I guess this is my season to visit the Germanic side of life. After we left Amsterdam, we flew into Munich and then took a train down to the lake area of Tegernsee.

We stayed at a luxious spa resort with a commnding view of the lake.

Unfortunately our weather was not the best. Luckily the hotel had an indoor heated, mineral pool that was divine for relaxation and a little exercise. The food at this hotel was fantastic, and if ever you are in the area, I highly recommend it.
Das Tegernsee

The area reminds me a bit of the Italian lakes, particularly Lugano.  There are boats that ferry passangers across the lake and to all of the charming towns that cling to the edges of the lake.

The archictecture was "Heidi" like; balconies, flowers in the windows.

Even though the weather was cool, cloudy and often rainy, we tried to eat out on the terraces whenever possible.  We noticed the sheepskin blankets carefully placed to make sure the patrons did not freeze their butts off.

Of course there were lovely desserts and pretzels wherever we went.
