Stuttgart! Stayed in Sachsenheim with some wonderful friends and had a wonderful time in the surrounding area and the city for 4 days. It is really lovely (partly because there weren't many tourists), but mostly because of the people and it's wonderful charm.
Our excellent tour guides showed us the highlight of Stuttgart today. First stop was the Mercedes-Benz museum, covering 130 years of German automotive history. It was a wonderful display of cars, such works of art, and fascinating history. For those inclined I'm sure the tech story was just as good. One of my favourites in the room of celebrity cars was the Popemobile, the old fire engine and the London bus also. Then it was on to the Bibliotheque, the Municipal library, a stunning building. Then a gentle stroll through the cemetery and coffee (ice cream, hot chocolate ....) in Schlossplatz. For a couple of members of our group the purchase of fidget spinners was also a winner. We ended the day with a tour of the coveted market.Read more
We came back to Stuttgart for round two. This time round we visited the wonderful old city, went up the TV Tower, relaxed in the town square and visited a model train shop. The Stiftskirche was really lovely. Sachsenheim was also very good with trips to the local pool and excellent times exploring the neighbouring villages of Bietigheim and Bissingen.Read more
Our last day on the Main was an easy ride to Wertheim, then the train to Stuttgart. Changing trains in Laud was tricky, the timetable said we had 4 minutes! It didn't work, the small train from Wertheim had steep steps, hard to get bikes up and down and there was a rush of people trying to get on as we got off. So we spent a quiet couple of hours in Laud waiting for the next train.
Navigating from the station to our Pension, only a couple of kilometres, needed a lot of help from google maps, a major construction site in front of the station had as heading off in the wrong direction.
Susanne, Greg, Nathan and Rubin arrived to meet us about 5 minutes after we got here. Fantastic to see them. We did a quick tour of the city centre, then had a great meal of local specialties. Nathan was a big help translating the menu and advising us on local specialties.Read more
Stopped at the Christmas market for some glüwein. The rain eventually turned into snow.
Packen, räumen oder was sonst noch so ansteht.
Langsam wird es ernst und wir sind in den letzten Zügen unsere Bude auszuräumen, für den Zwischenmieter klar zu machen und unser Zeug zu packen. Nachdem wir letztes Wochenende noch schön auf der Hochzeit von Caro und Michi abgerockt haben (danke nochmal an Opa und Oma fürs Babysitten) sind wir es diese Woche langsam angegangen. Endlich mal Zeit Kaffee trinken zu gehen, uns von Hubse sagen zu lassen, dass unsere Bude grade wie eine ungarische Studenten WG aussieht und nach Grillen gestern noch stilecht morgen bei den Walters Bürger äh Burger zu grillen. Die Vorfreude steigt und wir denken immer wenn Elli wüsste was da am Montag auf sie zukommt... oder auf uns wenn man seine super aktive Tochter die keine 5 min still sitzen kann 10 h in eine Aluröhre pfercht. Wir werden es raus finden.Read more
