The Allied powers and the Soviets reshaped the make up of Europe at the close of World War II. Germany was divided into four zones: American, British, French and Soviet, per the agreements of the Yalta Conference. Berlin was similarly divided into four distinct areas but was situated some 100 miles within Soviet controlled eastern Germany, connected only by one highway and rail line to the west. On June 24, 1948, the Soviet Union cut off road and rail access to the Western Allied sectors of Berlin.

Kaffeestube Idensen lies very idyllic surrounded by nothing but pure green and a few houses in the small village of Idensen. This cafe is extremly popular among day trip travelers and there for this place is (on weekends) very crowded - we were not willing to squeeze ourselves in. The cafe's home made buttered pasteries are yet famous for their high quality.
It may be confusing to understand the zones of Hanover public transportations. The key is to know that there are tickets and cards. The term tickets applies to the ones bought at the machine or elsewhere, while cards are the ones with monthly subscription. Inside the city area, you only need a 1-zone ticket as it already covers a good part of the city. However, for the airport you will need a 2-zone ticket, as it is located outside the Zone 1. Ticket is valid inside bus, tram, fast tram, and regional train. wikipedia
This farmer's food store is part of the little farm owned by the Rust family. Beside their farm life, they sell countless home made pumpkins products, such as jam, honey, sauce, salad and many more of things and goodies. Also they sell home made sausages. It's all natural and most lovely. The scent while one is in the barn looking for goodies, carries one away. This store is about 5-10 mns from Wunstorf. They have a nice web page but no information written in English.
How did salt get into the ground? A number of attempts have been made to explain this scientifically, the most probable of which is the so-called bar theory expounded by the geologist, Ochsenius. Briefly, this is as follows: The same as other regions, most of Central Europe was covered by an inland sea more than 250 million years ago, during the Zechstein period, which was largely cut off from the open sea by shallow straits, known as bars. Since a desert-like climate predominated in our latitudes at that time, the intensive solar radiation evaporated the water, like in a gigantic evaporating pan. Bar theory: the salinity of the body of water increased until the dissolved minerals (carbonates, sulphates and chlorides) crystallized out and formed layers of potassic minerals. This led to the development of vast deposits, some of which are several hundred meters thick, which were covered later during the further geological developments by impermeable layers and thus protected from being dissolved again. As a result, we have a natural product at our disposal today that was created from pure sea water by the heat of the sun at a time when there was no pollution.
