ensign Tegernsee

It was always a nice afternoon's tour with my motor bike to go to the Tegernsee. It is a leisurely trip around the entire lake.
Elizabeth and I did the same, but not on a motor cycle.
All the villages are very pretty and each of them offers spectacular sights.
In the town of Tegernsee I showed Elizabeth the place where a farewell party was given before I left for Canada the first time. We enjoyed an excellent dinner and good beer at the same place called "Bräustüberl".

You can sit outside or in the dining room

At this time i preferred to sit outside because smoking was still allowed almost everywhere and Elizabeth had just stopped this bad habit.
In above picture you can still see the ashtrays on the tables.
Whenever I told the local people they should to the same as what Canada was doing to ban it in restaurants they looked at me like to an alien from outer space.
It took Germany a long time to introduce the required laws.

This picture was taken after we had the dinner and our beer

You can see below this place is busy at any season.

We did some shopping because Elizabeth needed new sandals. We were hearing all the different languages of the many tourists and Elizabeth was always happy when she met an English speaking person.
I still do the same when I hear German in Canada!
Unfortunately we did not join a boat tour on lake Tegernsee.

We missed to join this tour

Elizabeth always loved to see old Bavarian cemeteries and churches. I had to translate what was written on the grave stones. One thing that impressed her was the condition of the cemeteries. Each individual grave was immaculately maintained. It was obvious that flowers and shrubbery had been lovingly placed on each grave side. She was always overwhelmed and awed by the interior of many churches. Here we have visited the "Klosterkirche".

Tegernsee with the "Wallberg" mountain - many thanks to "Luidger" and Wikipedia

We also never went on top of the mountain "Wallberg". Friends recommended that we take the cable lift that starts in Rottach-Egern.

During our last visit we did not miss to explore the "Olav Gulbransson" museum. The Norwegian artist, painter and cartoonist lived most of his life in Tegernsee. He died in 1958 at the age of 86.
Gulbransson became very famous by his work as an editor of the satirical magazine "Simplicissimus" at the beginning of the 20th. century. He also worked for Norwegian magazines.
If you understand German, you certainly will enjoy going through his work.
Also on display are his paintings.
Check the Internet for more information in English. I only could copy them and I do not want to do that.
