      There was once...
      (no, today there is no fairy tale! 😲😒🤣)
      ... the Dresden Elbe Valley, which from 2004 was allowed to bear the title of "World Heritage Site". In 2009, however, the UNESCO recognized this again.
      What happened?
      Our new "Waldschlösschenbrücke" was the bone of contention.
      Irreversible, cutting up the Elbe valley and thus destroying the landscape, UNESCO called the urgently needed crossing of the Elbe. Unfortunately, the city, the Free State of Saxony and the World Heritage Committee could not come to an agreement and so it happened that not only the Dresden Elbe Valley title, but also Dresden the 13 million of the funding program for German World Heritage sites that had been applied for.
      You can find a very informative article on this here: walk across the bridge was to bridge the gap while waiting for treatment for a snowboard accident.
      Ouch. 🙈
      Take good care of yourself! 🙋🏻‍♀️

      Today 2 cyclists finally spotted the long-sought mouse in the Rabenauer Stuhlbrunnen!
      The exciting story of the hidden mouse in / on the fountain, which was restored in 2001 and on whose edge bronzes by the sculptor Peter Fritzsche and the art foundry Gebrüder Ihle symbolize the simple life of the Rabenau chair makers, now has its happy ending! *
      😉🤭 * Editor's note:
      We thank Stanley 01705, the initiator of this crazy story, as well as him and Matthias for his tip-giving photos!
      2. 🙋🏻‍♀️🤭More information about the Maus and Rabenau in Tour I.:
      So I was not lost in the snowstorm, as I feared beforehand, still frozen to death, still looking madly or lying with lumbago at the edge of the well 🤣🤣🤣 ..

      The time when Dresden was called "the valley of the unsuspecting" is long, long gone. Dresden is still in the valley and there are many beautiful points where you can look down on the capital of Saxony. After all, my beautiful hometown extends over 328 square kilometers. Our photos were taken today on the southern mountain ranges of the eastern Erzgebirge foothills. In a nutshell, on the southern outskirts 🤭😉, in Bannewitz.
      And since it is well known that 7000 steps are the new 10 000🤣, we can look into the next box of Hallor balls 😉 with a clear conscience .. 🤭🙋🏻‍♀️

      🤣Love is to eat the chocolate alone so that the partner does not get fat ..🤣Chocolate doesn't solve any problems. But an apple doesn't do that either ...🤣Chocolate is low in vitamins. That's why you have to eat so much of it ..🤣This morning I said to myself: Lisa, from today you won't eat chocolate anymore! Fortunately my name is not Lisa ...🤣Imagine you have Ferrero kisses and no 5 friends to give one to. Fooo sad. Fooo fffade ...🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣You have to take things as they come, celebrate festivals as they come and implement insider tips dutifully. 🤣
      Therefore: Thank you Reni, it was a very interesting visit to the chocolate museum at Halloren in Halle!
      And our car a tiny, tiny bit (haha) chocolatier than on the outward journey!
      And everyone who now rolls 👀:
      You don't gain weight .... on ... Christmas, but between Christmas! 😁
      Merry Christmas everyone!

      Unfortunately I don't have a photo for you today"No, we're not here with Heidi Klum."But there is really no photo of the Nebra Sky Disc, at least not an original one (from me).
      😔📸🚫 Photography is prohibited on the ground floor of the State Museum for Prehistory in Halle. With the Nebra Sky Disc and other loans, there is currently a comprehensive exhibition from the era in which the Sky Disc was manufactured and used.
      Since I don't want to bore you with meter-long information here:
      Who cares: out :
      Monday's closing day!
      From February 2022, the Sky Disc will be on display in the British Museum in London for around 4 months.
      The State Museum of Prehistory is of little interest to children. One would rather go with them to the place where they were found, to Nebra's Ark.
      There is no hike today either.
      We canceled it because of a great tip yesterday (thanks Reni!) ... and moved it inside. To the Halloren Chocolate Museum!
      So, dear chocolate friends 🤣, either watch the next tour ... 🤭or rather not🤣!
      By the way, we were in the museum for over 2 hours. I don't know what Komoot always measures indoors.

      Hallor balls?
      Every East German knows immediately what I'm talking about. 😉😋
      In Bavaria z. B., however, they are largely unknown. (🤣 Experience from summer vacation)
      By the way, the emphasis is on: o, because "Hall" was the Middle High German name for salt. The Hallorenkugel got its name from the former salt workers (the Halloren), because it resembles the silver buttons of their costume. Salt production goes back to the Bronze Age here.
      In Halle, the salt was obtained by boiling the water containing brine from the 4 fountains around the Hallmarkt.
      In 1952, the GDR's first "people's praline" was created. However, it was hardly available for purchase unless you lived in Halle or Berlin.
      I have to admit that the connection between Hallorenkugeln and Halle was completely unknown to me until my first visit to Halle.
      So what drew us to Halle today? No, not just the Hallor balls. .🤣 You can find them in almost every supermarket today. 😊
      An article about the Nebra Sky Disc! She's going to England next year, so she'll have a quick visit to the museum tomorrow. Coincidentally, I also saw some Komootern that a Christmas market was taking place in Halle (Saxony - Anhalt!). So what else had to be done this year ???
      Drive quickly from Saxony to Saxony-Anhalt and visit Halle!
      Halle has a really nice market square, where now at Christmas time (2G), oh how nice, little booths with mostly delicacies spoil the visitors.
      Not surprising, the pictures of the evening stroll (same GPS coordinates) appear between those of the day, but I did not want to do without them.
      🎼🎶Merry Christmas everywhere, it sounds through the air ...
      and how it smells 🙈😋😇🤭🙋🏻‍♀️ Have a nice Christmas time to all of you!

      Short and sweet? :
      A nice visit to the sales exhibition of the incense candle manufacturer Knox in the idyllic village of Grund, with a hike that is not recommended. Why?
      Paths where there are none (crossing a river) and the viewpoint shown? Completely dangerous! So: just don't do it!
      In the highlight: Knox .. are definitely hiking suggestions.
      But now Christmas is the time of fairy tales and stories and if you like, 😊 come with me on the trip ..
      When snowmen travel.
      (🤭A fairy tale, freely told ... 😉by me.)Once upon a time, a long, long time ago .... in a small house on the outskirts of a big city, not only the landlord and his wife lived, but also many other beautiful, large and small things that were lovingly made by her.
      So are many funny little fellows⛄. Some of the kids smoked and some could be put a light in.
      Now it happened at Christmas time that one night a great whispering and discussion could be heard.
      You know, as ⛄ Knuti said to all the others, that the mighty goblin "Corona" is up to mischief. Yes, yes ... of course ... it came from all sides. Because of this monster, we are not allowed to drive back and forth across the country in a magic sledge and cannot find a new home! Oh dear, oh dear ... it echoed through the workshop.
      Little Olaf in particular had doubts. Will people now forget the magic of Christmas?
      But no, Olaf, said ⛄Knuti!
      You don't need to worry, people never forget their love for Christmas and their beautiful things!
      Watch out! Tomorrow mom and dad are going to Knox in their magic sled. You're a smoking snowman, you will see there, people do not forget us!
      And so it happened. The next morning Knuti and Olaf hid in the magic sled and since Mama Töpferin looked in her magic book called Handy, no one noticed the other secret travelers. When they arrived at Knox, they looked curiously out of their hiding place, the backpack. And you know what they saw, don't you?
      No, no goblin can make us forget the magic of the Christmas season!Happy, knowing that nothing and nobody will ever be forgotten, Knuti and Olaf told everyone else about their visit to Knox at home.
      Now the night is again in the workshop. But not a worried, but a peaceful silence.
      And if they don't ... 🤔😉, then ... they are still alive 🤣and will get a new home next year! 🤭😊😇

      Wait a minute ... weren't we there?
      Yeah, right, but ... today it was supposed to be a walk through the Dresdner Heide through the Mordgrund. Should.
      Father Frost, however, meant it too well, so that we quickly left the frozen forest paths out of concern for the 😉 old bones.
      Sisters, Degele spring and the story of the murder reason unfortunately have to wait.
      Instead it was said: another way to the roof of Dresden, the restaurant Luisenhof. Well, there wasn't much to see of Dresden either, it sank in the winter fog. But yummy, yummy, the little delicacies ..
      However, the most beautiful villas in Dresden's Loschwitz / Weißer Hirsch district were on view. Each different and each worth seeing.
      😉🤣 In the next life I will have to do something differently ..🤣

      Loschwitz, the place of the rich and beautiful ..
      Yes, that's how history writes it.
      Noble and wealthy townspeople as well as artists owned (and own) their villas on the coveted Loschwitz Elbe slopes in Dresden.
      But what else does the story tell?
      The whole area used to be a wine-growing region, like Radebeul. Imaginable?
      Yes, yes.
      However, the vineyards were also in great demand as summer and weekend homes, and when phylloxera made viticulture unprofitable in 1887, vintners quickly turned into building land for villas and country houses.
      Under :
      You can find foray no. 2: "Tradition and villas on the Elbe slope in Loschwitz", our recommended walk today.
      The observation platform and museum of the mountain station of the suspension railway are unfortunately currently closed.
      Buy TICKETS for ascent and descent. They apply to both! Railways (i.e. suspension or funicular), but of course only on the respective day.
