A rural farm surrounded by meadows and woods in the very small hamlet of Waldhof - just southeast of Iphofen....

...Spotting a small brown sign on the road indicating we had found Waldhof - we turn down a dirt/gravel road - eventually spotting a Ferienwohnungen sign leading us to an animal kingdom (cows, horses, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, a peacock, dog, lots of cats - perfect for children)....

...By 1600 we are on our way to Rothenburg o.d.T. for the umpteenth time but it's one of my all time favorite places so we have to pay at least a short evening visit. It's an effortless drive south on autobahn A7..

...Back on the roads to the farm my navigator proves once again his map reading skills have been no fluke this year. Bier and rotwein at the apartment with a dose of Olympics and we are down and out from a long driving day...

...Our mission for today includes visits to Bamberg in the morning and ....the beautiful little village of Iphofen....

..Iphofen turns out to be just as charming as everyone has written - city walls, unique city gates, remnants of a moat, lots of half timbered buildings and cobblestone streets..

...And a market square that encourages you to have a seat at one of the sidewalk cafes - which is what we automatically do - at the Café Legère Brasserie..
