Dom zu Speyer & Weihnachtmarkt

TODAY WE DROPPED THE KIDS OFF AT SCHOOL, left Jazlynn with a friend, and carted off to Speyer, about 20 minutes away.

Speyer is a beautiful small city.  It’s landmark is the Dom zu Speyer, an ancient Cathedral that holds the remains of almost a dozen former emperors and kings in the crypts beneath the nave, same laid to rest almost 1000 years ago.   It provides a striking view against the blue sky and some colorful artwork in the interior.

From there, we walked to the downtown for another Weinachtmarkt, another glass of Glühwein, and an excellent lunch that could only happen sans kids (photos).   We did a little walking and shopping, but it was too cold to enjoy outside for long.
