Germany's Romantic Road less-travelled - Good FoodSunday, March 3, 2019
September to April), roast carp or beer-braised pork tenderloin.Dinkelsbühl, though wonderful, gets a fraction of visitors of its more famous cousin Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber (rothenburg.de) up the road. The fourteenth-century town is another delightful tangle of cobbled squares, geranium-draped houses and old walls. Its local speciality is the snowball (Schneeball), a variation on the doughnut. Look for those with dimpled surfaces created by their liquor content, since these are made in the more authentic traditional manner.Gasthof Goldener Greifen (gasthof-greifen-rothenburg.de) inhabits the house of a medieval m...https://www.goodfood.com.au/travel/germanys-romantic-road-lesstravelled-20190220-h1bj5h

Photo by Laura Dannen RedmanDay 2: There's a lot to do between Füssen and Rothenburg ob der Tauber (on the Tauber river), which is about 150 miles away as the highway flies. Take the more meandering route, about a three-hour ride (without stops) on B17 and A7, for a full Romantic Road experience. After passing a handful of villages, heading slowly around traffic circles, you'll wonder if the locals care you're here it all seems so peaceful and quiet. 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.https://www.cntraveler.com/story/driving-germanys-romantic-road

Driving Germany's 'Romantic Road' - Condé Nast TravelerSunday, March 3, 2019
It seems impossible that a route billed as the Romantic Road, winding through medieval villages and tiny Bavarian towns with half-timbered homes and cherry-red flowers in window boxes, could remain romantic for half a century yet it has. Germany came up with the idea of a scenic route from the River Main to the Alps in the 1950s, when it needed a bit of post-war positivity; it's said the earliest visitors were friends and families of American soldiers stationed in the large bases in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. Americans still flock here, as do Asians, Europeans, and even Germans themselves, and though main attractions can get crowded, there are more than enough quiet corners of castles and cobblestoned alleys in 12th-century towns for everybody.The Trip: Three days, 285 milesStarting in Munich, head southwest toward Füssen at the beginning (or end) of the Romantic Road, and from there, go north to the wine city of Würzburg.What to DriveFor the love of all that is good and muscle-bound, please rent a fast German car.

Beyond Rosa Luxemburg: five more women of the German revolution you need to know about - The Conversation - UKSunday, March 3, 2019
Family Archive of Kramer/Fitzgerald
The revolution in Munich culminated in the declaration of the Bavarian Soviet Republic and Kramer became the official secretary in the city commanders office. When Munich was brought back under government control, after days of bloody violence, she was arrested for her revolutionary activities. She worked in Moscow and Berlin for various communist groups before fleeing to the UK in 1937 where she worked for the Labour Party.
The writers Lola Landau and Cläre Jung were in Berlin during the revolution. Landau had written and distributed anti-war material and saw the revolution as a chance to create a new, peaceful world order, founded on democratic principles and social justice. Jung had helped deserters from the German army with money and accommodation. When the revolution descended into counter-revolutionary violence she described procuring guns and carrying them through the streets at great personal risk.
Landau emigrated to Palestine in 1936 and worked for welfare organisations. Jung remained in Nazi Germany but used her contacts and skills from her time as a revolutionary to participate in resistance activities against the Nazis.
Written out of history
These are just five of the 256 women our research has identified – women who played significant roles in the revolution and in the shaping of Germanys new, albeit short-lived, democracy. Their eye-witness accounts reveal that they were fully involved in the revolutionary events and certainly didnt see themselves as onlookers to a male spectacle. The revolution was not just a fleeting moment in their lives but a stepping stone between their radical roots and later activist careers. They often took huge risks and lived precarious lives as a resu...http://theconversation.com/beyond-rosa-luxemburg-five-more-women-of-the-german-revolution-you-need-to-know-about-109209
