But WHAT is the Lorelei? It’s not just a pile of rocks, it is a place of song and […]

This little hands-on museum is a fascinating look […]

  One of the more notorious memories of my childhood are the cages in Münster Germany. Three of them hang from the spire of the St Lambarti church, and are visible from all corners of the city, but they also turn up in my family’s photo albums. It seems like every time we visited Germany, […]

  The rather exotic-sounding Schleswig-Holstein is one of those places that, if you have heard of it at all, you are not quite sure where it is.
