Homburg/Saar, Germany - 2nd April 2012

By: nuriayasmin

Dear Mum

Nuriayasmin decided that she needed a break after her night shifts, so we went to Homburg, a city situated in the German state of Saarland. We stayed at the youth hostel which is very modern and looks quite Mediterranean inside.

Nuriayasmin had chosen Homburg because she wanted to see the ruins of the fortress Hohenburg. The fortress was built around 1200 and was destroyed by the French in the early 18th century. While climbing up to it, I had a nice view on the city.

There's a hotel next to the fortress and I was surprised to see this bear sitting there. First I thought he was a wild TV but he was far too big and actually introduced himself as one of the hotel's employees. We had a nice chat.

Here are the pictures we took while walking around the ruins of the fortress. Hope you like them.

And here's something which is even older than the fortress - much older indeed: it's the fossil of a dinosaur.

After all that historical stuff it was time to play a little, so we went to the park near the youth hostel, had fun on the playground and enjoyed the sight of the lake and the creek.

It was a fabulous day.

Love,
Nils
