My initiation to Dortmund started with a visit to the Dortmund tower with mama and papa Wenger.   It was a cold and steely day but one could still see the city and get a general view.

The next outing was to Hohensyburg and a visit to the monument commemorating the first unification of Germany and the declaration of the German Empire on January 18, 1871, where the King of Prussia was declared Kaiser Wilhelm I.

Sadly the reason we sere in Dortmund this time was to bid farewell to Dr. Wenger.  Our beloved Heiner who passed away in after a shrot battle with cancer.  Stephan had already gone to be with the family and I took the fast train from Frankfurt to Dortmund, which was amazingly hassle free and fast.

We were in Dortmund to keep Johanna company on the first Christmas she was alone without Heiner
