A little way for a tall woman.
Until some time ago, completely unknown to me, Cato is considered a great German resistance activist against the regime, which called itself the "3rd Reich".
Your name and your work deserve to be better known.
Born in 1920, at the age of twenty-three, she was executed in 1943 in Berlin Plötzensee.
Cato grew up in Fischerhude and met Otto Modersohn and his sons here ...

The small path that was named after her leads past the church. The old tombstones that are set into the small wall that surrounds the church stand out here.

Fischerhude is a picturesque place in the middle of a beautiful meadow landscape, which is characterized by old trees and cobbled streets. Its old houses and the artistic bohemian atmosphere make Fischerhude a treasure chest that is worth a visit at any time of the year.
Fischerhude is on the long-distance cycle route Hamburg - Bremen.
From my point of view, the Otto Modersohn Museum is worth a visit, which is mostly open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. modersohn-museum.de

You can take a nice break in the garden of the Berkelmann inn, which is located in the vicinity of the small, beautiful church.

The artist village of Fischerhude is nestled between the many arms of the Wümme. Many trees give the place a special charm and for this reason it is also called an island forest village.
The little village is romantic, rural and quiet and is absolutely worth a visit.

Moor and geest, forest and heather, dunes and pastures: the wide meadow landscape around Ottersberg is impressive because of its great diversity. The small village of Fischerhude (mentioned in a document as early as 1124) is nestled in rows of trees made of old alders and oaks. The special thing about the idyllic surroundings are the many arms of the Wümme, which run through the wetland and river landscape. Even today, the many old farms are a reminder of the wealthy farmers who made their fortunes through eel and hay harvest. Numerous old duck houses, boathouses and jetties make past traditions omnipresent.
Well worth a visit.
