we are quite often in lower bavaria, you know? in june, i hiked to the top of the grosser rachel mountain (1,453m above sea level) in the NP bavarian forest (aka bayerischer wald, böhmerwald, sumava). unfortunately, i could not see the lake rachelsee. why not? well, the lake was from the opposite site of the mountain as my parked car and i did not have had time (and neither the power) for and additional walk for 1 hour to the lake and next hour back .... this time i knew better from which site to access the gr. rachel area 😃
in the uckermark, they have ostriches + kangaroos, but in the bavarian forests there are strange beings too, my dears! deer, ferrets, galloways and other cows, koi carps, humans, unicorns, ducks ... much nicer and much more interesting than a zoo, wouldn't you say?
