Elizabeth could never get enough of seeing the Bavarian houses with their balconies and with the window boxes overflowing with mainly red geraniums which cascaded down the house walls.
Often the houses were also painted with murals.
Our tour around the Tegernsee included especially for that reason Rottach-Egern. I also wanted to drive the "Wallbergstraße" a toll road up to the "Berggasthaus-Café". I drove this road several times with my motor bike and knew that Elizabeth would love the brief tour.

I was right - she enjoyed it. She was surprised when she saw many para gliders in the sky. They almost looked like big birds and some of them were even rising and nor coming down.

Back in Rottach-Egern we did the normal sightseeing. Churches and cemeteries were still some of the main attractions for Elizabeth.
Even when the church looked simple from the outside the interior was always a surprise for her.

We also walked along the shore line and watched both sail boats and wind surfers. I explained to her that private gas powered motor boats are not allowed on any lakes in Bavaria because of the pollution and the hazard to swimmers.
Fatal accidents involving swimmers in the Mediterranean Sea have been repeatedly reported. Boaters wanting to impress little kids and young girls with the power of their boats have been the cause of many of these mishaps. For that reason you will also not see water skiers behind boats.
Whenever we were lucky, we could listen to a "Kurkonzert" (a concert). This is a concert with traditional and classical music, no rock and roll, rap etc. If you enjoy that kind of music, you must go in a disco or switch on your radio.
The "Schwimmbad" (public pool) in Rottach-Egern
We did not visit above public pool. We went swimming in the lake. But you and your kids may prefer the pool, the water slides and all the other facilities at the "Schwimmbad" in Rottach Egern .
Elizabeth loves the sun and wanted to get a tan. She also told me that brown fat looks better than white fat, therefore I should join her in the sun. I responded with a Spanish saying that only donkeys and foreigners will stay in the sun.
Elizabeth and I had only one winter to explore Bavaria in winter. Despite the fact that she does not like any low temperatures she loved it.
The area around the Tegernsee was only one of her favorite winter destinations.
Elizabeth sounded like a broken record always suggestion that we should purchase cross country ski equipment whenever we saw people taking advantage of the cross country trails. The farmers allowed the community to clear trails for the skiers.
Because of her knee injury Elizabeth thought that this type of skiing would be more appropriate than down hill skiing. Down hill skiing and skating are also very popular winter sports in Upper Bavaria.
Winter at the Tegernsee
A few years ago I was attending a party in the evening with colleagues at a little "Gasthof" (restaurant) in the Tegernsee area. We all had to take flashlights and sleds with us. Since the party place was on a mountain, we left the cars behind us and walked. Around midnight, we cavorted down the mountain's empty road on the sleds. Our sobriety was questionable. I did this in my younger days but would not mind to do the last part again.
