Pictures: Our Stay in Marburg, Germany, During the Summer of 2011

The Wife and I stayed in Marburg, Germany, last summer before stopping in Einbeck on our way to Berlin. Marburg was by far my favorite town — with its fairytale scenery and small, college town charm — and I wanted to move there immediately. My wife, however, spent the last two years there earning her second Master’s Degree from Philipps-Universität Marburg, so she was quite done with it. This made me cry like a little bitch, so she compromised and agreed we could retire there when we’re old and crusty. So, here’s to you, Marburg! I look forward to the day I slip into the foggy wasteland of senility as I wander your magical hills and alleyways with absolutely no idea where I am!

Here are the pictures from our stay. Click one to open the gallery. We hope you enjoy them!

  1. It sure looks cute but I doubt you will find the student atmosphere very enticing as an old fart. Or the masses of American tourists.
    As for the steeple, I guess we’re just jealous of the Italians with their leaning bell tower in Pisa.


      1. Sure, why not? If I get around to it in my next life. Much more likely I’ll bump into you in Hannover though, seeing that this is where my sister lives :-)
        Good luck for the move and the learning German part.


  2. So funny… But my friend from Einbeck is living in Marburg now… Coincidences never stop. By the way: My favorite cities are Berlin and Aachen. You visited Berlin already – so if you come to Aachen, let me know and I’ll give some tips :)


      1. No. It’s about the architect in charge of designing the catholic cathedral. Legend has it he was so embarrased by the steeple coming out crooked that he hung himself from the rafters.
