A few of our favourite German places

Due to the global pandemic, we have unfortunately not been able to travel as much as we would like to lately. Hotels are closed, museums and castles are not open to visitors; all of this takes away the fun and joy of travelling.

We have been to Castell and Kitzingen

As I had already written last week we're not travelling lots at the moment, because of the COVID-19-Pandemic. Instead, we decided to get to know our new home a little better. Currently, we're living in the north-west of Bavaria in a region called Franconia. Franconia itself is split into three districts: Lower Franconia, Middle Franconia and Upper Franconia.

We have been to Karlstadt and Lohr am Main

Because of the ongoing pandemic, we have not really been away much lately. We've really stuck to the rules and not left our “block” for about two months. Now that we can finally leave our homes again we wanted to see some places in the region to a) learn more about our new home and b) not go somewhere too dangerous to not bring the virus back home.
