more mittenwald pics

Per request of MULLMAN, I have resized some pics from the top of the mountain in Mittenwald (Day 2). This definitely was one of the highlights of the trip so far. The views are amazing and the day was beautiful, it was about 50degrees up top, not cold, (reminds me of spring skiing in the Rockies). If you go, check the weather and try to make plans for a day with sunshine as we did.

Day 5 Pics

DAY 5…we are staying with my wife’s aunt who lives here in a small town close to Frankfurt. On day 5 we went to the town of Rudesheim, right next to the Rhein river. It is a charming small town with the typical narrow cobblestone streets and many stores. The highlight of the day was a 2 hour cruise on the Rhein river from Rudesheim to Loreley. This cruise was spectacular….there were many, many castles along the way (at least 10) small towns and vineyards. We went via car to the top of a hill to the Loreley statue and then atop another hill to the Germania monument, both had incredible views of the river.
