Default Re: Berlin or Dust - I went for the Dust!

Mission accomplished!
A dream came true.

Two Austrians in a Strandkorb on the beach of Heringsdorf on the isle of Usedom!

We did it.

There is nothing more to say.





You can rent these Beach chairs.




We toasted on our journey



........and talked to the entrepreneur. He said it is hard work to be on the beach in summer and rent beach chairs. And don't forget the hard winter work when you are in your shag and repair the chairs.

Yes mate, life can be a drag!



As I said we were in Heringsdorf again. We stayed the night in this nice Hotel Fortuna. If you ever come to this place try to stay in this family run hotel.

This time we wanted to see it from the island.



This is it in former times.



There are some folks who want to see a railway running again on the old tracks. For sure a technical burner for this touristic place. But money is tight. The black and white line is served by a touristic train the red/white is a dream!

The last stop on the way south was the old ship lift (Schiffshebewerk) of Niederfinow. A masterpiece of engineering finished 1934.
Here in Niederfinow the Oder-Havel-Canal coming from Berlin wants to meet the river Oder. But the surrounding land is 36 meters higher than the Oder river bed. So the engineers build a lift.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niederfinow_Boat_Lift


Ships are becoming bigger, so they are building a new lift right now. This is the map. It is just 22 km east of Motorway A11.

The old lift.




The old and the new lift.



Ship in the lift.



We admiring the masterpiece.



Here we split up. Each one trying to reach the own trailer. A perfect trip came to an end.

Outside a rally rushed by. The oldtimers were on a mission they didn'stop.

Time to head for the town of Templin.

Not short of perks for a single day, eh?

Love those pics....and those old buildings!
Can't wait for September to have a first-hand look at some of those (and hopefully many others).
Beautiful stuff!!

2 Austrians to the Baltic Shores via the backroads....DELIVERED!
Well done!

Looking at all the sunshine, blue skies , T-shirts and all....what time of year were those trips? (especially the last one).

How long did it take? (one-way....4-5 days? More, less?)
Just trying to get some measure of the whole thing, something for the planning stages.

Heringsdorf and The Fortuna are marked on the maps (together with a few others of your recommendations).


Thanks for all those fantastic pics and an entertaining yarn on top!
Another "Mission Accomplished!"
