The day I had planned for the Zugspitze was cloudy as heck so instead I went to see Linderhof Palace. Although I did get a chance to go up the second highest mountain in Germany so it wasn't a total loss. There were a few clouds that day too.
compwalla , LOVE the picture! One of the reasons we loved Rothenburg so much is that we didn't have to watch all the high school band kids we were traveling with as closely as we did in London and Paris. DH and I took lovely walks in the neighborhoods outside the walls and enjoyed that as well.
Thanks! All my childhood pictures from the 70s look that new. It helps when your dad is a photographer and shot all his family vacation photos on a medium-format Bronica. I remember the Meistertrunk very vividly even aside from the photos. There was a joust, a pig roast, the crime and punishment museum, and since I spoke pretty fluent German as a kid, it was a really fun adventure. I got separated from my family after the joust and nearly gave my mom a heart attack but I asked a nice man in medieval costume for help auf Deutsch and my mother finally found me sitting on the steps of the church eating an ice cream with the guy who was dressed like a serf.
We went back there many times while we lived in Germany because my father LOVED that town and the scenery for his photography.
Wow- a Bronica medium format, how wonderful! Those photos must be such a treasure to you.
As a photographer myself that is the reason I loved Rothenburg so much too. It was so photogenic! I went to the punishment museum while I was there out of curiosity. They didn't have a joust or a pig roast. I'm glad they didn't have the pig roast myself! I spent two days there but would have loved to have spent a few more.
