The walk from there to the hotel was quite appealing too as you can see from the picture.
The afternoon was spent on the train. I have quite a soft-spot for Deutsche Bahn. I wouldn't be surprised if I've done as many miles on German trains as on British ones despite only having started 12 years ago. Today I had lunch in the restaurant car (a cooked meal on a plate with a cold beer - served at a table traveling at 90 miles per hour), then I returned to my reserved seat in a Harry Potter style compartment. All very civilised.
Cue random picture of German countryside speeding by!
