F is for Freudenstadt, Germany

The FOUNTAIN in FREUDENSTADT, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany.

This is Freudenstadt, a town in the Northern part of the famous Black FOREST in Germany. It was one FINE Sunday when the FAMILY decided to go for a drive through the Black FOREST and then stop by FREUDENSTADT for lunch and a little sightseeing at the Marktplatz, FREUDENSTADT's central feature which is surrounded by arcaded houses. It is one of the largest market squares in Germany with an area of around 11 acres.

The Stadtkirche (Town Church) at the South corner of Marktplatz was built in 1601-08 and restored in 1951 after WWII. It consists of two naves at right angles to one another, one for men and the other for women. It also has a lectern of 1140, borne by figures of the four Evangelists, and an 11th-12th century font.

And with a spacious green FIELD, our little one really had lots of FUN frolicking about!
