommendation: If you catch one of them, use it. Of course, the best way is a hike in the Harz Mountains. Today we choose the Oker valley. A round course leads us from the town Oker via the Adler cliffs and the Verlobungsinsel (engagement island) to Romkerhall.
By accident I learned that the Kleiner Fallstein offers an attraction over Easter: Blooming adonis. What is so special about it? Well, adonis does not grow everywhere. And: the blooming period is in April. Two years ago I got to know this small steppe plant at the Heeseberg. On this sunny Sunday morning we are leaving for a revival of
One month ago already we booked a weekend trip into the Harz. I wanted snow for the two days. Eventhough I am not a big fan of bitterly cold weather there is nothing more romantic to me than snow-covered Harz. And actually it worked.

A hike in the snow is on our wish list. However the weather god has other plans for us and sends us into the „Barumer Moor“. The marshland is located in the middle of the beautiful Fuhsetal.

But not only New Year’s Day, also the time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve will be bridged in a sportive way. Finally the
We are using the long weekend over October 3rd to follow the Weser cycle path from Hannoversch Münden to Nienburg. In four days we cycle 270 kilometres. The weather conditions are fine. Even though rain is forecasted we have more sunshine. However the stages are pretty long and my legs are arching after a while and that’s not the only
This year we visited castle Fürstenberg and its factory for the first time. On our bicycle tour along the river Weser we came across the building. And of course we made a stop there to have a good look at the famous porcelain. This saturday, however, we are at the Städtische Museum Braunschweig to learn more about the history of
