Home is where my backpack is. Oder wie schon Goethe sagte: Nur wo Du zu Fuß warst, bist Du auch wirklich gewesen.
We start in Königkrug. The peaks of Achtermann and Wurmberg are still hidden in the clouds. First on the Kleine Bode, later on the Große Bode, we go towards Braunlage. Shortly after the upper Bodewasserfall, the two rivers merge to form the Warman Bode.
Braunlage offers a strange picture. The cable car has come to a standstill, there are no skiers to be seen. You don't normally see the city like this in winter.
The sun is slowly working its way through the clouds. And so there are also beautiful views of the Wurmberg and the Achtermann on the way back to Königskrug.

The first weekend with significant snow in the Harz Mountains. You have to get out of there.
We start in Sonnenberg. And as it should be with the name - the sun is shining. When we arrived at the Oderteich, it was already drawn. We are now walking along the historic dam from 1715. Some passages are completely iced over. Soon we will reach the Clausthaler Flutgraben. This water is directed to Clausthal-Zellerfeld; it used to power the mines there. We go back to Sonnenberg along the ditch.

From the mausoleum of the Counts of Asseburg-Falkenstein (HWN 207) we climb up to the Ackeburg. There is not much left to see of the former ramparts. But the view (HWN 204) into the Selketal and Falkenstein Castle on the other side of the valley is gigantic. It's wonderfully warm in the sun. There's no mistaking it, we have to take a break here and enjoy the view. Cranes fly south over us.
Now it's back down to the Selke. And after a short stretch in the valley, the ascent to Falkenstein Castle (HWN 200) follows. It's always a great sight. Such a large and fully preserved castle. Now in the afternoon there will be more and more cranes flying over us.
Over the donkey climb it goes back down to the Selke and back to the parking lot.

In the Tänntal the typical Harz can be admired. Either it has already been cut down or it is still standing, but is dead. But there are also the first areas that are freshly afforested.
The Plessenburg forest restaurant is very popular. The great majority of hikers and bikers come here via the nearby Ilsetal. For us there is a beautiful ridge path over the Meineberg. Far-reaching views of the Harz foreland and the Brocken included. The descent is tough. A narrow trail winds steeply down into the valley.

In the morning we have thick fog in the Leinetal. We'd rather go to the Harz Mountains. But in front of it there is a traffic jam almost 20 kilometers long 🤮🥵. The autobahn is closed and everyone is tormented by the main road. Secret routes are in demand.
Finally arrived the sun shines from the sky. You have to use a day like that. Today we are on the Dammgraben. At first it is still cool, in shady places there is frost on the grass. Cranes fly south all day. Winter is approaching so slowly.

The cave dwellings in Langenstein are always amazing. It is not known when the first were carved into the rock. In any case, they were inhabited until 1910. A lot has happened since our last visit. Other apartments have been restored and made accessible.
Now we go on a wonderful ridge path to the Hoppelberg. A strong wind is blowing. Again and again the path leads past rocks, or there are steps carved into the rock.
Then we come to the cave dwellings on the Altenburg. These were still inhabited until 1916.
But the further way is blocked. But the diversion is no less interesting. A long stairway that was carved into the rock here.

Halberstadt was badly damaged in the war. But they still exist, the beautiful corners with lovingly restored houses. Unfortunately, there are also buildings where I think the architect should be sued. Creepy new buildings in the middle of the old town. Then again half-timbered buildings that are left to decay. Everything is close together in this city.
At the end of the tour we come to the cathedral square. And while you're there, let's take a look at the cathedral treasure.

The old town of Koblenz has surprisingly little to offer. Why are so many tourists walking around here?
We decide to take the cable car to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. A history festival is to take place up there. Definitely great in the fortress ambience. The cable car ride over the Rhine alone is an experience in itself. Romans, Celts, Prussians and lots of mead await us in the fortress.
After a few hours we drive down again. And are almost overrun by the tourist crowds.
