Exchange 2019 / Tuesday 30th April: GERMAN STUDENTS' FIRST DAY @ CORUÑA




First day of the German students in A Coruña. This morning they visited the Domus (first two photos: German students and their teachers: Julia Westenburger & Christian Derendorf) and the Torre de Hércules.

These visits came after having been welcomed by the Spanish teachers and the school's vice-principal and having had breakfast at school.



In the afternoon, they even went for a walk along the beach shore... It's because they don't have a beach near in Kronberg.

Exchange 2019 / Private visit Sunday 7th April: NEROPARK & BOWLING GREEN, WIESBADEN





Exchange 2019 / Private visit Sunday 7th April: NEROBERG-RUSSISCHE KIRKE, WIESBADEN








Exchange 2019 / Private visits Sunday 7th April: NEROBERGBAHN, WIESBADEN




The Nerobergbahn is a funicular railway in the city of Wiesbaden, Germany. The line links the city with the Neroberg hill to its north, where visitors may view a panorama of the city.
The line opened in 1888, and is one of the few funiculars with water propulsion. At the upper station, tanks on the downbound car are filled with up to 7,000 litres of water to ensure that it is heavier than the upbound car. The downbound car then pulls the upbound car uphill with a 452-metre long steel cable. When the downbound carriage arrives at the lower station, the water is discharged and pumped uphill.
In 1939, it was planned to convert the line to electric propulsion and to provide larger cars, but the outbreak of World War II prevented this. The line was taken out of service in 1944 due to war damage, and service was restarted in 1948. In 1988 the line was protected as a technical monument by the State of Hesse.
