Friedrich Schiller & Eger / Cheb
Friedrich Schiller came quite often to Eger / Cheb in order to seach for material for his "Wallenstein-Trilogie".
Schiller is also "responsible" for the fact, that the Waldstejn-family became famous mainly by their german name of Wallenstein.
More traces about the Wallenstein-family are to be found on some of my other pages :
Spending a 1/2 day in Cheb
"Nothing to compare with Prague"
On my way going home from Wuerzburg, Germany, I've spent an afternoon in Cheb. This city, what can i say......it's quiet, not attractive but covered with prostitution. Cheb is just ten minutes drive to the German border. Quite a lot of people visit this place for a short break. Some of them will chose to have a go! Some others wants only a good cheap dinner and relax, like me! It's not the same thing if you've seen Prague before. I'm a bit of disappointed but for a half- day trip, it's alright!
