The 'Krämerbrücke' in Erfurt, a bridge with houses on top - the river is called Gera and Joy had a quick bath:
On our arrival at the four star hotel, Joy went straight to the shower and unmistakingly told me, that she was thirsty - and hearing a horse carriage (a tourist attraction!), she probably wondered, why she could only see the rooftops from the twelfth floor!
Some of you already know that I am a musician (violoncello), Johann Seabstian Bach is my favourite composer: He was born and christened in Eisenach; his remains are buried in Leipzig:
That particular Saturday, Leipzig could bost itself of one further attraction: Joy's charme and sometimes clownish behaviour brought many a smile on peoples faces and I think next time I will take a basket or put a hat on the ground to gather some Euros to spoile her with a 'Thüringer Bratwurst'.
This is the church from where the peace marches started, that played an important role in the opening of the inner German border. Everybody was welcome, even Joy!
Our next stop was Quedlinburg; here you can see the town hall of this beautiful place, well worth to be part of the UNESCO world heritage:
Some details of the beautiful houses:
Some friendly inhabitantsand another fountain - the 'kiss' photo was staged to the amusement of the passerbys with the help of a piece of dried chicken neck ...
One special postcard photo from our next stop Wittenberg to Kerstin:
In and arround the 'Schlosskirche' of Wittenberg:
And one last photo inside the last city, we visited (while passing through): The rebuilt 'Freuenkirche' in Dresden:
So you're tired of sightseeing now? So are we!
