I spent most of the time in Germany in these two small towns of Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Bamberg, although I made transits in Berlin and Munich. My main aim of going to these small towns was to see the traditional German architectures as both of the two are well-preserved medival towns. Rothenburg is a small walled town along the Romantic Road which now near exclusively caters for the tourists. And there are lots of them. It was built upon the River Tauber during the middle age, and the buildings are well preserved. The main attractions are the Rathus, the town hall, and the city wall. I stayed here for a few nights, but many visitors are going there from Munich or Numberg for a day trip. It actually depends on what one is after: ... read more

Joe and I took a trip to see the newlys weds, Shawn and Matt, in Germany. You could feel the Fall season with colors of red, orange and yellow surrounding the country.

Weekend before last we decided to see a little more of Germany and took a ride to Bamberg, about an1 1/2 hour drive north of Ansbach. Bamberg was founded about 900 A.D. and was fortunate not to suffer any bombing damage during World War II. A thousand-year cultural and architectural site, UNESCO declared Bamberg a world heritage city in 1976. It is a beautiful town with unforgettable small and winding alleys with picturesque views at almost every turn. A city of about 70,000, Bamberg’s residence brag that their city is built on seven hills like Rome, has a network of waterways like Venice, and that it’s Altstadt (Old Town) is as beautiful as Prague’s. Although we only spent a couple hours sightseeing, it is a place that we definitely plan on returning to for a ... read more
