Hillerse / Lower Saxony

Some impressions from my time in Hillerse February 2021.

More pictures will be added while I’m here, so it might be worth to come back again later ūüôā


Hillerse, where I’m staying, is a village, which belongs to the community of Northeim, in Lower Saxony. On our first day there we went to explore the woods around the city of Northeim.

Hillerse, first days

After the first snowy days the sun came out and with it a feeling of spring. Lush green fields and blue skies.

“I believe that if you’re working to make this world a better place, you should have the best website and the best marketing tools available to deliver your message.” Verena Spilker, founder

‚ÄúVerena works with creativity, carefully and reliably. She implemented our ideas brilliantly.‚ÄĚ
Kerstin Meyer


‚ÄúWorking with Verena was one of the best things that could have happened to us in our situation: We had no experience in translating a real life festival situation into an online festival, but Verena was able to see us through in an uncomplicated manner. With a calm, patient and absolutely accurate and concentrated way of working, she built us a website which we see with pride and great pleasure.‚ÄĚ
Elske Beckmann

Prosanova 2020

‚ÄúI found Verena to be very pleasant and competent in working with us ‚Äď with her great work she didn‚Äôt only make it possible to facilitate a whole festival online, but a beautiful one too!‚ÄĚ
Miriam Wittig

Prosanova 2020

“Before contacting Verena’s Design Studio, I didn’t have a website and didn‚Äôt really get on with it myself. I chose Verena’s Design Studio because of their political orientation and community connection. I found the cooperation very helpful and am now very happy to have a new website and to get positive feedback for the website as well. I can gladly recommend Verena’s Design Studio!”
