    Nazi Party Rally Grounds, Nuremberg

    October 19, 2017 in Germany

    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.

    Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt

    December 5 in Germany

    Pack up and let ready to go again....2 hr drive to Nuremberg. I was able to enjoy the view of the expansive fields. On the way we saw the tall posts surrounded by netting this is where the hops grow. German beer has not additives on hops, yeast, barley and water and they don’t sell other beers. Once we reached the Ramada Inn we waited for our local tour guide. We made two stops on the tour one was the park from where Hilter made his propaganda speeches. The speech was 5 hours long, in 89% weather and over 100k people. The other stop was in front of the. Courthouse were the Nuremberg trials we held, it was in front of the prison. One of the only buildings left standing after the war. Nuremberg was know for making motorcycles. We drove around the city which is still standing from the war. The Christmas market is inside of the city. We had lunch at Bratwustr Roslein and which was recommended as a favorite place to eat bratwustr. The plate arrive with 6 (breakfast sausage links), warm potato salad and sauerkraut. They tasted like regular breakfast sausage. We lunched with our Canadian Gal Pals - 3 sisters - Joyce, Betty Ann, Sharon (looks just like Shirley McLain) and Sharon( from Las Vegas). After lunch we headed out to the market. BRRRR is was cold!! Each vendor has a booth that looks like a village cottage, twigs, birch logs, pine swags, and twinkle lights. In this Market there were about 8 rows of stalls the main booths:
    *Candy,sweets, ginger bread
    *Wooden toys
    *Angels with no arms
    *Brautwurst
    “Potato
    I bought a handmade hand puppet for Miles, it reminded me of him :). We stayed until 4:15 and since it gets dark around 4:30 we were able to enjoy seeing things lit up. Cari noticed that all the lights are small white, not like our which are colored. We took to bus back to the hotel: Ramada Inn, we walked into the room and it smelled like smoke..yuk and they upgraded us to the best room in the hotel. Suite with 2 bathrooms, 2 balconies but the duvet cover didn’t even cover the top of the bed....weird, and there was such low light. The hotel gifted us a bottle of Castelli wine which we gave to Robert. We met the girls for a drink in the bar before dinner in the hotel. Back to the room, rest for tomorrow.
