Walberla

hillparty
What may look like a very remotely located beer festival on a gray day actually is a very remotely located beer festival on a gray day on Walberla mountain about halfway between Bamberg and Nuremberg in Franconia, Bavaria, May 03. The ‘Walberlafest’ can be traced┬áback to 9th century May celebrations on this site with its stunning view (and its strange name)┬áthat was already populated in the Bronze Age.

Celtic Museum

celticmuseum
The Glauburg museum, some 35 kms (21 mls) northeast of Frankfurt, the center of an archaeological park on the site of a Celtic settlement dating back to the 5th century BC (Photo taken Aug.4). The museum was opened in 2009, a few years after the spectacular excavation of a sandstone statue of the so-called ‘Celtic Prince’ that is on display inside.
Stupidly, I forgot that the museum is closed on Mondays…
