    The Thuringian Forest is beautiful. Thank you for your tips, and commenting my Caputh page.

    This looks like quite a typical town in Thüringen. I?ve never been to Arnstadt, but I must have passed through on my way from Suhl to Erfurt.

      Another VT member suggested a vist to Arnstadt. I wandered around the various points of interest and became hopelessly lost for some time before I eventually found my starting point.

    Loved reading about the "new" tower built in 1418, that was long before we were even discovered. No wonder I feel silly writing about "old" buildings in Australia, they only date to the 1800's.

    Thank you for the tips about Arnstadt. I'll be there in a few weeks, mainly to see Mon Plaisir but also to see the rest of this old town.

    Excellent pictures and interesting tips. To see the church where Bach himself played - wow! You must have been tired of all that sightseeing - you never had any problems with finding your car during our trips in England.
