It all started with a stop over in Frankfurt and we decided to extend the enjoy the autumn of souther Germany. On the recommendation of a good friend we were encouraged to rent a car and explore the Black Forest Area.

Upon arrival in Frankfurt, we headed straight for the Sixth Car Rental. The options they had (due to the Frankfurt Motor Show) was a bit limited so with the goal to test something Germany made we ended up with nothing less than the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet…that was a car! With is V8 biturbo engine it was like made for the German roads, no matter city, autobahn or mountain road.

With women in the car we did a compromise, first shopping and then nature. From Frankfurt we headed therefore straight to the Wertheim Village and its outlets. We arrived in the evening to our hotel and enjoyed a german dinner with dark beer. In the morning after breakfast we checked out and went for a visit to the city´s castle. Climbing up the stairs reaching the partly destroyed castle you are amazed by its beauty and the work to build it. After enjoying the views of the town below we headed along river towards the outlet village. The outlet was large, store after store it was a shoppers paradise. With outlet prices and additional discounts both Thiri and my mother went wild. We quickly found out that for many other brands there is another even bigger outlet a few hours south, so guess where we headed next…out on the highway down south bast Stuttgart. But this time with new Oakley sun glasses and beautiful weather.
