Wernigerode to Dresden
25.05.2016 - 25.05.2016 18 °C
We woke this morning to another cloudy and cool morning.
We traveled from Wernigerode to Dessau and then set out to find "The Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Worlitz". After being led to roads that cars were not allowed on for about 1/2 hour we gave up.
We then started out to find Wittenburg to visit the town where Martin Luther lived and preached and on October 31, 1517, he nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church. The Protestant Reformation had begun. Our buddy the GPS led us down three different roads that had barriers on them stopping traffic because of construction. By this time we needed to get on to Dresden so we could check in to our hotel so we gave up and drove to Dresden. Along the way to Dresden we saw highway signs that would have led us to Wittenburg but by then it was too late to detour.
We arrived in Dresden. On our way through the city we spotted this imp on the roof of the "Museum fur Sachsische Volkskunst" which translates into museum for folk art. We also saw many historic buildings and river cruise boats along the shore line of the River Elbe.
We found our hotel and got checked in. We loaded up our laundry and found a wonderful laundromat that was clean and the machines were efficient. After folding laundry we found a grocery store and bought supplies for supper/dinner. We returned to our hotel and made supper/dinner and have good internet so we can post this blog.
We had a cloudy day but the high for the day was 18 C or 64 F which is much warmer than we have had for a while and we had no rain so, all in all, it was a good day.
