      Easy peasy circular hike to meet the urge to move in great weather and with some impressions. I've reported on Arenenberg Castle and the region a few times, so I wish everyone a nice Saturday - enjoy the time and Happy Ride on 🤟. Hopefully from the bike again soon.

      Now that it has snowed through for almost 2 days, the amounts of snow in Eastern Switzerland are considerable. The tomcat was at the start and so we went on tour with really great impressions and a wonderful splendor of colors on the Untersee. I suspect that there is significantly more snow at higher altitudes.I wish everyone a great Friday, stay fit and healthy and have a happy ride on 🤟Elmar

      A visit to St. Pirmin on the fantastic monastery island of Reichenau, starting from the parking lot at the Laib und Seele bakery.The island of Reichenau was formerly a wild island in the area of an Austrasian governor named Sintlas, who lived in the nearby Sandeck Castle, above Bernang on the Untersee.In 724 St. Pirmin was brought to the island. The island itself was then uninhabited and overgrown. Legend has it that when the saint entered the island, snakes, toads and worms escaped from the island on which they lived and fell into the lake. The escape is said to have taken three days and three nights. Then Pirmin and his forty men cleared the island and made it arable.But at the point where Pirmin went ashore and first touched the earth with his bishopric, a healing spring sprang up, which the people then used against the river of limbs.Kings and emperors competed in their donations
      the monastery. So it came about that in the first centuries after its foundation Reichenau was the wealthiest monastery far and wide and rightly called Reichenau. The legend still goes today that when the abbot of Reichenau traveled to Rome, he could
      to spend every night on their own property. This may have been due to the fact that the monastery had important holdings on Lake Como in Italy.
      The fame of the monastery reached far and wide, and for a long time it was one of the first educational establishments in southern Germany alongside St. Gallen.What remains is the charm, the magic of this very special monastery island and for me the sand soul is a place of strength, always different and fascinating.I wish everyone a nice Wednesday evening and stay healthy and fit.Happy ride on 🤟Elmar

      The thermometer showed a frosty -5.5 degrees 🥶🥶🥶 on arrival at the hikers' car park, so perfect for an intensive forest hike to feel the energies. 😆It was absolutely still, no one was far and wide, the partly frozen snow crunched under your shoes. Every now and then some more snow from the trees and made a rustling noise. Away from everything, in absolute peace, you can especially feel the energies.Why do trees have such a positive effect on us?They live in family groups, make friends and exchange messages with one another, for example about scents that contain the terpenes. In addition, trees could send electrical information through their roots and even warn each other of dangers such as harmful beetles. Trees are networked with their roots - just as we are, for example, through networks.There are many studies around the world. The fact is that forest air contains 90 percent fewer dust particles than city air. And that it contains substances that have a positive effect on our health.The forest has been revered for thousands of years, and by the way, for the Celts the tree was the symbol of life and what a Celtic tree ritual looks like, I'll tell you about it another time.Anyone who would like to join a hike on the Seerücken is welcome to get in touch.With this in mind, I wish everyone a good Monday and a Happy Ride on 🤟Elmar

      Energetic hike starting at Felben-Wellhausen train station to feel the vibrations of the water.Water absorbs information, stores it and passes it on - which we have known since the wonderful ice crystals of Masaru Emoto.Humans consist of more than 60% water (newborns up to 80%, in old people the water content can drop to 50%). This body water goes into resonance with the vibrations of external influences - as well as with your own thoughts and feelings.Water flow is a gas station for the soul and such places are called places of power. I've already reported on it a few times and I will go into more detail in my book.The path continues up many snow-covered steps towards Wellenberg Castle.The first documentary mention by Walter von Wellenberg goes back to the year 1204. In the course of the termination of the interregnum by Rudolf von Habsburg, the people of Zurich destroyed and burned the castle in 1258 because raids into the area had been carried out from it. Ulrich von Wellenberg and his two nephews were imprisoned in Zurich and ultimately had to swear a primal feud.In 1370, Wellenberg Castle came into the hands of the von Strassers as a fiefdom of the Reichenau Monastery, who handed over the property to the Lords of Hohenlandenberg around 1370. The rule of Wellenberg comprised jurisdiction over Wellhausen, Thundorf and the surrounding farms as well as the bailiwicks of Mettendorf, Eschikofen and Lustorf.Around 1513, the legendary Jakob Mötteli von Rappenstein acquired Wellenberg Castle.Jakob Mötteli vom Rappenstein also called the richMany hundred years ago Joachim Mötteli von Rappenstein ruled here, who is said to have scooped the gold from the tower of his dwelling with a bucket like a well. Now this tradition refers to the Sulzberg, the ancient ancestral seat of the family above Rorschach, but the feudal lord, remarkable in every respect, has left visible traces of his rule in Pfyn to this day.I will report on the Mötteli ghosts another time.I'm sorry that I wrote way too much again, but unfortunately I didn't have time for a shorter text :-)With this in mind, I wish everyone a nice evening and a Happy Ride on 🤟Elmar

      Again a very frosty MTB round trip at what felt like -5 degrees 🥶🥶 slowly 1 pair of gloves is no longer enough and warm thoughts are not enough either 🤪.Therefore, the 20km on the box is enough today. Starting from the free parking lot at Badi Hüttwilen, it goes through forests to St. Martinskirche. The church was built in 1471 and then gradually expanded. The view, however, is absolutely awesome when the weather is nice.Originally I wanted to go deeper into the history of the Ittingen Charterhouse, but since everything is currently locked until the end of January, I will report on it at a later date.Again through the woods we go along the Sebatsian chapel with its high Gothic frescoes, built around 1300 for the castle ruins of Helfenberg.The Helfenberg ruin is located between the Hüttwiler and Hasensee lakes. The castle was first mentioned around 1431, but excavations in 1980-1982 show that the castle was built around 1331. Not much more is known about the castle.After the fingers slowly froze on the handlebars, we went back to the starting point, true to the motto: If you can walk the path, then it is also mobile or only the tough come into the garden 😆 What kind of thumpers do you have?Have a nice evening and Happy Ride on 🤟Elmar

      Beautiful, varied hike starting in the best-preserved medieval town of Stein am Rhein, following the Upper Rhine and then tackling the ascent to the vineyards. Above Stein auf Rhein you come to the sandstone caves, here's a tip: don't forget your flashlight, bats currently hibernate in the cave. We continue to the Wolkensteinerberg, where the abandoned Wolkenstein castle was located. Along a ridge on great hiking trails you come to the mega vantage point on Stein am Rhein and the island of Werd. We continue to Hohenklingen Castle. The castle is closed on Mondays and has a really great restaurant with a wonderful view. Inside the castle there is still the old battlement and various rooms that can be viewed free of charge.A little story about it:The stag on HohenklingenWhen the Lords of Hohenklingen once hunted on the Schienerberg, a wounded stag jumped into the castle's kennel to seek protection, where it was caught alive. A noblewoman von Hohenklingen took care of him and tended him until he was whole. The
      Hirsch became so attached to her that he accompanied her to mass in Öhningen and back to the castle every morning. Since the residents of Öhningen always let the young lady with the stag pass calmly and even granted them protection, the damsel bequeathed them
      On her death the community of Öhningen created a 114 acre forest on the Steiner Bühl, which the community still owns.
      About Stein am Rhein in particular I will talk about an eventful day on February 22nd to report.If there was still the mountain bike route 50, a fantastic round trip with around 160km through the countryside to the Hallau wine region. I did the tour in 2020 and I'm really excited. I had built in 2 nights and will do this tour again in summer 2021, whether with accommodation or a tent I'll leave that open. Pure Adventure.I wish everyone a great evening, stay healthy and fit and alert.Happy ride on 🤟

      True to the motto: I solved more problems in the saddle than in a conference room today on slightly frosty tours to Constance.The tour to the council city of Constance is always nice. From 2014 to 2018 the council anniversary was celebrated - 600 years of the Council of Constance. From the impressive cathedral it goes to the most photographed woman Constance - the Imperia. The nine-meter-high statue of the noble courtesan is a coquettish reminder of the time of the Council of Constance. At a time when the city grew from 6,000 inhabitants to over 20,000 inhabitants overnight. Between 50,000 and 70,000 participants attended the council. And that in the Middle Ages without hygiene, without drinking water supply and with a constant lack of space.At this point I could go back further and write a lot about it. As soon as the temperatures are friendlier again, I will announce an appointment - for an "unofficial" city tour by MTB, bike, bike.Little by little, I started to shiver, so that at least today I shortened the longer planned tour.I wish everyone a nice Sunday evening - stay fit and lively and healthy and have a happy ride on 🤟Elmar

      A year that has never been so special for all of us comes to an end and I think I know with many that you really want to tick it off, that's the way I feel too.I captured the great moments in my new video clip of the year in review and really had to be brief not to cut a clip for 3 hours or more. I held on for 6 minutes. You can find all clips on my YouTube channel.I look forward to your comments and our dialogue so far and to the fact that we all have a good start into the new year and how and wherever we might start a tour together.I was probably on tour for the last time this year and just say thank you to everyone!Happy Ride On 🤟
