Coat of arms Marktoberdorf

Elizabeth and I had a wonderful time in Marktoberdorf. To be specific in a beer garden where we met some nice friendly people.
Elizabeth always wanted to see people playing the Alphorn. I told here that this is not only done in Switzerland but also in many villages in the Allgäu. Talking about that the people on our table asked her where we are from and that was the beginning of our talk and another beer.
Unfortunately, we missed it here as well as in other places of Bavaria. In the meantime she experienced it - in a German club in Canada, played by Americans. Small world!

After two beer which are two liters in a beer garden you should not drive.
So we left the car on the parking lot and walked again. We both enjoyed it.

Marktoberdorf Modeon
The "MODEON" in Marktoberdorf
I knew that Marktoberdorf had only a population of about 18 000 and was surprised what we saw and learned on our sightseeing tour.
In the beer garden we learned about a well known cultural center called the "MODEON". There you may have a chance to see a concert, an opera or operetta, ballet, a concert or another event.
You can easily spend days in Marktoberdorf if you want to do explore it and the surroundings and visit all the landmarks and attractions. Just ask for detailed information at the tourist office.

I have installed links to videos taken in the "MODEON" to show you what you can expect there. I thinks it is amazing for such a small town.

A castle and the church St. Martin - many thanks to "Sir Boris" and Wikipedia

I was still a little bit tipsy of the beer. Elizabeth was sober she had mineral water which sometimes costs more than a good brew.
So I was sitting down when she explored the church. I took some pictures but all of them got lost when our computer was stolen - so many thanks again to Wikipedia and all the supporters.
Walking more helped to recover - plus a Coke which I got in a corner store.
However, we never made it to the "MODEON".

Markt Oberdorf motor glider

View from a glider
For our next trip to Marktoberdorf I had planned a surprise for Elizabeth.
I want to treat her with a flight in a glider or in a motorized glider.
The local flying club offers that for a very reasonable price. However the weather must be nice.
As you can a motorized glider looks like a small air plane and does not only rely on thermodynamics. A friend of mine owned one.
The scenery which you will see is breathtaking.
We never came back because we had leave Bavaria - I was called back to Canada.
Maybe you can participate in such an unforgettable trip. Believe me it is really a new experience and you can easily become addicted to it.
I learned to love gliders in Bad Tölz.
