The City on the edge of the Black Forest. A mix of [rebuild] old and modern. Trams, wide streets, diverse range of flats (all with bike storage), friendly parks. And graveyards which feel happy places with flowers and lots of trees.

The lady (I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt) in the tourist info place didn’t like my look before you buy approach. Something stern in German gave me that impression. The tourmap took us passed a open square. The water art was layed out in the shape of the old synagogue, burnt down in 1938. Thoughtful.

The Minster is impressive inside. How are these things designed and built over 300 years from 1200? It was open today: everything else apart from cafes are shut.

Bike friendly, by design. Quiet today, I suspect busier tomorrow when we leave.
