Dachs IV

Last Week, I explored around Werk Tanne in Clausthal as Part of my new #HistoryWorthTelling Series. Today, I ‘explored’ around yet another industrial remnant in the Harz, Dachs IV near Osterode. Dachs IV was an attempt to move Fuel Production underground during the latter Days of World War II, after Germany had become vulnerable to… Continue reading Dachs IV

Forest Stonks

Most Readers of this Blog should know that I really do love Forests. Forests are the best. But they are also hurting because of Climate Change and the very dry Summers that came with it these past few Years. Here in the Harz, wast Areas of Forests are dying, and that really makes me sad.… Continue reading Forest Stonks

Avoid Forest Fires.

There are many Forests here in the Harz, and a lot of them are Spruce Monocultures or other Needled Trees. And just like in every other heavily wooded Area, there is always the Risk of Forest Fires. And while the Fires here are lower in Number and smaller in Size than those, for example, in… Continue reading Avoid Forest Fires.

Photography in the Woods.

Photography is kind of my thing. I really love it to be Creative and Explore new Things at the same Time while being out in Nature. Forests are a huge Part of Nature. And I really love it to Wander around amongst the Trees and capture beautiful Fotos of them. At the Prinzenteich. As a… Continue reading Photography in the Woods.

Spruces in the Harz.

Large Spruce Forests are a typical sight here in the Harz. But a lot of them are dying due to the Buchdrucker Beetle, a form of Bark Beetle common in large Spruce Populations. A lack of Rain and the very hot Summers we had these past few years due to that Beast called Climate Change… Continue reading Spruces in the Harz.

#HistoryWorthTelling

Yesterday, I explored the Area all around Werk Tanne. The former Explosives Factory near Clausthal-Zellerfeld is a very interesting Part of our Heritage here in the Harz. But since it came to be in the Dark Ages of the Third Reich, it is also History that is mostly kept under the Rug. I get it,… Continue reading #HistoryWorthTelling

Werk Tanne.

The Harz has a long History. Some of that History is awesome, like how it came that there are so many Teiche in the Area. But not all History in the Harz is good. Being in Germany, the Third Reich and World War II also happened here in the Harz. There were Camps and forced… Continue reading Werk Tanne.

A Teich in Hahnenklee.

As you know, I really love it to Explore in the Harz. Today, I bridged the Time between my Exam and the Gym reopening after their Lunch Break and spent an hour or so in Hahnenklee. But this Time around, I did not visit the beautiful Norwegian-style Gustav Adolf Stabkirche. It is beautiful, but I… Continue reading A Teich in Hahnenklee.

Respect Nature.

I love the Harz. And Nature plays a huge Part in that Relationship. It is the most important Thing in the Harz, alongside with the very interesting Heritage of the Area. Nature has to be treated with the utmost Respect at all times. But there are a lot of People that just do not see… Continue reading Respect Nature.

The Brockenbahn Video.

Last Sunday, I had a great Time exploring around Drei-Annen-Hohne and then taking the Brockenbahn to Schierke and back for only 5€. It was great. I took a load of Fotos, as I usually do when I go somewhere. But I did not only capture some Stills. I also shot a considerable amount of Video.… Continue reading The Brockenbahn Video.
