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.

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.

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.

Taking the Brockenbahn… again.

Yesterday, I visited Drei-Annen-Hohne in the Harz to take some Fotos of the Brockenbahn and maybe get a Wandernadel Stamp. I only managed to do one of those things. After having captured a few Fotos and some Video of a few passing Trains, the Idea to take the Train started to wander around in my… Continue reading Taking the Brockenbahn… again.

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. In the Rammelsberg Mine, they used to extract mainly Lead, Copper and Zinc from the Rock until it was closed in… Continue reading A Field Trip underground.

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. Today, there was still some Light after my Workout, and so I decided to change that. I chose the far End of Lerbach as my starting point, and it was… Continue reading Lerbachs Mühlenteich.
