    Die Stolpersteine sind ein Mahnmal wider des Vergessens. Der deutsche Künstler und Bildhauer Gunter Demnig verlegt die Stolpersteine in ganz Europa. Sie erinnern an die ermordeten Menschen in der NS-Zeit. Die von uns fotografierten Stolpersteine stammen aus Skandinavien und Deutschland.

    Day 287: Classical Weimar

    November 28, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    Time to do a video about Weimar! It was supposed to be sunny today, but all we could see was drizzle. Waited until 10am for it to clear up, but no luck. So off we went, into the rain. Filmed at various places around the town, including Goethe's house, Schiller's house, and a few other spots. Had lunch at the Christmas markets which had opened today - interesting to see the difference between these and the far more kid-focused ones at Dessau. Also interesting to see the difference between these local markets, and what I remember of the larger tourist markets in Munich and Vienna from our last trip.

    More wandering and filming after lunch, eventually ending up in the large park designed by Goethe where it had happily stopped raining. Nice little place, Weimar - it feels very much like a student town, with a large university making up the majority of the population. It must be a real centre for music as well, since I constantly saw people wandering around with instrument cases.

    Headed home and relaxed for a few hours, before having an early dinner of gnocchi and heading back out to the Christmas markets. Filled up the edges with sausages and sweet treats, and of course gluhwein. No snow, but it was definitely below zero and felt it. It's nice that most of the places have fires for heating, but it does unfortunately mean you go home smelling like a chimney!

    Day 286: South to Weimar

    November 27, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Back on the road, and not particularly sorry to leave Dessau. It's a long way from the tourist trail, aside from people doing world heritage site visits I guess, and it shows. Made the annoying walk across to the station one last time, caught the train up to Magdeburg, then another train out to Weimar - a city that's surprisingly important to German heritage.

    Arrived around 12:30pm and had lunch at the station McDonalds to kill time, before heading to our Airbnb. Host Markus was waiting for us and happy for us to check in early, so we dropped our bags, basked in the warmth briefly and then headed back out.

    First stop was the Bauhaus university, where the first Bauhaus school was originally located. Finished up our video here, though it wasn't particularly interesting since the main building pre-dates Bauhaus architectural style. Not a whole lot to see sadly.

    Also went for a wander through the old town to get the lay of the land, as we'd need to do some filming here over the next day or so. Weimar was home to a real German cultural hub in the late 18th century - it was home to Goethe, Schiller and Herder among many others, and not long prior it had been a centre for music too - home to Franz Liszt and (briefly) JS Bach. In the 20th century there were the Bauhaus connections, and Germany's first constitutional republic - the so-called Weimar Republic - was declared here. The centre of town is a World Heritage site, mainly for the late 18th century cultural impact of Goethe, Schiller and the rest.

    So we had a look at the nice buildings and squares, though didn't really do much filming. They aren't looking quite as nice as usual, sadly, since the Christmas markets are starting tomorrow and there's work vans everywhere. Satisfied with our afternoon of ambling, we headed home with some supplies to cook.
