Last Donnerstag (Thursday) was a German holiday (Christ Himmelfahrt = the day of Christ’s return to heaven after his resurrection) and so we made a day trip to Würzburg. We hopped a train with snacks, a few magazines and our umbrella’s.
The Residenz Palace was our first stop. This palace was built in the early 1700’s, and is considered “an important work of German Baroque architecture”. Apparently it’s important enough that they don’t allow you to take pictures inside, making this post sort of…anticlimactic.
Despite my generally rebellious nature, I did not take any illicit photographs inside the Palace. The ceiling panting picture here above, is just a photo of a photo-postcard in the Palace’s gift shop. 🙂
After a few hours wandering the Palace and it’s gardens we walked through the town and up to the Fortress Marienberg:
People don’t stay inside on rainy days!
umbrella = regenschirm
rain = regnet
