Today I take you a long one of my – admittedly rare – morning walks. Every time I manage to get my coffee into the thermos, but on boots and a coat and head out I feel so much better starting the day. Still I don’t do it often enough. Laziness wins, my hot water bottle, a book and myself cuddle up on the couch and suddenly its close to 9 am and I am needed at my send.
I am still working on finding the best spots in my new neighborhood. But I think I am coming up with a regular little rout and it takes me along some pretty little tiny houses. I have mentioned them before on this blog when talking about my vacation at home and exploring outside the doorstep but I haven’t really shown any photos. So here we go, let’s stroll through my neighborhood catching fall vibes while we are at it.
Heading out of the house I have to cross one of two bridges to get to the lovely little dirt road where those tiny houses sit. Today I take the fancy red bridge.
I quickly head to the left onto the peak of the peninsula to have peek at the lake.
Right after the bridge there is tiny dirt road to the right. That is were I turn in now. And immediately you think you landed in hobbit land. Houses are tiny and quirky here.
I love the bright color of this yellow house. It is one of the bigger ones with a garage.
Then there is this rather simple one but during the summer the rose bushes are adding another pop of color.
I stroll on sipping my coffee and come across this gem. I call it the tiny mansion.
Dosen this one look so regal in a tiny version. Like a bit of Ancient Greek with those columns?
On I go and sitting between kayak and sailing clubs I discover this one.
It is inner of the newer ones – or at least renovated. I love the simplicity and the blue bench. Always a good choice combining white and blue.
And the we stumble upon this hidden gem and probably my favorite.
It is so quirky and individual. I always feel a bit bad peeking in and staring so I only snatch quick shots from the side.
Here is the summer version of that house.
And a peek across the canal to the backside.
It is not only that the house is in blue, white and pops of pink that are obviously my favorites but I love that it is constant in its appearance. It’s just so quirky.
Time to head back by crossing that little canal and then another three bridges to get back to my house.
If you enjoyed this stroll around the neighborhood you may also enjoy my previous walks in 2014, 2018 and 2021 in a different neighborhood.
What is your favorite little house?
My favorite is definitely the blue one. It has character and is that a wisteria in the back?

I think it is. Not sure what to call it in German or English but it those hanging blossoms in a pale purple.
This is so beautiful! I have to admit my favourite was the bridge (not a house I know) – that bright red SHOUTS joy.
I *try* to walk the kids to school most days and it always, always makes my day feel like it’s off to a great start!

The bridge is fun especially when the setting sun hits it. I count that.
Getting a walk in right in the morning is the best. I try to establish abbot to walk – like commuting to the office – it’s tough.
Wow, what a gorgeous area you are in! I love all those photos but my heart belongs to that little blue house. What a dream!
That blue house is such a cute little space and I enjoy walking by every time.
I love the little bit of ancient Greek house. I feel like it looks like it’s from a storybook!
I have a dog and that means that no matter what the weather, the temperature, or season, the first thing I do every day is go for a walk. It really does wake me up faster and get my juices flowing and I feel like a morning walk should be a must for everyone!
Yes that house of fun too. It is so fun to see what people make of their home. I bet that does make you wake up. I would be too lazy to get up every.single.day though
THE RED BRIDGE. AWWW! I love it. You really live in a nice neighborhood… and all the quaint little colored houses. Thanks os much for taking us along on your morning walk!
This. neighborhood is becoming really great and of course I still discover all the little places. Now I just need to have more morning walks.
Oh thankyou for this tour of your neighbourhood! It looks like such a lovely place to live!
It really is. I bet you would love a stroll around and we could catch up over a tea to go
I loved coming along with you on your walk! How fun was that? You have some really cute houses along your walking path. I especially love the little blue house.
It is so nice to discover the quirky little corners of a new neighborhood. I wish I would do that walk daily but unfortunately right now I am not. The blue one is fun. I need to go have a look now that we had some snow. I bet it shows another layer of cuteness.
Oh, what a lovely, lovely walk you have just by your neighborhood! I really appreciate this, as my neighborhood is… not nearly this scenic. Not by a large margin. Walking in this area must be so calming and enjoyable – I wish I could come along with you on a daily basis! :)

That would be nice. Maybe then I would manage to go out on a daily basis. It has snowed last night and I really wanted to take a walk but I had another trip to Hamburg today. Maybe it stays a bit
