Noerdlingen-a Bavarian town in a crater

September 4, 2011 2 comments

Alas!! It has been more than 10 days since I came to Noerdlingen and will erode if I don’t write about the city…well then my impressions about this small town will be the highlight of this post.

Noerdlingen, a town in the state of Bavaria has population of around 20,000 people. This town sits near the impact point of a meteorite,  Noerdlinger Ries, happened 15 million years ago has a visible  depression of the crate even now. As a tourist attraction, the town holds one of the 3 city walls in Germany with five gates, a covered walkway connecting 16 towers with total distance spanning around 3 kms.

I do like the Grocery stores and the big supermarkets with in numerous varieties to purchase especially non-veg items.

At times I never miss to hear a guard crying near the church bell tower at St. Gothic church in the middle of the town even during late nights.

Old buildings converted into houses, hotels and shops are few good attractions.

The attractions may pull me one side but the necessity to speak German makes me docile. In few months, I may start writing some German phrases on my own…watch this space for more 🙂
