This church is in the field below the Fairy Tale castle and just before you head into Fussen. it caught my attention.
The fairytale castle
Stammtisch means reserved - a table set apart for a local administrator - basically a person or family who is a regular to the restaurant. If they'd come in while we ate, we would have had to love to an new table.
Hand carved painting of the fairytale castle. The detail is quite amazing!
Eventually my nativity scene will be complete (like this). All hand carved by a local artist, hand painted as well. It's so beautiful!
This is just one glimpse of all the nativity scenes you can choose from. If you ant find what your looking for here - it's possible you don't know what your looking for!
I've been on the search for gingerbread all week, taste testing all I find. It's very different here than what I'm used to!
You can't not be here and pass on the sausages!
Lebkuchen: In all its glory!
After seeing these virtually everywhere I finally had to ask someone about them because I noticed a few things: no one was eating them, they are plastic wrapped and they are everywhere. Apparently these are NOT meant to be eaten, rather to be given as gifts to hang around the home. Who knew.
These little fig creations are a staple here in Nuremberg and they are darlin!
Gluhwein: I enjoy this drink and decided I wanted a souvenir from this market so I kept the cup! You can return it for a refund if you want as well (which I did previously).
his is (or was) a hospital in the background. But it's also one of the most shot image taken in Nuremberg.
Hangman's home: That tower you see - it used to house the hangman here in Nuremberg.
I have multiple photos taken in this location - our tour guide knew I'd love this bridge!
Does this look familiar? This is where Hitler used to stand to address his troops and the crowd. The area is huge. It's also one of the rare photos you'll see of my daughter (with our guide in the background)
The romantic road of Regensburg: This little market is quaint and homey and full of charm. You walk along paths decorated with lighted rope.
A real castle! The Regensburg Christmas Market is set along the grounds of their palace. Beautiful!
Look who I saw! St. Nicholas himself!
Basket weaver. If I had room in my luggage, you can bet I would have bought a handmade basket from this man!
