Last weekend I went to EuroBSDCon 2010 in Karlsruhe, Germany. It was very interesting! I learnt lots, especially from the Kirk McKusick tutorial I did on the Friday. It was all paid for by work as well.
In the evenings I managed to get outside and explore Karlsruhe a bit. It’s a nice provincial town, although much of it looks like a construction site at the moment due to major metro restructuring. Karlsruhe was only built as recently as the 18th century which means it has a very well planned fan layout with the giant palace in the middle.
On Monday when my flight wasn’t until the evening I took the train out to the nearby town of Durlach, which is much older than Karlsruhe itself, being in existence since the 14th century. It has some very nice old buildings and is perfect for wandering around and exploring.
Obviously I took some photos, which are here:
