  Happy Easter

I wish my readers a Happy Easter.

There is not much in the way of spring outside, so I picked some photos from the spring tour I did last year, when nature was already wearing a veil of fresh verdant.

Spring at the Trave river in Lübeck

A nice way to see some beautiful vistas of Lübeck is a boat tour on the rivers and canals surrounding the old town.

The Slavic open air museum in Gross-Raden

I visited the open air museum in Gross-Raden (near Schwerin) which shows a reconstructed Slavic settlement with ringwall fort twice, in spring and in autumn. It is a fun place to explore and I did not have enough time during the first visit.

The Viking open air museum in Haithabu in Schleswig

The trading settlement of Haithabu / Hedeby was even larger, but the open air museum covers only a small part of the area. The wall around the settlement still exists for the most part, and that is where you can see how large the place once was.

Lambs in the open air museum Gross-Raden

We can't have an Easter post without some easter lambs now, can we? :-)

Flensburg Firth

And finally another photo of blue, sparkling water. The Flensburg Firth on a spring afternoon.

Happy Easter, Gabriele :-) Lovely photos :-)

 
Happy Easter, Gabrielle!
Is it bad that I look at sheep as yarn on the hoof??
 
Happy Easter, Gabriele!
 
Auf solche Osterlämmer hatte ich während unseres Osterausflugs nach Bayern auch gehofft. Leider hat uns da der Regen einen ziemlichen Streich gespielt. Wir waren also gar nicht erst auf der Suche nach Osterlämmern. Deine hier sind mir dann jetzt doch ein kleiner Trost, auch wenn ich sie jetzt erst bei Dir entdeckt habe :-D
Lieber Grüße von der Silberdistel

The Lost Fort is a blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK and other places, with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes. You may also find the odd essay about geology or Mediaeval literature.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
