The adonis of Heeseberg

Christina/ April 12, 2021/ The daily grind/ 0 comments

The lyrics of a well-known song goes like: „When the white lilac blooms again.“ In this case yellow plants are fine, because this Sunday we marvel at something special: the spring adonis. This wonderful plant is under nature protection and can only be found in some isolated regions. One of them is the Heeseberg at Watenstedt, which offers an interesting

Visiting the gods of Irmenseul

Christina/ April 4, 2021/ The daily grind, Culture

Where to go if it should not be either the Harz or the Braunschweiger Land? Lamspringe and its surroundings can be an alternative, because here you can combine art, culture and Wanderlust. On a loop that passes by both, the Königsweg and the Rennsteig, we do not only give in to our bubbly mood in Woltershausen but enjoy truffles on

Christina/ April 1, 2021/ The daily grind

Once again looking for new hiking and bicycle destinations I get aware of the Öselberg. So far I have not heard of that hill before. But this change today. As the weather is supposed to be worse on Easter I use the window of opportunity and start around noon. However I did not expect such a strong contrary wind on

Corona diary: Where the giants live

Christina/ March 30, 2021/ The daily grind

The Corona-Pandemie still prevails and it is still lockdown. But I never tire of insisting on finding new hiking or bicycle touring destinations. This time I find my luck east of Königslutter, where the giants live, at Rieseberg (giant’s mountain). And there is not only a hill but also a moor and an adventure trail. The street king of Rieseberg

Corona diary: the Frog King of Lammer Holz

Christina/ March 28, 2021/ The daily grind

Just the crown was missing otherwise we would have met the incarnation: the Frog King of the Lammer Holz! The stupidest thing: I did not even try to find out whether it is a enchanted prince! What a wasted opportunity! Well, at least I have my Braunschweig horse whisperer with me, who saves us just a couple of minutes later

Corona-diary: Millenium!

Christina/ March 15, 2021/ The daily grind

Lo and behold! A local football club sets a good example and simply turnst he gender gab upside down. It utterly states „Ladies first“ in its true sense. Being a woman you are litterally pampered. For a season ticket you pay three times less than men! That’s what I call a nice treat. Well the intention behind is clear though,

(Deutsch) Corona-Tagebuch: Der Gipfelsturm auf das Eilumer Horn

Christina/ March 8, 2021/ The daily grind

Today we are doing something big. We are about to climb the highest height within the Elm, the Eilumer Horn. Until 1983 the Kuxberg was supposed to be the highest hill in the forest. The latter had to change places 38 years ago due to the findinds of four mountaineers from Schöppenstedt. The Eilumer Horn is 4.3 metres higher than

What is the best thing in this challenging times? Right, the discovery of something new, something unexpected that fascinates me right from the start, fires my imagination and thus demanding all of my attention.

Corona diary: At the Gifhorner Schweiz

Christina/ February 28, 2021/ The daily grind

It is located between Harz and Heide: The Gifhorner Schweiz. Another synonym is the “Tor zur Südheide” (Gate to the Südheide). This is exactly the place we want to explore today on a hike. From an online portal we downloaded a description of a corresponding hiking trail, called “through the Heide at Gifhorn”. We modify the course a little bit.
