Yesterday evening we drove through the dark but beautifully lit Odenwald to a little village nearby; Fischbachtal.
So many leftovers of snow that have never reached us down in the Rhinevalley.
While going from one hill to another, we all of a sudden saw an orange glow behind a hill. It was the moon rising, and it almost looked unreal, so orange (again!) and relatively large.
With the main road towards the Schloss Lichtenberg being blocked we ended down in the village Fischbachtal. From a rather empty parkinglot we walked the small road towards the Schloss, 80m above us.
After getting some sausages to eat at the stand from Metzgerei Ritter we walked all the way up to the Schloss. In the little niches more stands with all kinds of creative handmade colourful glasses, lovely looking trolls, and handcut wood.
On top of the Schloss there was even more to see.
The most lovely one was the stand which had all kinds of candles, they had lit a lot of them up and put them alongside the old walls. With their shapes and glow it finally started to feel a bit like Christmas.
Down in the village we were searching for a stand where they would sell Crepes. We found one in a windy corner and after a long while freezing and waiting, we finally got our Crepes. Not the usual ones, with Nutella, but with real Hazelnuss-Nougat and Vanilla cream. So much nicer and tastier than what we’ve tried before!
Before the market would close, we were already walking back to the parking lot, and we found our way back through the lovely Odenwald, it was all quiet, except for the lights and the moon that kept on following us.
