Limburg an der Lahn

In the middle of April I spent an afternoon in Limburg an der Lahn. The city is very small, it seems everyone knows everyone. A few historic streets have been preserved and I really liked this romantic old town. These are very small historic streets where in the evening the restaurants, taverns and bars are open, during the day many small shops and boutiques let the people rummage and the small places and houses that have been renovated and where you live instead of letting them expire , Scenic, the region around the city is just beautiful. You drive one hour from Wetzlar, my current place of work by train to Limburg. The route runs through meadows, fields, always along the river Lahn along the picturesque waterfront and you even pass some tunnels. The landscape with many valleys, valleys, hills fascinates me. The half-timbered houses in this region as well as the church buildings are often painted very colorful and there are other forms of decoration to recognize. Limburg is definitely worth an afternoon to explore ...

Weilburg

On the Easter weekend I was in Weilburg for a few hours. The town is situated on a mountain surrounded by a steep rock face and water in a valley. On top of the mountain sits a great Renaissance and Baroque complex. It is completely preserved and inside the premises are to be visited with complete furniture. Especially recommended is a guided tour of the many wings of the castle, there are real treasures and an orangery with deceptively painted wall tiles and very beautiful Renaissance murals. The facility is located in the middle of the city very nice. Also recommended is the visit to the Mining Museum and City Museum opposite. They have many old first editions and in the Mining Museum, a great deceptively real tunnel has been created underground, which leaves one astonished.

Mecklenburg

Whenever I visit my family, I feel that I am really back in business. To breathe again. To charge my reserves. I am so glad to see the green, the endless sky, the clouds with a thousand faces and the flat country with the most beautiful soft green. My little village in Mecklenburg is sleepy, nothing ever happens, and that's a good thing. It is a place of deceleration, relaxation and tranquility for me. For weeks I'm looking forward to the train journey to my homeland, every time I realize that I can no longer stand the big city, I book a train to the north. And then I go for a walk, watch animals, visit my relatives and become happy again.

Quedlinburg

I drove with my boyfriend to the small city of Quedlinburg. It is one of the most famous old towns in Germany with a center from the middle ages, surrounded by hills and still a lively city. I always dreamed about moving there, living in a small house in the old town, having a small photo store and shop in one of the houses. It is a dreamy city, inhabited by many artists, creatives and inspirational people.

Leipzig - Buildings of the Old Town

Leipzig's city center is just beautiful. I am approached almost daily by tourists, where this or that is to be found. Especially beautiful is the architecture of the houses, merged with many modern houses next door. Hardly any other city has restored its buildings of the turn of the century and earlier as beautifully as Leipzig.

Waldenburg Palace

Here are some impressions from Schloss Waldenburg. This is a beautiful romantic castle near Chemnitz, near Altenburg. A small town with a stately home on a mountain. The castle was once very magnificent, but time has left the first traces here - although the construction was re-equipped in the early 20th century.

Leipzig - Easter

My Easter was nice. I spent my time with Mr. T., this year we did not drive up north to our families, but were traveling in and around Leipzig. Through work and my university, we preferred to stay at home. My parents came over for a moment, brought me orange tulips and also made me smile. At Easter I got sweet things, that makes me happy anyway. And on Easter Sunday, we drove through the countryside as we did on a Sunday, and looked at cities, culture, and castles. I love that. Well, wonderful days that make me shine. The next few weeks you will get to see two more shoots and pictures of Schloss Waldenburg and the Altes Museum in Berlin. What would you first welcome?
