The Prinzenteich & Me.

There was a Time when I did not like the Prinzenteich. It was overrun and overrated. But back in 2019, something changed. I returned to the Prinzenteich and I liked it. Since then, I have returned many Times. Something always draws me back to the Prinzenteich. At the Prinzenteich. Today, the Area was completely covered… Continue reading The Prinzenteich & Me.

Yet another Teich.

There are many, some might say countless, Teiche in the Harz. That is especially true around Clausthal and Buntenbock, and so it should be no surprise that I visited yet another Teich I had never been to before today. After work, I stopped a the Entensumpf near Clausthal. But instead of going there, I crossed… Continue reading Yet another Teich.

An unknown Teich.

Lately, the Harz is always very Full on account of all the Snow we have been having recently. And because I am currently trying to avoid Crowds, I did not want to go anywhere touristy. Other Areas of the Harz are very beautiful as well, and when there are less People, it is easier to… Continue reading An unknown Teich.

The Dark Side of the Harz.

The Harz is beautiful. But it is also massively overcrowded, especially during the Wintertime. And that Mass Tourism brings its very own Problems with it. And it can be really bad. I really do not think that it can stay that Way, not just because of the Pandemic, but because Nature is Hurting. And a… Continue reading The Dark Side of the Harz.

So much Snow!

Winter in the Harz is a beautiful Season. There is a lot of Snow, and it looks awesome on the Trees and Mountains. I absolutely love it. Sadly, we have not had that much Snow this Year. There was pretty much none, except for higher Regions around Torfhaus and the Oderteich. Snow in the Harz.… Continue reading So much Snow!

Höhlen & Burgen [HWN 101 & 151]

After a while of not collecting any Wandernadel Stempel, I decided to go out to Scharzfeld today. There, I actually earned two new Stempel. I arrived in Scharzfeld around 2pm. It took me quite a while to find the appropriate Parking Lot, but I did, and after Parking the Car, I only had to Walk… Continue reading Höhlen & Burgen [HWN 101 & 151]

‘Winter’ at the Entensumpf.

After having an awesome Afternoon at the Oderteich yesterday, and also because I still have some Vacation Days to rid myself of, I decided to visit the Entensumpf again today. Even though that Place did not make my Top 3 of the Harz this Year, I still love it there. Or I used to love… Continue reading ‘Winter’ at the Entensumpf.

A foggy Afternoon at the Oderteich.

After replacing the Oderteich with the Okertal last Monday because of the Weather, I finally made it there today. It was still very Foggy, but it looked really awesome with all the Snow. I absolutely love it to visit the Oderteich, and it is one of my personal Favourites in the Harz. It actually also… Continue reading A foggy Afternoon at the Oderteich.

Using a Tripod.

I really do not like it to use Tripods, they are big, bulky and take some Time to set up and adjust Properly. To me, Tripods are generally a Pain. But yesterday, I actually brought my old Manfrotto Befree into the Okertal to just give it a Shot. I thought that I might be able… Continue reading Using a Tripod.

The Okertal.

Since I do not have to Work this Week, and after finally putting on some Winter Tires yesterday, I decided to drive into the Harz and do a little Exploring. My original Location fell out, because there the Fog there was way to Dense. You could not see much even if you wanted to. In… Continue reading The Okertal.
