We rented a car to drive down to this corner of southeast Germany, in the Bavarian Alps near the Austrian border. Here we are on the autobahn, getting dusted by every Mercedes, BMW, and Volkswagen on the road.
We stayed in Berchtesgaden, which was pretty. One of the things we did while we were there was hike out to Lake Königssee and take a boat across the lake. Here is B on the path.Some of the tourist dreck for sale by the lake included Beaver ointment. Good for what ails you.Here are folks waiting by the lake for their boat.
The lake is surrounded by mountains. The boatmen stop in the middle and play a few bars on the trumpet, and you can hear the music echoing over and over again.
The boat stops at a little lakeside area where you can have some beer and bratwurst.On the walk back we stopped for a beer. In Germany, what else?
