“Historic cathedral with great atmosphere around it”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Open to public to roam as we please, and a great shopping and cafe scene just outside and around makes this a very nice place to visit and enjoy the shops. Easy to access with many cobbled streets and lanes for a leisurely stroll in the summer.

If staying nearby, definitely worth a visit.

“Wetzlar, Germany - a delightful little town - more than just the Cathedral”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

City is known as the "center of the optics industry," having developed lenses for cameras, and microscopes. not only is there a museum featuring such, but the landscape is dote with displays of optics, optical illusions - a do-it-touyrself bunch of discoveries really quite unusual and more than interesting. A beautiful park lies along the river L:ann, and features a beautifully arched stone bridge. I found myself doing a number of drawings (I sketch when I travel) in my one week visit. An excellent tourist map is provided, feautring historical places from the Cathedral to Goethe to I beieve one of the most extensive private collections of period European furniture from the Renaissance to the Baroque. This latter was collected by a female pediatrician, who lived in the early 20th century (see my review of this museum dated 16 June, 2013. Personally, I had a fine time searching out the points of interest, almost like a scavenger hunt.
