Snow & the Teich.

Today, just before my Economics Exam, I just had to step out for a few minutes. I decided to go down to the Hasenbacher Teich near Buntenbock. I chose that Place mostly because there was some snow.

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.

It… Continue reading The oldest Talsperre in the Harz

The Liebesbankweg.

Today, I was out Hiking again. This time, I went on the Liebesbankweg near Hahnenklee, and I brought some Friends along.

After about one and a half Kilometres… Continue reading The Liebesbankweg.

Hiking through the Fog.

Today, I was out hiking in the Harz with my Family again. We had originally planned a 10 kilometre round, but it was quite foggy and very rainy.
