Project 365: Day 282 – One of the Bismarck towers, in Radebeul


9th April 2015 – Radebeul, Germany

The city held no promise, so I headed deep
Into the suburbs, into a lost town called Radebeul.
After the wines were tasted, and the heights covered
We even had to honor Bismarck, as a general rule.

Its so big!! – Bismarckturm in Radebeul, Germany

 

I think I had seen enough of Dresden already. So, I took a train, and headed to Radebeul, in the suburbs of Dresden.

I never had Radebeul on my plans. It happened as a result of a couchsurfing invite from Ellie, who lived there. And when I checked it up, Radebeul had some amazing vineyards, and beautiful, short treks. So, I took it up and decided to stay in her beautiful, spotless house for a day.

A couple of hours after meeting, me and Ellie were walking around the vineyards, heading towards the Spitzhaus, a restaurant perched above the hill. And on the way, we sampled the local wines in a winehouse, and continued climbing uphill.

After a while, we were finally at the Bismarck tower. There are still 145 Bismarck towers around Germany which were built in honour of Prince Otto Von Bismarck.

With spring finally showing a little promise, people gathered here to look down at the Radebeul valley and enjoy a little picnic.
