About Susanne Knipper
This morning I asked Dörte if we would like to go on a tour with Pia, Susanne and Günter, where should we go?
Somewhere to the coastal channel and where we haven't been yet. I first sat down at the computer 🖥 and shook a tour out of my sleeve 😅. For the rough planning I had chosen the watermill in Wardenburg. Here we all only went to the Warnken plant center in the neighborhood by car.
So Dörte, Pia and Rolli went to the two of them and then drove together via Jeddeloh I to Jeddeloh II, where they crossed the coastal channel for the first time. Immediately behind the bridge, we took our first break at the rest hut. The tour continued along the coastal canal to the Saarländer Weg. We then followed suit. Here is a really nice avenue and the autumn leaves with their great colors shimmer really nicely in the golden October sun.
The tour leads past beautiful agricultural homesteads. We then drove past the Benthullener Moor a piece of the route around Oldenburg to Fünfhausen and then took our second break at the Wardenburg watermill with delicious 😋cake and coffee ☕️.
From there we drove through Wardenburg to Tillysee. Here we followed the Hunter cycle path to Tungeln. From there we drove directly along the Hunte to Hundsmühlen. We continued via Moslesfehn to Klein Scharrel, where we crossed the coastal channel for the second time. We then drove a bit on the moor route to Portsloge and then accompanied Susanne and Günter home. Then the three of us drove home via Ekern. Later we all want to eat together 🥘. So the Reformation Day was a very nice day with great friends.

Today at noon we picked up Susanne and Günter and then first drove to Bad Zwischenahn to the bakery to have a little refreshment. Then we drove in front of the moor via Kayhauserfeld to Wold and continued along the Bad Zwischenahn-Oldenburg railway to Drögen Hasen and through the city to the ice cream parlor on Ammerländer Heerstraße. There was also the ice cream of the day 😋.
Then we drove through the Everstener Holz past the coot pond to the coastal canal, which we then crossed in Hundsmühlen. We then drove to Moslesfehn and took a short break here. From there to Jeddeloh II, where we crossed the coastal canal for the second time and then back via Jeddeloh I and safely delivered the two passengers back home. Then we drove back home via the small train path via Querenstede. Now we can all eat together first 😋

This morning we left the Schlosshotel Reichenschwand with a cloudy sky, but warmer temperatures like the previous mornings. We first drove to Reichenschwand Castle again and Rolli then walked around the castle alone to look at the park. But then I wasn't really flashed either. Some trees are quite beautiful, but as it says on the board at the entrance that it is a collection of extraordinary trees, I can't quite confirm. Everyone sees it with different eyes 👀.
From Reichenschwand we drove via Ottensoos to Lauf an der Pegnitz. The old town is very impressive. At the Pegnitz at the moated castle we could see some men who installed an installation of light objects. One of the men was standing in the river. We all flirted together 🤣. We then crossed the Pegnitz on a beautiful bicycle bridge. From there we went on to Schwaig near Nuremberg, where we took a break at an ice cream parlor and Rolli could enjoy the ice cream of the day 😋🤣. We drove around the castle in Schwaig and later came to the former industrial estate of Hammer. The Hammer factory is one of the most important constructions of a fortified medieval industrial settlement in Europe. In this hammer mill, brass products were manufactured almost continuously from 1492 until they were destroyed in World War II. Today an exhibition and the historical buildings that z. Partly from the 16th and 17th centuries, an insight into the more than 600-year history of the factory village and its early exemplary social system.
From there it went on along the Pegnitz to the ruins of the moated castle Oberburg. We were now approaching the city limits of Nuremberg.
Since we hadn't seen everything on the Nazi party rally grounds when we arrived a week ago, we decided to go back to the documentation building and have a look at the Zeppelin grandstand and the huge former arena. We then drove around the Dutzendteich to the Zeppelin grandstand. It is the speaker's pulpit for verbal whipping
After Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin landed his airship on the site in the south of Nuremberg in 1909, it was named Zeppelin Field in his honor. Nevertheless, visitors today think less of the Count of the Skies than of the Nazi party rallies. Because on the zeppelin field is the zeppelin grandstand with the golden hall inside.
The altar-like grandstand with the pulpit was designed by Hitler's personal architect Albert Speer: 360 meters long, 20 meters high and with an open hall with 144 pillars, which were blown up in 1967 due to their dilapidation. What remains, however, is one of the greatest relics of the Nazi era in Nuremberg. It is now so ailing that parts of the grandstand are closed. Until the renovation of the grandstand is dry, supporters and opponents for preservation or controlled decay will continue to turn in circles, as will the racing cars during the annual Norisring.
The Norisring races and the DTM races take place here at the tribune. After looking at the huge area here, we drove further along the large Dutzendteich and then became aware of a large concrete cuboid. It is the foundation stone for the German stadium, but it was never built. It had been given the gigantic size of a capacity of 400,000 people. It was to become the largest arena in the world. The Nazis' megalomania had no limits 🤨.
At the Dutzendteich there were also a flock of wild geese looking for food. Even the white goose Martin was there. I was still looking, but Niels Holgerson couldn't be seen 🤣😂😂😂. A beautiful tame swan 🦢 was also looking for food.
We then drove across the city and I led the group safely back to the starting point from last week, the Hotel Prinzregent.
We are all happy to be back without a breakdown and without any problems and sad 😢 that our week is already coming to an end.
Tomorrow morning it's back home by car and bikes on the trailer. But after the vacation is also just before the vacation. So we can already start thinking about the next trip in winter
