Easter, Warmbronn, April 2022

A short Easter trip but with a lot of entertainment.

On the rather cool ride I was able to enjoy the many signs of spring.

From Warmbronn there was then a lot to experience before I made my way back to Berlin.

1The journey to Warmbronn

It is cold and gray in the morning. Fortunately, it is not raining. Only south of the crest of the Thuringian Forest the sun comes out and spring shows itself in full splendor.

2Easter Saturday

We visit the Hegel House in Stuttgart. Besides an interactive multi-media show, there is also an Escape Room where you have to solve some riddles until you find a Hegel manuscript. We were so busy that there are no photos of it. Later we go on an electric boat on the Neckar River. The sun is merciful and so we have splendid views of the vineyards and the nature.

3Easter Sunday

Two excursion destinations are on the program. First, we hike a few meters up the Hohenstaufen mountain near Göppingen. From there we have a great view over the Swabian Alb. Afterwards we will visit Lingelbach's barn. There is a large collection of optical phenomena there. We have a private tour with Professor Lingelbach and can hardly tear ourselves away. A great experience. We wrap up the day with a good Swabian meal at Wirtshaus Garbe.

The Easter Bunny was there.
