Sunday Snapshots: The House That Pencils Built

Faber-Castell is a pretty well-known name in Germany. They make pens, pencils, and other art supplies, and they are based in Nürnberg. You can visit their museum, which includes the very lovely old family home, the Faber-Castell Schloss*, just on the outskirts of town.

More information on tours (in German) can be found here…

    • Next visit? PS~ that ‘s Baggers restaurant that we went to in Nbg came up in class yesterday, and apparently it’s closed. My student didn’t know if it was by choice or not though… (her daughter is a chef and worked there awhile back).
