A weekend in the Eifel

We spent this weekend in the hilly Vulkaneifel region of Germany, visiting the pretty town of Kaisersesch.

The first thing we noticed was that something about the spire of the church next to our hotel didn’t seem quite right.

Had the spire-builders been on the schnapps?

In fact from below it looked a bit like a witch’s hat…

Wonky spire... with a brim

The historic prison building had forgotton to release this chap when it finally stopped being a jail and started being a museum…

Could anyone lend me a nail file?

Other statues in the town seemed to be having more fun….

Come on in! The water's lovely!

Typical local postal worker?
