Suhl has an excellent connection to all major cities through new built "autobahns" It is nicely located in the Thuringian Forest and should prosper - but so far it does not. Even tourism is slow.
Elizabeth, my second wife loves to visit Thuringia.
In Siegritz she went alone on hiking tours.

in the pedestrian zone of Suhl

Public transportation brings you directly to the downtown area with all the stores, coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants.
It is still filled with live and very clean. People love to go there. Naturally there are also supper stores, but the are in the outskirts. Suhl is smaller than Welland where we live, but it has a much better infrastructure and offers much more to visitors. In addition the surrounding Thuringian Forest is a benefit which we do not have.
After the unification much renovation has been done and you see buildings in the old socialist style mixed with renovated old houses.
Unfortunately, much of the former industry folded up and only few new jobs could be created. That means that many young people had to move away and the remaining population is getting older and older.

Suhl is smaller than Welland, but people ere using the busses much better!

In Suhl she is also using public transportation.
She went tanning, swimming in the Ottilienbad and shopping - all on her own. She learned some German when we lived for one year close to Munich and she works in Canada as a nurse in a nursing home with many German residents.
Suhl is already part of our basic travel guide for Thuringia. But nevertheless we show sow some more pictures is this sightseeing overview.

Elizabeth did not ask a single time to go to a McDonald's which is naturally also present in Thuringia and preferred by young people and kids.
We checked one out, the offered food is slightly different to Canada and you must pay extra for ketchup, what I thought is a rip off. Hopefully they will change that!
Elizabeth loves her work and she did not get lots of time off. For that reasons she had to leave earlier.

In this restaurant we had a fare well dinner together with friends of Harry, my son

Harry, my son from the first marriage drove us to Frankfurt airport.
We had a last coffee together there. German coffee is much stronger and far more expensive than in North America. Also free refills are offered nowhere. Elizabeth learned that the hard way!
On the picture she is smiling for the camera, but I know she wanted to stay longer. But her over eighty years old lovely mom who lives still in her own house needs her back in Canada. Also our cats will miss her. In addition she was still working in s nurse in a nursing home.
I had to change my business and we did quiet a bit renovation on our home, but I hoped that we could visit Thuringia again in 2008, but unfortunately this was not possible. In addition we want to explore northern Ontario a little bit more. This has to wait now too.
But we still have a dream.

Good bye to Lizzy at Frankfurt airport

After my wife has left I was on my own to explore Thuringia. My son was busy in his company and was not able to spend all day with me.
I soon became the impression that I already had seen more from Thuringia than he did. On the other hand, he had been in areas of Canada which we never had visited.

At the Ringberg Hotel you have a fantastic view of the Thuringian Forest

I created a brief web site about this hotel, because you can see it almost from everywhere around Suhl. I was excited about the panoramic view which you have from the mountain top where the hotel is located.
I would use this as place to stay in Suhl - it offers so much and they supported me with pictures. Other places did not even respond!
