What I like about visiting foreign countries is to feel like an explorer. Wherever I go, I gather new impressions: visions, smells, tastes, and feelings when making new experiences.
That is why I also love hosting and accompanying people who haven’t been to Germany before: I get to explore familiar placed from a new perspective.
On Monday, we went on a scavenger hunt in Kronberg and visited the town’s medieval castle. What I enjoyed about it most about it was to reflect upon topics I hadnt’t considered in a while, such as:
- How is a fachwerk house* constructed? (*traditional German architecture)
- What does a typical „Altstadt“* look like? (Old town)
- Why did towns use to have walls and forts to protect them?
Besides, the town’s major welcomed our group, a local newspaper interviewed us and we had the honor to sign Kronberg’s guest book.
