Beach hike from Binz to Prora.
At least a bit, then we strolled further on the beach promenade.
Once there, as expected, there was cappuccino and Belgian waffles
with caramel sauce - simply delicious. 🤣
Prora is still a construction site that continues to change year after year.
The sand sculpture exhibition and the books outlet have now moved back to Prora.
For this, old walls have been redesigned. 👍
Back we cheated and took the bus. 😉

Small, short hike on the coast of Thiessow.
Like every year on Rügen, we went to the Rügen market in Thiessow and then walked a few more meters.
The goal was the pilot tower. On the way there, we also passed the Kleiner Königsstuhl lookout point.
It was a nice short hike with a very nice view over Greifswalder Bodden and the Baltic Sea.

Around the Brombachsee.
We started from the Ramsberg car park on the south side of the large Brombach axis.
The parking fee is € 5 for the whole day.The first time we did the complete tour. That means around the large Brombachsee, around the Igelsbachsee and around the small Brombachsee. That is approx. 30 km. The route is not demanding, but very varied. The paths are quite well developed.It is very difficult to highlight individual highlights here. The entire route is a highlight.Everywhere there are opportunities for a little rest. For this purpose, benches are set up again and again on the bank.
Here one is prepared for tourism. There are always opportunities to stop off around the lake.
We can recommend the restaurant "Die Bucht" on the beach in Ramsberg. There is a varied menu and dishes at moderate prices.For water rats, there are opportunities to swim around the lakes, and not only at the official bathing spots.
The wakeboard facility in Absberg is very interesting.The small detour to Ottmannsberg was due to curiosity about the farm shop. It's just stupid that we didn't pay attention to the opening times on the signpost. The shop was closed (weekdays from 4:00 p.m.).And because it was so beautiful and we won't be coming back straight away, we drove around the large Brombachsee again after a coffee break.Today was Friday, the weather was good and the rush at Brombachsee was limited.
I could imagine that on weekends it would be quite busy here.
We will definitely come back here again and for sure on a weekday.

Our bike tour today led Marion and me from Kronach via Untergundelsdorf, Haig and Burggrub to the Friedenskapelle on the former German-German border between Burggrub and Neuhaus-Schierschnitz.
Then we drove to the alpacas, whose pasture is in the immediate vicinity.
The alpacas - also known as the dolphins of the pasture - exude an absolute calm. 🦙
These animals in Burggrub are therapy animals and more information can be found on the website: heilsame-alpakaweise.de
Via Stockheim, Reitsch and Glosberg we continued to Friesen. We took a short break between Friesen and Dörfles. We had ☕️ and 🍰 with us as a precaution. 😉
From Dörfles we drove to fortress Rosenberg and then the fortress trail, around the fortress, via Otti's snack bar down to Haßlach and along the river back to Kronach.
A varied route over cobblestones, bike paths, gravel and dirt roads and country roads with little traffic.

It's one of my favorite rounds.
From Kronach to Mitwitz to the moated castle and this time via Beikheim and Unterlangenstadt back towards Kronach.
A short detour to this futuristic-looking bridge over the Rodach near Redwitz a.d. Rodach.
And of course not without stopping at the Bratwurst-Hopf.

Here in Komoot I have heard of the legend widespread in the area around Wildenberg that the joker's grave is said to have been moved there.
So I decided to pay my respects to the Ulknudel from the Middle Ages. 🤣
The tour took me from Kronach via Neuses, Hummendorf, Weißenbrunn and Schlottermühle to just before Grün.
At the exit of Weißenbrunn Komoot guided me to the left parallel to the main street through a residential area, first uphill and then downhill to get back to the main street. Next time I would stay on the road to save energy.
Shortly before the green, the path led to the right of the local connection road on a farm road directly to Wildenberg.
The ascent from here to Wildenberg is quite challenging even with an e-bike.
Wildenberg is a small, quiet place. There is a statue of Till Eulenspiegel in the village and a bench next to it invites you to relax.
The story can be read on a sign next to the sculpture.
The view around Wildenberg is gigantic.
Then I cycled on via Eichenbühl and Au to Küps. Here a short rest at Bratwurst Hopf and then back to Kronach via Johannisthal.
The tour was varied and led over paved cycle paths and farm tracks as well as roads. I only missed shadows on the entire route.Memo to myself: next time don't forget sunscreen.
I blew my arms up a lot.

Bike tour to the confluence of the Rodach and Main rivers.
The route is not particularly demanding but very varied.
All in all, there was everything from the road, bike path and forest path.
My first destination was the headland between Main and Rodach.
With Komoot, the goal was not difficult to find.
I drove most of the way downriver more or less next to the Rodach.
When I arrived at my destination, I was a bit disappointed. There was nothing to be seen of the confluence of the two rivers.
I could see the Main and I could also see the Rodach. However, the tip of the headland at the confluence was so overgrown by trees and bushes that no view of the confluence of the two rivers was possible from here.
I then drove via Hochstadt to the opposite bank of the Main, then had to cross a meadow and then stood on the bank of the Main, directly opposite the point where the Rodach flows into the Main.
Now I had actually achieved my goal. I also saw the confluence of the Main and Rodach rivers.
I then chose the return journey from Hochstadt a little differently than the outward journey.
All in all, it was a nice, varied and interesting tour.

Hiddensee, this small, narrow island is definitely worth a visit.
With the ferry from Schapprode you can e.g. translate to Kloster, Vitte or Neuendorf.
This time we went to Neuendorf, simply because the ferry was ready to leave when I bought the tickets.
The crossing is not exactly cheap: € 20.90 per person for the return trip and € 8.00 per e-bike.
The villages of Kloster, Vitte and Neuendorf exude a unique charm.
On the west bank of the island there is a kilometer long sandy beach that is not half as crowded as other beaches on Ruegen.
In each of the places on Hiddensee, cafés, restaurants or snack bars invite you to take a break.
In the "Haus Hiddensee" in Kloster there was coffee, among other things. delicious homemade waffles with sea buckthorn cream and whipped cream and the smoker in the port of Kloster attracts with delicious fish rolls.
In the “Summer Palace Hiddensee” in Vitte there is, in Marion‘s opinion, the best sea buckthorn ice cream in all of Rügen.
This year we took a close look at the north of the island.
The landmark of the island, the Dornbusch lighthouse, can be visited and climbed.
In the very north of the island there is an interesting cliff.
Due to the rain last night, the view was so clear today that we could see from there to Denmark and also see the offshore wind farms off the coast of Rügen.
The visit to Hiddensee today was definitely a highlight of our Rügen vacation this year.

In Komoot I found a route via Groß Stresow to Lauterbach Mole that we absolutely wanted to drive this year.
Thanks to everyone who published this series in Komoot.
First a hint, do not take the road from the B 196 towards Nadeltz (L29). It's awful. I've ridden cobblestones before, but that's extreme.
I wanted to cut something short, big mistake, we were shaken up a lot.
But the rest of the route made up for it. It leads over field and forest paths, paved bike paths or side roads that are generally easy to drive.
In Groß Stresow the first stop at the house of traitors. A historic building with an interesting history. (See photos)
We continued along the banks of the Stresower Bay to Muglitz.
Then the route continues a little further inland to the Goor.
There are always interesting corners by the water here.
Shortly before the Goor bathing house, we switched to a section directly on the water. But pushed the wheels on this route.
At the Lauterbach Mole harbor, there were delicious fish rolls from the smokehouse “Berta”.
Freshly strengthened, we went on to Neukamp out of curiosity. From there via Putbus back to Lauterbach Mole.
We drove the way back to Binz with the mad Roland. An experience that we did not want to miss this year either.
