A little medieval town called Quedlinburg – part II

Rainy days over here lately, I definitely prefer rain during spring and summer than in winter time. If it were up to me, it would only snow during winter here in Berlin 🙂 But besides the weather forecast…haha the renovation in our apartment is almost over, hopefully all will be nice and done by the end of next week. But it will definitely take time to leave it the way we want, but we are patient! (well, at least Rafael is more than me…hahaha).

I’m here today to share the last pictures from our one day trip do Quedlinburg, what I didn’t tell you in the last post is that the city, in the State of Sachsen-Anhalt, was a capital of the East Franconian German Empire at the time of the Saxonian-Ottonian ruling dynasty (919 to 1024). Following the coronation of Henry I (876 to 936), the first German King from the Saxonian dynasty, the royal residence of Quedlinburg became the capital of the East Franconian German Empire, the “metropolis of the Reich” of the first German state. Because of the close link  between its history and architecture, Quedlinburg is listed as one of Unesco’s world heritage. I love visiting castles, and see how things were in the past, in this case, the representational rooms of the castle offer insight into the living style of the nobility in the 17th and 18th centuries, that reflect their state in the eras of the Baroque and of Classicism.

Hey guys, how are you doing?! Over here everything is pretty chaotic because of our renovation, it started last week on Tuesday, and it’s not going on everyday, but I hope that it will be done soon. I said on the last post that I would like to move the wardrobe from the living room to the bedroom, but I think that for now that will not happen, the wardrobe belongs to the apartment, and I think that it’s not very new, lately it hasn’t been so steady, so I guess that if we try to move it, it will brake. We already wanted to buy a new and bigger one for us, but it will take time, because these things are not cheap! Even though I am a little frustrated because of that, I’m trying to remain positive, and be happy that the apartment will look much better after the renovation! I’m taking pictures of every step to share on the blog 🙂

But besides that, I’m here today to share a few pictures from our little one day trip to the medieval town, Quedlinburg, that we did in December (it’s been a while, I know…haha). Truth be told, it wasn’t our idea to go there, we’ve never heard of it before my mother-in-law told us on her visit that she wanted to go there, and I’m glad that she did!
