Travel & Adventure Series at Trailside Senior Center

Touring Germany with Rick Steves

Monday, April 22, 11:45am-1:00pm, Trailside Center, 4700 Dublin Ave. in Midland

Join Rick as he experiences the local culture, cuisine and fun of distinct regions of Germany. Visit Hamburg—Germany’s mighty port city that has risen from the ashes of World War II with a gleaming new skyline and a brisk creative energy. From there, we visit the great historic sights of Martin Luther and the Reformation before finishing in the capital of Franconia—wine-loving Würzburg. Saxony, part of the former East Germany, remains a secret to most travelers. We’ll visit the two great cities of the region—the opulent capital city of Dresden, and Leipzig, with its Bach heritage. Next up, skyscraper-studded Frankfurt which has a delightful-to-explore old center. We’ll also visit Nürnberg, a capital for both the First Reich (the Holy Roman Empire) and the Third. From its towering castle and playful fountains to its Nazi Documentation Center and maze of underground bomb shelters, Nürnberg is a fascinating study in contrasts. Call 633-3700 to register
