Another Monday and I seriously can’t believe that I have been home for almost three weeks already 🙁
It’s going way too fast.
I hope you all had a great weekend just like we did.
I thought that I’d share some more sightseeing photos with you today. Are you getting tired of them yet? If you do then I’m sorry but I don’t have anything else to share with you right now.
Last week we went to Aschaffenburg. While we have been there many times before, we never took the kids to see the Pompejanum. What is it, you ask 😉 well let me explain:
Inspired by the excavations in Pompeii, King Ludwig I of Bavaria had this building constructed from 1840 – 1848 in the form of a Roman dwelling house. The frescoes and mosaic floors of the colourful rooms were designed according to Roman patterns.
It was so interesting to see how the Romans used to live and the kids really enjoyed it. Of course their favorite part was the toilet. Go figure!
The building provides a very apt background for the exhibition of original art works from the State ancient art collection. There are Roman portraits, statues and decorative marble pieces, a kitchen, business and living rooms, objects from daily life and further objects from ancient households.
The presentations are complimented with comprehensive documentation on the history of Pompeii.
I loved looking at all the mosaics and ceiling paintings.
Of course we also had to visit the castle again, which we have been to before as well, but the kids never grow tired of it. I thought that maybe you’d like to see it too.

Aschaffenburger Stiftskirche also got a visit:
|Aren’t they cute? But you probably saw this already on Instagram, didn’t you?!|
And lunch at “Schlappeseppel”:
|My son can’t get enough of soups, not kidding. I could wake him up in the middle of the night and he’d eat it|
Like I mentioned on Friday, we are going on a little trip until Thursday or Friday and I don’t know when I’ll be able to post. Sorry!
