Southern Germany Sampler: Day 5 — Lunch with Monks, Then Home to Regensburg


View Larger Map

We got up on time at the Hotel Alte Post in Oberammergau and the fog coming out of the mountains was too much for me to resist.

After driving straight through downtown Munich — isn’t there a better way to do this!? — we arrived at Weltenburg near Kelheim about two hours later. It was time for some lunch and a little exercise, hiking up the hill to the Roman fortress ruins and checking out the chapel at the monastery.

    I know what you mean with traveling north from Oberammergau. Especially since they DO have a relatively nice city bypass if you are traveling up from the southeast from Salzburg. We were there with my parents this summer and driving down was a nightmare and driving back up was a nightmare.

    If you ever travel to Italy via Zurich, it is even worse. You end up traveling surface streets through downtown Zurich, by the central firehouse/hospital and the train station before getting back on an autobahn traveling south. Catastrophe.

    We are doing a similar trip soon and I remembered your post for recs. I checked out Hotel Alte Post and it looked perfect! They even had a Familienzimmer that fits all of us with 2 separate rooms! Unfortunately, they are closed until July 6th! Back to the drawing board… :)
