Prague

With a stop at Nurnberg along the way

30 °C

We left Munich this morning and our first stop along the way was Nurnberg. This little town is famous for gingerbread, and was quite special. It is also famous for its Christmas markets (which were replaced by a produce market in summer). This town was a hidden gem of a town which we really loved, especially its quaint little bridges.
We then got back on the bus to head to Prague, Czech Republic.
After checking into our hotel and having a buffet dinner we took a night time city walking tour and historical tram ride through Prague. The highlight was walking over the Charles Bridge.
In the morning we had a city tour of Prague castle, Wenceslas cathedral, and of course the astronomical clock. We stopped for a quick bite (local goulash in bread bowl) and then took in the Lennon remembrance wall and then the funicular to the top of the hill overlooking Prague. From there we walked up the Petron tower (pragues Eiffel Tower) and the views from there were absolutely breathtaking. As we were walking down the mountain we could see the sky getting darker and darker and ended up absolutely drenched before we got back to the meeting point - but at least we got to see everything we set out to see in the day.
