Zollenspieker With the World’s Smallest Diner

Thank you for visiting! 🙂

This is part of Cee’s black and white photo challenge letter y or z.

Very few words in my language start with a y, but it`s very rich in z-words. Zeitgeist and Zeppelin come to mind, but unfortunately I don’t seem to have taken any pictures of them lately. Nor can I present you with a portrait of my Zahnarzt (dentist), which is probably not a very popular word, anyway.

What about Zollenspieker though? It’s the name of a wildlife reserve. Near the ferry that will take you to the other side of the River Elbe you might want to have a four course meal with up to three friends and enjoy the view. In the olden days the wooden hut was used as a flood marker, Pegel, so the official name of the world`s smallest restaurant is Zollenspieker Pegelhäuschen. Isn’t it cute?

More photos of Zollenspieker wildlife in colour.

I just read that Zollenspieker used to be called Yselinge – yippee! This means I killed two birds with one stone! (What a terrible idiom – why should I want to kill even one?)
