Our hiking friends R & G guide us today to the sand dunes between Speyer and Dudenhofen. We walk a few hundred meters to the largest in the German inland dunes. Part of the sand dunes is "National Natural Heritage". The stop with coffee and delicious cake is determined on-site and is obligatory as always.

Today a boat trip to Föhr was on the program. Föhr has been a seaside resort for 200 years. From the harbor, the island tour goes over the fish market in the Wyker pedestrian zone, through winding streets and past, quaint, old Frisian houses. Past its kilometer-long sandy beach on the promenade and through a small park, the so-called North Sea garden, to the tranquil village NIeblum. The town is adorned with beautiful Frisian and captain's houses and the impressive St. John's Church with its "talking stones". Nieblum is for me the most beautiful village on the island, so I wanted here again after 30 years. A delicious ice cream and then it goes back to Wyk and the ferry to "my" beautiful island Amrum.

The Amrumer Odde, there it pulls me today. There is the northernmost part of the island Amrum. The Odde is over two kilometers long and up to 200 meters wide. On the east side is the Wadden Sea and on the west side of the open North Sea. The center of the Odde is a 25 meter high dune belt. The northern part is closed and designated as a nature reserve. The association Jordsand looks after this area. Here are many seabirds nesting.-
Today's tour is again a mixture of cycling (30,6 km) to the parking lot at the Norddorfer beach crossing and hiking (10.5 km) on the large circular route around the Odde.

Every day is a nature experience here on Amrum. Amrum lies in the middle of this natural paradise »UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea«. The wealth of life is extraordinary on and around Amrum, a total of about 10,000 different plant and animal species live here! Untouched natural landscapes and the wide sky with the call of the sea and beach birds as well as an incomparable biodiversity in the varied landscape make every day a nature experience. On the Wadden Sea the sea breathes in the change of tides; through the ups and downs of the dunes lead planks. Extensive heathland and the island forest offer a contrasting landscape, as you will find it on any other North Sea island. (Source: Amrum Touristik)

Amrum, the pearl of the North Sea. Amrum is located south of Sylt and west of Föhr. She is her to Sylt, Föhr and Pellworm the fourth largest island of the North Frisian archipelago. Breathtaking is the place fog with its thatched roofed houses and beauties can be found at the endless dunes with thousands of seabirds. In the center of the island, the Geest dominate the forest and heathland, and on the Wadden Sea, the sea breezes in the interplay of the tides. There is much to explore here.

From Weinheim through the well-known exotic forest I hiked a little bit today on the Bergsträßer Blütenweg. Here you can experience the cultural landscape of the mountain road with all its scenic attractions. Continue on the castle path up to the pavilion at Geierskopf and continue ascending to the Wachenburg castle and Windeck ruin. Both are high above Weinheim. On the way back down to Weinheim, a detour to the tanners' quarter and the old town should not be forgotten. Anyone who appreciates flowers and plants should not miss the Schau- und Sichtungsgarten Hermannshof.
