We took the S-Bahn (smaller train) to Kampenwand. It is a ski resort in the winter and a hiking spot in summer. There is a gondola to take you up the side of the mountain.
You can hike to the top of the rocks, but we didn’t. We did hike to the Biergarten that is very near there.
It wasn’t a hard hike.
Along the way we watched para gliders taking off. There were lots of them flying around.
There were cows! Actually, there are a lot of cows in Bavaria and they look somehow different from the cows I’m used to seeing.
There is a small church…
From this spot you can see another trail that takes you to a different high spot that overlooks the valley below. We decided to hike down and then up that little trail that you see in the next photo.
Steve and I are still working on perfecting our selfies :-).
There are several places to hike in Bavaria and I’m so glad that we are on this trip!
America has many types of cattle, too. Look up Jerseys and Guernseys. Holstein (black and white spotted) are common here. Then, there are beef cattle. And mixed breeds. Jerseys provide more cream per gallon, I think.
Like sewing machines, we have types for different specialties. 😃
It’s a wonderful world!!
It’s funny: I love dairy products and beef, but I’ve never been a lover of cows. They kind of scare me, probably because I’ve not spent time close to cows. I think what got my attention most about the cows in Germany were their colors, and the fact that they looked so pleasant, complacent even :-).
The Holstein cows mentioned above originate from Germany, in fact, the come from the most northern part of Germany, bordering on Denmark and it is named Schleswig-Holstein. I know that because I am from there. But now I live in Bavaria. You seemed to have had a pleasant trip. Quite different from what most Americans do. Congrats. Birgitt
You live in a beautiful part of the world, Birgitt. I suspect it’s pretty cold in winter, but still beautiful. And you are correct—we did have a great trip! That was because our DIL, Celia, planned it so well. She and Jeff have been to many of the places we visited which helped her to plan this trip.
