martin - kosice - bratislava, SK

a short trip to slovakia ~ 2016 km in 5 days. my plan for next year? 2017 km :-)

the main reason for my visit? easy:
mother & son :-)
the city of martin:
the view at krivan, the famous hill in mala fatra massif
lake liptovska mara:
the high tatras is in the clouds, what a pity
kosice / kassa / kassau / cassovia:
 the last one is ours :-)
 kosice, coat of arms
recycling in slovakia: beer, wine, spirits :-)
motorest halier / lake tomasovce (near lucenec)
this small fish pond was shallow and thus really warm ... next time i will probably try the a little bit bigger nearby water reservoir divin
bratislava:
bratislava castle ~ bratislavsky hrad

what a nice day in the bavarian apls with my eldest daughter today: our agenda: schliersee village - schliersbergalm 1061m - rohnberg 1257m (schliersberg 1265m is the peak, rohnberg the name of the massive) - lake schliersee (camping)

well, the lake schliersee is the next dot on my bavarian lakes tour ~ the water was soooo cold today :-)

grainau, waxenstein => badersee & eibsee

what a nice 2-days team workshop in grainau at the lake badersee. well, grainau is not only the entry point to germany's highest peak zugspitze. it is also a really nice sleepy village below the waxenstein peak (2277 metres high) and a great starting point for hiking tours to badersee, rosensee, eibsee, höllentalklamm, zugspitze, waxenstein, garmisch-partenkirchen, ... :-)

enjoy few pictures

brünnstein mountain (1619 metres high) + tatzlwurm waterfalls in the beautiful mangfallgebirge

what a nice mother's day hiking in the hills: my 2 daughters and me .. well, i'm a quite good mother(-substitute) if you asked me and better do not ask my daughters :-) ... anyway, i'm probably a better mother than a husband & son together ...

brünnstein is a beautiful mountain in the bavarian alps (mangfallgebirge) close to the village oberaudorf and the city of bayerischzell. we have been at the chapel on the top of the (lower) east peak (1619). the main peak is 1634 metres high but not so often visited because the chapel and the view from there is much more attractive ...

and do you know what? the service personnel at the brünnsteinhaus (1360 m), the cottage right below the peak came from my native slovakia ... well, the people from poor countries often have to serve  people in rich countries, so sad :-(
walking higher & higher ...
the seeonalm and the small lake were still in winter mode 
a tasty lunch break at the brünnsteinhaus (1360 m) below the peak
the small chapel on the top
 gorilla guru on the top of brünnstein too, 1619 m :-)
the mountain plateau
another chapel ~ close to parking place and tour start at rosengasse / oberaudorf
our last stop? the nearby tatzlwurm wasserfall (here the upper waterfall) & restaurant feueriger tatzlwurm
