Today we will visit the third largest federal state in the south-west of Germany, namely Baden-Württemberg, whose capital is Stuttgart, but our goal will be the university city of Tübingen, which is located around the Neckar river.
After a week we return to Trier. After getting acquainted with its history we set out to visit the sights. Our first stop is the best preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps - Porta Nigra.
trips to Europe will lead us today to the West German town of Trier in Rhineland-Palatinate. One of the oldest urban settlements in Germany is of rich history, a number of architectural treasures and several attractions that we will gradually discover.
Germany has many interesting and famous places for which their architecture is typical. The lesser known town in the state of Hesse, which lies on the highway between Passau and the Netherlands, is no exception. If you are passing by, take a break into the small town called Limburg an der Lahn and relax in the romantic streets of the city.
The smell of tulips, daffodils, orchids, roses, dahlias, rhododendrons, hortenzias mix with the smell of Bodam lake. The air with this light smell goes in the speed of light breeze. Butterfly wings soar above bushes, beefy tree trunks and their bark with nice smell make the island garden beautiful.
Bremen and the port of Bremerhaven constitute an autonomous republic. Its official name is Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. It is the smallest and the poorest German Bundesland. Most industrial facilities which employ the inhabitants of Bremen are situated beyond the borders of the city in Sachsen-Anhalt which means that taxes paid by the inhabitants of Bremen don't go into the pocket of the city. However, people born in Bremen are proud of the fact that their city is a Bundesland and that they have some autonomy as well.
Lately I have travelled more and I have seen interesting laces. It is popular today to have a wellness vacation or visit some thermal spa so once I was given the opportunity to visit such a spa there was little to no hesitation.
Intercultural gardens, nude beach, sheep, birds’ singing, rusty Ferris wheel making squeaking sounds in the wind, grass on the runway of former airport – these are some of many green places in Berlin. Easy-going atmosphere is typical in Berlin. Too bad that many try to do only sightseeing without stepping in Berlin’s green.
The Land of Thuringia, full of grandiose castles, chateaus, ancient monasteries and churches, located in the middle of Germany. Thuringian towns attract its atmosphere in the narrow streets and in open squares where you can meet at every step the stand with local specialties, such as grilled Thüringer Bratwurst sausage.
Today we take a look inside another interesting theme park. We leave the United States to move over the ocean to the Old Continent.
The beauty of the rocks lays in their grey color, variety, uniqueness, and silence with which they stand in nature. The stone is inanimate but the rock breathes and beats like your heart once you are on the top. We set of to Pfaffenstein mountain and Barbarine rock pinnacle. Both of the localities are along Saxon Switzerland’s most beautiful trail.
Are you looking for a Via Ferrata where you can try all possible traps? There is rock called the Nun on the Czech-German border. A rope is winded around it as well as cramps, ladders, a bridge, overhangs, gorges, and abysses.
An icing on top of our journey in Thuringia is Weimar – a city with unimaginable rich cultural heritage. It lies on the River Inn, exactly in the center, that connects Erfurt and Jena.
