Harz Witches’ Trail on the Brocken

Last week we took off for three days and hiked along the Harz Witches’ Trail on the Brocken in the Harz mountain range in Germany. The tour starts in Osterrode, runs over the Brocken, through the Bode Gorge and finally ends after 97 km in Thale. The occasion was perfect for testing out our new active version as well as the BERTRAND bottles.

Harz Witches’ Trail verdict:

An easily walkable trail with a few steep phases and a wonderful end through the Bode Gorge, where dozens of fire salamander are waiting on the side of the track. Unfortunately, there were somewhat too many farm roads and too few genuine tracks for our taste.

BERTRAND active verdict:

Very filling and sustaining. A real kick, especially for the phases in which the stomach and the morale are empty. Has the advantage of not needing any breaks from walking, which are so hard to carry on from!

Are you planning a hike too? As of now, we’re enclosing a voucher worth €6.00 with all orders, which can be used to buy one of our packs. With this, the sample menu would be free!

What is often unknown and unnoticed: the lemon peel is far more beneficial than lemon juice! Because the peel not only contains more aromatic substances, but also much more nutrients. Only organic lemons are suitable for the safely consuming the peel, because a large part of the conventional herbicides and pesticides are absorbed by the peel.

From coast to coast

Travelling from coast to coast by scooter in the USA? Sounds like a strenuous undertaking. Different climate conditions, thousands of kilometers. But the friends Dejan Kovacevic and Patrick Oswald want to face this adventure and collect money for children with cancer. What does this have to do with us? Well, Patrick takes our products with him on the trip, which both of them only take with one backpack each and of course their scooter.
