Today we have been on TV

A few weeks ago the TV station RTL asked us wether they could shoot a short report about our journeys...
We agreed with the idea.
We arranged to meet for an interview in the "Aue"
Here you can see how we did the shooting.
And here the journalist and the cameraman interviewed us.
Thank you RTL for the opportunity to be on your station today.

We visit the "Grimmwelt Kassel"

Our new hometown has a new a attraction: The Grimmwelt, a museum about the lifes of the most famous people who ever lived in Kassel - the Brothers Grimm.

Here you  can see a giant inkpot that shows how much ink the Grimms spent during their lifetime.

The Brothers Grimm are famous for their collection of fairy tales, but in fact their attempt to put together a complete dictionary of the German language is the greatest achievement of their worklife. Here you can see a collection of evidence for the use of the word "Zettel". They couldn't finish their work during their lifetime.

The long history of their dictionary is told in paper dioramas.

Here you can see frontpages of the dictionaries.

Butof course there are also fairy tales. For example: We met the frog prince.

We listened to Rumpelstiltkin  in different languages.

From the top of the building we had a great view over the roofs of Kassel.

We visit Hildesheim

Today we visited the old town Hildesheim.
 Here we met a famous local legendary figure, the Huckup.

 Roses on the streets showed us the way to Hildesheims World Heritage.

Hildesheims cathedral and the 1000 years old rosebush are the most famous sight of Hildesheim.

After the sight seeing we had some pizza at the historic market place.

Last Water Features Of The Year

We just arrived back in Kassel and went to a party. It was at a restaurant in the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe we already had visited some weeks ago. 

But it was the first time we saw the water features in action and we were lucky to see them, because the water features season is over now until next year in may.

It was really very impressive!

Then we had the opportunity to meet a local starlet, a lovely lady named Tante Lilli, who was there to entertain the party guests.
