One afternoon in Friedrichskoog

The last two Weeks, I have been pretty much living here in Brunsbüttel. But since today was my last Day, I wanted to do something that I had not done before. I wanted to do something kinda special. So, after Interning for a half Day, I just drove down to Friedrichskoog by the Nordsee. That… Continue reading One afternoon in Friedrichskoog

Mole 4

Here in Brunsbüttel, where the Elbe meets the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (NOK), there are four Molen to guide Ships into the Schleusen at the beginning of the Kanal. Last Weekend, I had already visited Mole 1, one of the two publicly accessible Molen. The other one of those is Mole 4, and I had actually been around… Continue reading Mole 4

Taking Ferries

Today, after Interning here in Brunsbüttel some more, I decided to take the Scenic Route back to my Accommodations. And it was not even that much longer, Distance Wise. It did however take much more Time to go by Ferry then it would have had I just driven straight back. Those Things usually run on… Continue reading Taking Ferries

Another Day in Brunsbüttel

Today, I had originally planned to visit the so called ’Fischmarkt’ here in Brunsbüttel. It was a very disappointing Experience though, as it turned out that it actually was more of a Flea Market than anything else. But when I was leaving the Area, I noticed that a Guided Tour of the Schleusen was just… Continue reading Another Day in Brunsbüttel

Mole 1

Yesterday, I had a great Time watching Ships at the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (NOK) and the Elbe from Mole 4 right here in Brunsbüttel. There was quite a bit of Traffic, and it was really awesome. Today, after browsing some Regional Magazines, I then decided to head out to Mole 1 right on the other Side of… Continue reading Mole 1

Ships at the NOK

I love Ships. Those Things have always been kinda fascinating to me. And today, I finally got to see quite a few at the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (NOK) right where it meets the Elbe. None of them were particularly large Boats, but I still liked most of them. But maybe that was also because I had not… Continue reading Ships at the NOK

At the NOK

This Monday, I arrived in Brunsbüttel for an Internship. That Day, I had also visited the Elbe right next to the Start of the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (NOK) to Kiel. Today, I then also visited the Locks in Brunsbüttel. It had just rained, and it was looking like more was to come, but I just had to… Continue reading At the NOK

At the Elbe

Since today, I am Interning in Brunsbüttel, but that is completely unrelated. I also spent a little Time at the Elbe, not far from the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal. Sadly, there was only one Ship in view today, and it was more of a tiny Boat than anything else. I still liked the Area where I was a… Continue reading At the Elbe

Two very different Buildings

When I was out there Exploring in the Speicherstadt once again, I saw a lot of beautiful Things. All those old Brick Warehouses are just so awesome, I really love it to spend some Time there whenever I get the Chance to do so. There are also some very stark Contrasts between the Speicherstadt and… Continue reading Two very different Buildings

In Hamburg

Last Wednesday I had a very long Trip to the North of Germany. It was great, and dare I say, it was even productive in an unrelated Way. Since the shortest/ fastest Way to my Destination also took me through the outskirts of Hamburg, I had decided to just stop there on my Way back… Continue reading In Hamburg
