Altleiningen, Germany - 26th August 2009

By: fam-united

Altleiningen is a castle and a town in Rhineland-Palatinate. It belongs to destrict Bad Duerkheim. It was built on top of a 400 m high hill. You still can see a few remains of the old building from 1100 AD. Nowadays it is a youth hostel and my hosts' daughter already had been there with her class in 2006.

Schwarzach, Germany - 27th August 2009

By: fam-united

Schwarzach is a town in the district of Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It was first named in 1143, since 1823 it is divided in the towns Unterschwarzach and Oberschwarzach - we were in Unterschwarzach. It is about 0km east of Heidelberg.
At first we visited the wildlife park. It is part of nature park Neckar valley- Odenwald and UNESCO- Geopark.

At the entrance we saw the world's largest mortar bell.



I helped to feed the donkeys.


and the sheep.


In the far we saw some deer.



Here you see, how I saw them without zooming.


Do you want to read some German about the deer?



There aren't only animals, which are from Germany originally.


I also saw some zebras.


Feeding a shy roe isn't easy.


We had a nice funny ride on a small train.

Unterschwarzach, Germany - 27th August 2009

By: fam-united

Then we drove to the "Schwarzacher Hof", which belongs to Johannes-Anstalten Mosbach, located at the castle set on a lake. The oldest building is from 1914/15, the biggest part was built in second half of 20th century. There's place on the farmyard for 780 living quarters and exterior living groups for disabled people.

We went throught the park, that belongs to this farmyard.

There is a small barefoot park and we tried it.



I went through a labyrinth. Do you see me? I'm with my host's daughter.



We are at the centre now.


When we were outside of the labyrinth again, we sat down on a large thumb.


Do you remember that blue room in the Japanese Garden of Münzesheim? Now I know, where they found the bottles.


We had fun on the slide.


A last glimpse at the labyrinth from a higher place.

Bietigheim, Germany - 7th September 2009

By: fam-united

Today we and our host's daughter went on a surprise trip.

The Bietigheim Horse Market begins on Friday before the first Monday of September and ends on following Tuesday. Beside the traditional (actual) horse market on Monday, ride- and jumping tournament (Friday until Sunday), the other riding demonstrations as well as the procession (Monday) with following premium of the most beautiful cars, there is also an entertainment park with marquees, a large shopkeeper market.

I hope, you will like the photos.









Later we had fun on the river rafting.


The Bietigheim Enz Valley Bridge is a well-known German railway bridge over the Enz vallay at Bietigheim-Bissingen and one of the landmarks of the city. It was built from 1851-1853 as part of the railway line Bietigheim Bruchsal under the direction of Karl Etzel.



On our way home we took a photo of the landscape.

Bruchsal, Germany - 27th September 2009

By: fam-united


It is such a beautiful day, that we decided to go on a walk to the little field chapel. On the way we passed the seven sorrows of Maria, the holy mother.
They started to built the chapel in 1903 and consecrated it in 1905. In year 1908 the seven stations were finished. The first four stations were destroyed by environmental impact and war and so they were recreated in 1957 and consecrated in 1958.

The Seven Sorrows (or Dolors) are events in the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary which are a popular devotion and are frequently depicted in art.

It is a common devotion for Catholics to say daily a Hail Mary for each.

1. The Prophecy of Simeon over the Infant Jesus. (Gospel of Luke 2:34)


2. The Flight into Egypt of the Holy Family. (Gospel of Matthew 2:13)


3. The Loss of the Child Jesus for Three Days. (Luke 2:43)


4. The Meeting of Jesus and Mary along the Way of the Cross. (Luke 23:26)


Here is the field chapel, called Feldkirchle in Bruchsal.


5. The Crucifixion, where Mary stands at the foot of the cross. (Gospel of John 19:25)

6. The Descent from the Cross, where Mary receives the dead body of Jesus in her arms. (Matthew 27:57)


7. The Burial of Jesus. (John 19:40)

By: scoiattolo

Hi mum,
we went outside today, to see the countryside. We went 10 kilometers by car and then we went to the forest along the tourist signs.
Visibility wasn't the best, but my host told me, when the weather is good- sunny - the view is imazing.
The river in the deep valley.
And also colorful leaves all around.
I like the nature here, I'll write you soon, bye Carlisle.

Pihel, Czech Republic - 20th November 2009

By: scoiattolo

Hi mum,
I went to  visit my host's grandpa, he lives in the house with 2 dogs. At the beginning I was scared about the dog - Sam,
but then we had fun together.

We went to the nearest forrest, just behind the house. I tried how to fly,
how to climb to the tree,
I wanted to see the deer-stand.
I was a little tired, I sat to the forrest bench
but it wasn't so comfy - I had a nap in the grass.
We saw some views:
I was  starving and suddenly I saw a mushroom - I ate it very quickly, YYYUUUUMMYYYY!!!

That's all for today, My legs are so weak, I need some relax now,
Bye Carlisle.
