Hiking at Kampenwand…

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.

There are several places to hike in Bavaria and I’m glad that Celia and Jeff planned this into the trip!
