My wife and I on a great hike yesterday. Total 24 kilometers on foot. Beautiful nature and scenery on a very hot day.

Christmas in Lübeck

P51224-135146_Fotor Lübeck is a beautiful city in the Christmas time. There are everywhere decorations and market stands where you can buy sweets, cakes, Glühwein (mulled wine) and decorations for your X-mas tree. But what I like about Lübeck are these narrow streets.
Amra and I enjoyed this time of the year in Lübeck. The Christmas markets are legendary – a lot of nice food and delicious Glühwein. Oh, before I forget it, we can definitely recommend a great restaurant, almost 500 years old and with such an easy name to pronounce: Schiffergesellschaft.

This part of Germany has unique house building style with characteristic roofs.
