Why? Opportunity to do Christmas Shopping and bring gifts back to the US late, opportunity to drink gluwein at each city and get the commemorative cups, to see the beautiful decorations everywhere, sales booths made up like log cabins, the lights, many towns set up a portable ice skating rink nearby and do skate rentals, we had school kids come down one day and sing Christmas carols on the street for tips, Living Nativity scenes with animals, buying kindereggs, eating brats off the grill, all the other food--nuts, candy, fish sandwiches, etc; and so much more.
I came over on the boat, and boy, are my arms tired from rowing!
