When travelling abroad, the best place to select accommodation is to select a town, in between two of your destinations. This way you get to explore a third place which you wouldn’t bother to stop by otherwise. When going from the Black Forest region of Germany to the city of Munich, I did the same. I stayed the night at Weinheim, Germany.

Weinheim is a small town of Germany nearby the city of Heidelberg. It has some castles, an old synagogue and a Lake called Waidsee. There is also the Miramar next to the lake Waidsee, which is a thermal spa and sauna complex. The town is situated in a valley and has lots of fields, markets, and an exotic forest too.

I had my accommodation nearby the Waidsee Lake at NH Hotel. In the morning, I woke up to explore it thoroughly. After taking my maps and asking a few directions to the early risers. I made my way through the paths across the fields laden with crops on both sides.

On the way, I also came across the Miramar. And then as I walked past Miramar some twinkling blue towards my left caught my attention. There I was standing across the Lake.

The trail

I picked up a trail that went around the Lake. It was a walk of around 45 minutes. All along the trail were different types of plants and trees. In and around the lake I spotted some birds too.
