Waren, Pomerania, Germany
Posted on July 9, 2015
Although we were staying only four miles from downtown Waren, it seemed that we were way out in the countryside because the city ends abruptly after about one mile, and from thereon we were traveling through forest and farmland. We liked Waren a lot. It was small enough to walk from end to end, and it had a really friendly feel to it, although it catered to tourists in large measure. Many people were there to enjoy the surrounding lakes and the Müritz Nationalpark.
The town was really spick and span. Everyone seems to do his part.
We were ready for lunch. Eva found just the place, the Ratskeller (city hall) cafe. Outside on the main plaza they served us lunch in Sandkorbs, the kind one sits in at the beach to protect against rain and wind. Well, we had rain and chill while we ate and felt perfectly well protected.
Inside the Rathaus near the toilet area was an old radio from DDR days. Looking closely, I could see that most of the stations received were from behind the Iron Curtain.
Now I’m going to stroll the streets and take a few photos without any commentary or captions. We’ll let them stand on their own as best they can.
