one of the most recognizable houses of #quedlinburg is probably the boulevard café next to the market square. _ the town wall around the city was built in 1330 and has been preserved since then. It means the authentic middle ages urban layout has hardly changed in the 700 years that have passed.

themodernleper

find your place in #quedlinburg. _ if you were going to build a movie set that looked like an old medieval town, this is what you would end up with. the maze of cobblestone streets, timber buildings peering over them and different colours everywhere.

themodernleper

getting lost in the alleys of #quedlinburg _ finally made it to this perl in the district of harz. the town of quedlinburg is known to have existed since at least the early 9th century and you can spot those historic houses around every corner. i didn’t know what to expect cause these kind of places can sometimes feel a little touristy and like a setting but the UNESCO world heritage hasn’t lost its charm and native vibe yet. #whpgoingplaces

cherry blossom overload. 🌸 _ with my two previous posts this basically turned into a little series. but since i skipped last year i think i might get away with it?! it‘s #thatcherryblossomagain . spring suits you very well, hamburg!

themodernleper

hamburg is a postcard. 🌸 _ probably the most picturesque place in the city in the early spring. do you have favorite spots during this season?

themodernleper

it‘s that time of the year again when you open instagram and it seems like the whole world is in bloom. 🌸 in hamburg it‘s #thatcherryblossomagain as well. _ are there any more hashtags for this blooming time of the year? ☺️

dramatic sky over #capetown. ✨ _ i didn‘t have the time for a slow shutter shot to at least try to achieve @brotherside greatness but the sky was so dramatic and beautiful that evening that i dare to share this moment anyway. _ this is the old port captain’s building at cape town’s waterfront, situated in south africa‘s oldest working harbour.

themodernleper

golden hour in #capetown. ✨ _ we didn‘t even go on the hunt for sunsets during our stay because we had more important touristy things to do - eating! of course. 😉 but the light in the evening hours is especially magical along the cape. next time we have to go on more insta-missions to capture more of those moments. _ the green point lighthouse is an operational lighthouse located on mouille point and first lit on 12 April 1824.

themodernleper

change of scenery. _ if you came here for shots of scotland - hang in there. we will be back soon-ish. 😉 in the meantime @starhamburg and i went on a holiday to south africa with our trip ending in the beautiful #capetown. didn’t think i would be back this soon again. it was a perfect getaway to skip a bit of the grey weather in hamburg for a while. _ this drone shot shows the majestic #lionshead which guards the city next to table mountain and signal hill. when i’m looking at this picture i can’t believe that we actually even climbed on top. definitely one of the highlights of the trip!

themodernleper

a few more impressions of aberdeenshire. _ especially the coastline around the slains castle and the bullers of buchan left us very impressed, so much so that we hope to return very soon! _ i‘m currently on a holiday basically on the other end of the world. hope to maybe share some of it soon. ☀️

themodernleper

that old beauty in old aberdeen. _ old aberdeen was one of the most impressive parts of the city for us. the st. machar’s cathedral for example is the oldest building in active use in aberdeen. it was interesting to learn that it is of international artistic and architectural importance, and it is of huge significance for the history of scotland. _ #visitabdn #scotlandisnow #beautifulabdn

themodernleper

the portal into medieval times. _ at least that’s what it felt like a bit. the impressive powis gate was pretty much the first thing that caught our eyes on our walk through old aberdeen. they were built in 1834 by hugh fraser leslie of powis, the owner of an estate which formerly lay behind them. _ #visitabdn #beautifulabdn #scotlandisnow || anzeige

themodernleper

can you spot @starhamburg in this picture? you can use him as scale for the stunning architecture of the marischal college, which is said to be the second biggest granite building in the world. _ since 2011 it has acted as the headquarters of aberdeen city council. however, the building was constructed for and is on long-term lease from the university of aberdeen which still uses parts of the building to house a museum and for ceremonial events. _ #beautifulabdn #visitabdn #scotlandisnow

themodernleper

anzeige || #footdee - or fittie as it‘s pronounced by locals - is a charming former fishing community along the beach front of aberdeen. it really felt a bit like stepping back in time when we passed the little cottages. it had such a calm and unique vibe to it. _ @visitabdn #beautifulabdn #visitabdn #scotlandisnow || ad

themodernleper

i know - this is not the usual content i post and i‘m not too good at capturing nature shots but THIS is why scotland was so high up on our travel list for so long now. we finally were able to see the stunning and rough coast line around aberdeenshire. we didn’t have too much time to explore that day which made us even more eager to visit again soon! _ slains castle is a ruined castle on the coast of cruden bay. since its construction in 1597 it has been reconstructed many times before it was giving up in 1925. it is also said to be the inspiration for the setting of the tale in dracula. _ @visitabdn #beautifulabdn #visitabdn #scotlandisnow || anzeige

cobblestone love all over old aberdeen. 🖤 _ old aberdeen was originally a separate burgh and today it is effectively the main campus of the university of aberdeen. we stepped right back in time as we walked passed the historic sites of the area. _ @visitabdn #beautifulabdn #visitabdn #scotlandisnow

themodernleper

hello from scotland! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 @starhamburg and i are on a short trip to explore aberdeen and the coast of aberdeenshire. _ first thing we did was to walk around the city center and passed belmont street. i’m already loving the granite architecture and the vibe of the city. big thanks to @visitabdn for having us! || werbung/ ad _ #visitabdn #beautifulabdn #scotlandisnow

#pastelpassion in #lübeck. _ this city has about 90 doorways, alleys and courtyards so it’s quite easy to get lost and explore so many corners. _ also: can you spot the biggest cat ever? 😸

themodernleper

on top of the ever so famous #hallstatt . _ the evangelical church, which was built in 1785, is a photogenic highlight from every angle. if you‘d make it on one of the boats on the hallstätter see you’re basically able to capture it from all around.

themodernleper

cosy living in #malmö. _ i like this shot cause after my visit i also saw this house in the feed of @a_ontheroad & @dy_ellie -two of my favorite grammers living in london- and even though we’ve passed this hut individually at different times, we all noticed and took a picture of it. some might call it repetitive but it just makes me smile cause there is this community of nerds who share the same eye and passion for things. makes me still like this weird little app.

themodernleper

the cosy alleys of #bremen. _ the pretty little half-timbered houses in the schnoorviertel are dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. one version of the origin of the name may allude to the fact that the houses are lined up like pearls on a string, 'schnoor' being low german for 'string'.

themodernleper

when people match places. _ i was kind of hopelessly waiting for some snow in hamburg this year but we didn’t get lucky yet. this is a view of one of my favorite alleys in #lüneburg during a little winter stroll. _ i’ll be going on a few trips again from mid-february onwards. couldn’t be more excited to go out and explore again!

themodernleper

happy new year, everyone! ✨ _ hope you had a great start and enjoyed your new year’s eve! i’m not quite in the 'gramming-mode' yet after the holidays but i’m looking forward to the upcoming year since there are already a few trips planned. do you already have travel plans?

hamburg city view. ✨ _ i noticed that the grey, wintery months aren’t my favorite to go out and take pictures. missing the snow and more winter vibes. instead we spent the past days eating good food, having some hot wine and lots of christmas cookies. 😋

themodernleper

missing that autumn light during those grey winter evenings. ✨ _ this spot probably became one of most popular insta-hotspots in hamburg this year. it was nice to see all the different kind of edits and variations of this stunning view of the speicherstadt. does this place have a hashtag yet? 😜

themodernleper

that classic christmas shot. happy second advent everyone! ✨ _ are you in christmas mode already? unfortunately the current weather situation isn‘t too festive over here currently but i already had my first mulled wine, ate some christmas cookies thanks to @kieselle and even put some decorations up this year. so i‘m getting there. 🎄😉

themodernleper

happy st. nicholas' day from #salzburg. _ this is literally a snapshot that i took with my phone when the horse with carriage past by. but i had to post it cause for me it combines the stunning baroque architecture and the romantic old town vibe of the city perfectly. #wyndhamwonderland || press trip

themodernleper

pastel sky over #salzburg. _ on my way back to the hotel i took a little detour up on the kapuzinerberg, a little mountain on the right bank of the river salzach, where i got this view of the city. the very special sunset created this lovely light, which was difficult to capture but i hope it shows a little. ✨ #wyndhamwonderland || pressereise.

themodernleper

servus, #salzburg. 🇦🇹 _ before i got into the christmas spirit on the famous christkindl market i went for a little stroll around the old town. this is the view from the impressive catacombs which are carved into the rock of the festungsberg with a view on the st.peter’s monastery, the spiritual heart of of the city. _ thanks to @wyndhamrewardsde for the kind invitation. #WyndhamWonderland || Pressereise

themodernleper

i know, @starhamburg and i are no roamers but let me share a moment from a little walk around the stunning #gosausee. it was the perfect addition to our day after visiting the busy hallstatt. perfectly still water, fresh air, tranquility and that impressive panorama. 🏔 _ also big thanks to @beautelicieuse & @antoenia for the recommendation!

themodernleper

a postcard from #hallstatt. 🍂 _ the last one. for now. 😉 the classic view from the seafront. next time we‘re there we‘ll definitely explore the mountains around this stunningly picturesque area a little more!

themodernleper

above the roofs of #hallstatt. _ feels like a hallstatt-dedication account now. 😇 but this town is simply just too pretty from every angle.

themodernleper

on our @vanceptual trip we skipped lisbon but at least i managed to capture a tram in porto instead. 😉 don't ask @starhamburg how long it took us to take this shot though. 🙃 _ this is the front of the igreja do carmo. i posted its famous blue tile wall in my picture before. it was interesting for me to learn that the building is actually part of two churches that are separated by a very narrow house that was inhabited until the 1980's. the house was built so that the two churches would not share a common wall and to prevent any relations between the nuns.

themodernleper

those famous tiles of porto. _ the characteristic blue azulejo tiles of the igreja do carmo are pretty insta-famous by now i‘d say. the locally made tiles have been added to the church later in 1912. 💙

themodernleper

house tetris in porto. _ can you count the houses in this picture? 😜 this is a view from the ponto dom loís I of the typical houses of the ribeira district which spreads along the douro river.

themodernleper

olá porto! 🇵🇹 _ we finally made it to portugal with the van. it’s been a pleasure and quite exhausting to explore the charming porto all day today. getting lost in the small alleys, discovering those pretty backyards and eating all the food. literally: ALL the food. 😏 _ heading south along the coast again tomorrow... 🚐💨

themodernleper

passing through. 🇪🇸 _ over 2000km in the bank and almost made it to portugal. @vanceptual 🚐. good thing that it’s so easy to be spontaneous with the van - switched plans and will start our journey along the portuguese coast in porto. so excited to finally visit that city! have you ever been to portugal?

themodernleper

currently passing france on our next @vanceptual trip on route to portugal. the first 1000km in the bank and we‘re already longing for the portuguese coastlines.

themodernleper

a little bit more green in my feed lately. probably has something to do with the feeling of wanting to leave the city a bit for a while. _ this is a picture of the twin mills in the old fishermen’s village #greetsiel close to my hometown. unfortunately i won’t be visiting too soon again but getting visitors instead - feel free to wish my mom a happy early birthday @_christiane__! 😜🎈

themodernleper

the burg eltz was the last place we visited on our previous road trip. _ one of those places we didn’t plan to see but was totally worth it of course. can’t wait to be back on the road again next week! 🚐 @vanceptual

themodernleper

it’s been a rather unusual trip for me. when @turkishairlines invited me to visit the harbour city #kherson in ukraine i knew that it would be something different from the places i visited before. _ this is a picture of a cathedral of the kherson fortress. a place full of history where people come together these days in the park and historical buildings around the area. _ what impressed me the most were the people we met during our stay. learning how invested and proud the younger generation of the city is about their past and their future. people like @khers.on who are taking so much action to make a difference with lots of projects around the city like for example opening the @kers_oncafe and mixing a modern style with traditional food and interiors. it was a great experience to see and learn all that. _ | #widenyourworld | #TKmoments | Anzeige/Ad

burning sky. ✨ this insane sunset was such a surprise and just the perfect ending to our trip to #malmö. we didn’t even plan to go outside again but thanks to @kieselle and @aguynamedriadh’s late night craving for ice cream we walked right into this stunning scenery. 😉 we walked around the port, took some snapshots and enjoyed the moment. thanks again @malmotown for having us! | #makeitmalmö | #visitskane | #malmotown | Anzeige

themodernleper

tiny living. #🏠 i‘d dare to say that this is cutie probably one of the most photographed houses in #malmö. but you can try yourself to pass it in the gamla väster district and not take a picture of it - almost impossible! 😉 the old town vibe and beautiful colourful houses in this area were just right up our alley and we kept wondering what it‘s like to live in this place. | #makeitmalmö | #visitskane | #malmotown | Anzeige

themodernleper

colorful living. in the end we called this street in the lovely gamla väster neighborhood 'our alley' cause we spent so much time there trying to find some good angles to take a picture of it. this is not the perfect shot but i wanted to dedicate it at least one post in the end. 😅 | #makeitmalmö | #malmotown | #malmö | Anzeige

god morgon, #malmö! ✨ nice to see you again! this time i‘m exploring the city with @aguynamedriadh, @eskimo & @kieselle to #makeitmalmö! 🇸🇪 thanks to @malmotown we’ll be visiting the hotspots, enjoy the swedish summer and have a fika. or two. we had a great start to our day with a stunning sunrise close to the harbour before we headed out on our bikes ... | #makeitmalmö | #visitskane | #malmotown | Anzeige

#eguisheim is listed among the most beautiful of france and is built with streets arranged in concentric circles all around its castle that conjugate the past to the present. perfect place to get lost. just arrived at a different destination to explore over the weekend. feel free to follow us along on the @hansegang account as well. || werbung

the early morning light hitting the alleys of #riquewihr. finally travelling again at the end of the weekend. and two more trips coming after that. full on wanderlust. 🤗
