Around Weimar in a Carriage


After visiting the Buchenwald Memorial, we went to the picturesque town of Weimar. As we stepped out of our bus, it seemed like we were transported back to another time. Cobbled streets,  lovely flowers by the sidewalks, old structures, colourful rows of buildings, quaint shops and cafes, bicycles and carriages and a square filled with stalls and a crowd. This city in central Germany was pulsating vibe for its cultural and intellectual life in the 18th and 19th centuries.


Since we had very limited time, my co-particpants and I decided to explore much of Weimar on a carriage that cost us forty euros. 











While we were in Weimar, we also visited some shops before it closed at 4:00 P.M. And we just couldn't leave the place without having a taste of their rostbratwurst.





We ended our trip at the Weimar Atrium, a mall which remained open beyond 4:00 P.M. It had a grocery section and boutiques. Outside the Atrium was a flea market. We sat down on the steps and waited for our bus that would take us to Dresden.
