Germany TripTrip to Germany, Switzerland and Lichtenstein is a success!
By: Scribe Staff, Sibley Scribe
Thirty students had the chance to go parts of southern Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein and Switzerland as part of Sibley’s biennial Spring Break trip to central Europe. This year’s voyage took place in the Alps, so the weather was cool and snowy - not very springlike. The group, led by German teacher Tony Kienitz, started out in Rothenberg, then headed to Munich where they saw the Marienplatz and visitedthe city. They also got to visit the salt mines and later visit the Austrian city of Salzburg. They got to visit the 19th century Neuschwanstein Castle on their way to Switzerland. Right in the middle of Switzerland is Mount Pilatus, where a fierce dragon is supposed to live during the Middle Ages. The group passed through here, and also visited Lucerne before heading back to Germany. They then traveled through the fabled Black Forest and Rhine Falls to the historical town of Heidelberg. As always with these trips, the participants talked about having a wonderful time and enjoying every second. For most participants, it was their first trip abroad, but judging from their excitement, it will not be their last.
