Die Welt da draußen ist einfach zu schön, es lohnt sich sie zu erkunden.
On the way to Kattnäse we passed fields of wild garlic and beautiful panoramic views. Continue over the Rabenklippe, through the very beautiful Stöttertal to the ruins of Ahlsburg. It is interesting to follow historical traces there, but without the informative sign I would not have recognized a ruin. It went back along the corner. The middle of the Ecker creek was then the inner-German border and is still the state border between Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt today.

Accompanied by the wonderful scent of the rapeseed fields, our path leads, with a panoramic view of the Harz Mountains, to the Neolithic stone grave, which is approx. 5000 years old. Through the forest of Appelhorn we go to the former village "Dolgen", mentioned for the first time in 1154. We would never have seen the place in the quarry of the former Bundeswehr training area without Komoot. All in all, it was a very nice and varied round around the NSG Appelhorn.

The Asse has a beautiful mixed forest. Here you walk in history. Buntsandstein or "Rogenstein" can be seen here on a geoppath that is approx. 250 million years old. At that time, northern Germany was still near the equator. A memorial column was erected here in 1901 in honor of Prince Otto von Bismarck. Years ago, people willing to marry strolled down an avenue of love. The ruins of the Asseburg can be seen here, the Asseburg was one of the largest medieval castle complexes in northern Germany and was built around 1218. Of course you also have many beautiful panoramic views.

On our way through the Ilse valley with a view of the Brocken, past the lower and upper Ilse falls. The way back went first over the Schindelstieg with the Ferdinandstein, then with a view of Ilsenburg past the Paternoster cliff and the Ilsestein, where we unfortunately did not see the princess 😉, further over the donkey climb.
I was particularly excited about the Ilse Falls.
The path on the large Bode with its falls are at least as beautiful.Upper Bodewaterfall

At first glance it frightens me to see the many dead trees, but at second glance it looks very interesting. The Oderteich was once the largest reservoir in Germany, today it is a World Heritage Site. In any case, there were many beautiful photo opportunities again today 😀.

The hiking trail 19 initially leads along the Fuchsbach, then you climb up to the Kammweg. It leads through a mixed forest with countless colorful spring flowers. We are back at the edge of the forest, beautiful panoramic path. If you are lucky you will find fossils at the "Fuchsbau" spot.

Our destination was the blue lagoon in the Oder forest. In the limestone cave, the water glows wonderfully blue. A part of the way there led past a carpet of violets, a sweet bewitching scent filled the air around us. The way back through the forest was calm. It was interesting to see the stages in which nature causes the logs to rot.
