Stuttgart, Nürburgring, Black Forest, August 2010
I have a week off. I use it to visit some friends in Stuttgart, to go to a Nürburgring Nordschleife track training and for meeting some i-bmw members in the Black Forest
I go about 450 miles cross country to visit some friends
We decide to go to Ulm and to visit the tallest church in the world. It is the 530 ft high Ulm Minster, constructed between 1377 and 1890. An extraordinary building - almost as tall as the Washington Monument (550 ft) but much much older.
The Blautopf is a deep cave and it is quite dangerous (and prohibited) to dive there. There is a nearby abbey.
We went to Ludwigsburg Palace the next day and visited the phantastic baroque garden including the so called fairy tale garden
I go about 250 miles cross country to the Nürburgring
I go about 315 miles cross country to the Black Forest in order to meet Paul and Trond from i-bmw.
We have a nice 210 miles loop into the black forrest and do some sightseeing along the way.
Trond is from Norway so we had to make our way North. The weather was not cooperating. We had a lot of rain over the day but during our visit in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen there was even some sun.
While I was getting home, Trond stranded in Goslar with a failed final drive. With the help of BMW Mobility Service he made it to the ferry.
