I can’t get enough of the castles.  Germany is fairytale country.

“In addition to being a place of immense beauty, Baden-Württemberg is home to the Hohenzollern Castle, the former seat of the House of Hohenzollern. This intimidating and majestic castle is in the Swabian Alps, near the town of Bisingen, and is perched on top of a mountain.”  Read the entire blog post here.

Geek Mädel will help you with that permanent residency permit.

It will take some paperwork (I should know, I’ve been through the process too), but it isn’t impossible.  And with a little advice, you’ll kick its ehem.  Now click here to get to the good advice.

German Cuisine: My German Herb Garden

Today was the day – I finally had all seven herbs together for Grüne Soße, the famous cold herb sauce from my hometown Frankfurt. In the city and its surroundings, the seven herbs are sold in a white paper wrapping with the recipe printed on it. Here in America, six of the seven herbs come from my garden, and the seventh, alfalfa, from a sprouter on the windowsill in my kitchen.

It is an urban legend that Grüne Soße was Goethe’s favorite dish, as the organizers of the Grüne Soße Festival point out on their website. Yes, Grüne Soße is so special to Frankfurt that since 2009 the dish has its own festival, with a competition for high-school classes to determine who makes the best Grüne Soße.

At long last the blog hop arrives at my favorite subject: travel. Have you traveled in Germany?  Have you blogged about things to see in the town where you live?  Then you can add a link to your post in the linky tool below, and we can all drool over each other’s photographs.

What is a blog hop and how do I join?

A blog hop is a way to collect links for blogs on a similar topic, to make it easy to find other bloggers and to get conversation started.  So you write a post talking about travel in Germany, or find an older post in which you talk about the same.  Then you add your link using the tool below.

This week the ball is in your court: YG is in England this week and won’t be around to comb the blogs for the most interesting Germany-related posts to share here.

Instead, I hoped that you all might tell me what the week’s best was: Just add a link in the comments if you’ve read an interesting blog or news post about Germany this week.  I look forward to catching up with them all when I get back.  And have a great weekend!

I know I would appreciate having the chance.  Monday on The Local

SPD Vice-President Ralf Stegner said on Sunday that “people who live, work, pay taxes, should also be allowed to vote. Why should we withhold this essential civil right from them?””  Read the entire article here.
