We passed through this region very often. We visited Landsberg, the Ammersee and a famous medieval event in Kaltenberg. It is called the Kaltenberg Knights' Tournament.
In Dießen you can see a permanent exhibition that is dedicated to the famous German composer Carl Orff (1895-1982) who lived there for many years. I loved to see his "Carmina Burana" and the "Bernauerin" on German TV.
Dießen is nicely located at the banks of the Ammersee and you can combine the visit of the exhibition with sightseeing and relaxing.

Utting was another place which we visited frequently. Memories came back to the time when I was her as a teenager with my moped. But everything had changed.
Now there was a "Hochseilgarten Ammersee" which is an attraction for everybody - including children - who enjoy climbing in a save environment. However, we preferred to be on the lake in the "Strandbad".
The castle in Hurlach - many thanks to "Richard Mayer" and Wikipedia
We drove many side roads and discovered north of Landsberg in Hurlach this castle which was not open to the public because it is still used by a Christian organization.
Vilgertshofen pilgrimage church "Mariä Schmerzen" - many thanks to "AThurner" and Wikipedia
Please stop at tourist offices when you travel through this region. There is still so much to discover which we missed.
This pilgrimage church in Vilgertshofen raised Elizabeth's interest and I had to stop.
A local man told us that there is still every year a so called "silent procession". It sounded to me almost like an event similar to the passions play in Oberammergau because local people participate in authentic looking costumes.
Many thanks again to Wikipedia who provided all the pictures - mine are gone with the stolen computer.
