One of the main reasons for coming to Germany was to visit family and see some of my roots. I’ve heard my father, grandfather and grandmother tell me stories about Berchtesgaden and I’ve seen some old photos, but really needed to see it with my own eyes. We ended up staying for one night and two days and I’m sure we’ll be back.
Not only was there a family connection to this area, but it was stunningly beautiful. I don’t think we’ve ever seen skies so blue. It was almost like a scene from some Hollywood movie: crystal clear deep blue skies, a fresh layer of snow, a beautiful traditional Bavarian home complete with three German Shepherds and a horse. It was the perfect scene. And of course the food was unbelievably delicious.
I think it’s best if we let the photos tell the rest of the story.
