      What began as a small wooden fortress at the confluence of the Elbe and Alster 1200 years ago has become one of the richest cities in Europe: Hamburg, formerly Hammaburg. How the Hamburgers got so far, the route explores. It begins on the hill of early medieval Mellingburg, at the Mellingburger lock today, follows an ancient trade route through the Alster Valley and happens in the city center several places that were relevant for Hamburg's rise. ZEIT Wissen has questioned historians and archaeologists about it, and the interviews with them are linked to various highlights in the city. The hike can easily be spread over two days: on the first day from the Mellingburger Schleuse to the Jungfernstieg, on the second day from the Jungfernstieg to the Elbphilharmonie. A trip to the Museum of Hamburg History, which is located on the second part of the route, you should definitely plan - there are excellent city models from different eras.

      In Weimar, the splendor and misery of German history are as close together as in few places. At the end of the eighteenth century, German classical music began to rise in literature and philosophy, which earned the Germans the reputation of poets and thinkers. In the disorganized Weimar Republic, the catastrophe that culminated in the Holocaust, which also took place in Buchenwald Concentration Camp, came to a head.The third route leads to the local memorial. From the station, there is a ten-kilometer path on the route of the former Buchenwaldbahn. A freight car on a blue and white striped ground is the signet of today's walk to the concentration camp. You can shorten the route if you take bus 6 to the Obelisk and from there walk for four kilometers to the memorial.

In the disorganized Weimar Republic, the catastrophe that culminated in the Holocaust, which also took place in Buchenwald Concentration Camp, came to a head.The second route is dedicated to the architect Henry Van de Velde. It leads from the city center to the house Hohe Pappeln (who wants to can abbreviate the route by bus 1). From there to Haus Am Horn you should definitely walk through the beautiful park on the Ilm hike (takes about half an hour). A long weekend is enough for the three hikes. As reading is Annette Seemann's book »Weimar. A travel companion «(Insel Verlag) to recommend.

      After Maasbüll, the North Frisian Railway Company leaves Niebüll (neg-niebuell.de). The land we are going through leads us along a long wall between meadows and moats. We are going to meet the strong west wind. To the east lies the Maasbüller Herrenkoog, in the west the Kleiseerkoog. The houses are at our feet. Mountain and valley in Nordfriesland. The mountains: dikes. The valleys: Köge, that is marshland, which is enclosed by dikes, so that in times of storm no seawater penetrates to the residential buildings.

      The abrupt transition from the lowlands to the Alps makes the tremendous happenings visible, to which the entire Alps owe their existence: Immediately behind the "Bergstüberl" tavern, the first alpine slope shoots up from the ground and, looking at the plate tectonics, hits Africa on Europe. An epic event that continues to this day and lets the Alps grow by about a millimeter per year: whole deep-sea women, reefs, sediments come up with it. The resulting clutter of layers, which has been particularly wild here on the northern edge of the Alps, has given generations of geologists puzzles and is still the subject of research. The Potsdam Potsdam Geo Research Center has recently begun a re-measurement of the Alps - it is unclear what exactly is moving in which direction, it is said.
