At the Kuttelbacher Teich.

Today was a beautiful day. And after Work, I just had to spend a little time in the open air. And since there is currently a Wandernadel Sonderstempel at the Kuttelbacher Teich near Hahnenklee, I decided to go there. After finding the Stempelstelle and stamping my Wanderpass, I decided to walk around the Teich mostly… Continue reading At the Kuttelbacher Teich.

The Dammgraben.

The Harz is always beautiful. And today, I enjoyed a short walk at the Dammgraben just out of Altenau. And I had a great time. It was nice and warm outside, and I enjoyed the sun a lot. And although it was also a little windy, it was awesome. At the Dammgraben. The Dammgraben is… Continue reading The Dammgraben.

The oldest Talsperre in the Harz

Just east of Osterode, sitting in a Harz Valley, sits the Sösetalsperre. I never really thought much of it, as it was always there. Today, after taking a Chemistry Exam, I decided to find out a little more about the local Talsperre. The Dam of the Sösetalsperre is largely made of Earth and Gravel. It… Continue reading The oldest Talsperre in the Harz

A Field Trip underground.

Today, I was able to go on a Field Trip to the old Rammelsberg Mine in Goslar. And we were actually able to Mine Shaft that is usually not open to the general public.

Lerbachs Mühlenteich.

I am in Lerbach quite often since I am going to the Gym there for almost two Years. But I never really Explored the Area.

I love Fachwerkhäuser.

Here in Osterode, Fachwerkhäuser, or Half-Timbered Houses, are quite a common sight, especially in the towns Centre. In fact, I currently live in a Fachwerkhaus.

I absolutely love Fachwerkhäuser. Every single… Continue reading I love Fachwerkhäuser.

The Pfauenteiche.

The Pfauenteiche are three of the many Teiche around Clausthal. But they are much more than just that. Before and during World War 2, a TNT Factory was operating on one side of the Teiche, and the Area is still dangerously polluted and thus under permanent lock-down. The ‘Werk Tanne’, that is the Name of… Continue reading The Pfauenteiche.

Hiking around a Quarry.

Quite a while ago, I asked my Instagram Followers to tell me their favourite places in the Harz so that I could go and Explore a few of them. Today, I made my way to Wolfshagen im Harz to go and hike around the abandoned Diabase Quarry there. I started my journey to Wolfshagen at… Continue reading Hiking around a Quarry.

Klostermarkt in Walkenried.

Today I had an early morning exam at University. I think it went well. But in the afternoon, I had some time to spare. So I made my way to Walkenried to visit the local Klostermarkt.

Visiting the WeltWald.

Today, after going grocery shopping with my grandma, I decided to go to the WeltWald Harz in Bad Grundto take some Pictures and explore for a bit. I even got a Stamp towards my Harzer Wandernadel.
