2013-10-12 Mannheim

Today there is a selection of 3 activities.

1-      Tour to Heidelberg, visit the castle and small University town. Check out our blogHeidelberg

from April 2013 www.travelmart.ca for information

2-      Hochenheim race circuit.

3-      Explore the town of Speyer, one of Germany’s oldest cities. It is dominated by the Speyer Cathedral where you will visit before a home hosted visit for some coffee ad conversation with locals.

Hochenheim it is , wanted to see the famous race track and museum. The formula ONE for Germany is held here once every 2 years. The track is 4.6 km long and will accommodate over 100,000 spectators. We got to see a few small races on this visit.  Next week is the Formula One race. All the major sponsors are already putting up the hospitality tents. They call them tents but I call them mobile 2 story buildings that are constructed in 12 days . Apparently the RED BULL tent has a swimming pool on the 2nd floor. This year, I do not think it will be used, pretty cold out.

Got a chance to speak with a few guests that have been on the Scenic river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest,  they said it was really good better weather more in the summer.

However they said this one Amsterdam to Basel was prettier, better scenery and felt more relaxing. They felt the food preparation was a little better.

Call it a day
