Home Up Rome Tuscany/Florence Birthday Party Venice Austria/Germany


Austria and Germany

On our way from Venice to Germany, we passed through Salzburg, Austria and stayed overnight. After arriving in Salzburg we toured the castle, which offered magnificent views. After a morning of some shopping, we left Salzburg on our way to Germany.

While we spent a few days without the boys in Venice and Salzburg, they visited their aunt Anke and cousin Leoni. Omi and Opi also entertained them while the boys were in Germany.

The first sightseeing trip was to the famous Rhinefalls in Schaffhausen.



While Marc had to work at IBM, Jana and the Nics toured Heidelberg.



Finally, Jana took the Nics to her old stomping grounds in Wiesbaden and also stopped by Ruedesheim on the way back.
