Girls’s day out today is in Pottenstein. Evelina’s best friends Lisa is at our house for a sleepover. These two girls really hit it off at school and have been great friends. Today is Lisa’s turn to stay at our house. As a little treat and for a bit of a break we drove to a small town of Pottenstein near Nuremberg for summer toboggan rides, dinner and of course some gelato. Pottenstein is a small town of 1500 people with a very colourful history and checkered past. There is a small castle on the top of a mountain at least 3 or 4 churches and just about everything else one would need to live in a quiet idillic Bavarian town. It really is worth a visit. It is not as charming and colourful as Riquewhir but it is a 30 min drive and it is full of charm and character of its own – trust me on this.
