We live really close to Wurzburg.. it’s a 30min drive or so. I mentioned to my mom how I remembered taking a boat trip in Wurzburg when I was a kid. She couldn’t believe I even remembered it since I was 4 at the time. So we made it a point to enjoy a boat ride this time around. Wurzburg has a castle on top of a bluff. Which we visited later in our trip since Ashton LOVES castles. But this boat took us, (on the Main river) to the summer residence of the royals who lived in the castle you see on the upper right of Ashton and David.
As we docked Ashton immediately noticed the pirate ship playground. OOHH BOY.. Germans do playgrounds right!
Then we walked through the adorable village to get to the summer residence. We walked around the garden mostly, (which is large). They only have the fountain on for ten mins a day so we had to skip a tour of the castle to catch it. I also googled how fountains worked back in the day when electricity was just a crazy idea.. one word.. Gravity!
Then I saw this on the way out… it’s a tree that died, cut down, and a new tree, (same kind as the old one) growing in it’s place.
We were supposed to take the boat back to Wurzburg. But we misread the last pick up time and missed it. Had to find another way back to the city.. Thankfully trains are everywhere, (in this case RIGHT behind the castle) and it worked out great because what kid doesn’t enjoy a train ride?
Shops in Germany close early, 6pm on weeknights and SOME, not all, close at 8pm on Saturday, (Sunday’s they are all closed) so we decided just to stroll around downtown for a bit before heading back home.
Man oh Man I really need to get on the ball editing these pictures. I am only on Day 3 of our trip!
