My name is Eckart.Thank you for visiting my gallery. Since December 2019 I live in northern Germany.The name of the tiny village where my house stands is Barchel, part of association of municipalities Samtgemeinde Geestequelle, Oerel.The surrounding area is characterized by meadows, fields and forests. After a few steps you can find many well-marked hiking and biking trails that lead you through a mostly flat and varied landscape where it can come, especially in the evening hours to encounter the abundant game.If you follow the main road 71 nine kilometers to the north you reach Bremervörde. A nice place where you can do all the necessary shopping. The city is located on a lake with a beautifully landscaped park. Here you can start a short walk, a hike or a bicycle tour.
From my location you have countless opportunities to visit interesting cities and landscapes. The easiest way is by car. The great cities of Hamburg, Bremen, Bremerhaven, Cuxhaven, Stade and Buxtehude can be reached completely stress-free with a fast connection from the train station in Bremervörde. If you are interested in art you should not miss to visit the artist village of Worpswede, which is known beyond the borders. The historic Moorexpress rail link takes you there during the season. In Barchel there is a stop where you can get on. You may be a nature lover. In this case a visit to the UNESCO “World Heritage Site Wattenmer” is recommended. A part of it can be reached with a short excursion to Cuxhaven. A little further away is a trip to the “Lüneburger Heide” with its remarkable unic landscape and the city of Lüneburg.
