    Oct 5 - Concert at Rastatt Palace

    October 5 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    We had a late lunch - with another appearance by the white swans.

    Dinner tonight is at 5:30 p.m., rather than at 7:00 p.m. because we are all attending a classical music concert known as a “Scenic Enrichment Event”.

    We traveled about an hour to Rastatt with Rudolf as our guide. His daughter was supposed to be the guide, but she had a date, and when she batted her eyes at him, her father caved and dusted off his English, just for us.

    Schloss Rastatt, also known as Residenzschloss Rastatt, is a Baroque schloss in Rastatt, Germany. The palace and the garden were built between 1700 and 1707 by the Italian architect Domenico Egidio Rossi for Margrave Louis William of Baden-Baden.

    The place is a riot of Baroque architecture cornucopia - over the top hardly describes it - gold and mirrors and tapestries and stucco work - it goes on and on. We were treated to wine and nibbles and a tour of several of the rooms of the palace before the concert. The concert was done by a tenor and a mezzo-soprano, accompanied by a pianist. They sang traditional opera pieces and some more modern selections. It was delightful. A bit of culture during our two-week long floating food, culture and history lesson.

    Rast in Rastatt

    September 5 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Raststatt ist bekannt für sein Residenzschloss. Es wurde im frühen 18. Jahrhundert erbaut. Wir haben uns auf ein Zimmer mit Klimaanlage gefreut, da es doch die letzten Nächte etwas warm war. Einen erholsamen Schlaf hatten wir trotzdem nicht. Der Feuermelder im Zimmer hatte mindestens zwei Fehlalarme. Und jedes Mal hörte er auf, als wir senkrecht im Bett standen. Na ja, wenigstens sind wir schnell wieder eingeschlafen nach dem vielen Radfahren.Read more
