    Höxter

    August 18 in Germany

    Nach dem Frühstück spontan zur Ausfahrt entschlossen.
    Samstag nur noch einen kurzen Einkaufsbesuch auf dem Wochenmarkt, dann nur noch Hunderunden.
    Sonntag mit dem Rad auf der Ostseite bis Lauenförde und auf der Westseite wieder zurück. Auf den Hinstrecke den Landvergnügenplatz Rittergut Meinbrexen angeguckt, Womoparkplatz hinterm Ort auf einer gemähten Wiese, ganz allein und ruhig.
    Beverungen an der Brücke sind alle großen Bäume weg, Brückenbaustelle. Schade um den schönen, schattigen Platz.

  • Day546

    Busy day today with two WHS visits, though one was a re-visit! Up early in the morning and headed over to Corvey, where the site was the Carolingian Westwork. This is basically a huge western facade from a church that dated back to the 850s, ie the Carolingian era. It was a very important monastery too, though the monastery (and indeed the church attached to the western facade) were both long gone.

    It was interesting enough, particularly the frescoes inside which featured Christian interpretations of Greek myths (eg Odysseus), something that's non existent these days but even for the times was unusual. Apparently when the monastery was built this was the fringe of the Christian world and it was a part of converting the local pagans. Interesting.

    Back in the car where we drove about two hours to the south, heading for the town of Kassel. We'd stopped here last time to check out the Bergpark World Heritage Site, which was a large mountain park with an enormous water feature that naturally didn't run in the winter. It runs two days a week during summer, so we made the trek to go and see it.

    Lots of other people had the same idea; it was very crowded but nice to see! The whole show takes about 90 minutes, as the water works its way through various features like cascades, waterfalls, an aqueduct, several fountains etc down the hill. You start at the top and just follow it down, which was quite nice. Took lots of photos to do a blog post on at some point!

    The hotel we'd stayed at last time had expensive summer rates this time around, so we stayed about 15 minutes outside of town. Only food option nearby was IKEA!

    Ankunft in Höxter

    June 14, 2017 in Germany

    Alles klar, Niedersachsen liegt hinter mir. Nun bin ich in Nordrhein-Westfalen an der Weser. Ich hatte heute das Vergnügen ein Stück den Weserradweg Ost- und Westuferseitig zu fahren. Was ein geiler Radweg. Super Strecke mit Top Aussicht. Rechts die Berge, Links die Orte. Ich weiß nicht was mir der Rheinradweg später bieten wird, aber die Aussicht ist schwer zu überbieten.

  • Day17

    Ich habe direkt neben der St. Michaelskapelle auf dem Heiligenberg gezeltet. Mir wurde dieser Platz empfohlen, da man von da eine tolle Aussicht hat. Die tolle Aussicht hatte ich zwar 200 Meter weiter, neben der Kapelle war ich aber geschützt vor dem Wind. Außerdem hatte ich etwas zum unterstellen.
