Last night we went to Erlangen to visit some friends who have become very dear to me since moving here. Erlangen is a city about 2 exits away on the autobahn from us. It is the one the headquarters for the Siemens company. It is not a huge city by any means but does have a relatively large and lively downtown for shopping, farmers markets, bars and restaurants. It’s lovely to note that it also has a Schlossgarten ( former castle now a park) with a botanical garden attached. Last night was a lovely evening for sitting in the park to people watch. While exploring the town I saw this sign.
I was sure it was a clever sign for a chiropractor’s office until I saw the clientele sitting outside at tables enjoying themselves. Immediately it was obvious that it was a bakery. As I continued through the city center I saw a few Backwerks and realized its a bakery chain. Sometimes the simplest things are funny to a new person:
Bäckerei = Bakery, thus Back=bake
Here is a view from my spot at the Schlossgarten
