Bridge of Unity near Vacha
A row of historical half-timbered buildings can be seen towering over the harbour basin in Stade on a sunny day. On the left is a bridge to the quayside from which the picture is being taken. To the right of this, a wide set of steps leads down to the water. Anchored in the harbour basin is an small old wooden sailboat. The half-timbered buildings are four to five storeys high and packed closely together. They are almost all made of red bricks.
Two women are cycling side by side along a narrow country lane that is lined with trees. The trees are at least 20 years old and behind them, on either side on the lane, are meadows.
