    ... short, the damn route got us lost and we ended up doing another massive detour. At rixheim, we eventually turned around to try to find any kind of river to camp on. Rivers are nice. We didnt find the rhine, but ended up staying on the banks of a kittle canal which was super pretty and a fair distance from any dodgy dog walkers!
    dinner, consisting of more garlic tha pasta, followed by wine and bed was pretty much exactly what the doctor ...

    ... wanted pizza... we decided to compromise. Restaurants are open on Sundays. ... right?
    Not right.
    From laufenburg onwards... for the next 3 hours to be precise, we didnt find a single open restaurant. Not one. Absokutely hopeless. Eventually, we asked locals, and through a detour of rougly 10km we finally found food. Pizzaaaaa!!!

    yummy gravy, and spaetzle. Not to mention the bottle of locally made
    Riesling. We left completely stuffed.

    Sunday morning we visited
    the main part of Freiburg, setting out to see the cathedral. One
    oversight was that in Germany on Sunday mornings, almost everything is
    closed. In fact most shops are closed for the entire day. We wanted to
    see the cathedral, ...

    NOTHING is open! The only reason we put Mulhouse on our itinerary was the car museum. It was Andrew and Alain's dream to visit this museum, one of the largest car collections in the world. YAWN! So Andrew and Alain headed off this morning to live out their fantasies and the rest of us walked into town to find some breakfast. We ended up at the railway station where we had petit dejeuner.....breakfast. Nothing else was open. Certainly no Sunday morning cafe culture ...

    ... Those who recall OHMSS, with George Lazenby as James Bond will recognise the Schiltorn as "Piz Gloria" as this is where the Alpine scenes where filmed. Spectacular! From the village, you have a clear view of the Eiger, the Munch, and the Jungfrau just peeps over them. Fantastic mountain scenery, and we were blessed with a wonderful clear day to enjoy it. The cable car ride down was fun, partly because ...
