Villingen-Schwenningen: a trip back in time



It’s admittingly hard to travel back into the past, if you are lacking a time travel device. But there is a city you can visit, where such a device is not necessary. You can get there all on your own, back to the Middle Ages, back when the night watchman did its nightly rounds within the tall city walls.

The Stuttgart Maredo - a great restaurant for meat lovers



I have been getting a lot of requests over Facebook, of where to take the family out to dinner for those special holidays coming up…or at any time really. So, I decided to stop by the Maredo Steakhouse in the center of Stuttgart, on the Lange Street cornering Kronprinzstreet. I sat down to talk with the Manager Mr. Uwe Mack and enquired about their opening hours during the Christmas and New Year’s season. He replied that they only really close the place up for Christmas Eve to make sure the employees get to spend the 24th of December with their families. December 25th (Christmas Day) and the 26th (Boxing Day) they are open. That goes for New Year’s as well.  Many of the family-owned businesses are usually closed over the holidays.
