    Day 60a. Tübingen, Germany

    October 3, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Tübingen is a city in southwest Germany and home to one of Europe’s oldest universities. In the old town, Stiftskirche St. George’s Collegiate Church is a late-Gothic church with stained-glass windows and city views from its tower.
    The Stiftskirche was built by Peter von Koblenz in 1470 and was one of the first to convert to Martin Luther's Protestant church. It maintains several "Roman Catholic" features, such as patron saints.

    Day 60b. Tübingen, Germany

    October 3, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    We stopped for coffee in the main Market place square with its beautiful City Hall and 17thC Neptune's Fountain. The ornately painted 15th-century City Hall is topped with a functioning astronomical clock. The City Hall was built with three stories in 1435, in 1508 heightened by a fourth level, and in 1511 decorated with an artfully made astronomical clock by Johannes Stöffler. The clock, which still functions, shows the course of the stars and the phases of the moon.Read more

    Day 60. Tübingen, Germany

    October 3, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    The sun shone for us today for our outing to the Swabian University city of Tübingen. Andreas borrowed a 9 seater Mercedes people mover from his sister so we could all travel together: Inge, Bettina, Andreas, Isabel, Ardian, Ron and I.
    Thüringen has 87,544 inhabitants and 28,000 students and 7 universities and offers 330 different degrees.
    We walked through the Medieval old town centre to the Stifts Church, climbed the bell tower then up to the castle.
    We watched the famous “Stocherkahn“ boats which hold about 20 people. This boat is exclusive to Tübingen navigated by a long wooden pole and offers a scenic view of the picturesque Neckar waterfront with the famous Hölderlin Tower.

    September 28, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Once again we had lovely weather for our last day in London. We decided to take a walk around Chelsea and chanced upon the home of Thomas and Jane Carlyle. The house is set up as it was in the mid nineteenth century. We then spent a couple of hours at the Physic Garden; including a wonderful lunch, tour and then afternoon tea. Walking round Chelsea is certainly checking out how the other half live! In the evening, we headed into central London to watch The Toxic Avenger; great show.Read more

    September 29, 2017 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Today we left London and it was wet and miserable. We flew Easy jet to Stuttgart, the plane was full of loud Poms wearing lederhosen; not a pretty sight. We had a long drive to Tubingen due to road works. Met Liz and John and all the English rellies for dinner. Looking forward to the wedding tomorrow. 🤗Read more

    September 30, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    So today was the big day. We had beautiful weather to start with, but by late afternoon the rain started. The day started with a short but steep walk up to The Wurmlinger chapel for the wedding ceremony; Joanna looked lovely in Liz's old wedding dress. Following the ceremony, we made our way down the hill to enjoy cake and coffee. We also released many heart shaped balloons which had been the theme on the invitations. We then set off on our walk to Tubingen through the forest; stopping for champagne on the way. We then convened at the Museum Restaurant for the reception. A long, but very special day.Read more

    Stocherkahnfahrt, Sommerhitze & Spätzle

    July 31, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Am bisher heißesten Tag des Jahres entscheiden wir uns für eine Stadtbesichtigung. Als gute Tourist*innen - und Janne als Touristin in ihrem eigenen Wohnort - treten wir, nach der Begehung der Neckarinsel, eine Fahrt im Stocherkahn an. Im schwäbischsten aller Dialekte (aus Laiensicht) erklärt uns der kettenrauchende Fahrer einige geschichtsträchtige Fakten über das Städtle. Janne weiß mit ihrem hohen Bildungsgrad zu glänzen als sie das Gründungsjahr der Universität Tübingen mit 1477 richtig datiert.
    Im Anschluss spazieren wir durch die Altstadt, zum Schloss, zur Uni und entspannen uns im Bota, bevor wir uns in Jannes Lieblingskneipe niederlassen. Hier kommt es dann zu einem erweiterten Erfurt-Wiedersehen als Nana noch zu uns stößt, um mit uns schwäbische Tapas zu genießen. Um dem Abend einen gebührenden Abschluss zu verleihen schauen wir am Ende aus Nostalgiegründen Shopping Queen. 2 von 3 Personen können dem Spannungsbogen dieser Sendung leider nicht mehr folgen, weil sie die Sonneneinstrahlung des Tages so ermüdet hat.
