staying in a luxury hotel is usually not included in our daily business. however every now and then you have to treat yourself for a good performance.

it might well be that there are bigger and more splendid bars here in nuremberg. but i'm not sure, if there are more interesting illuminated ones, too.

the del winter game 2013 in nuremberg made history - it was the biggest league match ever in european ice hockey. at the bottom line almost everything was pretty fine in nuremberg today. besides misty weather and far too little beer stalls there was nothing to worry about, except the tight 4 to 3 loss of the ice bears from berlin against the local ice tigers. but considering the quality of the whole event today this could once be ignored as irrelevant.

50.000 spectators, nevertheless i wondered about the great atmosphere in the stadium: despite the fact that probably a lot of them hadn't been at a hockey game before in their lives and also despite the peculiarity that the distance between the playing surface and the ranks was estimated ten times bigger than in an usual hockey arena, almost all the people were clapping, singing and crying and made for a nice atmosphere.
