Radfahrer: früher sportlich ambitioniert. Heutzutage eher Genußradeln
On Martin's Day we made a leisurely bike ride to Goldenstedt. Via the stubble market past Lutten, we went to Goldenstedt directly to the café of the organic country bakery Diekhaus. After a leisurely tea break, we went back home via Arkeburg with a detour to the "Haus im Moor" via Telbrake and through the Füchteler Forest. All in all a nice, leisurely bike ride. The preparations for the flight of the storks and cranes to North Africa can be observed very nicely in many fields

Today I wanted to look again what was going on in the Europaviertel. No sooner said than done, on the Sachsenhausen bank of the Main over the old Niederräder bridge, leaving Orange Beach on the left, coming from the west into the Europaviertel. It is always very astonishing how quickly the appearance changes if you haven't looked by for a few months. It is being built, built and built. I'm curious to see whether a few secluded spots will be established in the Europagarten in the next few years. Something was already going on on Tel-Aviv-Platz.
Resumé: Well, no matter how you like the building craze, it remains an exciting place. Always an interesting tour.

Today we did an interesting city tour in Berlin. Since we both didn't know Berlin before, we took part in an organized bike tour. A great, interesting tour with very, very many new impressions. I found the experience at the former Berlin Wall particularly interesting. The impressive photographs on the walls of the house and in front of it were taken at the exact spot. ... Immediate history experience.
Our great tour guide David provided us with all sorts of strange anecdotes on the route. Here is the link from the organizer.
Resumé: all in all a worthwhile bike tour, although I really missed my camera.

Sodele, after some strenuous and eventful days of cycling, we have today reached our final destination, our federal capital, Berlin.
About the tour: this time we didn't take the direct route to Berlin, but turned left into the Grunewald and then continued on the main route. In retrospect, that was the right decision. There was an incline on the "detour", but a very nice, quiet stretch through the Grunewald. The direct route would have continued along a main road.
Well, driving into Berlin is more or less inevitably a bit stressful, but easy to do.
Well, tomorrow we will take a closer look at the city as Berlin novices.p.s. Since my small compact camera gave up the ghost yesterday and I'm not that enthusiastic about smartphone photos, only occasional snapshots with the smartphone camera are to be expected for the time being.

Today we made a very nice, sunny exploration tour in Potsdam. To come to the point: We liked Potsdam very, very much. Great flair, relaxed atmosphere, very nice corners everywhere and lots of water and greenery.
Resumé: If you are in the area, be sure to take a look.

Like yesterday, we had no high expectations today on our bike tour from Lutherstadt Wittenberg to Potsdam Babelsberg. For us it was mainly about getting from A to B by bike. After long deliberation, we decided on the first Komoot tour suggestion without "taking highlights with us". So our tour was, as if drawn with a ruler, not very eventful.
By the way: Komoot was strange again. The tour should be 340 m, but then it was 660. Hmh?
