The small Greek island Leros has gone through a lot in the world wars. This makes the island near the Turkish border particularly exciting for divers - the waters are full of airplane and ship wrecks. Timo Dersch undertook an underwater journey through time.
The Meteora monasteries: UNESCO World Heritage, must-see Greece. In reality, they are overcrowded, but beautiful moments remain - thanks to cats and coffee.
Beautiful places are the most beautiful when you are alone. When locals rejoice over one again. As in the Halkidiki Peninsula just before the end.
Quiet and dreamy the lake lies in front of the window of my hotel in Ioannina in Epirus. I am following an invitation to a cultural road trip through the Greek region of Epirus. The ancient theaters of the region, culture and nature call for intense attention. Follow me to a region of diversity!
Of gods you hear in Greece often, but only in one place you can visit them on their throne - on the Olympus, the roof of Greece.
White villas over the sea, perfect light. On Santorin vacationers find the backdrop for romantic dream images that demand vehemently for a presentation. It is most beautiful on the Cyclades island in autumn.
Greece's Cyclades. The popular summer islands are surprisingly empty in spring. Then hotels are renovated, painted facades and painted street lights. You feel like a guest who comes to the party too early. On one of the islands even the complete seclusion waits.
The Greek island of Hydra was once home to pirates. Later, artists strolled here. And many a person sang of the great love and became world famous.
Midsummer shows mercy. It's hotter at this time of the year, even hotter. Just so that you can only lie in the shade or sip a refreshing caffè freddo in the air-conditioned restaurant. But we are lucky and so we stroll for ten hours through the streets of the Greek metropolis. Without city map, without sense of direction. Passing cardboard settlements homeless, past magnificent buildings. Surrounded by tourists, surrounded by locals, empty streets.
I skip the invitation: "A weekend of a special kind ... for sports enthusiasts and nature lovers ... 10. Virgin Forest Ultramarathon Trail in Paranesti. "Paranesti? I open Google Maps and mumble something about: "Oh right, that's Greece up there as well," as the needle drops close to the Bulgarian border.
