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.
There are many, some might say countless, Teiche in the Harz. That is especially true around Clausthal and Buntenbock, and so it should be no surprise that I visited yet another Teich I had never been to before today. After work, I stopped a the Entensumpf near Clausthal. But instead of going there, I crossed… Continue reading Yet another Teich.
Lately, the Harz is always very Full on account of all the Snow we have been having recently. And because I am currently trying to avoid Crowds, I did not want to go anywhere touristy. Other Areas of the Harz are very beautiful as well, and when there are less People, it is easier to… Continue reading An unknown Teich.
The Harz is beautiful. But it is also massively overcrowded, especially during the Wintertime. And that Mass Tourism brings its very own Problems with it. And it can be really bad. I really do not think that it can stay that Way, not just because of the Pandemic, but because Nature is Hurting. And a… Continue reading The Dark Side of the Harz.
Winter in the Harz is a beautiful Season. There is a lot of Snow, and it looks awesome on the Trees and Mountains. I absolutely love it. Sadly, we have not had that much Snow this Year. There was pretty much none, except for higher Regions around Torfhaus and the Oderteich. Snow in the Harz.… Continue reading So much Snow!

I always knew that Exploring the Forest is good for your Mental Well-being, and now I found… Continue reading Waldbaden.
After replacing the Oderteich with the Okertal last Monday because of the Weather, I finally made it there today. It was still very Foggy, but it looked really awesome with all the Snow. I absolutely love it to visit the Oderteich, and it is one of my personal Favourites in the Harz. It actually also… Continue reading A foggy Afternoon at the Oderteich.
Yesterday, it snowed a little in the Harz. But I was in Berlin yesterday, and so I decided to go up to Buntenbock today. Most of the Snow was gone already though. There was however some of the White Goodness left in the Woods. It was very beautiful. And also very Cold. A little Snow… Continue reading Wintery Woods.
Today was a great Day. Work went along beautifully, and so I had a little Time to be out in Nature for a little while. All I had to do was to figure out where I wanted to go. That was no easy Task, but I ended up at the Prinzenteich in the End. I… Continue reading Back at the Prinzenteich.
I have pretty much always lived on the Foothills of the Harz, but until pretty much just last Year, I never really appreciated its natural Beauty. Then I started to collect to more actively Collect Wandernadel Stempel. With that, I learned many Things and saw even more. My Love for the Harz was reborn. At… Continue reading Why I like the Harz.
