Hallo lieber Gast

Hallo lieber Gast, willkommen in den klaren Weiten im Norden Deutschlands, begleite mich auf meinen Pfaden durch die Natur, Ausflügen und Reisen, auf der Suche nach Ruhe und Anregung. Entdecke mit mir Linien und Freiräumen, die die Perspektiven, die Vielfalt der Farben und Formen dieser Welt und unserer Natur uns bieten und genieße Momente der Nachdenklichkeit, Poesie und philosophischen Worte großer Dichter und Denker, manchmal auch meine eigenen lyrischen Texte dazu.

Schön, dass Du Dir die Zeit genommen hast - wunderbar, Dich hier zur wissen!

" Ich muss mich ganz im Stillen mit meiner Außenwelt reiben,. sonst werde ich untauglich für die Welt."

Sylt Days - 3

We've had such luck with the weather. Against all forecasts it was wonderfully sunny, spring-like, although very windy. We decided to visit the lovely village of Keitum with it's many old Captain's Houses. 

At Keitum too it wasn't crowded and we spent a lot of time walking the small streets up and down, enjoying the gorgeous old buildings and the lovely Spring gardens. 

The former captain's village of Keitum is considered the most beautiful place on Sylt.

In this photo I love the shadows too. This building was built 1786

Behind every corner is a new very old beautiful house with a lovely garden to see. 

Thousand and thousands of crocuses, muscari, snowdrops, and daffodils are in full bloom.

 The first blooms of spring always make my heart sing.

The 200 to 300 year old houses and the typical Frisian walls made of field stones that surround the properties are characteristic of the town located on the mudflat side of the island. 

The Altfriesisches Haus is located on the Keitumer Watt. The former house of the teacher and chronicler Christian Peter Hansen was built in 1739 and represents the typical construction of that time. It is one of the few captain's houses that can still be viewed from the inside. The furnishings have largely been preserved, so you can imagine yourself back in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The historic properties are reminiscent of a time when Sylt was not yet a holiday island, but the islanders lived primarily from whaling.
