I wanted to experience the midsummer magic and went to Lake Siljan in Dalarna, the place-to-be to celebrate midsummer in a traditional way.
A Dalahorse is a wooden statue of a horse which is hand carved and painted. It’s a unique piece of handicraft from Sweden!
Gränna is a real-life candy cane village, with candy shops along the main street and a museum telling the story of a brave polar explorer.
A unique stay, isn’t it the perfect way to escape from the busy, everyday life? Recently, I discovered such a unique accommodation in the Netherlands: de Rijsgaardhoeve. Here, you can recharge your batteries in a special framework. By sleeping in a peat cabin, for instance!
In the Harz, there are still multiple steam trains in operation. The Brockenbahn takes you to the Brocken summit, which is the highest peak in Northern Germany. It’s a magical train ride!
