Darkness enveloped the room I shared with precious granddaughter Annalise, but the call of my other half woke my sleepy body and at 4:45am I was up and running. All prepared and ready to go when the cab arrived to take me to Heathrow for the flight to Hanover, Germany! Arriving in Hanover, I was met by the lovely Henry and Werner (the husband of Lydia who is Henry's cousin). Werner took us back to their place in Braunschweig ...
Lots of rain was predicted (and fell) this morning, and I needed to let my knee rest from the hike, so I slept late.
Did not feel like going to nearby caves either...
Walked around Quedlinburg some more, discovered that a flea market was on (I had wondered what all the campers and caravans were doing on that field the day before).
Bought some nice vintage stuff at that flea market.
Cute liquor glasses ...
... from Quedlinburg) and then hiked on the top of the ridge for about 3-4 km on that Teufelsmauer. A bit taxing for my knee in parts but I just took it slowly, and a little bit scary in some parts with deep drops right next to the stone or mud paths. But that also gave it an extra thrill.
What I also liked it was quite varied in scenery and paths. Very impressive.
Rain was predicted.
I walked around all the little hidden streets of Quedlinburg, climbed a watchtower, had coffee at a cute cafe.
Walked around some more at random and through parts I had not seen yet.
It started to rain, so I sat in a cafe for an hour or so reading and having big beer. Very pleasant and leisurely day, waiting for a dry day to do another forest / mountain hike. ...
... confusing where you should buy tickets and I thought it wouldn't be far to walk and I could do with the exercise after drinking so many milk coffees and beers. :-) But the climb was very steep and pretty taxing.
But it was worth it, it's a beautiful castle, with loads of rooms all decorated with many details of various ages, and explanations.
