Today the district office center was on my appointment slip. There too early and made a little dangle through the Gängeviertel. In view of the abundance of motifs, you just have to keep an eye on the time, because in the office you currently have to go through two security stations "slightly overwhelmed with the authorization of the visitors". One wonders if you should show your boarding pass right away got to? In the end, the check-in worked out 🙂

Just wanted to count cows for a moment ... one, two, all there ✅ ... to have a look if the goats have everything a goat needs. Pats were missing, at least they were requested.
That two kingfishers chase across the ponds in the middle of the day was really heavenly. Haven't seen any in a long time. I'm totally flashed, cool ❄️🐦

Again quickly into the mudflats before the summer holidays contribute to the migration of peoples 😄. Dream weather and wonderfully empty until the afternoon.
And that the newly graduated high school student wanted to accompany his proud parents made the day perfect.

The Westergellersen water nature trail was set up in 2010 and extends over a distance of approx. 16 km, including along the Brünbach from its source to the mouth of the Luhe.
Display boards along the way provide information on the topic of water, from rainwater use to natural forests and ecosystems to water supply for residents.Unfortunately we found out today that not all signposts are there anymore. But we had already chosen the route beforehand.The stairwell built in 1603 is also on the way, it was used as a shelter for cattle until mid-1980, until it was restored with great effort in 1984.
The building material of the storage facility comes from the local environment: the solid timber frame is made of oak from Eckersfeld, the typical landscape tree of Lower Saxony, as are the exterior stairs and the trapezoidal planks of the infill.
The roof is thatched from the former bog below the Schilsberg and covered with sods from the Westergellerser Heide.

Today we hiked the Westergellerser water trail in reverse order. Slightly shortened and against the current 🐟 🌊.
But if it fits, hike it the right way next weekend, because it is well signposted. So it makes sense the other way around.
But this smaller round is also varied and instructive. Many display boards, almost all of which point to highlights not yet worked out and plenty of seating.

Quickly put on your hiking shoes before the announced storm and head for the Landwehr. This time we shortened the lap a bit, because there was already a lot of grumbling around us. Almost stayed dry.The Alte Landwehr was built from 1397 to 1406 about 4 kilometers west of the city gates of Lüneburg. The Landwehr consisted of up to five earth walls, which were separated by moats up to two meters deep. Starting at the Ilmenau near the Goseburg in Lüneburg, the Landwehr initially led south of Bardowick westwards to the area of Vögelsen. Here it bent south and led west past Reppenstedt, from there we started to the Hasenburger Bach.
From then on it ran along the dammed up water to the red lock on the llmenau. Watchtowers were installed at the checkpoints south of Bardowick and at Reppenstedt, and another watchtower on the Hasenburger Bach was preserved between 1450 and 1480.I don't know exactly whether the Königsweg at the gates of Lüneburg is Via Regia, the salt road to Mölln. However, it is obvious.

Today hike the city, Rothenburgsort and Moorfleet.
We did not know the water art so far, but will definitely come again when it is open to visitors again.The filter system was decommissioned in 1990 and the 22 water basins with their slide houses were left to nature. A few years ago, a small part of the site was opened to the public. Most of the area is still fenced and reserved for nature and animals. The valve houses can therefore only be inspected up close during opening hours (Tue-Sun in April-October 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., November-March 10 a.m. to 5 p.m .; info: wasserkunst-hamburg.de). Otherwise you have a nice view of the area from the opposite dike.
The island of Kaltehofe is practically car-free, as the cars can only drive to the water park's parking lot.

Started today from Bienenbüttel with a great varied round. It's always great along the Ilmenau, but the NSG Diecksbeck incident was impressive.In the 15th - 19th centuries, the Lüneburgers used the Diecksbach as an extension of the New Landwehr. The water was dammed up to large ponds with dams, so that no moving trader could cross the stream unhindered. Instead, one had to drive into Lüneburg via special, toll roads. In the Diecksbeck NSG, the old dams and ponds are to be preserved as part of the “Lüneburg Landwehr” cultural monument.

Along the Lopau, the ponds and the abandoned village of Lopau it is fantastic. Nothing going on early in the morning, later on, when the weather is nice, there is plenty to do on the narrow paths.Sometimes you believe yourself in Canada and have to face wanderlust. Small consolation, no jet lag and no ever long day of travel.Be sure to load the tour beforehand, because NO NET iegt predominates here
