    Tauberrettersheim

    August 18, 2016 in Germany

    We've been away for more than 7 weeks now; the longest either of us have been travelling. We were starting to get a bit 'travel lagged' with all the new experiences, sights and bits of language we've been learning. The stopover at Tauberrettersheim was just what we needed; a grassy area off a farm track and near a the small River Tauber. We spent 2 nights here and didn't stray far from the van. Will played his guitar and baked bread buns, Vicky crocheted, picked a bunch of wildflowers and cleaned the van and Poppy relaxed on the grass. It was a much appreciated and very relaxing stay.Read more

    Veitshöchheim and Würzburg

    August 16, 2016 in Germany

    Veitshöchheim had free stopover adjacent to a park and river 8km away from the city of Würzburg so we stayed one night and cycled in to the city the next day.
    The cycle ride was the worst Vicky had experienced since arriving on the continent although Will found it interesting. The fisrt part of the cycle was through dusty industrial plants and smelly slag heaps whilst we were being overtaken by HGVs. The second had us sandwiched between a dual carriageway and a multi track railway line. When we reached the city the cycle track faded in and out on the busy winding streets full of traffic lights, crossroads and roadworks.

    Our experience improved once we dismounted to explore the city. There were a few interesting sights including the Alte Mainbrüke (Old Main Bridge) over the River Main. Supporting 12 Baroque statues of Saints, it lead to castles on the opposite hillside and reminded us of Charles Bridge in Prague. Dom St Kilian (Cathedral) with its gold topped spire was also striking.

    We visited a tea shop and bought some jasmine tea leaves to make jasmine ice tea after Vicky had tasted it in Cafe Wagner a few days previously. The shopkeeper told us it was her dream to spend a year touring England!

    One of the things on Will's 'to do list' was to have a drink in a Wine Cellar so for lunch we visited Würzburger Ratskellar (Würzburg town hall cellar) that had been turned into a restaurant. The two rooms were impressive with their high arched moulded ceilings and part timbered walls with stone carved and molded detail. We chose a little alcove and had a glass of the local Silvaner dry white wine with our meals.

  • Day13

    Docked at Wurzburg and went by coach to Rothenburg. Rothenburg is one of the most famous and most picturesque towns in Germany. It is completely surrounded by a town wall. The town is home to Germany's famous Kathe Wohlfahrt Christmas Shop. This is the original Christmas Shop - it seems every town has one, dedicated to selling Chrissy decs and religious paraphinalia. Janette spent our time there in the Chrissy Shop - surprise surprise - apparently it is huge.
    I went exploring the town. The wall has towers at regular points and some of these are also gateways. There are steps to go up and walk along the walkway at the top - a great way to see the medieval town.
    Back to Wurzburg and a chance to walk around here - a really good comparison as it turned out. Wurzburg is a university town and not really geared for tourism. It was nice to walk around a 'normal' German town.
    Tomorrow we leave the Main River and enter the Main to Danube Canal at Bamberg.

    Along the Tauber

    June 4, 2017 in Germany

    We headed back into Rothenburg and through the old town yesterday. The festival was still in full swing with bands playing, locals wandering around in costumes and throngs of tourists. Then we followed the path back onto the Tauber River. The ride was the best yet, a gorgeous valley and interesting encounters along the way. We stopped on a bridge to take a photo of a little chapel and a local out for a walk stopped to chat. In Creglingen we stopped for lunch, the town was eerily quiet, everyone was in Rothenburg, but we found a great little cafe, Michelangelo's, perfect hot chocolate and apple strudel. Before we left other cyclists had followed our lead so we were good for business.
    Even the wildlife was interesting; big white snails creeping across the path.
    Afternoon tea was in Weikersheim in a tranquil town square. Around the square were a series of gold statues, the photo probable doesn't do them justice. The tranquility was shattered when the weekend piping school got back to work after their break. Imagine a dozen or so bagpipe players practicing in a castle courtyard.
    Only about 60K but we had such a great day we didn't get here to Bad Mergentheim until after 5.

    Abschluss

    September 15, 2017 in Germany

    Noch 300 km. Zeit für eine bedingt romantische Übernachtung fast am Mainufer. Vorher waren wir noch in Graz für eine Übernachtung. Graz ist wie immer einen Besuch wert.
    Eine tolle Reise mit vielen Eindrücken geht zu Ende.

    Eibelstadt

    June 10 in Germany

    Nach dem Aufstehen kommt um 8.30Uhr der Bäckerwagen hupend auf den Platz gefahren. Eine ältere Frau packt ihre Kisten mit frischen Brotwaren aus und sofort bildet sich eine Schlange von Mobilisten, die ihr Frühstück einkaufen. Von Baguette über Brot bis Croissants und Teigwaren ist alles dabei. Nach dem Frühstück entsorgen der WoMo-Tanks, Frischwasser auffüllen und los geht's. Über die D418 und D415 geht es durch Neuf-Brisach, über den Rhein (=Grenze) zur Autobahn-Auffahrt 64a bei Krozingen. Hier fahren wir auf die A5 Richtung Karlsruhe. Wir haben bis zu unserem heutigen Übernachtungsziel bei Würzburg ca. 360km Strecke vor uns, daher die Fahrt über die deutschen Autobahnen. Die französisch/deutsche Grenze hätte man fast nicht bemerkt, nur ein Schild wies daraufhin, keinerlei Grenzposten zu sehen! Die Temperaturen steigen bis Mittag von 19 auf fast 30Grad. In Emmendingen legen wir noch einen Tankstopp ein (volltanken, denn in DE kostet der Liter Diesel 1,27€ ggüber FR mit 1,60€!!). Dann geht es im fließenden Sonntagsverkehr (zum Glück ohne Lkw) mit 90 bis 100km/h dahin, es ist ziemlich voll. Am AB-Kreuz Walldorf geht es auf die A6 Richtung Nürnberg bis zum Kreuz Weinsberg. Weiter A81 Richtung Würzburg. Südlich von Würzburg liegt der kleine Ort Eibelstadt. Hier kann man auf dem Gelände des Wassersportclubs einen von 35 Plätzen auf Rasen belegen. Man zahlt 10€ pro Nacht, Stromversorgung und Platz-WC sind inklusive. Die sehr gepflegten Platzduschen kann man für 1€ (Münzautomat für 5min) benutzen. Schöne Lage am kleinen Motoryachthafen direkt am Main. Der Main-Radweg führt direkt am Stellplatz vorbei. Sehr schön! Zum Essen gehen wir (nach Duschen-Test) auf die Bootsterrasse des kleinen Platz-Imbisses "Bötle", sehr urig! Leichtes Schaukeln, wenn ein Motorboot den Main entlang jagt. Das Essen ist lecker und günstig.Read more

    Ohne mich, da schiebe ich. ...

    August 24, 2016 in Germany

    und ess eine schöne Banane. Oben, aber war das anstrengend. Ich dachte, meine Waden explodieren. Schaue mich kurz mal um, ob ich den Biker irgendwo am Wegrand mit einem Herzkasper liegen sehe, der unten am Anstieg an mir vorbeigeradelt ist. Nö, entweder ein Profi oder er hat später geschoben. Was soll's. Weiter geht's.
