Little German ABC

R is for Rathaus

Rathaus [ˈraːthaos] das - town hall

Our town hall in Wernigerode is a historical building
at the edge of the marktplace.
As in past centuries, there are market days until today.

Similiar words in German and English I found:
rot [roːt] - red
rund [rʊnt] - round
rostig [ˈrɔstɪç] - rusty
Regen [ˈreːgŋ̍] - rain
Regenbogen [ˈreːgŋ̍boːgŋ̍] - rainbow

  3. I do love seeing the old architecture.

  4. It looks like a place where fairy tales come alive . . . .

  5. That is so interesting. I agree it does look like a fairy tale. If you decide to come visit my R pics I am including a link so it doesn't get lost in the bloggyness of my day. http://www.mariasspace.com/2015/11/abc-oh-rats-unlikely-pet-friends.html
