Marburg Weekend Trip #1

Marburg was an absolutely stunning place to visit. Marburg was practically untouched by the war, unlike Nürnberg. All the old cottage style homes are original and the castle is looks perfectly intact. We stayed for 2 nights in a hotel and also went out both nights with our class. Friday night we ate some of the best German food yet, and then sat around the table and drank into the late night. On Saturday we had a lecture with Dr. Wolfgang and toured the International Criminal Courts Documentation Center. Afterwards, we took a tour of the city with a profound Historian and he showed us everything in the city that connected with the Third Reich. We even saw where Hindenburg was buried. If you didn’t know, Hindenburg was the President of Germany and helped Hitler to power.

That night Germany played in the Eurocup. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
