The Gäubodenmuseum is an absolute treasure trove of early German, Celtic, Roman, and Bavarian artifacts. You’ll find the museum in a rebuilt patricians house on Frauenhoferstraße, off the main pedestrian zone in Straubing. The museum was recommended to me by our tour bus driver, Bene. (And here’s a travel tip- when the bus driver recommends […]

How did a warehouse district manage to get UNESCO Status? Well, the Speicherstadt Hamburg is incredibly photogenic… rows of neo-Gothic brick warehouses tower over the water connected by bridges (fun fact, Hamburg has more bridges than Venice). But it’s more than just looks. Think of the Speicherstadt Hamburg as a city within a city. An […]

Things you expect to see in Munich… Beer, Lederhosen, churches, Biergarten…. But, unless you’ve been clued in, you don’t expect to see surfing in Munich. Munich might be 300 miles from the nearest Ocean, but that doesn’t stop expert surfers from carving through the waves. It turns out, a man made wave in an arm […]

Up Dürer Strasse  from the Nuremberg Spielzeug Museum (Toy Museum), just down the hill from the Kaiserburg, you’ll find the Albrecht Dürer House.

The Nuremberg Spielzeugmuseum is considered be among the best Toy Museums in the world. This makes sense, since Nuremberg has been a hub of toy making since the Middle Ages. HUNDREDS of toy makers had their workshops along the cobblestoned streets and ways. Not only that, Nuremberg is the home of the first mass produced […]

When I stepped in to the Klosterkirche (Monastery Chapel) in Weltenburg, it took my breath away. The chapel contains a masterclass in Baroque Architecture. Every surface decorated with carvings and paintings…gilding and statuary… all from the minds of the Asam Brothers.  Now, while planning my trip to Germany in 2019, I stumbled across a suggestion […]

We’ve all sung it hundreds of times, in German, Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht or in English, Silent Night.  It’s THE Christmas song in most German households… the last song before the end of the Christmas Eve church Service, the last song before the Bescherung. Silent Night is a song we all know the words to […]
