Driving Germany's 'Romantic Road' - Condé Nast TravelerThursday, March 15, 2018
Best to keep passing through until your first stop, about an hour and a half north, in Augsburg, Bavaria's oldest city (and originally a Roman town). Grab a bite outside at a cafe on the Maximilianstrasse, to take it all in, before heading to the Fuggerei, a walled Roman Catholic housing complex for the poor built in the early 1500s by Jakob Fugger. It still serves as subsidized housing to this day, and you can take a tour of one of the homes, peeking into the spartan but welcoming living room, bedroom, and kitchen. There's also a complicated history of the Fuggerei's rebirth following a WWII bombing raid, made all the more real by the mini-museum's setting in a bunker.Take a breath and get back on the road. You can swing by Harburg Castle, or choose Dinkelsbühl as your next overnight, but we decided to push on a little farther to Rothenburg. So glad we did—we could have a stayed a full weekend here. After checking in to Burg-Hotel—another impossibly pretty place in a monastery garden, with views upstairs of the Tauber Valley—we happened upon the free sundown walking tour of the town, getting started in the market square. It took us to the outer wall, and along backroads where restaurants were just starting to turn their lights on. The Alt-Rothenburger Handwerkerhaus is a fun detour to see a 700-year-old house and the remains of artisans' workshops—coopers, weavers, cobblers and potters. It all looks like a film set or a Disney theme park—but then again, film sets and theme parks are made to look like this.Day 3: After lingering in Rothenburg for a late breakfast, drive out for the last, hour-and-change stretch to Würzburg outside Frankfurt, where the wine impresses as much as the city's focal point—the Residenz, an 18th-century Baroque palace. A meal of asparagus, filet mignon, and lots (and lots!) of local riesling at Bürgerspital restaurant caps off a drive that actually lives up to its billing.

Faithful Take to Boats in Annual Corpus Christi Lake Procession in Bavaria - Latin American Herald TribuneSaturday, June 24, 2017
Wörth.There, the community proceeded to the altar in the Chapel of Saint Simpert, one of the patron saints of the nearby city of Augsburg and among the most venerated figures in Bavarian Catholicism.In Bavaria, the Corpus Christi processions are called “Fronleichnamsprozessionen” (“Fronleichnam” means “dead body of Christ” in Middle High German) and constitute the centerpiece of the day’s celebrations.The procession path is usually lined by birch trees, while the streets are strewn with fresh grass and covered by a carpet of flowers.In one of the epa photographs, an arrow made of blossoms is shown indicating the way to the start of the lake procession.In another, girls dressed in full-length white gowns – some sporting red flowers tucked into their necklines, some crowned with daisy chains – can be seen parading, their hands folded in supplicant prayer.Male processioners wore white shirts and green feathered Bavarian hats, with the traditional “Lederhosen” (leather shorts) held up by suspenders colorfully decorated with floral motifs.Parasols were another recurring feature, as the strenuous rowing was compounded by a blazing sun that is not always guaranteed anywhere in Germany, no matter the date.The Corpus feast falls on the fist Thursday after Trinity Sunday (60 days after Easter); next year, it is set to be held on May 31.http://www.laht.com/article.asp?ArticleId%3D2438297%26CategoryId%3D12395
Keukenhof Gardens: Discover a wealth of flowers - United States Army Friday, April 13, 2018
Dutch growers and a wealth of flowers, sorted by color. The Keukenhof, translated to Kitchen Garden, owes its name to Countess Jacoba van Beieren (Jaqueline of Bavaria), who had a castle at this location in the 15th century. She stayed there very often, because the area provided good hunting grounds. Herbs and vegetables were grown in the yard for her kitchen and these have given way to more colorful plants and flowers. Over six million flower bulbs provide beautiful scenic spots throughout the park. Large flower palaces are filled with oceans of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and smaller varieties of their species as well as orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and many more flowers. As the season progresses, the emphasis shifts to different groups of flowers. It is a display of colors and an overwhelming perfume.Endless varieties of tulips can be seen most of the time, but the best time to view them is mid-April. Other flowers bloom again at a different time. However, the park is always a colorful sight. The flower shops in the park can actually mail flower bulbs to the U.S. for customers.The park is open only in the spring time. This year, you can visit from March 22 to May 23. The Keukenhof is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Ticket office closes at 6 p.m. Entry is €16 for adults and €8 for children age 4 to 11. Keukenhof is easy to reach via the A4 (exit Nieuw-Vennep) and the A44 (exit 3 Lisse). Follow the Keukenhof s...
What's in a Home? - CityLabFriday, April 13, 2018
He was astonished by Peru’s diversity, both in terms of geography and inhabitants, as he traveled around the country.Thomas Dworzak travelled around the world—Bavaria, Georgia, Iran—to capture the places he had called home: places that he says still burn within him. Of Tblisi, Georgia, in particular, Dworzak wrote in the forward to his photo set, “I force myself away for longer periods but am sure to always come back. And still, I will always remain a foreigner…I think I will never gain the same level of understanding, the language, the dialect, the humor, than whenever I return to visit my father in that place I left so desperately 30 years ago.” Dworzak photographed his father in the Bavarian village from which he was deported as a child; his wife in Tehran; his friends in Tblisi. While Dworzak also included images of location and scenery, it is clear that, for him, home is haunted by the people who inhabit it.It is impossible for “home” to be interpreted exactly the same way by different people, influenced as we are by entirely different things: the way light strikes the wall of our favorite diner, the curve of our grandmother’s cheek, the way it feels to walk the same street for years. But the book proves that there are many ways to think about a home, and even more ways to visualize it.Home is available for purchase at the Magnum shop.
