oat of arms Koetzting


I promised Elizabeth to visit Kötzting again - she had liked the casino. I am not a gambler, but Elizabeth told me for her it is fun. She is not addicted as I learned. She reserves some money and when it is gone she leaves. The same if she wins.
I can live without this thrill and in Europe there is normally a strict dress code and as a tourist I prefer to be casual dressed when traveling and with not too much luggage.
The call to return to Canada made my promise obsolete.
All over Germany health treatments following the therapy developed by Sebastian Kneipp are popular. These treatments are also available in Bad Kötzting.

We started as usual with a sightseeing tour by car to get an overview. We stopped occasionally to take photos and to allow Elizabeth to get her coffee which she needs to keep her going. After that we collected information at the "Kurverwaltung und Tourist-Information". No events took place on this day.
As I mentioned several times we lost most of our own pictures from Bavaria when our computer was stolen in Canada. I had taken several pictures of the "Weißer Regen" - a little creek.

The "Stadtpfarrkirche" and the chapel "St. Anna" - many thanks to "Konrad Lackerbeck" and Wikipedia

The "Stadtpfarrkirche" is a Catholic church. It is located within a fortification and adjacent to a castle.
Since hundred of years at Pentecost a special pilgrimage of horsemen to the church in Steinbühl takes place. Only men are allowed. This event is based on a legend and attracts many spectators. sometimes up to 1000 horsemen will participate.

We are always interested to see lots of the nature which surrounds the places which we visit.
We followed the received information an drove to near by Ried where we could see on of the oldest linden trees of Germany - the "Wolframslinde". This tree should be over 1000 years old.
The name refers to the medieval minnesinger Wolfram von Eschenbach.
Besides nature I was curious to visit a special museum - a Schnapsmuseum in Bad Kötzting. After a heavy meal Germans love to have a real schnapps which is not the sweet stuff which is offered in Canada. It can be made out of all kind of fruits but also out of certain roots.
A speciality in the Bavarian Forest is a schnapps called "Bärwurz".
We enjoined to learn about this speciality and I did some tasting. I also purchased a bottle. Certainly also a unique gift for friends at home. I never saw any of these specialities anywhere in North America.
