Castles in the Schwarzwald

Since I arrived here in the Schwarzwald, I already came by three Castles. I visited two of them with my Family, and I drove past the third many Times so far. But as I found out, those three are only the Beginning. Apparently, there are many more in the Area. In Zavelstein. The first Castle… Continue reading Castles in the Schwarzwald

Schwarzwald vs Harz

After exploring around the Schwarzwald for some Time, and absolutely loving it so far, I thought a quick Comparison to my old Stomping Grounds, the Harz, could be in order. I know I have not been here very long yet, but I still feel that I have already made some valid Observations. A small Road… Continue reading Schwarzwald vs Harz

Red Regional Trains

By now it should be no Secret that I really like Trains and other Railroad related Stuff. While my favourite Loco is a 218 and my favourite German Train is the ICE 1, I do not get to see those very often here in my Small Town. There is an hourly Regionalbahn Connection in two… Continue reading Red Regional Trains

At the Entensumpf, once again

There are many beautiful Places here in the Harz, and it is always nice to Discover new ones. It is also great to go back to where you have already been to Explore those Areas a bit more. And that was exactly what I have been doing today. Ever since I first visited the Entensumpf… Continue reading At the Entensumpf, once again

Back at the Prinzenteich

Last Week, I had returned Home from my ultimately fruitless Internship up North in Brunsbüttel. Since then, I really have not done that much Photography. I just had been a bit too busy for that. But today, I had a little spare Time before heading to the Gym, and so I visited the Prinzenteich once… Continue reading Back at the Prinzenteich

During my Time in Brunsbüttel, I lived relatively close to both the Elbe and the NOK. Because of that, I was just sitting out there by the Water pretty much every Evening watching Ships going past. For the most Time, there were not really any huge Ships around, but it was still great. I even… Continue reading Watching Ships

At the Seehundestation

Last Friday was the last Day of my Internship in Brunsbüttel, and it was only a Half-Day. Because of that, I had a bit of Time to spare before I had to pack up and drive back Home. I ended up driving to Friedrichskoog by the Nordsee, where I got half of my Ice Cream… Continue reading At the Seehundestation

Driving Home

After living in Brunsbüttel for the better Part of the last two Weeks, my Time there ended Yesterday. And of Course that meant that I had to drive back Home. I had to Options of getting there: Driving through Hamburg and getting stuck at the Elbtunnel, or driving through Glückstadt and getting stuck at the… Continue reading Driving Home

Mole 4

Here in Brunsbüttel, where the Elbe meets the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (NOK), there are four Molen to guide Ships into the Schleusen at the beginning of the Kanal. Last Weekend, I had already visited Mole 1, one of the two publicly accessible Molen. The other one of those is Mole 4, and I had actually been around… Continue reading Mole 4

Taking Ferries

Today, after Interning here in Brunsbüttel some more, I decided to take the Scenic Route back to my Accommodations. And it was not even that much longer, Distance Wise. It did however take much more Time to go by Ferry then it would have had I just driven straight back. Those Things usually run on… Continue reading Taking Ferries
