The best outdoor activities in times of Corona

The best outdoor activities in times of Corona

We have already introduced you to the best indoor activities the other day, but we are still allowed to go out in Germany. That’s why we’ve put together the best outdoor activities for you, so you won’t get bored. Of course you have to check to what extent your country allows certain activities outside – and if you need anything for the outdoor activities, we will gladly send it to you!

1. Go for a walk

A clever philosopher once said that the best thoughts usually come during a walk. And there’s a lot of truth to it, I suppose. After all, anyone who knows how refreshing a walk can be after working on a laptop in the home office for a long time or just sitting at home for a long time will have to pull themselves together to get some fresh air outside.Because walking pumps oxygen through the body and revitalizes the mind. And the good thing is that walking is an activity that doesn’t cost money or require special equipment.

2. Gardening

If you have your own garden, it is a good idea to bring it back to life.  Mowing the lawn, pulling the weeds or digging up the bed. The good thing is that the do-it-yourself stores are open in this country and you can buy the gardening tools you need. Probably the gardens here in Germany never looked better

3. Breakfast on the balcony or in the own garden

Put out the garden chairs and enjoy an extensive breakfast outside. When it’s still a little fresh, just put on a jacket or blanket and warm yourself with your coffee and the sun. A breakfast in the fresh air gives you an extra portion of energy!

4. Ride a bike

On the bike, “Social distancing” works very well and is therefore very popular with people in the current situation. You can not only avoid the bus or train in your city, but also protect your immune system with the sport. Of course you should not ride your bike in a larger group, but it is just as much fun to explore the area with your family or just a friend.

5. Barbecue

Good weather and there is usually a delicious smell of barbecue in the air. Unfortunately the barbecue evening cannot take place with your friends at the moment, but you can start the barbecue with your family or alone. And at the barbecue you can also try different things, because there are many delicious dishes and it doesn’t always have to be the Bratwurst.

6. Go for a hike

The current situation is perfect for avoiding crowds and going out into nature. A nice hike keeps you and your immune system fit and you discover new corners of home.

7. Camping in the garden

During the Corona period most campsites are closed, so the local garden can be perfectly converted into a campsite. Just put up your tent and enjoy the night outdoors. This outdoor activity is also very suitable for families, as especially the children will have a lot of fun here.

8. Geocaching

If you have a GPS device, you can try out Geocaching. It is a kind of modern treasure hunt, colloquially known in Germany as GPS scavenger hunt. The idea is to find treasure using GPS data or maps and to note the successful finding in the logbook, which is usually located at the place where the treasure was found. Often you will find a little something at the place where you found the item, which you can take with you like a trailer or a small figure – but you should also put something down for it!

The best indoor activities in times of Corona

The current situation with the Corona pandemic is not easy and many people are in domestic quarantine because of it. In order to keep your head above water, we have collected indoor activities for you. Hopefully there is something for you, too:

1. Spring clean

Spring cleaning is the ideal opportunity to bring freshness and order back into your own four walls. Dirt and grime reduce the feeling of well-being and have a corresponding effect on the soul. A spotlessly clean apartment, on the other hand, gives you a good feeling

2. Watch movies or series

Due to the many streaming offers or your big collection of DVDs, you now have the time to watch more series and movies. A nice movie evening with the whole family has its advantages

3. Sewing

If you own a sewing machine and fabric, then sewing is a great occupation. You can even make good use of it by sewing mouthguards – you can find instructions on the Internet. In many cities, initiatives have been founded to pass on your sewn mouthguard to important stations – maybe there’s something like that in your town

4. Try out new recipes

Try your hand at new recipes in the kitchen, because that’s what the time is for now. Now you can finally cook the three hours of food you always wanted to make. Of course you have to be lucky that your supermarket still has the right ingredients for the hamster purchases

 

 

5. Play board games or cards

You probably still have games or cards somewhere in your apartment or house. There is nothing wrong with a nice game evening with your partner and the children

6. Reading

Who doesn’t know it – you still have a list of books that you really want to read or have these books even already standing unread on the bookshelf? The current situation is just perfect to pick up a book and dive into the story

7. Gaming

If board games are not fun for you, you can move the fun to the online world. The game console is waiting for its bet and you can also combine this perfectly with a virtual meeting with your friends

8. Do things you don’t have normally time to do

During normal working hours you often don’t get to do things you wanted to do, but where you didn’t find the time or or you put it off. Maybe you wanted to stick the photos into the photo album, repair something in the household, still have to do your tax return or learn a new language. Then up and down it now – then it’s done!

Tchibo – more than good coffee

Most Germans immediately think of Tchibo as the good coffee and the coffee smell in the shops. But Tchibo has much more to offer than just the best coffee taste.

Tchibo was founded in 1949 by Max Herz with the revolutionary idea of sending coffee to customers by post. Even then, customers could choose between coffee packaging in tins and handkerchief or tea towel bags. This story began in Hamburg, where Tchibo still has its headquarters today. From the original mail-order coffee company, Tchibo has developed into an internationally active company that operates in significantly more business areas than the traditional distribution of coffee. Over the years, Tchibo has consistently expanded its product range and distribution channels, ensuring diversity and quality worldwide with strong brands.

With around 640 branches and 7900 employees in Germany, Tchibo is one of the largest German consumer goods and retail companies. The stores can be found both as Tchibo’s own stores in city centres or in shopping centres. Tchibo’s shelves can also be found in supermarkets from time to time. If you come from another European country, you can also find Tchibo there, as they also have around 360 branches in other European countries. But don’t worry, Tchibo also offers all its products on its website. So you can shop online from the comfort of your own home.

Especially the large product range makes Tchibo such a big company, because Tchibo is more than just good coffee. In addition to coffee specialities, there is a large selection of travel options ranging from mobile phone contracts to fashion and technology. For Tchibo, however, this is not a contradiction in terms, as they want to offer their customers everything they need.  

The best costumes for carnival

The best costumes for carnival

The carnival starts in Germany at the 11.11 at 11:11 o’clock with many parties everywhere, but specific in Cologne, Dusseldorf or Mainz.  Every city has his own description of carnival like Cologne and Dusseldorf with Karneval, otherwise Mainz with Fastnacht.

The summit of carnival is at the Rosenmontag and Faschingsdienstag with many hilarious parties and colourful removals. On Aschermittwoch ends this cheerfulness celebration.

 

 

But carnival is not only celebrated in Germany. Above all the carnival stands in Rio de Janeiro, where a samba school organized the first official carnival parade in 1932. Since then, countless samba schools have been established in Brazil, which today organise the annual carnival spectacle in Rio and are represented by up to 5,000 participants per school. The carnival significance at the Sugar Loaf is associated with glamour and glory. Every year it attracts jecken from all over the world to the Copacabana.
