Remscheid, Germany - 11th August 2009
we took a walk today in the outskirts of Remscheid. The city centre is situated on a hill. This hill is quite steep. The municipal area is large and the several districts are surrounded by woodland or also farmland.
The first photos are taken a few hundreds meter apart from my current home.
This is the district Hasten, one of the oldest districts in the municipal area. You can see lots of those typical old houses here. They are often timer-framed houses or covered with slate. The usually have green shutters. A fun fair will take place here next weekend, that's why the street is decoreated.
We walked downhill for a while and reached the bottom of the valley. A creek is running through the valley. In ancient times industrialization began here. Remscheid is famous for its tool-producing industry. In the valley you can find many old factory buildings, in many of them work is still done.
On the following photo you can see the city centre in the distance. You can see the two towers of the city hall and the water tower. We are living only a few minutes by foot from there.
You can see that the weather is not good, it was even raining for a few minutes.
We walked through a rural district than.
In about two or three weeks they will be ripe. Katja told us that she usually makes a fantastic blackberry liqueur.
This is a special school, a "nature-school". You can learn a lot about plants and animals here, they have a school-garden for example with herbs and different flowers and trees, also fruit trees. Regular schools often go here for a week or two with the pupils. This nature-school is also offering lessons for adults.
We went back home than. Katja chose a path through the municipal park. Oh dear, it is steep again - have a look!
Here you can see it even better.
I was glad when we reached our home. My feet were aching. I'm afraid I am not used to take such long walks.
