On average, I spend about one day a month at my client in Marbach, the Deutsche Literaturarchiv (German Literature Archive). I have showed you pictures of this fascinating place before; for instance here or more recently in my January Summary.
I was back there again on the 7th of this month, to give my annual in-house data protection training to the employees. Between the morning and afternoon session, I had almost 2 hours to myself, and I used them well: First for a meal at the nearby restaurant "Schillerhöhe", and afterwards for a nice long walk.
Here are the pictures I took that day with my mobile.
The room where this year's training took place. The portrait is of Alexander Humboldt.
Walkway along the LiMo (Literaturmuseum der Moderne) - this is the "New" I hinted at in this post's title - and the Schiller Nationalmuseum, the "Old":
View from LiMo's terrace across the river Neckar valley:
The train that takes me to and from Marbach comes across this viaduct:
I did not venture very far, but came across a footbridge I'd never been to before. Of course I had to walk on it and look at what I could see from there.
As you can see, the weather was better than at my last visit! The sun was welcome, and there were birds everywhere; in the gardens I walked past, snowdrops, crocus and aconites adorned the ground, and winter jasmine added even more yellow.
Can you tell I do like my Marbach days?
