we took a walk today to the district Hasten and to the outskirts of Remscheid. Hasten is one of the oldest districts of the town, dwellings and mostly old factories close together. This district was not destroyed in World War II, so most of the old houses remained.
Hasten is surrounded by woodland. We saw a hedge of holly, covered with snow. I liked it very much, although it'l looking a little bit christmassy.
Isn't this house pretty?
We than went to pick up Katja's friend who wanted to walk with us. She is living in a district close to Hasten, it is called Rath, a housing area with mostly one-family-homes and terraced houses. From here you can see Hasten again, in the background.
From here we went into the forrest. First we had to cross a road in the valley, than we had to walk uphill again.
Katja told us that in summer many horses are grazing on these pastures. In the background you can see the hill with the town centre, unmistable the silhouette with the water tower and the tower of the town hall.
We were walking along the border of the neighbour town Wuppertal. Hidden in the forrest are a few more small hamlets like this.
We had so much fun in the snow!
On the way back it started to snow again. Can you see it?
Back home we all had to sit on the heating because our bums were wet
