When we were in the planning stages of our trip I followed a travel blog called 'Mummy Smiles'. I remember one of her posts about a little town just out of Adelaide called 'Hahndorf'. So when I saw the exit off the Freeway I said hey lets go take a look.
And I LOVED this place!!! It is a small German Town founded in 1839. It was predominately a farming town but is now better known as being a busy little tourist spot. The town is full of old buildings and shops that sell quaint german artifacts, foods and supplies. Having been to the 'real' Germany I can honestly say this place is so authentic it took us right back to our bus tour around Europe!
We visited the town on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed the warm air as we wandered down the streets. I reckon Hahndorf is a must see if you are in the Adelaide region. Great for the whole family.

|Matilda got herself a Babooska doll. Or is it babooshka. Any way you spell it, they are pretty cute and these ones are made and handprinted in germany! no made in china for a change.|
