Cutting a Hike short.

A while ago, I started to collect Wandernadel Stempel. But I have not gotten any in a while, mostly because I have most of the Stempelstellen nearby in my Wanderpass. This Winter, I have started to collect something new though, to have an incentive to learn more about the Harz: Oberharzer Teiche. And I have… Continue reading Cutting a Hike short.

Three Teiche in one Go.

I find the Oberharzer Wasserregal extremely fascinating. And Teiche are a huge Part of that sprawling Water Management System. Last Sunday, I was able to Hike around Zellerfeld and the Wasserläufer Teich with my Family. Since there are two more Teiche in that same Area though, I decided to return for a short After-Work-Walk today.… Continue reading Three Teiche in one Go.

The Oberharzer Wasserregal.

Lately, I absolutely enjoy it to Discover Teiche around Clausthal in the Oberharz. There are a lot of them, and most are actually very beautiful. Especially with all the Snow. But most, if not all of those Teiche are actually Manmade. And they were all built for a Reason. The Ziegenberger Teich. | ca. 1645… Continue reading The Oberharzer Wasserregal.

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.

The Flambacher Teiche.

After getting my Hair Cut today, there was still a lot of Time left in the Day. So decided to go to the Flambacher Teiche for the First Time in my Life. I had been on the Parking Lot from where you get to the Teiche quite a few Times already to eat something and… Continue reading The Flambacher Teiche.

At the Okertalsperre.

The Harz is extremely Beautiful. I absolutely love this Area of Germany to bits. Today, I visited the Oker between Oberschulenberg and Mittelschulenberg, or just before the Okertalsperre. Up until now, I always only drove past the Area or went Exploring on the other side of the Road. So I really did see something new… Continue reading At the Okertalsperre.

The Harzer Wandernadel.

I really love it to Explore the Harz while Hiking through its Woods hunting Stempel. But what is the Harzer Wandernadel, you might ask? I always knew of the Wandernadel System, and sometimes even collected some Stempel on random Pieces of Paper or on my Hands. But in 2018, I then finally got my Wanderpass.… Continue reading The Harzer Wandernadel.

The Prinzenteich, again.

Lately, I really love it to go to the Teich after Work. This Week, I visited first the Hasenbacher Teich and then the Ziegenberger Teich. Today, I visited the Prinzenteich again. I have been there before during this last Year, in fact I have been there countless times. But before September 12 last Year I… Continue reading The Prinzenteich, again.

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

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.
