    Rotenburg an der Fulda
    1 more image

    After two days in Bad Hersfeld I cycled 21 kilometers further downstream to Rotenburg an der Fulda (spelled without an h in the middle), which turns out to be a pleasant little town with attractive half-timbered houses, and not at all a tourist trap like the one with the h on the Tauber.

    Again it was a cool, overcast day, which was fine for cycling but not so good for taking pictures. When I got to Rotenburg it started to rain, so I took the hint and took the next train to Fulda, where I changed onto a regional express for Frankfurt. Both of these trains had convenient bicycle sections with wide-enough doors, which at least in this part of Germany is now more or less standard for the regional and local trains.

    Second photo: A poster advertising an open-air performance of the opera Nabucco by Giuseppe Verdi, to be held in the castle courtyard in Rotenburg an der Fulda on August 28, 2005. (That's the Rotenburg railroad station in the background, by the way.) The poster makes no mention of who will be performing this opera -- hopefully not the same folks who did it a year ago at the Konstabler Wache in Frankfurt!

    Bicycle route R1 from Fulda to Bad Hersfeld

    I took a Regional Express train from Frankfurt to Fulda, and started cycling from there along the regional bicycle route R1 in the Fulda River Valley.

    It was a cool, overcast day, which was fine for cycling but not ideal for taking pictures.

    Third photo: I arrived two years too late to celebrate the 1000th anniversary of Mengshausen, but in plenty of time to see the opera in Bad Hersfeld.
