Baden Baden and Heidelberg

Our traveling has come to an end now and I wanted to squeeze in one last travel post even though I usually don't post on Thursdays.

I haven't blogged about our visit to Heidelberg and Baden-Baden yet. Heidelberg is well known to Americans I'd say. We had been there with our son when he was smaller but my daughter hadn't been there and since we were visiting my aunt in Baden-Baden, we stopped in Heidelberg which isn't far away. And it's always worth a visit but the huge amount of tourists kill me every time. It somewhat takes away from the charm of everything.

The door with the famous "Witch's Bite" legend. My kids love that story.



Our little tourist taking it all in. I adore his interested mind, he just can't get enough which makes traveling with him so much more fun. I know I wasn't like that as a child:










The pharmacy museum with lots of old intact pharmacy cabinets:


I love this mansion that you can see from the castle walls:




At the Festspielhaus:


Trinkhalle:








And the gorgeous view from the Yburg ruins:




This will be my last travel post for this year. I hope I didn't bore you too much with it ;)

My love for Würzburg

Alrighty, I have another Germany post! Obviously not working on anything right now and today I will talk more about my favorite German city, Würzburg! I attended school in Würzburg, had my first (most favorite) job and loved the night live which was definitely to my parents dismay...but I had so much fun and I will never forget it. Würzburg will forever have a spot in my heart and I have to visit more than once during my trip. Hey, and shopping isn't bad either which helps.

On our second visit we started with a trip up to the Marienberg Festung another one of my kids favorite castles and we have to see it every time. I'm so glad they have the same taste as me.








As always, I'm taking plenty of photos of fancy old doors. 
Can you believe these were horse stable doors?











The huge furniture store (XXXL Neubert) that I used to work at as a visual merchandiser. It's gotten even bigger! It was fun browsing their inventory (and if you follow me on Instagram then you saw the photos of the copper fixtures I spotted, drool!) and I love thinking back of a fun job that is similar to designing the Ikea rooms, BUT there are so many versatile styles that are different from Ikea. It was the funnest job I ever had for sure and I think back with fond memories.



Würzburg city:


Skeletons are always favorited by my kids:






So many different gorgeous churches! 

Most of Würzburg was destroyed on my dad's 8th birthday in 1945 and it's unbelievable how they were able to rebuild all this history.



And the most gorgeous "Residenz" never gets old either. Can you believe, that under this huge front area are wine cellars? Huge old wine cellars... a dream come true for me ;)


And I will visit Würzburg several more times before flying back to the US, I just have to! If I'd have a pick of any city to live in in Germany, it would be Würzburg. It's not too big, not too small...just right as Goldilocks would say!

If you are getting sick of Germany posts then you have to hang in there for a while but I will be back to DIY posts again for sure ;)
