There are some efforts that cannot be praised enough. To me, animal protection and rescue is such an effort. Therefore, I was more than curious to learn how a seal rescue centre is run. A little while ago we visited the seal rescue centre Friedrichskoog.
I went to Heligoland before, as a teenager with my field hockey team. I don’t remember too much from that trip so it was about time to boost my memory and go on a day trip to the island in the North Sea.
Heligoland is about 40 kilometres away from mainland Germany in the German Beigh and is part of the state of Schleswig-Holstein. Only some 1500 people live on the island but countless tourists are ferried over on many ships during the summer month
One weekend every year, I travel with a group of friends. After we had already travelled to Hamburg and Prague in the previous years, we picked Lübeck as our next destination. Arrival: Saturday morning, departure: Sunday afternoon. A short trip to Lübeck.
A short trip to the north of Germany brought us to Flensburg. Of course, this also had to include a beer tasting to try Flensburg’s beers. Flensburg’s brewery is not far from the old town. Beers have been brewed here since 1888.
A walk around the harbour of Flensburg will also take you to the area that is known as the Museum Harbour. Although this was our second trip to this place we still discovered many new things all around seafaring.
A weekend in Kiel is too short to see everything. We made a list of places that we really wanted to see on our first visit to Kiel. But we also reserved some time to just be and enjoy the view of the Firth of Kiel.
