I love the TV pictures of the Brocken, when you see the storm sweeping over the mountain top and people trying to move forward. For that reason alone, it was clear to me relatively quickly that if I’m in the Harz, I have to go to the Brocken.
“In autumn to one of the East Frisian Islands? Why not! Autumn by the sea can be beautiful, you just need the right clothes and you can have a wonderful time by the sea.” – That, or something like it, is what I thought when I received the offer to go to Wangerooge in October.
At the market of Osnabrück is probably the most important building of the city, the city hall Osnabrück. Close to it stands the current registry office (former scales house) and St. Mary’s Church.
If you want to cook for yourself on Wangerooge, not just in your holiday flat, or not just try the food in your own hotel, you will find some nice restaurants and cafés to eat in on Wangerooge.
Cycling in Hannover is a wonderful way to explore the city. We got on the hotel’s rental bikes and explored Green Hannover.
