Dinkelsbühl to Neuremberg
We had a leisurely morning and left about 1100 at check out time. We drove to Stein, the location of the Faber Castell factory. They make pencils, color and watercolor pencils, pens (PITT), etc. There was no tour available for either the Castle or the factory.
There was a cool pencil sculpture at the beginning of the town but it was in a traffic circle and I couldn’t get a photo. This is a pencil in a sharpener on the grounds of the Factory, castle and shop.
So I just shopped!
It says, “Ideal for Urban Sketching”. I bought one.
All we could do was walk around the outside of the castle.
From there it was only about a half hour to our hotel in Nuremberg. They had a garage down the street. It was a triple decker! One up, one on ground floor, one below! Fortunately, it wasn’t very full and our car remained on the ground floor.
