hell valley canyon (höllentalklamm) ~ bavarian alps

what a nice hiking tour through the hell valley canyon (höllentalklamm) in the bavarian alps close to grainau and hammersbach. this time we went through the canyon up to the cottage höllentalangerhütte (1387 m). just the zugspitze was not at our agenda, it would be another 5-6 hours hiking, i think ... and i will probably never go up to the zugspitze peak by foot, it would simply be too much for me :-)

fürth, franconia

when we visit friends in cadolzburg (franconia), we usually enjoy the chance to stop by at some interesting places in the area or somewhere on our way from munich => thus we have already seen nuremberg, schwabachweltenburg monastery, berching, beilngries and its nearby lake pfraundorfer see, ingolstadt, lake rothsee, eichstätt, ... but don't worry, there are still many, many nice places around :-)

this time we joined the oktoberfest - like fun fair michaelis-kirchweih in furth / franconia.

fürth, grüner markt ~ we have seen many timber-framed houses (fachwerk) in fürth, but it was too late and too dark for photographing, so enjoy this beautiful picture found at wikipedia commons (free to use :-) from following source url:
good-bye fürth, good-bye franconia
