(See previous posts for what this tour is about.) (As always, click on photos to enlarge or play a movie.)
Here is a bit of photo catch-up for our cross-country travel day on Wed. 8 May. We left Aachen, actually east of Cologne, and traveled a windy route across Germany to end the day at Melsungen near Kassel.
Our first major stop was the Remagen Bridgehead near Cologne. This famous railroad bridge was captured intact by the Allies on 7-8 March 1945, though it collapsed not long after.
We also stopped in the old German town of Frankenberg to view pristine half-timbered buildings.
At our destination Melsungen we checked into our hotel, viewed half-timbered buildings, and had a superb private dinner at a local gasthaus.
I still owe a post for a busy, busy day and evening with Matthias in Halle. To be continued…
