rothenburg-mini
Trip date: July 6, 2014
Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a small town in the middle of Germany. I think nowhere else in Europe can you find such a number of original buildings dating from the middle ages.
We did a stopover on our way from the Alps. Rothenburg is a few kilometers from highway number 7 leading from the south border of Germany to the north. We knew that Rothenburg is a romantic city, but what we saw surpassed our expectations.          Read More...

FERROPOLIS - INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE

ferropolis mini
Trip date: April 26, 2015
This destination is something special. Nothing for lovers of romance, nothing for those who admire historical sights.
This is a truly industrial experience. A place where there was the coal mine for about 40 years. A place of environmental disaster and a place where thousands of people worked. Read More...

Trip dates: May 4-5, 2014
When I was speaking with my brother about my German experiences, he replied that he would be interested in some major music or sport events. And the talk turned to sport. More precisely to Bundeliga. The average attendance on Bundesliga football matches is almost 40000 people, the largest number in the world. It must be very expensive, we thought. Read More...

Trip dates: September 21-22, 2013
Our next trip was inspired by question of my colleague, “Have you ever been to Motor Show”? He meant one of the biggest auto fair when alternates between Frankfurt and Paris every other year.
It was in 2013 that Motor Show took place in Frankfurt and because it was in Germany, I started to plan the trip.
Frankfurt is known as financial center with skyscrapers and I love the views from the towers and lookouts.  This is probably the reason why first of all I found the observation deck at Main Tower. The platform is at a height more than 200 m with the stunning views across the city. Read More...

Trip dates: October 27-28, 2013
So far probably our best trip to Germany. Me and my son (12 years at that time) have decided to see Concorde, the most beautiful aircraft ever. I had heard about museum with this plane. I like this machine, I admired it even as a child. When looked at website, I found on the web the Concord and lots of other amazing exhibits - among other things, the brother of Concord - Russian plane TU 144. In addition I found out that there is another great destination – Speyer – small historical city with the similar technical museum in a short distance from Sinsheim.

Trip dates: March 29-30, 2013
Because we were excited by the trip to Sinsheim and Speyer, I started to search for another destination. And I found Autostadt in Wolfsburg. There were a lot of recommendations on web and even on TV. The photos of the buildings inside look really great. The Wolfsburg is not close to Prague and so I decided to plan this trip for two days and to combine it with a visit of the Phaeno in Wolfburg. Phaeno is interactive science center. It is located in the interesting modern building that is designed by prominent architect Zada Hadid. Read More...
