The defensive tower of Warberg

The defensive tower of Warberg

Warberg Castle is something like a childhood memory. It’s just a stone’s throw from Helmstedt. At high school I had many classmates from surrounding villages, including Warberg. I don’t think I’ve ever been to the castle. I’m also not sure if it was already a seminar venue back then. But no matter what it was like at the time. Even

Between Pond and Lake: Gut Adolphshof Loop from Schwicheldt

Between Pond and Lake: Gut Adolphshof Loop from Schwicheldt

We start in the small village of Schwicheldt. We cross the Mittelland Canal and then turn right before the shooting club. Not far from our starting point, the first highlight awaits us on the right: the pond of the Peine Fishing Club. An oasis of tranquility for people and a playground for animals: we spot birds, coots, water striders, and

On the Harzhorn Discovery Trail

On the Harzhorn Discovery Trail

As a fan of ancient Rome, visiting the Roman-Germanic battlefield of Harzhorn is a must. Essentially, I was just waiting for good weather. Last Saturday, it finally arrived. With sunny 25 degrees forecasted, there are no more excuses. The fact that the Harzhorn Discovery Trail can also be incorporated into a beautiful hike makes the whole experience even more attractive.

Hikes in Chalkidiki

Hikes in Chalkidiki

Compared to Crete, Chalkidiki may not be known as a hiking destination. However, in my opinion, it is worth exploring parts of the island on foot. Since we are exclusively using public transportation, we embark on two excursions. The first one takes us to the mountain village of Kassandrino. The second hike follows the Kassandra mountain trail. We also undertake
