Weinheim Travel Guide: 43 reviews and 112 photos

Now I'm not a VT newbie any more! Yesterday I went to my first VT meeting!

The meeting took place in the pretty little town of Weinheim and involved
- my first ride on an InterCity train
- VT members Trekki, christine.j, Nobby and Luciano (VT member Norbaert), little Koala, Mommy and me
- seeing the old town, the palace and beautiful gardens
- icecream
- some salad and antipasti, wine and coffee
- lotos of photos being taken
- a brilliant and hot summer's day
- myself smelling of grass, dust and fresh summer air afterwards

If you want to know more about the town and its treasures, check out christine.j's Weinheim page.

Castles Wachenburg and Windeck

Since Mommy needed photos of the two castles above Weinheim as well as the palace in town, we went a couple of hours earlier and hiked up he hills. Mommy understood that the hills were too steep and the walks were too long for my little legs and carried me up and down in her pouch, erm backpack. She was quite exhausted afterwards.

In my photo travelogue you'll see that I climbed the highest tower!

The Parks of Weinheim

Here we are resting among flowers and yummy grass in a lovely garden.

Some more pictures of the meeting are to be found in my travelogue page.

    Hahaha, you all lok as if you did enjoy your trip yesterday :-) I myself should consider to feed all the icecream to Nobby and Luciano instead of eating it myself. I am fat...

    Hi Russell, I'm glad you enjoyed your first VT meeting. Didn't you get dizzy looking down from the Windeck? That's quite some height for a wombat.
