We also drove through a town called Kissing, but Jena had a sore neck and it seemed a bit too gimmicky to stop as Joel prefers a longer kiss and that just would not do.
Nordlingen is a medieval town surrounded by a perfectly circular defensive wall. The different junctions in the town are all based upon the astrological arrangement of the planets from the sun. The sun being an enormous gothic church in the centre which is host to the famous 'Daniel' a 90 meter tall bell-tower.
We were able to climb to the top of ‘Daniel’ and walk right the way around the tower to see the whole ring of the town
We walked the mega staircase only to find a ticket man at the top, right before the viewing platform. That was kinda annoying, because at that point you’re trapped into paying because you’ve already walked the whole tower.
It was funny though, because we got to talking to the ticket man because we noticed an Australian flag on his cash register. He then began to tell us that Nordlingen is in fact a sister town to a town in Australia. A town in Australia called, non other than WAGGA! Of all the bloody places! Wagga.
We laughed and laughed and laughed.
Nordlingen is cool though, even if she has a slightly retarded sister.
