We then drove to the Czech boder where we had seen shop "Free Shops" from the train earlier in our trip. I thought these might be good places for souvenir shopping but it was just shops for Germans to purchase alcohol, cigarettes, perfume and a few other goods at a lower tax rate. Crossing the border is like going between US states
We then stopped at a HUGE fortress called Koenigstein; it was getting late so we skipped going in and decided to take a "short" walk around the perimeter of the castle
We ended the day with a nice meal at a local Gasthof or Inn; I had some venison medallions with a nice sauce and wild berries and mushrooms and Jerry had a nice schnitzel...
Tomorrow we leave for Eisenach which is in another state; Thuringen or Thuringia in English. More sights to see there...
