Trip Report Advent Season

Jump to last reply

We spent 12 days in Germany visiting some less frequented towns and their Christmas Markets. The Markets are never the focus of these trips but a pleasant addition to the overall experience. I will break my posts by different towns.

The flights from Salt Lake City to Atlanta and then on to Frankfurt am Main were uneventful and endless. With a group of diseases otherwise known as getting old, these long flights are a torture chamber. The airline food stood between us and starvation; that is all that one should expect from airline food. One perk this time, we were pre-checked by TSA. We could keep our shoes on and bypass posing for naked pictures. It is probably discouraging for the screening personnel to see a 68 year old without clothes .

Our first stop was Aschaffenburg, my favorite of the trip. We stayed at the Hotel Cafe Fischer. Nice folks, good breakfast and decent size room. Aschaffenburg has some tourist attractions but is not principally a tourist town. The weather was mild and sunny. We visited Johannisburg Schloss (palace) grounds the first day and city park the next, taking advantage of the weather. Good to be alive days. The second day we visited the museum at the Schloss. Not bad. Many medieval paintings and an exhibit of a more contemporary painter, Frederico Von Rieger. A pleasant few hours in the morning.

We had two good meals, one at the Theater Krause and another at an Italian restaurant just off the main square. A good meal, and a glass or two of wine will usually make a day for me.
