Celebrating Hessen


To celebrate German Unity Day, the houses of the different German Bundesländer were open to the public. There was food and music typical to each of the states as well as stands showing off the best sites and tourist attractions. It was fun to see inside all of the different buildings and I was happy to snap some new Buddy Bears. This one is from the state of Hessen.

PS: I'm posting more regularly on my travel blog, Halcyon Travels. You can find it here.
