Another Day in Wurzburg {Part 1}

{September 27, 2013}

Our time in Germany was coming to a close. We for sure wanted to visit Wurzburg once again, since we loved the Residence and the gardens, and wanted to see the Fortress on the hill. We took the bus from Eibelstadt, since our rental car had since been returned, and spent one last afternoon in Wurzburg. From the center of town, we started walking, walking, walking, to reach this looming image before us:

Daniel was the one to carry Natasha and at the base of the fortress walls, we found a playground where we gratefully stopped for a while. I must say, Europe has fun playgrounds.

For some reason I didn’t feel like changing lenses, so I didn’t get a wide angle view of the walls, but after climbing an incredible hill, we reached the first entryway to the castle.

Looking in…

and looking back out.

The climb just kept going uphill.

Once at the top we could look over those walls down on steep vineyards and houses below.

And of course, admire the architecture behind us.

An ancient stone watering trough for horses. I thought it was pretty cool.

The palace in the background is Kapuzinerkloster Käppele. (Yes, that link is in German. Perhaps Google can translate it for you if you don’t read German. I know I don’t…)
