nuremberg

I have travelled to this place three times and each time I thought to write a blog post about my adventures. I haven’t written about Nuremberg until now because I was waiting to see the city in the winter. Even after I saw it this Christmas, this post has taken me quite a long time to publish. So I…

königswinter

When you read a name such as “Königswinter” you might think darkness and coldness… Well, although darkness is definitely part of the charm of this resort town one can also describe it as medieval architecture at its best.
