Today was our first day of "real" sightseeing. We drove to Eisenach, about 30 minutes from where we are staying. First stop, Wartburg Castle. After a steep hike up to the castle from the parking lot, we joined a tour in German. They gave us a pamphlet in English so we could try to follow along, which was a nice thing because I think my Deutsch is getting worse.

Lots more Christmasy touches, little fires to sit around and benches to eat on. There were more stalls too, with lots of great choices!! After eating - a lot - we went to the Ernst August brewery to watch the football. Werder lost :(
So it was a long day, and was good to get back to our hotel. The next day we ...
