Menschenpaar (Georg Kolbe, 1936), Rudolf-von-Bennigsen-Ufer, Hannover

Winter sun at the Maschsee – and a coffee machine on a bicycle.

At the Maschsee in Hanover.

Today finally blue sky above Hanover – so I left the computer after lunch break and was heading out to get some fresh air. The destination: the Maschsee (THE lake in Hanover), or to be more precise, the Rudolf-von-Bennigsen-Ufer. The spot with the best sunshine in the afternoon.

A few pictures dated last autumn have been presented here in this article already (German only). They have been in colour actually. Today the report is in classic black & white.

I started nearby the sculpture “Menschenpaar” by Georg Kolbe.

Close by I found a coffee machine on a bicycle – know better as the Café Vélo. Perfect at this location and time

I ordered a Café Latte and took some pictures of course.

Coffee is ready soon...

With my coffee to go I went down south heading towards the Löwenbastion (the lion monuments), passing by Pier 51 – today no empty tables here.

At the lion’s bastion the low winter sun was painting long shadows on the ways.

On the way back I had a short break in the sun – if it was me the winter could say farewell already.

But the highlight on this afternoon was the delicious coffee which I had at Café Veló
