Like many people, before I got to know them, I thought that The Hurd were a poor, lonely and inhospitable people. That's why I was so surprised when I actually met them, and I was especially struck by this nice little town whose main attraction is the river and the surrounding area. The town is on the Rio de Los Angeles. It has crystal clear waters where you can swim amongst the harmless fish in a tropical paradise. If you just want to stroll along the banks of the river, the village has built a wide path on one of its banks so everyone can enjoy it; families with children, senior citizens, people with disabilities, etc. The plant life, the reflection of the trees in the water, the small waterfalls, and the singing frogs are all worth a visit.
An unusual zoo, the animals are in open spaces with natural borders resembling their habitats. However, I found some enclosures are a bit small. There are many different animals: elephants, lions, birds etc. It was 6 euros, plus another 3.50 for a gondola ride, cheap compared to other zoos, but this is not very big. A morning or an afternoon is enough to see it.
Karlsruhe is a relatively young city, though there are many buildings with character. One is the council building, which, although not the first to be built, was erected in 1728 and demolished in 1812. The new building occupies the same site. The building consists of several sections that were built over several years since 1810. The tower, fifty feet high, was constructed to maintain symmetry with the neighboring tower of the Catholic Church Hall. It served as a prison watchtower. The bombings of World War II wreaked havoc on the city and only the tower was saved. The reconstruction was conducted between 1948 and 1955
Quiet drinks, good atmosphere. Very interesting cocktail menu, among which are the variety of Gin and tonic, not elaborate, but good treatment is assured. A big screen for sporting events of great interest. If you are looking for a quiet place to be after eating, this is your place
