In Frauenau you should visit the local "Glasmuseum" (glass museum). It shows the history of glass which dates back approximately 2500 years. You will find samples from Egypt, Roman glasses and naturally many samples from medieval times and other periods up to modern day.
We were surprised that this little village (population less than 3000) has such a place. Later we made similar experiences in Newfoundland-Labrador.
The Bavarian Forest is still well known for its glass industry and we visited during our sightseeing tours many places where gals blowing was demonstrated. Sometime you were even allowed to try it. I believe everybody who visited such a place purchased at least one souvenir.
Sample from Egypt
Frauenau is located on the so called "Glasstraße" (glass route) and has besides the museum some well know glass factories. Use the link below to a video.
The best know of the surrounding mountains is the "Große Rachel".

We had an excellent lunch in a Gasthof which also offered hotel rooms and apartments. Elizabeth - still a meat eater had venison, I selected again one of my favorites cordon bleu. Don't be afraid to try liver dumplings soup - it is delicious. Elizabeth ordered some times two dishes of it and nothing else.
During lunch we asked about the many dead pine trees we had seen. I was told that acid rain and a bug called Borkenkäfer (bark beetle) are the reason for that. Now I learned that other trees are replacing partly the pine trees. I hope that will work! A Bavarian Forest without living trees would be a disaster.

This was the only church which we had visited.
A drinking water reservoir - many thanks to "MdE (de)" and Wikipedia
At first we thought this a lake, but we learned immediately that dam had been built to create an urgently needed reservoir for drinking water. Not only for tiny little Frauenau but for many surrounding regions.
To learn more about Frauenau watch the second video - no talking just music.
