I landed at Hildesheim Airport in Germany. I stayed in Hanover which is in Northern Germany. I learned a little bit of German before arriving because, duh, thats what they speak in Germany. Germany is in Western Europe by Poland and France. The main religion is Catholic.

I stopped at Buchenwald Concentration Camp. Just outside the camp by the east guard tower they had bears kept like a zoo. Buchenwald was the first, and largest, Nazi Concentration Camp. Now it is used as a Memorial. It was built by Weimar, Germany. It was built in 1937. The camp imprisoned Jews, Poles, Slovenes, Roma, Sinti, Freemasons, Jehovah's Witnesses, criminals, homosexuals, and p.o.w's.


Next I visited the Coburg Marketplace. That's a marketplace in the urban center of Coburg. It was created in the 15th century. It has 250 stores as well as a City Hall, and Town Hall. In the Center there is a Prince Albert Memorial. The Memorial is facing City Hall and is wearing robes of a Knight of the Garter.
