    July 9, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Nach einer erfolgreichen Anreise ohne Stau, haben wir einen schönen Stellplatz direkt am Mainufer gefunden.

    Passend für uns, war direkt auf der anderen Straßenseite das Kiliani Volksfest. Einmal drüber Schlendern war natürlich Pflicht.

    Danach haben wir uns, ganz der Nase nach, hoch zur Festung Marienberg begeben. Die Aussicht war wirklich toll und besonders der Weg durch den Landesgartenschaupark war wunderschön.

    Passend zum frühen Abend waren wir dann auf der ältesten Steinbrücke über den Main, der Marienbrücke, zum Brückenshoppen (ückenschoppen ).

    Definitiv eine Tradition die uns gefällt. :-)
    Gleich noch Abendessen mit Pascal und seiner Freundin und dann war der erste Urlaubstag quasi perfekt.

    October 4, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Another overcast day in Wurzburg as we left for the guided tour of The Residenz (Wurzburg Palace)...a very opulent home for bishops and princes. We weren't allowed to take photos inside but needless to say the extravagence was unbelievable...way over the top!

    PS...I managed to find some photos online which I've attached.

    August 16 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Hosszú tervezgetés után irány Dánia, azaz Legoland. Egy emberöltővel ezelőtt többször megtettük ezt az utat Fülessel és Dórival- lehet hogy merész volt bevállalni annak idején ezt a hosszú utat- most pedig mínusz 1 lány, plusz 2 fiú. Szokás szerint az első éjszaka Würzburgan alszunk, egy nagyon jó kis B&B hotelben. A 860 km nem tűnt nagyon soknak, de a magyar határ előtt “hála a koronának” kb. 4 órát rostokolunk/araszolunk a 3 kilométeres sorban.Így aztán délutáni érkezés helyett este 10 után érkezünk.Esőben, fülledt időben szenvedünk a magyar szakaszon, de ahogy megyünk Németország felé gyönyörű napsütéses, meleg nyári idő fogad. Ahogy végre átlépjük a magyar határt stílszerűen benyomjuk a Wiener Snitzeles zsemlét és uccu neki!Korona ide vagy oda, élénk a forgalom, magyar kocsik is bőséggel. A német részen ismerős a minduntalan újra felbukkanó öreg Duna, egy helyen pedig van egy “stau” valamilyen koronás? ellenőrzés miatt, de megússzuk az orrpálcikát. A német részen nagyon érdekes, hogy mindenhol katonásan sorakoznak a napelemek nagy területen, ez azelőtt nem volt.Félúttól Áron vezet, néha lobog a hajam a 165-s sebességnél 😄, persze itt nincs sebességkorlátozás Füli és Dávci hősiesen nyomja a hosszú utat és késő este már csak az önkiszolgáló számkódos bejutást kell megoldanunk a modern kis szállodánkba hulla fáradtan. Kis körözött, csabai kolbi és vbor, majd álomba zuhanunk- én az emeletes ágy tetején -ahogy a hajón is szoktuk-Dávci meg alattam.Read more

    Hannah and Würzburg

    October 18, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    A very exciting day for us! Last night, Hannah, our new au pair, drove from her home town of Saarbrücken, over near the German/French border, to stay with us for a couple of nights, so we could meet her before she arrives in Australia at the end of next week. She brought some lovely gifts including some honey from her Uncle's hive and some homemade grape marmalade made with grapes from their place.

    Finn did his best to grill her with all sorts of hard-hitting questions such as "Do you like plums?", "Do you like cake?" and "Do you like plum cake?". He loves making plum cake, so a winner its a winner if you like plums, cake and plum cake!

    We went to visit Würzburg today, starting with a visit through the the 18th-century Residenz palace. This featured lavish baroque and rococo architecture, with particularly ornate rooms. There was a huge fresco by a Venetian artist (Tiepolo) over the main entry staircase which had us all fascinated as it also included some of the figures in the painting coming out in 3D (plaster?). It was a great effect and we spent ages staring at the ceiling in this and another room with similar room.

    We also visited the garden where I was able to spot our first German eichhörnchen (which is a very groovy way of saying squirrel). The kids had already negotiated that the first person to see one and say eichhörnchen for 1 Euro cent. I had spotted one in Austria but couldn't remember the name to say. The added bonus for this squirrel was he was a reddy-brown and had an acorn in its mouth as it disappeared into the hedge. Cute as.

    We had lunch in the main square and then went down to the river which is obviously where all the cool kids were hanging out. The river was very wide and was split at one side with a commercial lock. Two large barges pulled up as we were watching, so we waited for them to navigate through.

    Back home, we played a bit of Uno and introduced Hannah to the game of Cheat. She is now probably thinking "what sort of family encourages their children to cheat in a card game!"

    Arrival in Wurzburg

    May 14, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    The Viking Ingvi arrived in Wurzburg around 9:00 am after passing swans, locks and other things on the river. Breakfast aboard the ship was wonderful, as usual. Locks are common now, as are the peaceful birds that stay right beside the ship as it passes.Read more

    Archbishop's Residence and St. Killian's

    May 14, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    The Residence of the Archbishop is the most opulent high baroque structure I can recall seeing. The artistry and craftsmanship are unspeakably beautiful. Everything was "over the top" in this attempt to emulate the aesthetic excesses of Versailles. The little chapel with its myriad of angels and gold sun bursts transports one to the throne of God. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photographs inside.

    St. Killian's Church, despite its grizzly skeletons on the outside, was lovely inside. It is a monument to three Irish monks who brought Christianity back into Germany in the dark ages. On our way back to the bus we saw the church of St. Kilian, the site of the three Irish martyrs who brought Christianity to Franconia around 670 AD. Its white and gold interior are gloriously refreshing and joyful. The priest had just finished a mass for the Feast of the Ascension, and incense still hung heavy in the air. Without setting up a tripod, I attempted to hold the camera on a steady pew to take my slow exposures. We almost had to run back to the ship, and barely made the departure time of 6:15 pm. The activities briefing for tomorrow preceded our 7:00 pm supper with Heather and Don, joined by Mike and his wife Helen from Patuxent River, Maryland. The runny nose and the coughing is slowing down. I'm glad Glenda suggested continuing the full course of antibiotics for ten days. The doctor onboard the Royal Princess told me that I had to take that medicine for only 5 days.

    Wurzburg Residence

    June 20, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    This morning was hard to get up, so much walking and my head is starting to hurt from all the stories, so many facts but also heaps on fiction and myths.

    Unlike many castles which incorporates the styles of a number of different periods, the Würzburg Residence was built in its entirety, with short interruptions, almost within a single generation.

    The architects drew inspiration from Vienna to Paris and from Genoa and Venice to Amsterdam. The building has French château architecture, Viennese baroque and the religious and secular architecture of northern Italy.

    Unfortunately no photos are allowed inside very annoying
