Oh right, the Spring Festival and Rothenburg.
Last weekend, Husband and I had so much fun! On Friday night we went to the Fruhlingsfest (There is supposed to be the two little dots above the u in that word... but, how in the heck do you put it in there?!), anyway Fruhlingsfest pretty much means Spring Festival. It happened here in Ansbach.
|There was a band. They sang mostly German songs, crazy German songs... But there were some classics in there too!!|
Husband and I were not planning on drinking much, but, I did not feel like beer... Husband was nice enough to go buy me a glass of wine. So off he goes, and comes back with a WHOLE BOTTLE...
|Wine; How classy people get drunk.|
Don't mind the terrible picture...
|My husband is so silly!|
|It's a quaint little town with walls around it! <3 it was GORGEOUS. It's such an old town. With tons of neat buildings to look at! :)|
|Everyday between 1100 and 1300 on the hour, the bell chimes and the two windows to the left and right of the clock face open up to reveal a dude on the left, and a dude on the right (mechanical). The dude on the right holds up a GIANT Beer Stein full of over 3 liters of wine. Anyway... the legend says that they have this drinking contest and the village would not be taken over if the guy can drink all of that wine in one sitting. You can read more about it here. (Unfortunately inside the windows was too dark, so I could not get a good picture with the iPhone).|
|The oldest building in Rothenburg, built in 950...|
|Husband was a very, very, bad boy... And needed to be punished. (At the entrance of the Kriminalmuseum).|
|There were a TON (AND I MEAN A TON) of knick knacks to buy... There were so many shops. There is even a Christmas store that is open all year 'round!|
It was a gorgeous day that day. Husband and I were happy though to finally sit down, relax, and have some beverages at a not-so-crowded bar:
|Husband had some of the his favorite beer so far...|
|And I had some fizzy bubbly water. :) I love getting water in a glass bottle, with a [matching] wine glass to go with it. It makes me feel classy!|
If you get a chance to come to Germany, I definitely would recommend seeing the sites there in Rothenberg, it is just absolutely gorgeous! [As is ANY part of Germany I have been to!]
