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

Huy or Hott in Anderbeck

The Huy (pronounced “Hüh”, from Old High German for height) in Saxony-Anhalt is a ridge in the foothills of the northern Harz Mountains. It rises up to 314 meters high and is still largely unknown as a hiking area. However, there are some sights to discover on well-marked geological hiking trails. For example, the Huy-Fallstein claims to be the “largest

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

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

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

Four Hills Tournament: Qualifying competition in Oberstorf

Four Hills Tournament: Qualifying competition in Oberstorf

The Four Hills Tournament, which starts every year around the turn of the year and ends in the first week of January, is something I have been following since I was a child. Anyone who has experienced it knows that sporting events live on site are a completely different experience than the Sofaloge could ever offer. For the first time,

Sylt in November

Sylt in November

Sylt in November. Gray clouds, rough sea, lots of wind, and rain. That’s how I imagine (late) autumn on the North Sea. But, and this is also part of the truth, in this season, the island exudes a calmness that quickly transfers to me. So, in case the train brings me safely and somewhat punctually – which at least succeeds
