Welcome to Germany.
Here is part VII of our European Holiday Flash Pages.
This is the German city of Bonn.
Bonn was the home of a one certain Ludwig van Beethoven.
This 3D likeness is one of the most striking monuments we've ever seen.
One of the remaining original churches just of the city markets.
The photo does not do the architecture justice.
We trek through narrow city streets........
......to find the large open air markets.
Lunch, Europe style. No seating and hard bread rolls, Fitzy trying real hard not to break his jaw.
The sign says Ausfahrt. No that does not mean there is a special place for an Aussie to stink.
Lord help us! A parking pay station that only knows German.
The German loo's put the award winning English thunderboxes to shame.
After an hour and a half of traipsing all over Bonn (it's not well sign posted) we found Beethoven's home. He was born in this house on December 16th 1770
Although interesting, it was expensive, plus all of the exhibits were titled in German and the English guide book was very confusing.
Beethoven's courtyard. You could not take any more photos but you could buy some for exorbitant prices in the "official" gift shop.
