Småland Meck-Pomm

One hour east of Hamburg in the midst of rolling hills and endless fields is Lake Neuenkirchen. Something like a forgotten paradise, as the former border – a no go area – between Eastern- and Western Germany was running within spitting distance. So villages stayed the same, as the whole region was declared a preserved area, when the wall came down in 1989. Lots of houses got sold as a half and often the new owners refurbished and renovated without consulting next door neighbour it seems ;-)
