    A Visit to Strasbourg

    August 29, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Up till now we have been travelling in Germany, today was our first chance to cross the border into France. The region of Alsace-Lorraine is officially now part of France, but still retains a typical German character in its culture and architecture. This is especially true in the large city of Strasbourg.

    Many trivia quizzes contain a question about which country Strasbourg lies in. I suspect that many people incorrectly answer that it is in Germany, whereas it is actually situated in France.

    Our group found a beautiful restaurant by the river where we stopped for lunch. It would have been hard to find a more idyllic location. Some of the ladies then went off to buy some Alsatian lace, which the region is famous for.

    From Germany to France and back to Germany... We tried a campsite in Strasbourg, but it was full, so went back a couple of miles back over the river to Germany and are staying in the Stellplatz am Wasserturm in Kehl for €8 a night

    Went out for a Greek meal at Alexandros in Kehl in the evening. It was very nice.Read more

    Trip to Kehl

    April 15, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Due to some issues with our motorhome, we went up north again. We need to see the manufacturer of our motorhome to discuss what could be done with our broken shower. At least now we knew what was the reason for the leakage :-) Despite all the surrounding was really nice, we had decent weather and the river was just great.Read more

    Die Fahrt entlang des Rheins und durch die Rheinauen war ein echtes Erlebnis. Besonders bei dem super Wetter. Ist schon interessant, wie Bäume und Sträucher gedeihen, wenn ein Fluss für wechselnden Grundwasserspiegel und Überschwemmungen sorgt.

    Unterwegs gab es immer wieder Staustufen zu sehen, auch Wehr genannt. Sie dienen hauptsächlich zum Schutz gegen Hochwasser. Aber auch der Grundwasserspiegel wird damit reguliert. Mit einem passenden Kraftwerk werden sie zusäzlich zur Stromgewinnung genutzt.
