Saturday we met up with the tour my parents were on, and had dinner with my aunts and uncle in Alzey. The next day we brought my parents back to Freising and stopped for a walk around Nördlingen on the way home. The town is notable for still having its medieval defense wall still intact,… Continue reading Photopost: Nördlingen
On a walk last week I popped into a local cemetery to look at the flowers–Freisingers take maintaining and decorating their family gravesites very seriously–and noticed the three main components of Easter in the Church were represented in the grave markers. Indeed.
And now some pictures from a recent Sunday trip to the 2016 Bayerische Landesausstellung, “Bier in Bayern” in Aldersbach. This was a fabulous exhibition put on by the Haus der Bayerischen Geschichte, a state historical agency that holds exhibitions around the state. The hosts for this exhibition were the former Cisternian kloister, now a parish… Continue reading Ausflug: Bier in Bayern
Not a Freising Freitag, but I just wanted to share something. We met this nice couple earlier this month on a day trip to an exhibition about the history of beer in Bavaria. Their noses are metal cans. I like them. (I’m kind of forgetting how to write in English. Also I’m worried that I’m… Continue reading Photo Post: Brautpaar
Finally there’s some nice weather in Bavaria. Sunday we took a drive down the Deutsche Hopfenstraße. The hops harvest is generally completed; the wires are empty but the hops cones are on their way to bring joy to millions around the world. Our goal was Abensberg, for a tour of Brauerei zum Kuchlbauer, a brewery… Continue reading Brauerei zum Kuchlbauer
Last Friday, after months of saying, “Hey, I should ride into town with Roland some morning and use the U-Bahn to explore while he’s at work” I finally did. My destination was the Lenbachhaus, which owns the world’s largest collection of work by Der Blaue Reiter, a group of early-20th century painters who worked mostly… Continue reading Photo Post: Cats of Munich
Occasionally when the weather is just right, in the midafternoon I can see the Alps as I walk to school.
The usual apologies for silence–laptop had a Blue Screen of Death at the beginning of January after a driver update and it took awhile to get sorted out. Seems to be OK now; many photos to catch up on. Last Sunday we took a drive over to Landsberg am Lech, west of Munich, to see… Continue reading Sunday Excursion: Landsberg am Lech
More soaking rain on the day we went to München, so I didn’t have my camera out at all. Please enjoy some bad phone pictures and a couple of guest photos. We started at the main market at the Marienplatz and enjoyed a mug of Glühwein while we waited for the famous Glockenspiel (link contains… Continue reading Christkindlmärkte: München
The theme for my parents’ visit was “Christmas Markets” and now I will be sharing some photos. On the first Saturday of their visit, we went up the road a bit to Ingolstadt. Overnight there was snow, and it fairly quickly turned to a soaking rain, but that was no reason not to enjoy a… Continue reading Christkindlmarkt: Ingolstadt
