The church was right next to the hotel, as was the Christmas Market. // Das Hotel liegt direkt neben der Kirche , samt Weihnachtsmarkt.

Summary:

Rothenburg is picturesque and charming. It is also quite small. I managed to see the highlights in about 2 hours. If you live near Ladenburg or Heidelberg, as I do, it isn’t all that awe-inspiring. It is also about 1,45 minutes by car from where I live, so I didn’t have to book a hotel. But since I expected to take longer to explore the town, I hadn’t wanted to take any chances. If you drive a big car, I suggest you pick a parking spot outside the city wall, because the streets are really narrow. I barely could squeeze my VW Golf through. Plus, it is only about a 5 minute walk, if that long, to get to the town center if you pick a parking space outside. It could save you a lot of stress.

 

Fazit:

Rothenburg hat Charm und ist wirklich schön. Da ich aber in der Nähe von Ladenburg und Heidelberg wohne, und auch die Pfalz mit ihren kleinen Dörfchen auch nur einen Katzensprung entfernt ist, hat mich Rothenburg jetzt nicht so umgehauen. Ich bin in knapp 2 Stunden einmal durch Rothenburg durch und dann wieder heim gefahren. Das Hotelzimmer hätte ich also nicht gebraucht. Ich wäre geblieben, wenn ich mich im Zimmer wohl gefühlt hätte, mir war es aber zu dunkel (die Kamera hatte trotz 2,8 Blende Schwierigkeiten zu fokussieren) und ungemütlich. Ich rate auch dazu das Auto außerhalb der Stadtmauer zu parken. Mein Hotel hatte einen eigenen (abenteuerlichen) Parkplatz, aber zum Hotel zu fahren ist sogar mit einem 4er Golf spannend. Die Gassen sind nicht nur eng und verwinkelt, sondern teilweise auch sehr steil. Als Tagesausflug war der Trip wirklich schön, besonders als der Regen nachließ und die Sonne schien. Aber für einen längeren Aufenthalt für mich nicht interessant.

Christmas 2014 – a recap

Just an assortment of random Christmas photos. I made myself some presents (some of the Fossil jewelery) because it have been some tiring weeks. But I feel ready to take on the new year. I even bought the cats another one of those ‘beds’ because they fought over it and the new one is dutifully ignored.

I hope you had a wonderful time, as well.

Happy Holidays

This should be my permanent header… but honestly, I have been so busy with looking for an apartment to buy, work, writing and lastly being sick for 8 weeks and developing asthma. Oh the fun. Not.

But I wanted to wish you Happy Holidays, whatever you are celebrating. I hope that the days to come will be good to you and if they are hard: hang in there, it’ll be better. I know. I have had my struggles during the last days of the year.

Have some photos. We tried. But Wesley spooked at the backdrop and flash and Leeloo was only in it for the food. I gave up. 🙂

The cats and I are wishing you all wonderful holidays. Allow yourself to enjoy. Eat. Relax. Stay calm. And if they are difficult for you to endure, hang in there. Watch Pushing Daisies, it’s only two seasons and will make you happy, I promise.<3

And have my favorite song of all time (warning, it’s sad but I love Robert singing. He needs to do more of it):

Robert Downey, Jr – Wish I had a river
