Charkiw: caught between yesterday and today

Charkiw: caught between yesterday and today

We stand at the Waisenhausdamm. Street number 8-11 is our goal. The former florist shop is currently home of an foto exhibition. It is about Charkiw, a city in the east of Ukraine. A city, which name and geography was only known to a handful of people. In the past weeks however, the second biggest city of the Ukraine become

Clausthal-Zellerfeld: Upper Harz’ ponds and coral reefs

When temperatures go up to 30 degrees centrigrade cooling is desired. The many lakes close to Clausthal-Zellerfeld are a popular destination. They are called the „Oberharzer Teiche“. But did you also hear about the Harzer coral reef at the Hutthaler Graben? Well, the Harz is always good for a surprise. It only takes some fantasie and suddenly the red osier

The dragonfly brothel of the Silberteich

The dragonfly brothel of the Silberteich

A saying goes: each to his own. In other words, anybody shall live and act as one think best. But how about if the behaviour breaches the public order? That’s what we experienced last sunday between Braunlage and Sankt Andreasberg. Sexually explicit dragonflies copulate free and easy at the shore of the water. Every ancient Roman brothel would pales besides

Six peaks at Bad Hindelang

Six peaks at Bad Hindelang

The Allgäu is a hikers’ paradise. The village of Bad Hindelang (825 a.a.) located in the Upper Allgäu is a great starting point for mountain hikes. We climb six peaks in a weak. Thereby we enhance our performance from 1.456 metres to 2000 metres. Next to the Hirschberg (1.456), the Spieser (1.651), the Imberger horn (1.656), the Iseler (1.876) and

Modern tales: Between villains, dominance and pain

Modern tales: Between villains, dominance and pain

The BBK Kunsthaus currently shows the exhibition “Modern Fairy tales”, i.e. classic pieces of art newly interpreted by Friedhelm Kranz. The show is not fantasy but magical. The way Kranz displays his acts is extraordinary. Works and art forms of other artists are copied and manipulated. And maybe they are also, that’s my thought, newly interpreted. For that the works

The colourful fishes of Stralsund

The colourful fishes of Stralsund

Stralsund is the pearl on the doorstep of Rügen. With its historical centre, the well preserved city wall and the ocean museum Ozeaneum the Hanseatic city is really attractive. Even though the weather is quite rainy and windy today, we still enjoyed the guided city tour. A visit to the ocean museum might be a must. However my recommendation is
