It has been a while I haven’t written, but I was busy enough with my exams.
Anyway, I would like to tell you about the last couple of places I visited. Since in each location I didn’t do a lot, I decided to put them together.
First of all, here are some pictures of a park and a Japanese garden that I visited in Bonn. It was very relaxing to walk in these places and I definitely noticed how much Germans, especially during weekends, like walking: it is a lifestyle that everyone should follow!
Then in Brühl, which is not far away from Bonn, I visited the Augustusburg Palace, which, aside from its cultural importance (it has been listed as UNESCO cultural World Heritage Site), offers visitors the opportunity of enjoying a walk in the nice garden near it, especially during sunny days (though in Germany it is often windy or cloudy).
Almost on the way back home, another stop in Cologne, where I tried this delicious cake and then I walked across the Hohenzollern bridge, sticking to the areas where people leave their padlocks.
Another small trip that I took was in Münster. Here are some pictures of the main square, of some churches that I visited and of the LWL Museum.
An interesting place where to take good pictures is the Aasee, a lake with this small pier where you can walk or sit to enjoy the sound of the water. Then I shortly stopped at the parking of the university and took a picture to show you how much Germans are used to riding their bicycles. On the way back a stop at a bakery to take a picture of this heart-shaped-bred (one of the different varieties offered by bakeries in Germany) and at another one to try this delicious cinnamon roll, Franzbrötchen, which had been recommended to me, but I hadn’t found it in Paderborn.
Till next time,
