Verden an der Aller
Charming town, about 30 kilometers from Bremen:

Stop here for a drink in one of the many pubs and visit the impressive Dom, the Lutheran cathedral, built between the 12th and the 15th century. It’s easy to find it, given its oversized, spectacular roof. And last but not least, have a stroll in the cobbled streets…
Zoo am Meer
Literally, zoo at the sea. Head over to Bremerhaven:

This city is – and has always been – one of Germany’s most important trade ports. If you are into historical buildings, Bremerhaven has little to offer in comparison with for example Bremen. The harbor is the place to be for entertainment, with its Maritime Musuem a.o. and the Zoo am Meer. This small zoo features mainly arctic animals and has almost no bars or fences. What separates you from the animal is glass; moreover, you can see the marine animals above and below the water level.
The main stars are the polar bears, Valeska and her baby, Lale:
This is a fun and interesting place for children and adults!
Lars and I spent half a day here, taking dozes of pictures. You soon will find all the other pictures on Flickr. By the way, the entrance fee is € 7.50 for adults, a more than reasonable price.
In the afternoon, we stumbled upon this place, where the Elbe and the North Sea meet. You will find Ottendorf to the northeast of Bremerhaven.
End your day in the picturesque town of Stade:

As always, check the rates and other details at booking.com! These are some of the gems that we discovered earlier this year:
Altes Fährhaus in Cochem
Very good b&b, with a lavish breakfast and beautiful views of the Moselle. Quiet location, with restaurants nearby.
Hostel Foster in Marianske Lazne
Not a youth hostel. You can rent a room or a studio here and enjoy a good meal in the Italian restaurant, located in the basement of the same building. Our studio was very spacious and comfortable! Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures…
Panzio Hargita in Keszthely
Cozy hotel with restaurant. Great food and drinks, very friendly owners!
Gästehaus Görges in Brauneberg
Also located at the Moselle. Without any doubt, the most romantic room we have ever had! The owners know the region very well and can give you advice about excursions. Very good breakfast.Hotel Flashback: Easter Vacation As always, check the rates and other details at booking.com! These are some of the gems that we discovered earlier this year:
Everything seems to be more romantic at nighttime, like in a rooftop restaurant in Albania. Here are the other entries!
I rarely take pictures of persons, I feel a lot more comfortable photographing landscapes and animals. Anyway, while taking pictures of a market, it’s kind of impossible to ignore the persons who are shopping…
From the beginning of spring until autumn, I always have extra guests in my apartment or wherever I am staying. Unwanted guests, however: mosquitoes. I have tried many lotions, sprays, oils, etc. to keep them away from me, but nothing seems to help. They simply ignore Lars during the night and come straight towards me for their portion of blood.
This spring however, our local pharmacy sold us a…
