Europe Trip – Austria & Germany – Heading home

AUSTRIA PICASA PHOTO ALBUM (49 pictures)

Entering Austria, the weather was cold and rainy and the campsites were very full because of the long Ascension holiday weekend. We took one day to visit the super busy capital Vienna. Filled with historical buildings, museums and opera houses, we could just stroll along the many parks, streets and squares.  On our way out, we passed the famous castle Schönbrunn.

We then made a half-day stop in the little town of Melk, where the most famous monastery of Austria is dominating the hill. The Stift of Melk is an amazing baroque abbey built in the beginning of the 18th century, where the marble hall, the library and the church are the main showpieces.

In Germany, we spent a day in the nice medieval town Regensburg, containing one of the oldest stone bridges spanning the Danube, and a twin-towered cathedral which is one of the nicest in Southern Germany.

Our last stop before Belgium was the house of our dear friends Meike and Skip in Duisburg. We spent two days relaxing, catching up and playing games before the last 4 hour stretch to Leuven.
