The long way to the Kästeklippen

The long way to the Kästeklippen

After a long time, I’m visiting Bad Harzburg again. Alongside what was supposed to be a short hike, a concert at the Bad Harzburg Stud Farm in Bündheim is on the agenda.

While the first crime novel focuses on Lieutenant Karim

Galka Scheyer: Homage to a strong woman

This Sunday I leave the Braunschweig Municipal Museum deeply impressed. What happened? I visited the finissage of the exhibition “Galka Scheyer and The Blue Four”. At the end of today, guided tours were also offered. I was already expecting it to be packed on International Museum Day with free entry. But when the heavy rain started outside 30 minutes before

(Deutsch) Ausflüge in Sardiniens Norden

Although it’s still low season and public transportation is infrequent, we were able to go on some beautiful excursions. The north of Sardinia has a lot to offer in this regard. Right on the first day of our delayed arrival (https://www.unionesarda.it/de/sardinien/enav-flugzeug-von-landebahn-abgekommen-ermittlungen-eingeleitet-schwere-verspatungen-und-fluge-an-die-costa-smeralda-umgeleitet-tgh40g27), we visit the tourist information.
