    1. I know! So many baked goods to try. I love German style breakfasts as well - with the freshly baked rolls in the morning. Delicious!

  3. Haha! I have never read a post about Germany from anybody outside Germany! :-) I also love the things you pointed out! Especially the bakeries!!! I have been missing those so much when I lived in London... There is just nothing better than fresh pastry or fresh bread rolls for breakfast!!!
