Beilngries is another of my favorite little towns in the "Altmühltal" region. The following pictures I have borrowed from local web sites. Many thanks to the web master.
Elizabeth never wears high heels - so she did not have any problems strolling on the cobblestone path along the old town wall with it's towers.
Beilngries has only a population of about 9000. But we were so busy with all the sightseeing that we missed totally to drive to close by Hirschberg to see the castle.
After an leisurely walk, we enjoyed a delicious lunch in a "Gaststätte" (restaurant), then we went to the "Main-Donau Kanal". This is a canal that connects the river Main with the river Donau (Danube). This project has finally been launched and was completed in the last years. Plans to build this canal existed for a long time, but many environmentalists and professional protesters were fighting against it. I am glad that they failed. I like the canal and I think transportation on a boat is probably one of the most environmental friendly methods, if all regulations are obeyed.
If you want to stay for a few days in this area, Beilngries is an excellent central place for many activities.
They are offered year round. Just check with a local tourist agency.
Beilngries - many thanks to "DALIBRI" and Wikipedia
No cars here!
Elizabeth was fascinated by all the churches - one with medieval paintings - and the historical buildings. I would have loved to visit the local toy museum and a technical museum but we were running out of time.
Unfortunately, we came never back to Beilngries. We were called back to Canada and try now to explore my new home country.
Just have a brief look what we did so far here by clicking at the links in the left column.
After the break in were we lost most of our pictures about Bavaria I store back ups on DVDs. Many thanks again to everybody who helped me with images which I was allowed to use.
The "Main-Donau Kanal" seems to be accepted now and even modern cruise boats offer trips on it.
Just watch the brief video below. Certainly a very leisurely way to explore German and some of the surrounding countries.
