We finally found parking in an underground garage at Stadspark where there was a market or festival going on.
Helpoort, the only remaining medieval gate along the first line of city walls dating back to the 13th century
We sorted through a large stack of maps that appear to be all from the same German book from 1896.
We chose 5 letter-sized maps of Prag (Prague), Athen (Athens), Berlin, München (Munich), & 2 halfsize maps of Köln (Cologne) and Mainz which is in the Rhine Valley of Germany. Jackie studied abroad in Prague in 2005 and Joe visited her there. That year we also visited Athens, Greece. Jackie has been to Berlin, Germany and would love to go back there with Joe (5.5 hour drive). Both of us really want to visit Munich (7 hour drive). We have plans to visit Cologne in June while Jackie’s friend and old coworker Todd is visiting with his boyfriend Ken. Joe visited Mainz in the Rhine Valley in 2011 when he spent 6 weeks in Eindhoven for work and Jackie really wants to visit there with him (3.5 hour drive).
