Three generations, one experience: a vacation at home.
Schlager star Stefanie Hertel, 41, has rediscovered Vogtland for herself. With her husband, Lani Lanner, 46, daughter Joanna, 19, and Pope Eberhard, 82.
Singer: “Beautiful Places I Didn’t Know” Discovery tour of her childhood in Saxony. “We stayed in a cozy wooden house in the middle of a biosphere reserve near Ziolinroda.”
During the day, the family went on excursions on parts of the Vogtland Panorama hiking trail, cooled off in White Elster and had a barbecue by the campfire in the evening. “Vegan – and no one missed the meat or sausage.”
There was a special moment of rest in the 602-meter mountain hotel Heiterer Blick in Markneukirchen.
“My dad has been performing there with the Oelsnitzer Sperken for over 40 years, and we often partied.”
The pouring rain, which surprised both of them on the way there, was less beautiful. “We got wet. Luckily we found shelter.”
The interaction of the three generations worked well during the holiday. “The most important thing is for everyone to take something,” Hertel says. “We always did what was the common denominator.”
However, the family did not sit on top of each other for 24 hours. “Everyone has done something for themselves. When I was paddling with Lani and Jonah, my dad took an afternoon nap.”
As comfortable as the vacation was – it ended in horror. “When we left we locked the door and left the keys there. Unfortunately, our two dogs were still in the hut.”
But after a few minutes help came. The two animals did not notice any excitement. “They were asleep when the door opened.”
