Last Saturday, we went for a hike near Solingen. This city is known for manufacturing swords, knives and scissors, such Wüsthof & J.K. Henckels. We didn’t go there for that reason, but we did stop in one shop and see some knives and that was the extent of it.
That morning a light snow was covering the ground, but by the time we got out for our hike it was already melting and the sun was shining, which is a rare thing! The hiking trail followed along a river. We hiked up to a schloss/burg (castle), looked around, had some hot chocolate and then headed back to the car.
We had somewhat of a short hike, as I wanted to stop in the Haribo factory before it closed! This is heaven for anyone that loves gummy treats and in my family there are a few.
