    Daytrip Weserbergland

    Rinteln

    The whole area of the Weserbergland is worthwhile exploring, and if you have a car, it is extremely easy as the interesting destinations are concentrated in a relatively compact area. My personal highlights are the Old Town ensembles of Hameln, Rinteln and Lemgo, the Bückeburg Castle and Porta Westfalica (Kaiser-Wilhelm monument and viewing point).

    The Minster of Saint Bonifatius

    It is said that Hitler used this church (as many other sacred places around the country!) to store war material and ammunitions!
    How one could even think of storing horrible war material in such a beautiful place?

    This has got to be one of my most favorite things to do when visiting Germany. The German breakfast. Hard rolls, boiled eggs, juice, milk, coffee, jelly, all kinds of cut meats, you name it, it's there. I really miss the Brotchen (bread) when not in Germany.

    Here you can see a bunch of ladies out marching through the streets. The one I am signing her back is getting married that weekend. Seems as if they are having their last fling. You gave them money and selected stuff off of the board on her back. Some items were very risque!

    We stayed right in city center. City center has a great walking mall. You really never tire of the hustle and bustle, small town atmosphere here. Kristy bought her husband a hunting knife in this store.

    One of the restaurants we used to haunt was Pizza Roma. Nothing like pizza in the U.S. You could get a fried egg on your pizza here, as an example. And, the ever present German wine and beer of course. Great pizza. Let's go inside...

    You can discover Hameln and its surroundings on a bicycle tour. The Weser Bikepath is Germany’s most-traveled.

    old keys

    this is a special tip for VTer Madschick (Heinz), who is a passionate collector of old keys. There is a nice little exhibition of keys in the Pied Piper Museum of Hameln.

    The Minster of St. Bonifatius is the oldest church in Hameln.
    It doesn't look very tempting to even go in but...it is beautiful inside!

    And, even in Hameln, street musicians and acts were everywhere. Seems as if everyone is doing things like this these days. Really kind of pleasant though.

    The buildings were something to look at. Some of them date back before Columbus discovered America. Amazing!

    And the ever present McDonalds. But, I must tell you. McDonalds fare was not on our selection list for food while in Germany :-)
