Default Re: Picture Book...Germany's Far North-East and North Poland

Ruegen Island...Southern Snoop

Map https://bit.ly/3dlJWT9 and https://bit.ly/2W2Idwk















This time it's across the Strela Sound to Ruegen Island via the Glewitz Ferry to spend a few hours around the southern parts of Ruegen....and some more of those plentiful dual-track and sandy dirt roads that seem to be around everywhere, like the one to the Maltzien Lighthouse.





...then the coastal track to Old Grabow... and across the fields to Zicker...





Following the small signs and curiosity satisfied.
Well and truly "gutsed" with a booty to drag home.
The Ruegener Dairy in Posewitz is one place NOT to be missed!!

Polish Baltic-Crown...Gdansk/ Danzig
Wiki: https://ishr.site/U8Up

Map https://bit.ly/3c6CueC





As near all of the Polish coast has been German for hundreds of years until 1945, much of the basic infrastructure, roads, buildings, history, signage, ports, military installations, railways etc. is German-based and either still or again bears the German names, since most of the coastal settlements and harbours are today's German holiday coast with tourism booming at significantly lower prices than along the German Baltic coast.

In short, it's a seafaring and trading city for over 1000 years that used to be swamped or sand-barred by high/ low water of the Vistula (Weichsel) river flowing through town into the Baltic Sea.
The river was ultimately re-aligned and dammed, leaving the city with many of the old waterways, canals and all its old trading and storage buildings.

Wings & Dreams...Lilienthal Museum in Anklam/ Germany
Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_Lilienthal

Map https://bit.ly/3ffrRrX





Anklam, a small town where the river Peene flows into the shallow Peenehaff, hosts an assuming, at first glance small museum of one of the Pioneers of Flight...
until one realizes that in those times there weren't wingspans of 60meters or 300 seats, but a armfull of timbersticks, some cloth and a bit of wire
in the attempt to get airborne.

Lots of original pieces, even more reproductions, early photos and a good bit of the technical thoughts on human flight at the time.

What came as a surprise was that Otto Lilienthal and his family were also businessmen, industrialists, inventors of all sorts of stuff from toys (forerunners of Lego and Meccano)
to mining equipment and well involved in politics and social + humanistic development of the general society.

Fascinating stuff!
