For years Simon has been telling me about this fairytale place from his childhood. He described it as straight out of Hansel and Gretel. It is his Aunt Jenny and Uncle Kurt’s vacation home and he used to go and visit his cousins there. Opa Friedel and Simon decided to take the girls there one day. It’s about an hour and a half drive from Köln. The girls had a BLAST exploring, just like their Papa. Kiera just saw these pictures and said, “Ooh! It’s the Fairytale Forest!”
Simon said he had the best fish he’s ever eaten at this little restaurant. The fish comes from the pond just behind the restaurant.
