Pictures from a Bus: Ramsau and Hintersee

The correct name is actually Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden; there is also a town called Ramsau in Austria. Anyway, on the last day of 2015 the weather was sunny but very cold; Lars and I liked to do some exploring and photographing, but without freezing to death. So, we took a free bus to Ramsau and Hintersee and took pictures of the magnificent landscapes … in the bus.

The road towards Ramsau is surrounded by mountains:

Ramsau is a charming small town, which is known for its picturesque church, built in the 16th century:

The tower of the church is shaped like an onion, which is common in this area. A few kilometres further is the Hintersee, a small lake. Part of it was frozen and people were skating on it:

We had plans to do some more sightseeing the next day, but the weather changed; temperatures went up and it rained a lot. Not exactly very tempting to go outside and take pictures.

Luckily, things were different in Prague!

      Have you ever been in Europa? We learn as long as we live, and hope for you, you can travel a bit. We see many places, of which we have heard about, but never seen, and places we find accidentally. We love Europa, and now we can see the big part of its beauties. I have never been out of this continent, Ingrid has been in America and a couple of other countries
      We thank you for your posting, which we like very much, and we are happy that you follow us on our trips. Enjoy it and we will keep sending new postings and pictures.

    No, I have never been there. If money is ever available – I’d visit. But in the meantime, I’ll enjoy your posts. So many places draw my attention! I thank you for taking the time.
