I have been attracted to the "Altmühltal" area since I had my first motorized vehicle. For that reason it is not a surprise that I showed it to Elizabeth.
When we came to Eichstätt, I told her that this is a very old town. Now I learned that it is
even older than I thought. The name was mentioned for the first time in the year 740 and it has been the residence of bishops since the middle ages. It is also a university town.
The best way to explore places such as Eichstätt is to walk. So we parked our little North American built car and walked again.

We loved it to see all the old and well maintained houses and churches. As usual, Elizabeth needed her coffee and a cheesecake after a certain time.
After that we went window shopping. The absence of big malls is keeping the downtown areas in many cities alive and the privately operated stores offer a wide variety of unique products which is remarkable because Eichstätt has only a population of about 14 000.
I think the tourists keep the stores going.

Elizabeth never got tired to see more historical buildings after she had her coffee and the cake.
At this time I was still able to keep up with her. Today she must do most of the walking alone and I do some sightseeing which does not require lots of it - work or pleasure sharing!
We learned that Eichstätt has a Roman Catholic university. However, we did not see it.
But we enjoyed beautiful sights and we understood that Eichstätt is called the gate to the "Naturpark Altmühltal".
Certainly an excellent place to find an accommodation to explore this "little" paradise. Actually the park is according to the literature the largest nature park of Germany. I cannot proof that.
