Before I take you on a tour of Frankfurt, there is a post that I  forgot to put in earlier, and which my kids in particular found particularly funny.

One of the small villages in the area around Legoland Deutschland and the small village of Ichenhausen,  is called “Biberberg” and naturally the sight of the town’s sign post produced an outburst of giggles from Little Mr and Kiwi Daughter because it looked similar to the name of the teen pop idol singer Justin Bieber.

Neither of my children are fans of Bieber (and I’m quite pleased about that because personally with all of his drug taking and wild antics on both sides of the law, I don’t find him to be a particularly good role model for young kids).

The conversation, punctuated with lots of giggles, involved  wanting to know if the inhabitants of Biberberg might be called  “Beliebers”.  For  those folks not in the know,   “Beliebers”  is the nickname given to the fans of Justin Bieber.

Either way, even if there are no fans of Justin Bieber in this village, at least the name of their home town gave us big smiles and a lot of giggles.
