Today we walked along the Bille and through Aumühle on Sunday afternoon. A nice little place with some sights, which is only 15 km away from us.amt-hohe-elbgeest.de/Gemeinden/Aum%C3%BChle/Gemeinde/Portr%C3%A4t-der-Gemeindede.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aum%C3%BChle

This morning Marlies asked if we wouldn't like to go for a stroll through Lüneburg again. Yes, of course, we can start. Lüneburg's old town is always worthwhile and while you're there, you should definitely climb the Kalkberg and enjoy the magnificent panoramic views of Lüneburg from there.

I've always been a big fan of Rüdiger Nehberg. He lived here in Rausdorf until his death on April 1st, 2020. Of course he knew the area like the back of his hand. After a long time we have been here again today.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%BCdiger_Nehbergkomoot.de/highlight/2601926

Basthorst is only 10 km away from us and is always a nice destination for a tour.
Basthorst is particularly known for the estate with Vicky Leandros and the traditional Christmas market, which costs €7 to enter but still attracts a large number of people from Hamburg and the entire area. Marlies regularly likes to go to this Christmas market. There is far too much hustle and bustle there for me and I prefer to stay away from such crowds. Everyone the way they like it. Only a few people were there today - very pleasant.😉Further information:gut-basthorst.de

In wonderful winter weather we ran off the many calories from the Christmas roast today on Christmas Day. It was frosty, but the bright sun kept warm. I didn't even need the packed thick winter gloves.From the former location of the Ertheneburg you have great views over the Elbe to the Elbe Lateral Canal. It's worth going up there once.
Then we went down to the former ferry pier, where you can also enjoy great views of the Elbe. Then a little way down along the Elbe through the Biberland and back up on the Hohe Elbe bank.
A nice round that I can happily recommend.
We wish you all a pleasant holiday.

... past the Krümmel NPP and inductively refueled the batteries. The NPP is supposed to be shut down, but there is still a lot of activity there and the many power lines and the insulators at the huge substation above the NPP are buzzing quite violently the humid environment.
You can almost physically feel the high voltage here - very exciting, so to speak.
Where does the electricity come from when the NPP is shut down, you ask yourself spontaneously.
The site of the NPP is freely accessible, even if it doesn't look like it through the gates and signs. The "Waldweg" leads right through it and is also signposted as a bicycle path in parts.n-tv.de/wissen/Helmholtz/Warum-brummen-Hochspannungsleitungen-article21149114.html

Today we were in Niendorf an der Stecknitz again. Many years ago the Limes Saxoniae also ran in the area.
The Limes Saxoniae was an unpaved border that separated the Frankish sphere of influence in the Saxon northern Albingia from the area of the Slavic Abodrites since around 809.
Niendorf an der Stecknitz is a beautiful little place in the Duchy of Lauenburg district in Schleswig-Holstein.
According to Wikipedia there are 26 places with the name Niendorf (with ie) and 14 (with i), but every place is something special, just like this one.
The Mühlenberg is the highest point here at 80.6 m. It was pretty stormy today and up on the Mühlenberg it was storming and rustling even more violently. That's why we had better stay away from big trees on the tour today, as far as we could.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niendorf_a._d._St.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niendorfde.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nindorfde.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limes_Saxoniae
