My new Hiking Kit.

I absolutely love Hiking and Exploring Nature. I also enjoy collecting Harzer Wandernadel Stamps a lot. I only have 30, but there will be many more of those in my Future. Up until now, I always had my Wanderpass and my other Gear in the plastic Sleeve of my Hiking Maps. Now only the Maps… Continue reading My new Hiking Kit.

Back to the Eselsplatz.

Hiking in the Harz is awesome. Especially when you do it with someone else, and not just by yourself. A while ago, I hiked all the Way from Buntenbock to Osterode with my Mom. During that Hike, we also came past the Eselsplatz and collected our Wandernadel Stamps there. Today, I went there again with… Continue reading Back to the Eselsplatz.

To the Kleine Oker. [HWN 149]

Today, after finding out that I did not have to go to work, and also after getting quite a bit of Stuff done, I headed to Altenau in the Harz to grab me yet another Wandernadel Stamp. I decided to just go for one Stamp today though, at the Kleine Oker. That Stempelstelle is numbered… Continue reading To the Kleine Oker. [HWN 149]

Back at the Oderteich. [HWN 217]

I had not planned to go out on a Hike today. But when my Mom called and asked me to walk around the Oderteich together, I did not hesitate to say yes. I really like the Area around the Oderteich, and Hiking is always a nice thing to do. Being out in Nature definitely is… Continue reading Back at the Oderteich. [HWN 217]

Two new HWN Stamps. [HWN 131 & 141]

I really love Hiking in the Harz. Being surrounded by Nature and Exploring Places is the absolute best. But I have not been out Hiking in a while. My last real Hike was on German Father’s Day last May, when explored around the Achtermannshöhe near Oderbrück. But then it was to warm for Hiking and… Continue reading Two new HWN Stamps.

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.

Bad Harzburg. [HWN 121]

I absolutely love it to Explore new places. Originally, I had intended to Hike to the Wolfswarte after today’s Exam, but the sky was very grey and it looked a lot like rain. So, after spending a short time in Torfhaus, I drove on to Bad Harzburg. When I arrived there, I had no idea… Continue reading Bad Harzburg. [HWN 121]

The Achtermannshöhe Video.

A few Days ago, I hiked up to the Achtermannshöhe near Oderbrück all by my lonesome. On the second half of my Hike, I also shot some Video. And that was also where the Quality of my Fotos started to drop. That is because my cheap VND Filter added a green cast to pretty much… Continue reading The Achtermannshöhe Video.

My Hiking Kit.

I really like it to Hike in the Harz. But as with anything, preparation is key. And that also means bringing the right Gear. And while I do not need a lot of it, I do have my Essentials. My Wandernadel Pouch. The most important piece of my Kit is definitely my Wandernadel Pouch. In… Continue reading My Hiking Kit.

Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe.

Today was a Holiday here in Germany. And I went Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe in the Harz. The Parking Lot was packed with Cars, but luckily, the Trail was quite empty. I started my Journey in Oderbrück. That is just a little south of Torfhaus. From there, the Path took me through the Forest right… Continue reading Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe.
