- Events of the Day
was the day. Included in our hotel rental was use of bikes and
the Elbe Weg (path) was just meters away. The pathway follows the
river and is mostly flat and paved - easy to enjoy.
town to encounter was Rathan - home of the gateway for the outdoor
festival grounds and Amsee (lake). The town was full of activity
with manicuring lawns, bushes, and flowers. Each town seemed to
have a unique fountain - either in size or sculpture type.
side excursion was the Koeningstein Fortress. In the zentrum, we
could lock up the bikes and board a 1930s two level bus with bench
seating heading up the steep drive to the fortress. During the
next two hours, we viewed the high embankments and restored interior
buildings. Views of the Elbe river were impressive.
the day with the return bike trip and revisit of the Stand Hotel for
dinner. After dinner was the obligatory (fit in with the locals)
ice cream stop. One cone was filled with a light green
Waldenberry (unknown flavor and source).
