This morning, Doris and I went to the market in Melsungen, only 8 miles away. It's a sunny day but we have only 8 °C this time and so it was fresh in the open Gator. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Very nice looking markets.

I showed the photos to my wife, as she spent several years in Germany (military).

She said the markets were great with wonderful produce and meats.

As she looked at the photos, she said, "somewhere there someone is selling pretzels too"!

Great photos and enjoyed them a bunch.  I always admired the Dutch architecture.  They really have a way to accent their work on the buildings.

Sorry, but this kind of timber framing is typical german. In our county, and only here in North Hesse, you can see the "Hessenmann".

Looks like you had fun! Everything seems so clean and neat, but in all those pictures I only noticed one child. From the shadows I'm guessing it was fairly early or late in the day. Thanks for the window into your world.

It was early in the morning. We began our tour before the official opening of the market - and today in the newspaper they've said, that more then 20.000 visitors where on the market...

And you're right, Lorna. Most of the visitors are "not any longer teenagers". That's because there's a new awareness of the food we have to eat everyday.

Wolfgang,

Fantastic photos of the market and the timber framed buildings. Are these the original buildings or are they restored ones from after the war? I been to Germany several times and always enjoyed exploring the countryside and tasting the beer and food. I know that some of the towns and villages were rebuilt as they were which is something we didn't do in the UK. Instead we ended up with concrete monstrosities.

All I could think of when looking at those photos is how much fun it would be to taste one of each. I would probably look like Hermann Goring when I got done though. 158 kg.  :smilewink:

These are original buildings and the oldest are 500 to 450 years old. The little towns near Kassel weren't bombed in WW2 and so you'll find this old cities and villages all around here.
