Views of Jena II

I am preparing for my next trip which will be to Jena, Germany.

Therefore I thought I would share a few more pictures from Jena.

These are from the area around my hotel in Lobeda, which is in the southern part of the city.

Steigenber Maxx hotel, Jena Germany, TravelI will be staying at the Steigenberg Maxx Hotel. It may be an unfamiliar name for many of you, but it is a popular hotel chain in Germany. It will be a short walk to work everyday, hopefully it won’t rain much šŸ™‚

One evening I took a walk down to the bridge.

Saale Valley, Saale River, E40, Jena GermanyDespite the graffiti at the base of the bridge this is a very scenic bridge.

The bridge carries traffic on the E40 over the Saale River and the Saale Valley. The river is very small in comparison to the valley, and is on the far end of the bridge. It goes through only one of these arches.

I am looking forward to visiting many places in Jena where I have not been for a long time. I definitely have a much better camera now and am looking forward to some better pictures.
