Travel Tips for Altenburg

Don't give AIDS a chance, 2009 series

by Nemorino

Photos:
1. Morning after in a student's pad
2. Morning after in a business hotel

On my Germany page I have several Local Customs tips on the "Don't give AIDS a chance" advertisements, especially the very clever 2004/2005 series.

In Altenburg I saw two new ones, from the 2009 "morning after" series. In the first we see a student's pad with a mattress on the floor, a skateboard and electronic keyboard propped up in the corner, CDs, loudspeakers, magazines, gym shoes (trainers), a bra and light summer dress on the floor.

In the middle there are two choices: Herz erobern (capture someone's heart) with a condom in the box, or Aids riskieren (risk getting Aids) with no condom.

In the second photo we are in a business hotel with crumpled white sheets on the bed, a white shirt, business suit and tie laid out on the bed along with the hotel room key. The two choices here are Konkakte knüpfen (establish contacts) with a condom in the box, or Aids riskieren (risk getting Aids) with no condom.

German-Turkish Society

by Nemorino

There are only 582 foreigners living in Altenburg, that's 1.6 % of the current population of 35,735.

Some of them have formed this society called the Deutsch -Türkischer Kultur und Schuldnerhilfeverein e.V. (German-Turkish Cultural and Debtors' Assistance Society). From the name of the society you can see where some of these foreigners come from and what one of their main problems is.

The society's website says it is concerned with "family integration, family assistance and also family development at a multicultural level, not only for 'Turkish families' but also for other families and children with integration problems."

Christmas Market

by Leipzig

About 20 stalls and a nice Christmas tree with characters of famous German tales around. Situated in front of the town hall at market square.

Prices in 2002:

Glühwein: € 1.00 (less then average)
Bratwurst: € 1.50 (about average)
Quarkbällchen (Curd Balls): € 0.30 / piece (less then average)

City Hall and Market Square

3. Evening at the Market Square

The Renaissance-style City Hall was built on the Market Square from 1561 to 1564, and is still used by the city administration.

The restaurant "Ratskeller" is located in the City Hall, with additional outdoor seating on the Market Square when the weather permits.

A short (but well timed)visit to Altenburg

by bonio

"Just a day and a bit!"

Arrived at Altenburg (Leipzig - about an hour away) airport, probably the smallest airport I've used, see later tip, spent one night in town at a recommendable hotel, enjoyed an excellent meal and fortunately our visit coincided with the skatsbrünnen fest, very good.
All mentioned in tips later.
