Remscheid, Germany - 29th January 2011

By: olgamaus

Today we continued exploring our new home country. We went taking a walk with a friend of Katja, Squirt, Fimbo_Fimble, Tochi and me. The whole city is surrounded by valleys and forests.

From an outlook pavilion I had a great overview across the valley of the river Wupper. This bridge is Muengsten Bridge, Germany's highest railway bridge. It is made of steel, 107 m high, overspanning the valley of the river Wupper and connecting the cities of Remscheid and Solingen.

I found something really great - a "puddle-oracle"!

I tried to ask a question to the oracle, but it was frozen. Maybe I should come back and try again when there is a real puddle.

We visited a park underneath Muengsten Bridge.

We had coffee and zwieback -a German sweet delicacy - at a kiosk. I know zwieback - it was known already in medieval times. It is a kind of bread which is baked a second time to make it more durable.

Later we had to cross the river again to get back to the car.

There were even remains of ice. Katja told me that they had snow for almost six weeks.
