On Tuesday, October 26th, 2010, my parents took me on a daytrip to Coburg. We parked in a Parkhaus in the center of town and made our way through narrow streets

 across a Marktplatz

 and after a bit of shopping (no yarn!) we had lunch in a Gasthaus.

After lunch, we hiked up to the Fortress Coburg. If you are not into historical buildings or fortresses built over several centuries, which were destroyed, restored, renovated, made accessible to the public and that house numerous historical artifacts and an art collection, don't bother reading on. ;)

  4. Karin -

    As soon as I get home I have to share these with my daughter, she is a history teacher and will love seeing these pictures. You did a beautiful job capturing the feel of the area. Thank you for allowing all of us to enjoy your vacation .


  5. Wow! These are beautiful shots Karin. You have a real talent for framing the shot. It makes me feel like I was there with you. Very nice!
