But, other than that, we never heard much about Limburg one way or the other, so we never specifically planned to go there. We wondered if no one talked about it because there wasn't anything there but a cathedral. Who knows? But on our trip back from the North, as I followed the map and the clock, it actually started to look like a really good place to stop for dinner.
So, we stopped, followed signs to the Altstadt, and parked right underneath a big hill. It turns out, this hill is covered partially by a beautiful Altstadt filled with narrow streets, half-timber houses, and tons of little shops. It's as lovely as any more-advertised tourist town in Germany - why hadn't we heard more about it before?? I'd recommend it in a second. The hill on which everything sits makes it all the more attractive. We walked up to the cathedral, and wandered around inside as it got dark outside (and inside!). Afterward, we wandered the Altstadt for a cheap restaurant. No Doener joints to be found, but we did find an Italian place that wasn't so bad and got a quick dinner before completing our journey to Heidelberg.
