June 20th, Refreshed from the long journey we set off to see the sites in
Aachen is a spa City near the Germany's borders with Belgium and the Netherlands. Aachen Cathedral was founded around 800 A.D. and
a Gothic chancel was added later. Its Domschatzkammer (treasury) has medieval artifacts including the shrine of Charlemagne, who was
buried here in 814 A.D. Nearby is the Baroque town hall, Aachener Rathaus, with 19th Century frescoes.
Sulfurous water fills the fountains of Elisenbrunnen.

Heidelberg is known for the University founded in the 14th Century.
Gothic Heiliggeistkirche Church Towers over the Cafe lined Marketplace.
The Town Square is called Altstadt. (Old Town).
Church of the Holy Spirit (Heilig Geist Kirche) is close by.
We spent so much time exploring the Castle, we did not get to see Old Town so we spent the night in Heidelberg.
This was the most beautiful Hotel I ever stayed. "DerEuropaeische Hof"
Private Hotel since 1865

My daughter Kimberly, Gunter, his son Ken and Ken's girlfriend Jacqui took the train to Amsterdam.
They had a wonderful time seeing the sites. I had a great time with my Brother and Karen too.
June 25th, Sadly it was time to say goodbye to Germany.
