Ensign Reit im Winkl

After you have seen Reit im Winkl and the surroundings you will understand why I had to bring Elizabeth to this village, situated close to the Austrian border. It is beautiful here. She was so happy and made many notes in her diary. When speaking to her parents in Canada after our return home, I am sure she made them envious about our little day sojourn to Reit im Winkl.
We visited this village both in winter and summer, with summer being my personal favorite. Elizabeth enjoyed this season also (a good cold-weather Canadian she isn't).

Clean and friendly to the environment.

As you can see a visit in summer is exciting. Especially after you have found a parking lot. If you get tired from too much walking, use the "public transportation" shown on the first picture on the top.
The vehicle is in compliance with the local bylaws and is equipped with a catalytic converter which means the driver collects all "exhaust products" or droppings of his power train and puts it with a shovel in an airtight container.

Skiing at Reit im Winkl
Why not?
However, when she saw all the winter activities, she suggested "We take up skiing and ice skating."
Obviously, you can take a Canadian out of cold weather but you can't take cold weather out of a Canadian. Unfortunately when we were there, I didn't know that you can rent a snow sled at the "Hindenburghütte" and race down on one of the longest sled trails in the Bavarian Alps. (approximately 4 km or 2.5 miles long) In my younger days I always was really good on a sled. Now, and a few pounds later I have to review the situation.
Curling is also a popular sport and one which would be more suitable for me.

Reit im Winkl is world famous for winter sports and after a long and enjoyable day on the slopes it is traditional to relax around a blazing fire, with both friends and strangers alike.
A typical Bavarian attraction are the races with horse drawn sleds. Elizabeth wouldn't believe her eyes when she saw this for the first time. The most famous ones take place right here in Reit im Winkl and in Schleching.
All Creatures Great and Small. This best describes Elizabeth's loves of all animals, especially with the number of deer she saw roaming freely in the forests of Germany.
Particularly at night you must drive very carefully and be always on the alert. Deer can suddenly crosses the road. As in Canada, there are road side signs to make the driver aware of deer crossings.
The over population of deer in Germany's forests has also proofed to be a problem and must be monitored and controlled. Elizabeth - a real animal lover - was impressed how we feed our deer during the harsh winters to avoid starvation and to save our little trees of being eaten out of desperation.
Deer feeding is not only a regular occurrence, it is also a tourist attraction and the amateur photographers delight. Under normal circumstances the deer is very shy and timid but hunger obviously is stronger and the animals crowd around these feeding stations even with the scent of humans in the air.
