Germany, Days 12 & 13

9 December, Trier to Bernkastel-Kues

Time to leave Trier.  Since our Trier hotel host told us she liked Trauben-Trarbach’s Christmas Market better than Bernkastel-Kues, we drove on to there. However, we couldn’t find parking. It’s only open on the weekend so we can’t just go tomorrow.  So we drove back to Bernkastel.

Very tall bridge!

10 December in  Bernkastel-Kues

This was perhaps the best weather day yet.  Though it was only about 45 degrees, it was sunny.  I walked over the bridge from Kues to Bernkastel.  I sketched one of the most photographed buildings there:  the Spizhaeuschen from 1416.  I sat at a table outside a closed cafe.  This was my view most of the time:

With patience, though, I got it done.

I walked around the Market some more.  And then back across the bridge.  I stopped half way to sketch the view back to town with the castle ruin above.  There was a convenient bench right there.
