Bike Touring Highlight
For a good two minutes, on October 22, 1992, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip and Lord Mayor Hinrich Lehmann-Grube and wife Ursula appear on the balcony of the Old Town Hall in Leipzig. LVZ prints the first colored title photo in its history the next day. (Follows)
Accompanied by the couple Biedenkopf, Elizabeth II traveled from Dresden by train to Leipzig.
And I myself by bike "accidentally" through the open police cordon at Ranstädter Tor not to miss this event. When the convoy with its Rolls Royce shot past me.

Ulrich Trampler served tea for the British Queen in the Old Town Hall in 1992 - and suddenly she stood in stockings in front of him.
For the Leipzig restaurateur that Thursday was almost 23 years ago, a highlight in his professional life: He served her majesty tea in the separee. Trampler was at that time the first restaurant manager in the Hotel Astoria. The Astoria was chosen to host the monarch in the Old Town Hall.
In the back country, a room was set up for the Queen, her husband Prince Philip, and two court ladies. Ulrich Trampler was also ordered into it: with a jug of Darjeeling tea - golden yellow he had to be - from Meissen porcelain and with an etagère full of petit fours.
He barely trusted his eyes when he saw: "She came from the balcony, pushed her pumps off her feet and stood in stockings in front of me. So human. "Prince Philip, who noted the waiter's astonishment, declared in perfect German," Your Majesty's feet hurt. "
