Such a beautiful day to spend half the day, wish I'd booked for a full day. Very fortunate to have only 2 people on the tour. Our tour guide Elizabet was so lovely and spoke amazing English. The trip to the marzipan museum was a great extra to the morning. Such amazingly creative people who sculpt the cakes. Such a fantastic small town. Enjoyed some clothes shopping and a very tasty ice cream here too. Sitting on a bench close to the Danube in peace and tranquility was amazing.
