Coat of arms Oberstaufen

When we lived in Bavaria I always had a difficult time deciding what should I show Elizabeth.
I knew that she loved "her" mountains and the clean lakes. She could spend a long time in the churches with all their art and craft work. She admired century old cemeteries and she also loved fun.
I wanted to show her more of Bavaria and of Germany. But I wanted to keep her happy and so we did only day trips.


So we decided to explore other parts of Bavaria and Germany later. We did not want to follow the example of Canadian friends who visited us and wanted to see Bavaria, France, Spain, Austria, Switzerland and Northern Italy in few weeks.
For that good reason we proceeded to explore the Allgäu by spending some time in the area around Oberstaufen.
We both enjoyed it. She wanted to know more about another health treatment, called "Schrothkur" which is only offered here in Oberstaufen. It was not only professional interest - she is a registered nurse and is really very health cautious.
As far as what I Know the "Schrothkur" has its name after a doctor with the name of Schroth who lived from 1798 to 1856. He combined the application of water with a diet and an activity plan. I think that nothing can be wrong with that. At least as long as you enjoy it and you see some progress.
Many people take advantage of such a controlled cure in Oberstaufen. Nevertheless I have some serious doubts and would not go for it. I think modern medicine has already brought a proof of extending our expectancy of life beyond that of Dr. Schroth.

I think, we spent a few hours walking around and having coffee. Elizabeth was always attracted by the pedestrian zones where all the stores are and restaurants with tables outside.
I was always looking for shade when the sun was burning down and Elizabeth preferred the bright sun. That caused sometimes a problem.
Naturally, we stopped during our sightseeing tour at different places, Elizabeth always discovered something which was raising her interest but was nothing special to me.
Her interest in churches was also still unbroken and I learned to be patient.
Because it was such a beautiful day we did not spend time to visit local museums , we explored the surroundings instead.
We almost decided to do a test drive on the "Sommerrodelbahn". Here you can do tobogganing in summer or to watch cheese making at the "Obere Hündle-Alpe". But it was getting late and we said we always can come back and do all that.

Unfortunately, we never could come back. We even missed the winter season here in Oberstaufen. I was called back to Canada.
The Allgäu is a favorite place for everybody who loves winter sport. Elizabeth only got a little bit of taste of it immediately after she had arrived in Germany. She wanted to do cross country skiing.
Before leaving the area we had an early dinner which can also be called "Brotzeit", me with only one fresh beer and Elizabeth with coffee.
