|A view of Miltenburg, Germany and the AmaCerto from the castle|
After our tour I wandered the town looking for a place to have a beer and some local fare. I walked into the recommended old hotel and a group of about 30 followed behind me. Next! So I wandered into this place and that looking for one that had charm both inside and out. Finally, a bit out of the tour area I came across Restaurant “Das Holzinger” which is part of an old hotel. I sat in a little garden and attempted to order, but the menu was only in German and not much English was spoken. I asked for a Pils (pilsner beer) just fine, but as for the food, when we got to something the woman could not explain in English I said “I’ll order that!” She looked at me curiously and walked away.
After my tasting I returned to the ship in Werthheim and had just a bit of free time before the ship was to arrive. However, just as the shops were about to close we were advised there would be about an hour late. So with the shops closed and a light rain falling, there was only one thing to do: Find a pub…actually two! (I felt it was important to sample two different pubs and two different beers in my time there.) While most took it in stride (AmaWaterways tells you in their welcoming talk that patience for such things is required because of all of the locks), I took it as an opportunity.

Then, in the corner of my eye, I saw a bratwurst truck. Long and fairly slender, but too long for the crusty roll, it was a great investment of two euros! Delicious…both the bratwurst and the bread.
|Interesting and Curious: The bratwurst was 50% longer than the bun.|
Solution: Fold it over, but then half has two sausages and half has one

Next up is the Goldring Travel Brewery Tour and Beer Tasting, but not before some scenic cruising!
