Weekend Trips! Continued...


I absolutely ADORE this charming town. Not only is the history of this town extremely interesting, and still present in many ways, but it is incredibly lovable for its beautiful German character and personality.  We are lucky enough to live less than thirty minutes away from this gem so it was painless to hop in the car with two of our buddies and drive there for the famous Night Watchman's Tour. We found one of the several free parking lots, outside of the wall, and then we walked into the medieval city and found our way to the city centre. There are so many things to see and places to enjoy in this adorable town- from restaurants, pubs, and cafes, to shops, parks, and historical buildings. The Night Watchman's Tour is not only informational, but very entertaining and funny- it starts at eight and all you have to do is show up in the city centre and wait for the watchman to show up (you will know its him, believe me!). At the end, simply pay the watchman his six euros, and go on your way! The tour finishes near a pub literally named Hell that is still around from the 15th century (more great information on that included in the tour), so we had to stop in. This restaurant is a MUST-visit place; great for a group, a few drinks, or a romantic dinner for two. We just had appetizers and beer, which were delicious to say the least, but our snacks had nothing on the impressive entrees we saw on neighboring tables. Cody and I can't wait to go back during the day and explore more- a lot of the stores were closed while we were there, and we would love to walk the wall and have a nice meal. This is also supposed to be the most magical Christmas Market in all of Germany- I can't wait to see it!
