Lunch with the Saints

We stopped in this town for lunch, on our way to Munich. We enjoyed a beautiful lunch of beer, bratwurst, and liver dumpling soup. Origins date back to 1000 B.C.E, and over the years the city has been known not only for its wine, but also some prominent inventors - such as Wilhelm C. Röntgen, who discovered the X-rays named after him. (1895)
though merely half a day was spent here, it was another gorgeous adventure, surrounded by religious monuments, statues of the saints, churches, and a breeze from the main river. our trek began across the historical marienbruecke, which is lined with the figures of saints. at the other end of the bridge is where we found a wonderful restaurant, which i believe was called cafe brueckenbeck. apparently, this location was once an old mill, and the old wheel that was hydropowered can still be found here.
we sat on the terrace overlooking the river and the bridge, as well as affording us a great view of the fortress beyond. below us was the main river. we feasted on little white sausages with sauteed onions, mashed potatoes and gravy, and washed it down with some franconian white beer. a delicious lunch! our trek led us into the cobblestone streets of the city, lined with churches and cafes.
