fugger city weissenhorn in swabia (bavaria BY)

weissenhorn / weißenhorn is the #2 fugger city in germany (after augsburg). i really liked this beautiful small city and its market square brewery barfüßre in the bavarian disrict schwaben / swabia. unlike today, swabia was a huge historic territory in medieval southwest germany before.

... coming soon ...

alpspitz 1575 m ~ allgäu

what a nice and also a quite easy hiking tour to the alpspitz in the allgäuer alps. allgäu is beautiful, you know? but please do not muddle up the alpspitz 1575m with alpspitze 2628 ma really high moutain in the wetterstein massif close to garmisch-partenkirchen 😃

well, my wife took part in a shaman retreat seminar in altenmünster and i caught the chance to visit the nearby hills in the allgäuer alpen, you see? i've started in nesselwang, but the picturesque village at the picture below is oy-mittelberg. a really strange name for a village in germany, isn't it? 😆

enjoy few pictures:

schwaben (bayern, BY) - altenmünster, violau, eichholzsee

what a strange shaman retreat what my wife planned for her and partly for me as i joined the (lakota indian style) sweat lodge sessions in the evenings 😇. the seminar took place in the maria ward house in altenmünster in the bavarian disrict schwaben / swabia. unlike today, swabia was a huge historic territory in medieval southwest germany before.

well, i took the chance to visit the surrounding country:

altenmünster
