The summer has been announced for the WE with pure sun. Shortly planned a bike tour and booked train tickets (R1 and R7). In the morning at 8 clock from Magdeburg along the Elbe to Schönebeck, there the Salzlandkulturstempel (SLK) with salt flower, Gradierwerk and Ringheiligtum Pömmelte registered in the stamp book. About the Elbe through the Elbe to the Pretziener weir (SLK No. 29) and then across the country with castle Leitzkau, Lindau Castle and many interesting village churches to Wiesenburg. There I got back on the train at 19.34 and passed the very nice sunny day afterwards. Of course, a lot of photos have been taken, which are to a large extent reflected in the highlights.
In case of deer I must have missed a branch, because I drove from then on to Wiesenburg on the main road, although this was also signposted as a bike ride. Luckily there was very little traffic. Otherwise, always on bike paths, rural roads or side roads on the road, Komoot makes it already good suggestions.
Windy it was also, of course, mainly from the front, at least from the Elbe to Wiesenburg, but remained spared by the rain until the end. Refreshments were unfortunately only in the touristically developed areas (Elbe and Wiesenburg), as had made the breads.

From the tranquility of the forest and the Grunewald tower in the back leads the return trip across the city to the Max-Schmeling-Halle. There I watched the exciting 4th game of the playoff finals series between the BR Volleys and the VfB Friedrichshafen. The atmosphere in the hall sold out with 8,553 spectators was great.
The contrast to the Waldidylle before could not be brighter. All in all a successful day.

The hiking day has the motto: forest conversion and climate. An employee of Berliner Forsten accompanies and explains the project. The tour takes about 3 hours and leads along a 4 km long circular route. At 11 information islands, the so-called "Waldwohnzimmern", numerous topics are being staged there to adapt Berlin's forests to climate change.
The circuit can of course also be explored without expert guidance. He is also very informative and instructive.

Company outing in the Grunewald forest exhibition "Wald.Berlin.Klima."
Of course, the arrival and departure is by bike, the weather is stable and a few degrees have come to it. Across the city with the districts Pankow, Wedding and Charlottenburg mostly on bike paths, although these are not in the best condition. However, the path has really brought joy from Theodor-Heuss-Platz, and the coronation then from Postfenn to the finish Grunewald tower.
There then starts the rd. 4 km long forest exhibition (further see hike komoot.de/tour/66073814)
At the end of the long WE the bike tour from Quedlinburg via Gernrode with collegiate church and cuckoo clock along the European cycle route R1 to Ballenstedt and Meisdorf to Aschersleben to the station.
Fresh 7-9 degrees and showers of rain were the companions, sunshine would certainly have been desirable for the tour packed with attractions. Still, it was still nice along the Harz.
At the Siftskirche Gernrode there is now a stamp office of the HWN, the Café Froschkönig opposite was unfortunately still closed, otherwise always worth a stop. In Ballenstedt there is a castle "Anhalt" to admire, although this deep in the Harz as a ruin to visit. Some stamp points of the HWN had to be taken along the way: Forstmeister Tannen; Old coal shaft; Bismarck tower at Opperode, from which one has in good weather a wide view over the prairie to Brocken and deep into the Salzlandkreis inside; Mausoleum in Meisdorf and the Konradsburg.
Worth seeing is the tower windmill and the many small village churches along the way.
Shortly before Aschersleben it became drier but still quite fresh. The one-valley cycles very pleasantly to the center of Aschersleben. There is the town church of St. Stephani on the market square and some preserved city fortifications.
By train then back to home.
And then the bike has to be "encrusted" for future tours and made "workable" again.
The Harzer hiking nobility officially opened the hiking season 2019 on 28.04.2019. Of course there were also some special cancellation. After stamping, I took a little stroll through town. Of course, I also ate a cheesecake at Vincent in Finkenherd. The small circular route went this time also outside the old town center in the park Brühl near the Bode. At the end of the day I went to the brewery Lüdde and drank two to seven home-brewed beers, really delicious. Quedlinburg is always worth a visit.
Mit "der Entdeckung der Langsamkeit" den alltäglichen Büroalltag vergessen lassen und die Natur mit allen Abenteuern und Erlebnissen entdecken.
Dazu gehören neben meiner Vorliebe des Radfahrens mittels Tourenbike und Mountain-Bike (natürlich mit Muskelkraft) auch das Wandern und Bergwandern. Im Winter möglichst auch das Skifahren.
Themenwanderwege als Mehrtagestouren sowie Radwandern sind ein willkommener Ausgleich zum hektischen Alltag und Lärm der Großstadt.
