My Illlustrated Travel Journal with Essays about Roman and Mediaeval History and some Geology

  A Little Autumn Tour

I will be away for a few days traveling to Erfurt, Weimar and Jena in Thuringia. I've mentioned Erfurt a few times in my history posts; the town played an important role in the Middle Ages.

Weimar, and to some extent Jena as well, are mostly connected with the Weimar Classicism, an important period in German literature during the late 18th century. Its most famous representants are Johann Wolfgang von Goethe und Friedrich von Schiller. Visiting Weimar is pretty much like visiting Stratford-upon-Avon for the English people.

So there should be some Mediaeval buildings, maybe even a castle or two, and several late 18th century sites, for a change.

I'll leave you with a pretty sunset over the Baltic Sea.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
