Pilatushaus, Oberammergau, Germany


Pilatushaus, Oberammergau, Germany

This was my first time visiting Oberammergau, It was a quite little town with lots of painted buildings like this one. This is known as Luftlmalerei (fresco work) and was completed by local painter Franz Seraph Zwinck (1748-1792). Very beautiful and interesting.  Once every decade about half of the inhabitants of Oberammergau conduct their version of Passion Play. It is a 5 hour open air play with a 3 hour dinner intermission. The last one was back in 2010.

Plansee, Austria


PLANSEE in TYROL, AUSTRIA
JANUARY 2014

So my Garmin routed us around the Plannsee enroute to Linderhof Palace last week and on the way back I decided to get a quick shot of the lake with the mountains in the background. We will definitely go back this Summer for a few days of relaxation.
