Trip Report Good Spring Weather

Jump to last reply

Three times in recent years, we have visited the Christmas Markets in Germany. It is a wonderful time to see the country; but, I was getting a little tired of cold weather. I planned a trip in March/April. My wife was less enthused. She wanted to hold out for another Christmas Market trip. We compromised: I would go in the spring and we would go again in December. Not a bad deal from my standpoint.

I flew from Salt Lake City to Frankfurt am Main via Chicago arriving in the early morning. I took a direct Regional Express train from the airport to Würzburg. Frankfurt airport has a variety of train ticket machines. I got one that you toggle between local network trips and Die Bahn trains. It took me a couple tries to get it right: sleep deprivation and old age at work.

It is a modest walk from the Würzburg train station to the Hotel St. Josef where I was staying. Once there I had one of my few disappointing moments of the trip. The St. Josef had closed its restaurant. It was a plain fare place whose food I had enjoyed many times before. The owner/chef checked me in. He assured me that I would find other places to eat (true). I assured him that I would nevertheless miss his cooking. The conversation was in a mix of German and English that was common through out the trip.

I was stationed in Würzburg in the 1970's. One of my goals this trip was to spend more time in walking the green belt park that was put in place of the former town wall. I was in luck for my two day stay. The weather was beautiful. Birds were singing: Amsels (Black bird most like the American Robin), Kohlmeisen (Chickadees), etc. Wild flowers decked many of the park's small meadows. Some trees, including the Japanese Cherry Trees, were in bloom. My pictures:
