By: Hummel

Hello out there,

my name is Diddl-Maus and I want to travel around the world.


Here you can see me with my Dad.


And these are some of my friends.



I love flowers – especially red ones. Maybe you have some at home?



Well let's see, where I start my travels.

Yours Diddl-Maus

Bruchsal, Germany - 27th February 2010

Hi Mum, I made it in time to come to this lovely place, when my host had a disc prolaps in her neck. She is really down and sad and dizzy, I can tell you. Today she took a photo with me on the balcony.

Our activities are rare right now, but today I had luck that we went on a short walk around this beautiful sea. We really enjoyed it.

Bruchsal, Germany - 17th March 2010

By: fam-united

My host's most activities are watching tv, reading and walking up and down in the house. She doesn't go out alone, still afraid, because she feels so dizzy. So here we watched one of her favourite tv series: McLeods Daughters'. She prefers the ones with Claire:)

Bruchsal, Germany - 17th March 2010

By: fam-united

Today my host's husband took me on a little sightseeing tour in Bruchsal. Bruchsal was first named in 976, but surely it is much older.

You see the church tower of the church St. Damian and Hugo behind me. The church is mostly called Hofkirche, because it belongs to the palace.


You see, that we had this grey weather again. It didn't make sense to wait longer for better photogenic weather. So we decided, that today had to be the day to get it done. This is the back side of the palace, by the way. You see a part of the big ponds, still no water in it, because it still is rather cold.


Here we're still standing at the same place but with view to the palace garden.


Bruchsal Palace was built by Damian Hugo von Schönborn, the Bishop of Speyer, beginning in 1720, and is one of a series of baroque residence palaces established in Southwestern Germany following the end of the Palatinate War of Succession and the preceding armed (and therefore destructive) conflicts. Von Schönborn did not rebuild the old Speyer residence destroyed in 1689, but instead decided on a representative new building modeled on Versailles. With the location in Bruchsal, the holder of religious and secular power also avoided continual conflicts with the Protestant "Reichsstadt" (free imperial city) of Speyer.
During the second world war the palace was destroyed completely and so was the church. Both were rebuilt but the inside of the church isn't baroque anymore, what is really sad. In the palace you can visit the Deutsches Musikautomaten-Museum and the city museum.



Here we stand at the front side of the palace and behind me you see the church building and a little part of the church tower. On the right side is the palace entrance.


Here we're still standing at the same place. The building on the right side is a part of the church and the left building is the county court of Bruchsal.


That's the building on the opposite side of the church. Here is the Kammermusiksaal.

Today we went for a little walk in a wood next to a small animal park. My host's son went with her and so she took us with them. We enjoyed the lovely weather again.

Remscheid, Germany - 5th April 2010

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I arrived at olgamaus's home crabwise. I came here in a box with some more TVs. We were supposed to be sent to another host, but olgamaus could not resist my saucer eyes. She loves rodents :D


Today we are having a lazy day in front of the television.

Remscheid, Germany - 6th April 2010

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
Katja took me and Ceryni on a short walk to the city centre. First she showed us the city hall. Its tower is 48 m high!


Our next stop was the shopping mall. There is a large fountain in front of it. Unfortunately it is still out of action until there will be definitely no more frost.



This large intersection is close to my current home.


Those pretty houses are just around the corner of my current home.



This is a rather steep road, in the background you can see the outskirts of the neighbour city Wuppertal.


Now we are going to visit the famous Swedish home center. We have to buy lamps and bulbs.

Remscheid, Germany - 9th April 2010

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
we took a walk today in one of the valleys which are connecting the city centre with the districts Lennep and Luettringhausen. Both are rather old districts which had their own municipality before they were suburbanized to Remscheid.

You can find forests and pasture land here.



Roderich became my friend and I am no longer afraid of him as a cat. At Kata's home even more dangerous pets are living.


The forest soil is covered with anemones now, we saw white and yellow anemones.


There are only a few houses in the valley.



We had to walk uphill in the meantime. A good overview was the reward for this effort.



We walked into the centre of Luettringhausen and had a look at the historic city hall of the district.

Remscheid-Hasten, Germany - 10th April 2010

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
we took a walk to day in Remscheid-Hasten. We went through the municipal park to get there. I saw pretty houses there.


Katja showed me an indoor swimming pool which is only for schools and swimming clubs.



Hasten ist one of the oldest dictricts of the municipal area with lots of traditional old houses.



Here in Hasten you can find industrial buildings close to dwellings. Here you can see "Keiper", a famous company which produces car seats and custom car seats, also for Formula-1 cars.



We were reaching the oldest parts of the district than.





It seems as if you'd only walk uphill here :) - really hard for someone from lowland like me.


Here you can also see old industrial buildings and new ones between dwellings.


A pretty Patrician Villa came into sight. It was built in the 1790 years. A museum is situated here nowadays.



We took a pretty group photograph here.



On our way back home we went through the municipal park once more. This is the observatory, situated here in the park.


You can also find a pond in the park, ducks and turtles are living here.



Here you can see the police headquarter.


In the park in front of the police station I found pretty yellow flowers - daffodils.



Katja told us that this church is nearly invisible in summer when it is hidden behind the trees.


A few minutes later we reached our home.

By: olgamaus

We entered our room. We can see the the River Roeslau, an affluent of the River Eger in North-East Bavaria, 37,59 km long.

Göltzschtalbrücke close to Mylau, Germany - 15th April 2010

By: olgamaus

We also visited the Glötzschtalbrücke (Gloetzsch Valley Bridge), which is the largest brick bridge in the world. The railway bridge is 574m long and was built between 1846 and 1851 using more than 26 million bricks. It has four storeys with 81 arches. It is 78 m high and 574 m long.

There were up to 1.736 workers working each month, 31 of them died while construction works.

When it was finished, it was also the highest railway bridge in the world. It is currently part of the high-speed [1] Dresden-Plauen line.

We read some facts about the bridge on this sign.


Here you can seet his famous bridge.


Unfortunately we forgot the name of this creek running close to the bridge.

Hi Mummy,

we visited Feisnitz dam today. We circled it completely. The dam is about 1,3 km long.


We found a small cave. Here we relaxed for a while and enjoyed the overview to the lake.
