Sunday in My City and Father's Day!

This is my last Sunday in the City from Bremen, Germany. Next Sunday we will be in Western NY...suffering from jet lag but happy to be starting a new adventure.
Today is Father's Day! Happy Father's Day to my Dad and my babies Daddy and to all the Father's out there in Blogland. I hope you day is extra special.



To honor these two men, one of the things they both enjoy is a good glass or bottle of Merlot. We took a tour of Bremen Ratskeller located under the Rathaus in the center of the city. The Ratskeller is a restuarant and a wine cellar, one of the oldest in Germany. It's a must do if you ever visit here.



Oldest bottle is behind this door-1653


Famous German Poet Heinrich Heine, spent many nights in the Ratskeller drinking wine and writing famous poems.


Beautiful Fresco's 


Barrels and Barrels of wine once was stored here.



We did the wine tasting in a special room in the cellar, it was so dark only lite by candles, I didn't even know the color of wine until I tasted it. I was an amazing tour and I'm glad we did it before leaving Bremen. 
Cheers to all the Dad's Today!
