Schweinfurt WildPark
European River Cruise - Christmas Markets in Germany!

Today we dropped my dad at the train station so that he could travel to north to Berlin. Then we headed to the Wildpark outside of Schweinfurt. This park is entirely funded by local community donations. It houses deer, elk, moose, wild boar, and various native birds in natural habitats. Among the more interesting exhibits are a completely albino deer and an overlook platform allowing you to look right down on the fierce looking wild boar. They also have a spacious petting zoo and some of the best children's play areas I've ever seen including a 40 foot seesaw that requires at least two adults to get moving. The entire facility is free to enter and has dozens of tree-lined paths winding throughout to allow the local citizens a chance to fit in their daily walks, a mainstay for many Germany people.

Tonight Edith made rouladen for dinner. This traditional Bavarian dish is made from extremely thin cuts of beef. Mustard, pickles, mushrooms, and other fillings are added to the beef and then the beef strips are rolled up and baked with gravy.
