Today I want to show you where I spent my Easter weekend…
… my husband and I went to two differnt cities in the federal state of Thuringia (in East Germany). Its close to where we live but still we never went there so we thought its time 🙂
First we went to the city of Jena where we spent Saturday; drinking coffee, going shopping and eating out in a really good Thai restaurant. That day I did not take many pictures, since I was too busy enjoying our solo time. On Sunday we went to the small town of Naumburg (after having a long a really good breakfast in our hotel) and from this town I would like to share some pictures…
We had actually no idea what to expect from Naumburg and we were so surprised when we found out that the town is very well known for its Cathedral (known in German as the Naumburger Dom), which was built between the 13th and 15th centuries. Its a little embarrasing that we did not even know that we live so close to this landmark, but hey, at least we know it now 😉
What else I really like about Naumburg are the contrasts between really beautiful and huge buildings and decaying houses and streets… these contrats can actually be found in almost every town in Eastern Germany. And I guess this is also why I like it around here. In Northern Germany, where I lived most of my life villages and cities are really different from here and I am always fascinated again and again, when visiting new places in Eastern Germany.
Naumburg is really small so we just spent some three hours there, but it was really nice exploring the old town and having some tea and cake on the market place 🙂
I hope you had a nice Easter weekend too! What have you been up to?
I wish you all a wonderful start in the new week!
