Photos – The Bavarian Alps
Spectacular natural surroundings and unique architecture make the Bavarian Alps another of Europe’s most beautiful places.
In June 2009 nine of the 15 members of our Salzkammergut Experience group continued for a second week in the Bavarian Alps of Germany, about a three hour drive from our base in Austria. It was great fun to spend a second week together, and having three young people in the group added a positive energy. Together we ascended mountains, explored magnificent castles, and enjoyed hearty German food. The highlight of the week was our trip by train and cable car to the top of the Zugspitze (9718 feet) where we lunched in the sunshine looking out on rocky mountain tops and lots of snow.
