    Freiberg Germany

    July 19, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Today we visited the university town of Freiberg. This was a free town during the reformation period where free thinking was encouraged and those who were being persecuted for their radical views could flee to. Among them were people like Erasmus whose views were not welcomed by the Catholic church of the day. We walked around the city and noted the memorial to those many Jews who lost their lives when their synagogue was burnt down in 1938 during the period of the Nazi party rising to power. A footprint of the synagogue was made into a fountain feature to remind the city of what occurred. We shared the mandatory "long red" sausage common to the city, and lunched at a fabulous restaurant up the hill overlooking the city reached by cable car. Back home for our final night in Germany after an enjoyable few days in the scenic south west. This city was almost completely destroyed by the allied bombing during the second world war, the stained glass windows were taken out of the cathedral and there are photos of the church standing among the rubble. It's a remarkable story.Read more

    12. und leider unvollendete Etappe

    June 13 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    Weiter ging es heute auf zur letzten Etappe Richtung Basel. Vorbei an der Sausenburg, durch Kandern mit der wunderschönen Wolfschlucht, vorbei an Obstwiesen mit vielen leckeren Kirschen.
    Mittagspause gab es irgendwo zwischen Wollbach und Lörrach.
    Dann ging es weiter vorbei an der Burgruine Rötteln, wo wir uns ein Bierchen gönnten.
    Anschließend weiter mit Abstieg nach Lörrach vorbei am vorletzten Portal mit Stempel.
    In Lörrach mussten wir nach stolzen 275km! leider unseren Westweg abbrechen, da die Grenze in die CH nach Basel leider offiziell noch zu ist.
