Ravensburg is a little German town, actually the capital of the district of Ravensburg, Baden-Wuertenberg.

A really beautiful medieval town with over 10 towers all over the town and beautiful buildings.

The people there are really relaxed, you have to feeling that they have nothing to worry about and this thing make you relaxed as well.

We had the opportunity to watch a soccer game, Germany vs England, with a lot of people together in a small bear garden, like a big family, a lot of fans together watching the glorious win of Germany. The atmosphere not really describable, you have to see it, to feel it.

The citizens of Ravensburg built an tower about 50 meters high, to be able to look at the offical of the emperor.
