Visit to Germany (02-09/07/06)

Day 2: Aschaffenburg

We spent the day leisurely, strolling in the town, shopping, sightseeing and meeting friends.

In the afternoon Veronika, who is a town guide, showed us around the garden of the Capuchin monastery, which she was privileged to enter with personal guests. Founded in 1528 the Capuchin Order is a branch of the Order of St. Francis. She also took us to see the new flats behind the Rathaus and Dalbergstraße. The flats are modern, well designed and landscaped. There were small statues scattered around on the streets. With their inner courts and all the greenery one felt more in Italy than Germany.
