    Rothenberg

    August 1, 2017 in Germany

    We were heading to Nuremburg today but decided to visit Rothenburg ob der Tauber (on the Tauber River) on the way. Old Town Rothenberg is reputedly the best preserved walled city in Germany (14th Century). It is a very pretty town. We got great views of the town and the surrounding countryside by climbing the Town Hall tower - what's another 100 or so steps on this trip!! Amazing Christmas Shop here - huge - Rothenberg is also known for its Christmas Market. It was a good call to visit here.Read more

    Nuremberg / Nürnberg

    August 1, 2017 in Germany

    We stayed outside the Old Town so with some instructions, a 15 minute walk and a 3-stop metro train ride, we arrived right in the centre of Lorenzerplatz in Old Town. I immediately felt dwarfed by the St Lorenz Church right above me as I entered the plaza, just one of the beautiful churches in Old Town. There is also the Frauenkirche (Our Lady's Church) built in the 14th Century. Lots to see here and despite it raining most of the night and no raincoats or umbrellas we managed to see most of it. Of course no visit is complete without the castle visit. Nuremberg Castle is a group of medieval fortified buildings on a sandstone ridge and is considered to be one of Europe's most formidable medieval fortifications.Read more

    Nuremburg

    August 20, 2016 in Germany

    Parking up at a small and crowded (but free) stopover on the outskirts of Nuremburg we took the tandem along the well signposted riverside cycle track 3km into the heart of the city.

    Being a Saturday the place was heaving. We came across a busy market with red and white striped stall covers in the church square. Its stalls led up the street and across one of Nuremburg's many low red sandstone bridges towards the cathedral. Whilst the cathedral was very grand with its towering stone steeples, intricate carved decoration and stained glass windows, the memorable thing about Nuremburg is its series of bridges. Unlike many of the German cities we have visited, the River Pegnitz isn't navigable for large cargo ships or cruise ships and so the bridges are low and frequent. Many have arches and stone carved detail that we could get close enough to appreciate as we walked along the bank.Read more

    Nuremberg Altstadt

    October 19, 2017 in Germany

    Nuremberg was fantastic! We had an excellent day with a real variety of experiences. Nuremberg is a walled city so we started off walking to the Altstadt (old town). There is a lovely river running right through the old town, lined with medieval buildings and a spattering of modern buildings which have been really tastefully integrated.

    There is also a lot of renovation occurring in the city, so there were cranes everywhere you turned!

    Nuremberg Bratwurst

    October 19, 2017 in Germany

    We stopped at a restaurant today, whose sole menu offerings were a plate of either 6, 8, 10 or 12 bratwurst with a side of potato salad or sauerkraut.

    They were the yummiest sausages!

    Took some photos of our poppets, not the sausages.

    Unschlitthaus, Nuremberg

    October 19, 2017 in Germany

    As we were making our way back to the Haupmarkt, we came across a series of bridges across the Pegnith River - breathtakingly beautiful!

    Walking back to the car, we followed the city walls. I remembered this a little too late that I had read that it went through the red light district, a la Amsterdam style. Kate advised us this street seemed "inappropriate" because all the girls were only in their bras and undies. Yep!Read more

    Nazi Party Rally Grounds, Nuremberg

    October 19, 2017 in Germany

    We spent a couple of hours walking around what remains of the Nazi Party Rally Grounds. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to go through the museum which is housed in the unfinished Congress Hall. That building looks like a modern day Colosseum from the outside.

    The structures would have been magnificent in scale. The cost of upkeep though has been too much and in 1979 the main columns of the iconic front section of the Zepelin Field building were destroyed by the government as they had become unsafe.

    These days, the venue is used for concerts and car races, and the annual VolksFest. There are also a number of sporting stadiums. The walk around the lake was great. We came across a flock of wild geese who were not at all disturbed by humans wandering past.

    NBG!

    May 9, 2017 in Germany

    Today was the longest day of cycling so far, 90km with a fastest downhill speed of 58kmh...😀 some fairly nasty hills too add to the mix of course.

    We had our first puncture, a board tack IN THE FOReST! Who brings tacks to the forest, eh? Like a pitstop pro the inner tubes were changed in 15 mins and we were back on our way.

    I consigned the sleeves of my useless Tresspass rain jacket to the bin of a bus stop in a little village where we sheltered from rain and where a group of 3 children who had just got off the school bus were giggling at us. The two boys sent the girl over to ask 20 x questions, including why Peter was wearing sandals.😀

    In NBG were were greeted by Peter's friend Philip who was a fabulous host providing beer, showers and a comfy bed for the night. Just what we needed. We ate at the NGB equivalent of Hofbrauhaus in Munich which was very cool despite having a pub sign from the town my old office was based in. Work..? What work!

    A quick trip to Sportscheck made a hefty dent in my travel kitty but I now no longer fear the next rain downpour 😀
