Game over for head coach Hansi Flick. When we arrived at the AOK Stadium in Wolfsburg on Sunday morning for the “Public Regeneration Session,” as it was officially titled, we had no idea that this would be Hansi Flick’s last appearance as the coach of the German national team. We only learned about it in the afternoon from the radio.
The world of art is constantly in motion. In this exciting environment, there are always emerging talents who stand out with fresh ideas and unique perspectives. The association “bskunst” has made it its mission to give these creatives a stage. Currently, an exhibition titled “Newcomer 2” is running in the foyer of the Centro Hotel. I had the opportunity to
On the Great Sassenburg Circular Route, there is a lot to discover. The over 50 km long bicycle tour passes by the moor railway in Westerbeck, through the Aller Valley Nature Reserve, and both the Tankum and Bernstein lakes are crossed. It follows along the Elbe Side Canal (ESK), passing by the Great Moor Museum near Neudorf-Platendorf. The circular route
Some things are simply reliable. Not only does Christmas come around every year. The giant water lily Victoria cruziana from Braunschweig also delights us anew each year. And then there’s the heather bloom, a special natural spectacle that captivates many people annually between early August and early September. Hooked by a visit in the year 2021 to the South Heath
Same procedure as every year? Not quite. For me, it’s actually the first visit to Victoria, the giant water lily, in the Botanical Garden of Braunschweig. “Victoria cruziana,” as its Latin name goes, is Germany’s largest tropical giant water lily, and therefore a superlative. A new Victoria House was specially built for it in 2018. Perhaps this is partly why
The wet and cold weather this summer drives us indoors. Why not make the best of it? We use the circumstances to expand our regional historical knowledge. As part of the exhibition “Goddesses of Art Nouveau,” the (Monastery) Museum Hinter Aegidien offers a lecture on “Women in the Art Nouveau Sanatorium” Dr. Barner 1900-1914. That sounds interesting. The very next
Champagne or sparkling water? Rain or sunshine? This year, the weather app or, more precisely, the rain radar decides where the weekend getaway is headed. With the changeable climate, it’s not easy to estimate how long the next rain gap will last. Often, the raincoat is closer than the swimsuit. So, we gather all our courage and just set off.
„ is a poignant book that captivates from the very beginning. Sheyda’s profound opening statement, that she was born into captivity, adds a deeper meaning to the story, emphasizing her sense of unfreedom and the struggles that accompany her throughout her life. The novel showcases Sheyda’s birthday on April 1, 1979, the same day the Islamic Republic of Iran was
The ordinary people are back in Brunswieck. It’s last visit in the Lion City dates back to the year 2017. Those deceptively real-looking figures made of concrete are a great asset. Art in public spaces innervates the city centre. For me the characters are fun. Whether it is the „Sofagruppe“ on the Altstadtmarkt, or the „Tafel“ on the Schlossvorplatz. Sometimes
The “Wonder of Lengede” instantly reminds me on the namesake mine disaster on 1963 and the wondrously rescue of eleven pitmen after fourteen days. But there is more to the place. Upon hiking in that area there is potential to find more. However Lengede’s background of mining is definitely a topic here. Admittedly if it had not been for a
