Whenever we visited Thuringia after my son had moved his company to this new state of Germany after the peaceful unification we stayed in little Siegritz which is a part of Reurieth and later in Suhl.
We always had a good time an d the same applied to my son when he came to Canada.
We really loved Siegritz and we became good customers in the only restaurant which also offers accommodations. Whenever you see the name "Gasthaus" and you need a place to sleep ask what they offer and ask them to show you the room.
Because we were always well treated I made a free website for this place with the name "Grüne Aue".
The "Grüne Aue"
This is the so called "Stammtisch" which is reserved for local people who frequently come to this place. Many places in Germany have such a "Stammtisch".
We were allowed to use it also and we enjoyed the contact with the locals. Whenever we came to Thuringia we came back to this place and always got a souvenir when we returned to Canada.
I am sure that Elizabeth talked to the swans in English
Elizabeth was always a very adventurous girl. That did not change when we traveled. After she had tried smoked fish which my sone served on night for dinner and learned about a trout farm in nearby Trostadt she asked for directions and was on the next day hiking alone to this place.
Most of the following pictured were taken by her.
But we also visited Trostadt several times together as you will see when you browse through our Internet travel guide.
Elizabeth is a real lover of nature. Her favorites are animals, plants and clouds. I think we have now many hundreds of pictures and I love to see them on my computer.
Very close to Trostadt
Trostadt dates back to the year 796 as I learned later. Unfortunately we missed to see the remains of the former monastery. Don' ask me why. At least Elizabeth took a picture of it.

A new trend?
She made it and got a reward - smoked carp.
When we lived years ago in Bavaria for one years she learned that carp can be a delicacy. However you must know how to prepare it and they are seasonal when you want a fresh one. Only month with an "r" in the German word for it are the correct season.
This time she was lucky!
Elizabeth was happy to get here even smoked carp

There is more to see and to do in tiny little Trostadt. A well known inn, the remains of old buildings and more.
