To be honest, that is a question I never had until I visited the World Heritage region Wartburg-Hainich. I had heard of places like the Greenwich meridian or of traditions that come with crossing the equator or the arctic circle. Do they do something like that in the middle of Germany, too?
I have always wanted to see a canopy path. Fortunately, I had the chance to experience one as part of a PR trip to the world heritage region Wartburg-Hainich.
To be completely honest, the thought of visiting Papenburg hadn’t crossed my mind at all. But I really wanted to see the Meyer Shipyard which is in Papenburg. We quickly settled on a date for the shipyard tour and booked a hotel. During the planning of the trip, we discovered that the new AIDAnova was to be christened on that weekend followed by a big concert at the shipyard the day after. So we went a little early to be able to attend the concert.
The Meyer Shipyard in Papenburg is probably the most popular tourist destination in the city. We had a visit to the shipyard on our bucket list for quite some time. And when that great package deal that included a hotel and a guided tour came along, we went for it.
Have you ever been on a typical Berlin boat tour?
Berlin is a city of contrasts. Modern buildings meet tranquil parks and waterways. Therefore, the city absolutely lends itself to be discovered by boat.
The Spandau Lock is in Berlin, in the district Spandau. It helps ships to cross from the Lower Havel (Untere Havel) into the Upper Havel (Obere Havel) despite their different water levels.
