Ledward Barracks in Schweinfurt

Friday evening we arrived in Schweinfurt for our weekend visit. We still had some time before meeting family, so we decided to swing by Ledward Barracks.

The gate on the right was closed and the barracks looked somewhat deserted.

The left gate had just opened to let this big bus in.

By 2014, all troops will have left and the same is happening with Leighton Barracks in Würzburg now.

The latter news were just published two days ago, with an article in the Mainpost Newspaper Würzburg kauft Leighton-Areal (in German). The city of Würzburg is buying Leighton for euro 130 million.

German Autobahn and Franconian Sights

Impressions of Franconia can vary greatly as these photos can attest to. They were taken within fifteen minutes from each other on two different Autobahnen, A3 and A7.

Luke and Duke, the Nukes in Grafenrheinfeld

Luke and Duke, the Nuclear Power Plant towers, have been around since the 1970s. Their ugly pillars loom over the industrial town of Schweinfurt and really darken its rainy skies occasionally.

Vineyards in the sun

While resting at a Autobahn Raststätte on the A7, I got to see a very different view of Franconian culture and  its agricultural highlight – vines on every hill.

The area between Schweinfurt und Würzburg, especially around Zeilitzheim, is full of lovely wine fests in the summer.
