Public pools and waterparks are immensely popular during the summer in Germany. While nearly every village has a local outdoor pool or swimming lake, the waterparks are a little more wide-spread. But, just like in back in the States, they have large slides, wave pools and/or nice artificial beaches.
The people that know me would probably all agree that I am not a work out kind of girl… so let’s just say I was more than surprised when I was told to check out a fitness place… oh dear, poor me. So, off I went to see what the big hype was about.
You may call us crazy, but last month we decided to take our kids to Disneyland in Paris. I do have to add, our kids are 19 and 15, but they had been bugging to going back to Disney for years now. So what do good parents do? You eventually give in, sit down and order tickets….
The Marxzell Car Museum is an hour drive from Stuttgart or 1.5 hours from Kaiserslautern. Coming from Stuttgart, take the exit Karlsbad on the A8 to Karlsruhe. At the exit turn left, and then you're only 20 minutes away from the museum. From Kaiserslautern go via Neustadt to Karlsruhe, then through Ettlingen to Marxzell. This car museum is entirely unique to Germany. It has been owned by the Reichert family for the last 50 years, and through various additions and conversions, there is now over 40,000 square feet of exhibition space. When coming to the museum, you'll notice that the first of the exhibits are already visible from the outside.
