watzmannhaus 1930 m + BGL
what a nice birthday gift have i got from my eldest daughter: an overnight stay at one of the 25 mountain cottages run by german alpine association (DAV). we have chosen to stay at the watzmannhaus (1930 m over the sea level) in the berchtesgaden area in the most south-east part of germany. why? well, that's the area where i lived some time as refugee 30 years ago (the refugee camp shanties are still there). a beautiful area which i like so much and an area i wanted to present to my daughter as nice as possible.
