Kangoo Jumps – The Other Jogging

Kangoo-Jump

I am not a „Jog-a-holic“ and will probably never be one, but yesterday I discovered „Easier Jogging.“ 😉 It has to be said that this new type of movement is far healthier than traditional jogging and even activates a larger range of muscle groups. As part of a sponsored 1-hour Kangoo Jumps training session, I was able to take a closer look at these jumping shoes.

My trip to Sababurg was amazing

schloss1

Last Sunday, I went to Sababurg zoo and was deeply impressed.
You can see over 700 animals stretching over an area of 130 ha in the Urwildpark zoo with raptor station in North Hesse. I took pictures of wolves, wooly pigs, lynxes and many other animals directly below the Dornröschenschloss (Sleeping Beauty Castle).
But I don’t want to spoil all the fun, you really need to see it for yourself.

What are you looking to do in Kassel?

herkules

What do you, a Hamburg native, want to do in Kassel?” This is frequently the response I get when natives from Kassel ask me where I come from. Kassel is a beautiful city, a classic “love at second sight” instance, offering a great many things to discover.

And the winner is… Kassel!

Ständehaus KasselWho would have guessed: in the ranking of Germany's most dynamic city, Kassel came in first.
The Northern Hessian city is primarily known for the documenta art exhibition. Kassel is not only appreciated by art lovers, but also boasts Germany's third highest number of museums after Frankfurt and Stuttgart. And the Hessentag, an annual festival celebration highlighting various regions in Hessen, will even be coming to Kassel in 2013.

It’s movie time!

There is a really nice little movie theater inside

Those gray autumn days getting you down? Just go to the movies!
For example, I recently went to Filmladen. For over 30 years, this art-house cinema has operated at Goethestraße, in the heart of Kassel’s Vorderer Westen (district of Kassel).

In the Breath of Time: Kasseler Musiktage (Kassel Music Days) 2011

Ständehaus

Ständehaus

The first weekend in October marked the start of this year’s Kasseler Musiktage. During the festival, many young musicians from around the world demonstrate their skill. They offer fresh interpretations of major works in unusual concert formats, often in combination with literary readings.

Eager to see for myself, I decided to attend Forum I: Hören – Sinnen – Erleben (Listen – Ponder – Experience). The event was held at the newly renovated Ständehaus, quite an impressive building. The program included sonatas by Beethoven, Bach and Ravel, along with readings from Heinrich von Kleist. Even with very little knowledge of these classics, I looked forward to the evening.

Vorderer Westen – something for the eyes and for the soul

The Vorderer Westen, the most popular part of the city for academics (and those who would like to be academics) between 20 and 60 years old, extends all around the Bebelplatz and the Stadthalle. In the 1960s, some of the buildings from the Wilhelminian era were supposed to be torn down to make way for “new modern construction”. Borrowing from the house dwellings in some large cities, many apartment-sharing communities sprang up at this time in the Vorderer Westen, where some members of the SMA Executive Board could be found.

Life in Kassel

So here we are, the employee blog. There are several interesting blog post categories to choose from, and I went with “Life in Kassel.” As someone who moved to Kassel by choice, it’s not hard to talk about life here. I could offer restaurant tips (or it might be wiser keep those to myself so I can still get a table) or I could talk about the different things to see and do around town, such as the colorful illuminated fountains at the Hercules Monument (then maybe even more people will show up to watch).
