Oberammergau, Germany

After we left Tel Aviv on Friday, we landed in Frankfurt and drove to Oberamigau, Germany in the Southern Tyrolian region of the country. How beautiful it is here. It is about 40 degrees in the day and below freezing here at night. Very cold but beautiful. Our first day here we awoke to snow. I think it was 80 degrees in Houston:-) 

Here are a few photos from this area...

The cathedral at Etal... Or, the domes of the cathedral. Quite the baroque edifice. 

Mikki in Etal... It was miserably cold in the cathedral. It would be a very short church service:-)

The church tower next door to our hotel here in Oberamigau. The bells ring starting at 6:00 a.m. On Saturday morning, the bells rang 80 times straight at 7:00 a.m. I enquired and found out that there was a funeral that day for an elderly man. Such a neat tribute. 

I love the lace curtains in Germany and Switzerland. 

Mikki looking at a store window yesterday.

Unless you were here to witness the painting on the stores and hotels, you just can't believe them. Here are a couple. 

This is a hotel where we had dinner a couple nights. 

Check out the scene on the side of this hotel.

Nice doorway.

A little village halfway between Linderhof, King Ludwig's hunting lodge and Oberamigau. Quite beautiful. 

In the forest at Linderhof.

King Ludwig's small church next to Linderhof.

Mikki in Tinney, a local's restaurant. We had Schweinbrauten, a potato dumpling and purple cabbage.. wow!
