Around the Town (or Ort)...

We've had several more requests for photos of Germany, so here are some interesting buildings close to our house

There are lots of 'Fachwerk' buildings.  This one mixes the old (wooden beams and brick) with a glass conservatory
I love this feature that looks stuck-on the corner of this house
Another 'Fachwerk' buiding - probably a barn.  But behind it is Schloss (palace) Herrenberg, dating back to 1228 (Pfalzgrafen Rudolf II von Tubingen, or Duke Rudolf from Tubingen)
A traffic jam in Jettingen
Unter Jettingen's only traffic light.
The Jettingen Kirche (church)
"Main Street" in Unter Jettingen
A local "Gastube" or guesthouse.  They usually have really good (and cheap) food
A monument in the middle of the traffic circle.  Stuttgart and the surrounding area were heavily bombed by the US during WWII
An ice storm back in late January
A little closer to home - the Kindergarden across the street looks a bit like a bunker...
Our plan is to visit one of the local castles tomorrow, so hopefully there will be more exciting pictures soon.
