Lower Bavaria is - according to my opinion - similar to the Upper Palatinate still a hidden treasure. Both share the Bavarian Forest. I always loved both districts and especially the Bavarian Forest was one of the major attractions to me.
As a youngster I even traveled with my moped from Nürnberg (Nuremberg) in this area.
Naturally I included Lower Bavaria also in my familiarization program for Bavaria after Elizabeth - my wife - arrived from Canada.
The Bavarian Forest together with the surrounding forests forms a large refuge for wild animals and for nature lovers. You will even find National Parks with wolves, bison, lynx and other animals which are returning to their original habitat. I had also the best blueberry wine in all of my life there.
Lower Bavaria also offers a wide selection of well known health and beauty spas. The river Danube is another attraction where you will find an exciting variety of cities and townships with a long colorful history.
People in Europe love their forests and try to take good care of them. Acid rain is still a problem.
Kids have their fun
Landshut - we missed a big historical event
Many thanks to "Bjoern Schwarz" and Wikipedia
Some of the places were established by the Romans when their Empire spread through wide parts of Europe.
Since the fall of the iron curtain it is easy to travel to the Czech Republic (at least for Europeans) and to Austria, both are now part of the European Union.
Lower Bavaria still is mostly agricultural, even when modern industry like BMW have settled there.
Have you ever seen hops growing? Elizabeth my wife, was amazed. She even tried and loved the beer for which it is used. She also tested salad made of hops.
As in all of Bavaria little and major events and festivals take place all year long. Unfortunately we missed most of them but not at home in Zorneding.
It was fun to learn more about Bavarian culture and history. We participated only in a few of the offered outdoor activities - too much to do with sightseeing.
