Beautiful experiences

An interview with Jürgen Wünschenmeyer

Mr. Wünschenmeyer, how did you feel as a little boy all alone on the bus to Augsburg?

Great. My mother handed me over to the bus driver Charly Brown in Feuchtwangen. She told him that my grandmother would be waiting for me in Augsburg with her old German shepherd dog. I was allowed to sit in the front and felt like the »King of the Road«. From then on, I took the bus to my grandma almost every year.

Apparently the beginning of a great passion. Because you were already working as a bus attendant at the age of 16.

It was the best summer job ever. I told the bus passengers in German and English about the sights along the Romantic Road. It was good for self-confidence and good for general knowledge. I then gave a presentation on the Danube in the advanced English course, with a lot of background knowledge from my time as a tour guide. Even my teachers, who didn't know me as a model student, were amazed.

You also dedicated your business administration diploma thesis to the Romantic Road

When I was studying in Ravensburg, I chose to focus on tourism. My thesis was a guidebook for tour guides. It served as a guide for bus attendants on the Romantic Road for many years, in condensed form of course.
