Today we drove from Wiemar, where our hotel was, to Cologne. It was a nice drive and we were planning on seeing Thuringer Forest and Dreiglikken on the way, but it was snowing quite heavily, and therefore we were only able to drive to the bottoms of the hills of two of the ruins in Dreiglikken and take photos, and we didn't dare attempt the slick, muddy roads of Thuringer and were content to see the snow covered trees from the road. As we got nearer to Cologne, the weather had cleared up nicely and we decided to take the afternoon and spend it in a nearby southern town called Bonn. Bonn was nice enough, however, seeing as it was Easter Sunday, all the stores were closed and there weren't many people around at all. It wasn't my favorite city on the trip, but I feel as though I can't really judge it on a desolate day like today.

Beethoven
We went to the birthplace of Ludwig von Beethoven and took some photos outside because, as it was Easter, it was closed. We might come back again tomorrow or on our way to Fussen though and check it out again if we have time. Amazingly, the church was open to visitors, and photos were allowed. It was actually a really nice church with Saint sarcophagi and  beautiful stained glass windows. There was also the tomb of an Arch Bishop and a few wall paintings as well. There was also a nice Baroque University building which looked over a park. It was a nice college town, which I'm sure would be quite vibrant any other time, but as it was, it was still nice.
