First off, I have to say that I was completely tortured by all of my fellow awesome blog friends’ Haven photos. They had way too much fun and I’m totally envious!
But I had a great time with the kiddos too. Every year when we visit, they have several local historical sights that they can’t wait to see again.
One of those places is the town’s medieval watchtower at the entrance to the fishing district which is called the “Bayersturm”. It’s the last remaining tower of the city walls at 128 feet high and was named after the former tower guardian family “Bayer”. The tower was built around 1330-1385.
My kids are fascinated by old architecture and I love seeing them enjoy it.
There are 147 steps and my son said that he felt like Mr. Bean walking behind me on those steps. LOL! I’m afraid of heights and walk like a snail. We love Mr. Bean. Did you ever check out his movies. I know not everyone gets his humor. Here is the video that my son is talking about:
|A little spooky!|
|Pretending to work in the kitchen.|
|Lilly wants to live here like Rapunzel!|
|One of the tiny homes on the right side on the hill is where my parents live.|
|Again, St. Michael, the church that we got married in.|
Isn’t it cool?
Another one of the places they love is the local castle but I’ll show you some other time.
Lastly I have to tell you that the H&M homeline is available in the US now too. Say what? I was so shocked to read on Erin and Laur’s blog House Envy that they finally offer it. Well I ordered stuff from them for a giveaway and now it’s not even that special anymore, haha…bummer!
