After returning from frigid England on a Saturday, we were thrilled to have the sun appear in Salzburg. On Sunday, we made the most of our weekend by taking a leisurely stroll in Berchtesgaden, Germany. Sometimes considered the German Bavarian Alps, it is only 30 km South of Salzburg. I was completely enamored by the beauty of the town.
Having done NO homework before arriving, we find a place to park and start our stroll. Within minutes, we run into a Brewery!
But, alas, as I approached, I heard the sounds of an accordion and “Prost!” (German for Cheers)…they didn’t speak a LICK of English but welcomed us in anyhow.
Of course, we couldn’t understand a thing, we just clapped along with everyone else. Outside, Eliot found a treasure.
So, with fresh beer in our bellies, we continued on in the beautiful sunshine. All stores are closed on Sunday, but we still found quite a few people out and about, as well as an Italian cafe…
We could see streets and paths ahead so we knew there were trails to be had.
Up, up, up.
Actually, I think they may have been full stations of the cross, Eliot stops to inspect.
Onto more scenery-type views:
