Visiting Jena in Thuringia, Germany

I finally visited one of the states  that I wanted to go in Germany. My dream of visiting Thuringia (Thüringen in German)  did happened last December 2012.  It was only a short visit in the city Jena but  I was already happy and contented with it. Jena is the second largest city in Thuringia after Erfurt. The latter is the  capital city of the state of Thuringia.

I joined a bus trip with a group of retired German folks who went there to visit the Christmas market. We actually visited  three cities including Erfurt, Weimar and Jena.  Since none of my friends joined me  during that trip, I was alone walking in the city. I am already use to  travel alone sometimes.  My opinion is, if I wait for somebody to go with me,  I might not be able to do some trips. It is because  some of friends have to work or  some of them have some errands to do when I go somewhere for sightseeing. Some also don’t have enough budget to go with me.  That is the reason why I really save when I go on trips like this.

I had a walk on most of the part  Old Town part of Jena. I visited the Powder Tower,  13th century Town Hall (“Rathaus in German”), the Jen-Tower, the the Kulturhaus, the the Thuringian University and State Library and many other historical buildings in this city. That was only a short visit in Jena but I am so happy to be there once in my life. I am thinking  of going back there again.
