The WGT 2008: Fourth and final disjunct episode (the steampunk’s steam runs out)

Posted By on 9. Juli 2008

Just a few words to sum up the other things. My wife and me met with friends of ours at the Riquet, which looks like this:

The Riquet (very steampunk)

And is an excellent place to have a really good and enjoyable cup of coffee, the whole setting is quite steampunk, which in this case is incidental, target time-frame is Wilhelminian.

We also went to an excellent tea-place, the Teehaus Kandler near the Thomaskirche. Since tea is the beverage which brings steam back into steampunk it was most enjoyable and the tea was excellent. The varieties they offer are impressive.

Not to forget: Coffee Culture, Brühl 54. Best coffee-to-go in many varieties we had in years.

And of course: The Vivaldi Hotel Leipzig.

We stayed there for the duration and enjoyed it very much. From the delicious breakfast buffet, which was served here:

Vivaldi Hotel Leipzig (our not so steampunk abode)

to the very friendly staff (You were really helpful, thank you!) to our comfortable room with a nice view. We can recommend the Vivaldi Hotel to everyone.

This concludes the traveling steampunk’s tale of th WGT 2008.
