On the way to Schramberg we breezed past a place that said "Welschdorf" so we went back to have a closer look. It seems as if the village of Welschdorf doesn’t exist per sé but I got a photo of a restaurant with that on the sign. We stopped again in Alpirsbach for a tour of the Alpirsbach brewery but, sadly, it was closed. We had to wander around Schramberg a while looking for the Stadtmuseum where we’d heard there was a clock collection. The lady there said it closed at 6:30 but it seemed to me that we had lots of time. They had a huge clock there and the woman activated it manually so we could see the 8 passion scenes it displays. About 45 minutes after entering, the lady started turning off lights.
We decided to backtrack to choose one of the places we’d seen on the road between Schramberg and Hornberg. Unfortunately, we saw nothing great and started back towards Hornberg once again. Lin mentioned that she’d seen a small sign indicating Hohenschramberg and that it had a bed and crossed knife and fork on it. I turned off onto a small road that twisted up onto the mountain. At times it was pretty frightening as the road was narrow, winding and had a drop on one side and went up on the other.
We took a brief walk outside after dinner. The castle is lit with spotlights from below so it must look great from the city. The lighting made the walking tricky, though, so we retreated to bed.
