We arrived in ...

...... Bad Bentheim, just across the German border. Earlier in the afternoon we visited Münster (for the quilters among us, here is the shop with all the Westfalen fabrics).

The most famous place in Bad Bentheim is the Castle, the history goes back to the year 1020. It's partly open for the public. The distinguished family zu Bentheim und Steinfurt is still living there. The famous dutch painter Jacob van Ruisdael (1628 - 1682) was fascinated by the castle and made many paintings.

Tomorrow we're heading back for the Netherlands. Tonight a pizza, because we already had the german "schnitzels" for lunch. Something very typical german: Kaffee und Kuchen (Coffee and cake) around 15.30 in the afternoon.
