For years we have passed the station “Jena – Paradies” (Paradies = paradise) on our way to Leipzig or Berlin – without ever alighting and/or visiting Jena. Wolfgang decided it was time for a change. He bought first class tickets for the ICE (intercity express) as well as tickets for a musical at the planetarium.
On Friday, 2015-04-10, 6:35 a.m., we boarded the ICE, reaching our goal at 8:43 a.m. We had to hurry to claim our tickets for the matinée. Despite that I had sufficient opportunity for taking some nice shots.

Before heading back to the train station – guess what? We visited a pub. 😀
Wolfgang had a Newcastle Brown Ale, I had a pint of Guinness.
We had a great time in the Fiddler’s Green pub:
