On the way from the Crozon peninsula to Brest you should definitely make a detour to the Abbey in Daoulas. Here is a much slowed down hike, the rapid migration of kilometers is replaced by the contemplation of Romanesque cloisters, by listening to the babbling well water, by inhaling the scents of Damascus rose, Diptam and lemon verbena and by the refreshing effect of an ancient medicinal source
A trip to the top of Saint-Mathieu, the northernmost limit of the Bay of Brest. Here, there is a lighthouse built on the site of a 10th / 11th century abbey, accompanied by a national monument to lost seafarers who stayed at sea during the First World War. An impressive place in every respect, for which one should take time, e.g. as a stopover on a hike on the coastal path Sentier Côtier No.34. You will find my detailed descriptions and in-depth research on this location in the highlights.
I discovered this beautiful place through my sister, who wants to surf on the peninsula Crozon. But also for non surfers this is a great place to unwind. And so my sister can go surfing calmly, my partner is allowed to sit on the dune and make the lizard (sunbathe in french is called faire le lézard) and I break with komoot to small hikes to explore the surroundings, to photograph and to botanize ,
10 stops include the artist trail in Ahrenshoop. To escape the Easter tragedy I visited the 4 boddenseitigen stations. At the stations are panels with pictures, which were painted in these places by well-known Ahrenshooper artists. The hike became a plein air of a special kind: full midday light, drop shadow, difficult to photograph. But the reduced Bodden landscape, together with the colors of spring, subdued by the ever-present sea air, paints its pictures on its own. Such a day explains without much ado why Ahrenshoop became a place for painters.
Bevorzugte Wandergebiete sind Sächsische Schweiz, Osterzgebirge, Leipzig, Burgenlandkreis und Rügen und vielleicht komm ich mal wieder an den Mont Caroux
