Road trip Germany (day 2, still in Weimar)

Lots of yellow and blue on this trip :) Below the Squale 1545 against the background of the Longhouse, part of the Musikgymnasium at Schloss Belvedere (built around 300 years ago, by Duke Ernst August I)

Sometimes Roman numerals are very much in place:

Short rest in the semi-shadow after 10km hike up and down the hill.

Yes, lunch! In keeping with the yellow and blue theme 馃槑 Lovely place in the middle of a walled garden right in the centre of Weimar.

When in Weimar, gotta visit the Bauhaus museum. Interesting ideology, Bauhaus: trying to merge craftsmanship and art in various endeavors such as painting, building, furniture, ceramics and theater. Not to be confused with minimalism btw, it鈥檚 about the balance of form and function. The Bauhaus as an educational institution only lasted for a short while (1919 - 1933), but the philosophy behind it has had an enduring impact.

Besides functional concrete boxes, Weimar also has its fair share of quaint and ancient court yards:
