I 've returned to Frankfurt. It was not so crowded because of New Year's Eve.
They are firemen.
An emergency bell ringed suddenly ,because a young man smoked in the elevator hall. Three fire engines came.
For that reason we couldn't use the elevator.
Our bus ran along the Leine. I saw the Lorelei.
Heine wrote it in his poem. This place is very famous, so I wantted to see it from my young age. But the scenery was not so fine as I expected. It was only rock wall.
This is the Statue of Lorelei. I couldn't stop here because of having no time to see it.
|There were a lot of old castles on each side of the river.
|I tasted many kinds of the German wine. The white wine is main in Germany.
There were a expensive wine called Ice Wine.
But it's too sweet to like it.
|I found a snowman in Rudesheim. This town is called a pearl of the Leine. it was small town but attractive.|
|I ate the German cuisine for the first time. It was cutlet.
It tasted good.
|Heidelberg castle was on the halfway a mountain. The wall was broken partly.
It looked like ruins.
This gate is a gate of marriage.
Heidelberg ia called a town of students. There was a one of the oldest university in the world. I was having a longing for this town.
When I lokked at this town from the castle , I was satisfied so much.
|The dark collor drink is Weissen beer. It is made from wheat.
I didn't think it tasted good. A small jug left side is "cola beer" What do you image about it ? It was mixed cola and beer. It was very strage drink but good unexpectedly.
A jug on the right side is a liter. It was so big.
|This is stewed beef. It tasted good. But the carrots are too thick and many. It was hard to eat it compleatly.|
Our bus ran on the old castle road.
I saw this catsle from view point. This is a hotel now.
Prince Charles stayed here once before.
In the summer it wil be hard to make a resavation.
The contrast of snow, church and castle is wonderful.
This meat is like hamburg.
|Nymphenburg castle.in Munich.
This is symmetric building. I could see 36paintings of ladies. They were very beautiful ladies. A guide asked us which paintings are the same.
I didn't answer. But a woman answerd correctly.
|It was very gorgeous inside. The insides of medieval building in Spain, France and Germany were all gorgeous. I imaged how great power was.|
| Left side is new and right is old Munich City Hall.
The glockenspiel of new city hall is very famous but I couldn't see it because of holiday.
Marien plaza in front of city hall was very crowded.
|I could eat German sausages I longed for a long time in the beer hall.
It tasted great. Beer is a liter.
|There were few people in the hall. I had imaged that the hall was busy and people was singing. But not. It was very quiet.|
We went south from Munich. The snow increased gradually.
Wies church is the world heritage.
It is told that a figur of Jesus Christ dropped his tears.
Then people built this church for this.
The church in snow was very beautiful.
|This is German Alps. It is 3000〜4000m high.
The top of the mountains were covered with snow.
The carriage plied between the village and castle.
The best view point was back the castle. But a board said
"Keep Off this road".
|Because I wanted to take a picture of beautiful Neuschwanstein castle by
all means, I stepped over a fence forcibly.
This is Neuschwanstejn from Marien bridge.
What a beautiful castle it is !
Lunch was fried fish. I ate meat everyday, then this lunch
|Today's dinner was chiken and fried potatos.
It tasted as usual.
Rothenburg ia small town and like a fairyland.
This house has a small gulockenspiel.
It started to play at 11 o'clock.
A mayor drank wine at a stretch.
|I went up to top of tower and saw the town there.
It looked like toyland.
|The toy and doll musium was pleasant place.
I forgot time passed
Residenz is world heritage. I was surprized at a big scale building.
|The ceiling of the big stairs hall is famous paticularly.
I didn't understand religion but it was worth of taking a look.
It was delayed for two hours.
