DI IN GERMANY - DECEMBER 2005
Saturday was dedicated to a visit to Vallendar and a stroll along the Rhine River. This post shows our perambulations in Vallendar, a nice village in Rhineland!
"NR.8 - This is the bus that links Vallendar to Koblenz, seen here crossing the Pfaffendorfer Bridge. The photo was taken from the nearby Mercure Hotel"
"HOME - Di was living at the apartment of a German friend, student at WHU, who was on an Exchange Programme in Uruguay"
"KOROVA was students' bar, just next door"
"WHU - The University's door was 50m from the appartment, and every student had a key to enter the premises when the school was closed!"
"THE CLASSROOM(s) at WHU were pretty impressive"
"WHU is most probably the best Management school in Germany. The premises are absolutely striking"
"PLAZA - The apartments at the WHU plaza look quite nice!
"BURGSTRASSE, where Di was living, is the main pedestrian street in Vallendar"
"DIE TRAUBE is the best restaurant in Vallendar"
"CHURCHES - Vallendar has several churches, and some are quite interesting!"
"APARTMENT BUILDINGS - Many are needed to lodge the 533 students at the WHU..."
"REST HOUSE - In 1976 we made a big West European tour (see post here). In Germany, near Koblenz, we stayed in Vallendar. The Hotel was the big building we can see on this picture. Today it works as a rest house for elderly people... Premonition!"
