Bödigheim Castle With the first parts build in 1286 and a moving history, the Castle of Bödigheim today is mostly used as residential quarters for normal people. I envy them for the huge gardens. From Bödigheim to Eberstadt Did you ever experience this? The thick fog today intensified my impression of total silence around […]

The Schönerlinder Teiche are an area just behind the Berlin city limits in the north. We didn’t have a lot of time but we could also have hiked the Arkenberge, which are the highest “mountains” in Berlin (incredible 120m above sea level) and in visible distance from the lakes. On this short hike – approximately […]
Now it’s undeniable—the dark winter times are coming. Since I hike and photograph, I experienced a change in mindset when looking at the weather: Through the lens every kind of weather is beautiful and has it’s charming parts.

A wonderful hike along Havel river through Grunewald, Germanys biggest city forest.
Read something about the very moved history of the beautiful island of Schwanenwerder at the entrance of the island.
On the island, during Nazi era, Goebbels, Speer and other leaders “bought” – for more or less symbolic prices – Villas from Jews.
In 1933 when the first edition of Monopoly appeared in Germany, the most expensive road wasn’t Schloßstrasse like it is today but Inselstrasse, upon which Goebbels banned the game.
Maybe you can have a cappuccino in one of the sailing clubs overviewing the Havel. But at the end it’s Berlin. You never know before trying 🙂
Gaze at the other shore of Havel river trough Großes Fenster and have a look at Grunewalds oldest oak tree in the garden of the lifesavers station.
If you do it in summer, bring insect repellent.
The only downer is that you will always hear some slight traffic noises even when already in dense underbrush. But man, you’re still in the city! What do you want?

The Felsenmeer is an enormous agglomeration of huge rocks which is hundreds of millions of years old. Due to the continental drift this strange formation build up and shows us earth’s history ever since. At least since we are here 🙂 Some of the rocks have even been sculpted by the ancient romans. We have been there to explore the rocks and the surroundings.
