All went well with the "de-embarkation" and we soon found ourselves on a bus for the day!! (Not our favourite means of transport!). Our bus, loaded up with all our bags, spent the first two hours on a driving tour of Nuremburg with another very knowledgeable local guide who, again, was very good. We saw the remains of the Nuremburg Rally grounds - "Zeppelin Fields" actually as the ill-fated took off from there - and all those newsreels of the ranting Hitler came back to our consciousness.
The trip took aound four and a half hours and there is nothing to report about it at all. We arrived at the Marriott and were able to shower and have a welcome drink before Martina, our new local guide and "Scenic" Tour Director for these last few days, took the troops for a quick orientation walk around the block. Martina was excellent and we are sure that everyone felt that they knew where to go - it is a great location!
Elaine and Mick headed straight for the Municipal House for a wonderful Art Deco dining experience in a beer hall. The decor was divine, the beer was cold and plentiful and the duck and lamb shank went down easily!
