Campo di Oro, Germany
While visiting this Black Forrest mecca, be sure to stay for the community auction.
On the fifth Saturday of every month, you can be sure to walk away with a prize for mere pennies.
At a typical auction, you can find goods such as:
[li]the petrified foot of Hans.[/li][li]a beautiful urn filled with cigar ash.[/li][li]a collection of humus spoons, depicting the rise and fall of the ottoman empire.[/li][li] a hand carved statue of Bernie Lazlox.[/li][/ul]
Really, you’ll just never know what you will find!
The picturesque auction house is built in the traditonal bavarian adobe style. There are plenty of photo ops by the statue of the golden eel, which is believed to bring you good luck when you rub its tongue.
While in Campo di Oro, be sure to stay at the Inn of the Schmaltendeinggers. They serve their world famous fried pickled udders for dinner - but don’t be late. These crispy golden treats disapear fast!
The rooms are decorated in a Miami Vice theme, complete with lifesize cardboard cut-outs of Crockett and Tubbs in every room. The ‘cocaine’ coffee table is sure to delight all! truly, it is a unforgetable site.
Fall of 2003 will bring the opening of the smuggler’s playland. Be sure to make reservations early. This is a guaranteed sell out.
Campo di Oro is fun for all ages.
