You need a lot of patience when you are trekking with a donkey – and it will be rewarded in the end.
here are four important rules when you are on your way to adventure with these headstrong companions. First: At the start, don‘t let the animals just start grazing or else they won‘t go a step further! Second: Talk to them in a friendly and encouraging way. Third: If the donkeys stop, just ignore them. They will start moving again soon. And fourth: Never lose patience and smile away any possible chagrin.
So much for the theory. But how does it look in practice? For starters, very inviting: Düssel (5) and Günter (8) look at the sunny morning with their ears upright and a calm gaze. The two donkeys are great buddies who belong to the host of the Romantik Hotel Markusturm in Rothenburg (Tauber) and are a familiar sight in this place with its medieval Old Town. But they feel most comfortable when they go wandering through nature with hotel guests once a week outside the city walls.
