  • Day55


    August 20, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    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 ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    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 ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    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 ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    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 ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    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.

    Farewell Innsbruck

    January 13, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    We moved on again today. We had breakfast, packed up and headed towards the train station. We were lucky with the weather as Innsbruck was by far our warmest place so far. The forecast for the next few days was a minimum of -17 and a maximum of - 4. We walked to the train station and Brodie was still touching the snow. We caught the regional train to Munich. It was a relaxing trip, easy to get on and we had our own compartment. The scenery was white fields of snow. We arrived in Munich an hour later. We found the platform where our train was meant to be leaving from. No sight of our train, then it disappeared from the board. We made a mad dash of the platform in case it had changed. We asked a conductor and our train had been cancelled due to the storms around Frankfurt- it couldn't get through. We could leave on another train or wait for an hour for the next one. We lost our reserved seats but we managed to find a carriage with free seats. It took about an hour to get to Nuremberg. The scenery was green fields topped with snow. We got into Nuremberg and it was that chill that gets into your bones. There was ice in the park near us and we had snow falling again. I think we have had our dose of snow- it can clear up now. Going by the weather forcast for the next few days it doesn't get out of the minuses. The supermarket is just through the park so we decided to cut through, the path was ice. You had to walk on the edge otherwise it was like ice skating. We got our supplies and headed back, just have to find a bakery for breakfast. It is good to be back in Germany it's like our second home, familiar things.

    Doctor Doctor

    January 17, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ -2 °C

    Well once again we didn't get up until 8am. On our way to get breakfast we looked out for the squirrels. It didn't take long for Dave to spot one. On the way back there is one in a tree by our apartment. There ended up being about 5 playing around. We spent time trying to get a photo but they are so quick. A man in the park told us they are about a year old. We planned to go to Regensburg for the day but as we were about to leave we decided it might be best if Dave sees a doctor while we are still in Germany. He can't shake his chesty cough, and the rest of us are all well and truly over our colds. There are a quite a few doctors around us, he asked the chemist where to go and they pointed him in the right direction. A few hours later, a few pills, found out the best beer in Nuremberg and a really good gingerbread place, we are right to go. By now it's 12.30pm and too late to go to Regensburg. We decided to head into the old town for some lunch then back out to Nazi Party Rally Grounds. When we ventured out it was -3 and when we went to the bakery it was -8. We are now taking the cold weather in our stride. Finding a place for lunch usually takes a good hour. Eventually we always find one that we agree on. Today it was burgers, so that changed it up a bit. Dave is lucky, today he has red meat twice today in his burger and we have spag bol for tea. I must say I am getting used of a glass of white wine with lunch. In Italy it is offensive to have a fizzy drink with your lunch, so of course I didn't want to be offensive. Now the habit has kind of stuck. We went back out to the Zeppelinfeld, and walked around for a couple of hours. It's a strange feeling standing up where Hiltler did, a powerful feeling. Then at the same time what you are standing on, you are thinking how many people died during the construction. We walked back to the towards the museum and this time we walked across the frozen lake. In a part of it there were a few people ice skating. We had a early night, back at our apartment by 5.30pm. We move on tomorrow so we have that joyful task of packing up again.

    Cruise Crash

    July 13, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Last night Ammaverde hit a bridge. The wheelhouse didn’t lower into the barge. Police were involved.

    This morning, our English friends mobile rings at the tower of the old wall. Their son in law has died. They are going home now.

    We are mid changing ships to the Ammabella, the solution to a low river problem with neither ship now needing to pass the water shed line where a tanker ran aground.

    Live with expectancy; not expectation.

    In and around Nuremberg

    January 16, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ -4 °C

    A late start again, we are not getting up until 8am. It is so hard to get up when it is still dark. We had a look around Nuremberg today. In most Geman towns there is the Alstadt (old town). Walking through the park this morning we saw a squirrel. I'm super excited about seeing a squirrel, a lady in the park said they are always around. People put nuts out for them. It's the same with the birds, there are always bird feeders around. I will be out bright and early looking for squirrels. We had a bit of blue sky and sun, but it felt colder. The weather is always changing and the rest of the day we had snow showers. I don't think I will ever get sick of walking while it's snowing. A coffee, walk around, and then lunch. We had Italian today- pizza and pasta. After lunch we headed out to Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds. It was very intetesting and a lot of information. We didn't finish there until 5pm so it got dark outside. There is so much more to see outside, so we wandered a bit. Then decided to walk to a subway station, we eventually got there. Did our usual tea shopping on the way home, back in our apartment before 7pm. Another good day, our time is going so quickly.

    The next city is Nuremberg

    December 25, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Most famous for its WWII associations is Nuremberg but our days visit left on Christmas Day left recollections of a fascinating and beautiful old city. The first stop off was the site of Hitlers Nuremberg Rallys. Much of this site has been destroyed by the German govt. so as to desensitise it significance. This was the second most bombed city in Germany. Approximately 90% of the buildings in the city were destroyed however the reconstruction was done in the old traditional style so what you see today is much like it was before the war. A walk through the old city is really nice especially if you have the services of a good guide. Travelmarvel have supplied excellent guides everywhere we have been. The city had an extremely well defended castle and the old city walls are the best preserved in Europe. They date back 600 years.Read more
