Crossed the border!!!
We went to the neighboring state of Saxony-Anhalt. Okay ... are only 15 km. 😁 The strawberry field in Aga was also approached. However, the yield has not been completely healed.
The wind today cost a lot of grains ... I'm broken now 🤪 ...
The round was still very nice. Greetings...Here is the tour with another app:

Comfortable tour after work. First the Bike House Weiser controlled. Afterwards I cycled back relaxed and explored a few villas. Gera also has buildings that can be called eyesores. But there are also the other beautiful villas. I am particularly looking forward to Villa Meyer. This imposing building, almost a palace, is currently being renovated ...

The next part of the villa tour through Gera. This time by bike, but very comfortable. Due to the climatic conditions (☀️ and at least 28 °) and the high number of villas. The stop and go started from Berliner Straße. Many villas are beautifully decorated and show the splendor and beauty of these fantastic historical buildings. Fortunately, some villas are still being renovated. Gera has very nice sides. In the end there was a cooling off at Miss Clara's ice cream ...
Maybe you like it ... greetings

A climb up
and praise the view .... ☀️Today a little hike near Saaleck. The car parked in a parking lot on the Saale in Saaleck and climbed to the castles. First passed the Saaleck castle ruins and on to Rudelsburg. After the tour around the castle there is also a small climb to the tower. There is a restaurant in the courtyard. I personally like the courtyard very much. We continued on the opposite side to the Kingdom of Heaven. This is a restaurant with a wonderful view. The salad was very good and refreshing and the sundaes looked good too. You can try it out and make your own judgment. After descending to Saaleck, we passed the church and the beautiful old rectory. Really great condition. Then the tour was over and highly recommended. Flora and fauna also had a fantastic appearance. You just have to look and be lucky ...

Today the desire to ride a bike was too great ... so let's go. In the meantime surprised by the rain, but always found a natural shelter 🌳 and still ended the tour reasonably dry. Driving the way to Löbichau differently today because a buzzard between Beerwalde and Löbichau wants to defend his territory and probably his young birds. But that's how you see something else. Not all paths were paved, but it was still a very nice tour. And at the end a picking campaign on the strawberry field Korbußen, delicious.
Test again and again and then also the new café in the manor house Posterstein.
Greetings ... 😁🤪🍓

Planned for a long time, but only got a taste of it again yesterday with the “Small Villages Tour”. So it went to Untermhaus, a very popular district of Gera. At the foot of the "House" (Osterstein Castle - under the house), close to the center, but also blessed with greenery, be it the Hofwiesenpark or the nearby city forest, it is easy to endure here 😃. Not a bad place for beautiful villas from around 1900. And Gera has some of them. Some in need of renovation, many in very good condition, some unused and some inhabited or used as a trade.
One often hears that Gera is not a beautiful city. Perhaps Gera is not as strong economically as it was in its heyday, but for me it is a beautiful city. I am aware that it is a matter of taste and every city has its bad and beautiful sides. But you don't always have to see everything negatively. On the contrary! Therefore, the beautiful pages should also be highlighted. I like such historic buildings and they shouldn't be hidden. There are many beautiful villas in Gera that should be seen (most of them only from the outside). Maybe other people like it too. If so, then they can already look forward to another villa tour.
Until then best regards...
PS .: My personal highlight is the Villa Hirsch in Hermann-Drechsler-Straße 2. Very large property, which is located in its own "park". The gate in / with the tower to Theaterstrasse is very impressive.

Off to Debschwitz in the "residential area" of Gera. In Karl-Marx-Allee, Vollersdorfer Straße and Straße des Friedens (B 2) there are some beautiful and imposing villas from Gera's "heyday" around 1900. But that's just a small impression of Gera's "Villa Bracht".
