Nun ja, der Weg ist das Ziel. Draußen in der Natur unterwegs zu sein, ist für mich tatsächlich so etwas wie Erfüllung; egal ob per Pedes oder auf dem Bike.

The good news: the continuous rain actually stopped at some point and disappeared - wherever ... and then something like a pale sun could really be seen in the sky.So I walked to the fjord and the Bülk lighthouse.The bad news: the tower and the adjoining bistro are closed; Monday 🙈. Okay, back again. But in Strande a fish sandwich had to believe in it to lure the endorphins back out of the fruity corner. 🙃Still a nice little round ...

With the freshening wind the sky tore open, the sun showed up and you could marvel at a grandiose cloud cinema.The best conditions for hiking near the Schleimünde, because there is always a stiff breeze blowing there and the clear air enables a fantastic view. Those interested in ornithology can also discover rare specimens in the bird sanctuary of the same name.I started in the small fishing village of Maasholm on the southern tip of the former island of Oehe. Until the 20th century only fishermen lived here, but then it increasingly turned into a leisure harbor for sailors and deep-sea anglers. There is still a fishing fleet here. The village is very picturesque and offers plenty of opportunities to stop off with numerous fish restaurants.The round is very varied and offers beautiful landscapes and views.I would also like to recommend the Maasholm Nature Experience Center, which is practically on the way.In the end, of course, the obligatory fish 🐟 in the port of Maasholm was a must.Delicious 😋

After the thick fog had finally cleared, it became a beautiful, late summer-like autumn day, which literally invited to cruise.
Just set off and continue on through the beautiful landscape in the glorious autumn sun. This is how biking is fun.To be continued 🚴💨

For today I had decided to visit the newly designed Viking Museum in Haithabu. This can be ideally combined with a circumnavigation of the Haddebyer and Selker Noores, especially on such a beautiful day as today.The Haddebyer Noor and the view over the quiet Schlei over to Schleswig - dominated by the venerable cathedral - are awesome! But that also applies to the wider area.The path starts on the B 76 and meanders - mostly in the form of small single trails - in sometimes wild turns along the edge of the eastern steep bank along the Haddebyer Noors.After passing Selk, you reach the west side of the water and approach Haithabu. The first thing you see of it is the mighty rampart that surrounded the city in a semicircle and protected it from enemies and is part of the "Danewerk", a fortification that the Danish kings pulled almost across Schleswig-Holstein.Different cultures collided here: Vikings (here Danes), Slavs, Saxons and Franks. Haithabu with its port was one of the most important trading centers in Northern Europe from the 9th to the 11th century and all of the aforementioned peoples and also Frisians, Swedes and Norwegians lived there in harmony.Despite all the fortifications, the Slavs finally succeeded in 1066 in almost completely devastating the city. The successor settlement arose on the opposite bank of the Schlei and was the nucleus of today's Schleswig.Well - and then there was nothing with the museum: jam packed and long queues of people waiting at the entrance (holiday season !!). A little tricky, I moved on and instead stopped at Odin's; You can no longer find gods there, but instead find typical regional dishes and drinks and a farm shop; I can highly recommend it.The museum is open all year round and also offers the opportunity to see life back then live and in color, since - at least in the summer months - Vikings live and work there.All in all, it was a wonderful day with many great impressions.

Since I was in Kiel anyway, it made sense to take a quick look at Schilksee and Strande, especially with this wonderful weather.And indeed: in the soft autumn light, even the concrete block of the Olympiazentrum (built in 1972) developed something like Mediterranean charm.And while numerous boat owners in the marinas at Strande and Schilksee had to do with hoisting their boats out of the water and taking them to winter storage, I was able to enjoy delicious matjes and a cold beer 🍺 in the beautiful sun and a big cloud cinema.This is how vacation works! 😎👍

I had imagined it to be a little different! The plan went like this: walk nicely through the burial forest and then enjoy the view of the bay along the cliffs and later down on the beach.Well, but shit happens! Obviously the storm of 23.09. in connection with the heavy rains led to a number of trees being torn from the cliffs. In the end, there was only a huge hole left of the single trail I wanted to use to descend, torn power cables peeked out of the earth and crackled flashes of lightning. Absolutely impassable and also life-threatening!This then led to the fact that I climbed the higher areas of the cliff in order to enter the beach in another place - just as adventurously. I then took the shortest route in the direction of Kiekut, because regardless of the steady churning of the cliffs, the likelihood of falling, also from other trees, should be quite high due to the softened soil.For the time being, I would advise against going to this stretch of coast; better is this...
