Weekends often have us out exploring the furthest reaches of our city, Munich. Every new destination has hidden gems and we are overcome with delight when we discover something for the first time. I'm hard pressed to carry my camera with me all of the time because I know that just around the next bend there will be a perfect photo opportunity for me. Such was the case this past weekend when we decided to head off to Herrsching, a town about 20 southwest of Munich.
The decorated tower above was in Herrsching, next to the stream that feeds into the Ammersee (lake). Although I'm fairly certain it is not used today, I had to marvel at the decorative painting that was used to flank the doors and stretch around the tower.
A group of musicians appeared in the midst of a sea of people out enjoying the afternoon sun after eating and drinking lakeside in the local beergarden. This happens quite spontaneusly as long as the weather permits. Sunday afternoon concerts at the beergarden are casual, joyous occassions for people of every age.
