Well we spent three days poodling around Germany before going to Denmark because we knew that Denmark would be expensive. We checked out one of the castles near Munster- it was OK – quite neat on the outside but very museumy on the inside.
We had picked up a Europcar in Munster and they told us that the best place to drop it back near Denmark – there are huge costs to taking a car between couontries – would be Kiel. So we went to Lubeck for a night because someone had told Nick that it was really nice, and then off to Kiel.
Only problem was that we didn’t have a booking in Kiel and it was the first night of the week long Kiel festival. So we ended up at a very expensive hotel. And then we found out that to get to Denmark by train we had to go back to Lubeck!! But the festival opening was fun – lots of food and beer tents all around the harbour and rides etc – a real festival atmoosphere with loads of drunk teens…
Then back on the train and back through Lubeck, on the ferry and up to Roskilde where the Viking ship museum is.
