Departing Wednesday, due to arrive on Friday, to get from Bamberg, Germany to Venice, Italy.

Travelling by train.

We need to change trains at four places along the route, so while we are there, we can have a look around.

On your amble round Nuremberg the Albrecht Durer House is worth a visit

There are eight POPtravel videos of Munich available on YouTube.

Here is a link to one of them.

Here is a link to some music and singing.

There are four POPtravel videos of Salzburg.

I have not watched this one all the way through, but it has bells right from the start so I chose this one to feature on this virtual journey.

I was once in the Hofbrauhaus, having walked through the wonderful Christmas Market in Munich. The snow was falling and the oompah band was playing - heaven!

If you have time on your walk I recommend a kaffe und kuchen in the café in Galleria Kaufhof which has a good view of the Marienplatz, and if you get there at the right time you can see the glockenspiel in action on the Rathaus.

Thank you.

How lovely that is! Prague has a similar clock, the Astronomical Clock, less musical, but very beautiful to watch.

And if your walk is in December, check this out in Kaufhof's window, across the square from the Rathaus. The cuteness is overwhelming... wink

Thanks to volver for the link to Kaufhof's window, that was just wonderful; I'd like my GC to go and see that.

Now that this journey has reached Venice, please transfer to the cruise thread.

But first, perhaps have a look at this video.
