The drive was beautiuful with many rolliing green hills and valleys with bridges across little streams.
A short distance down the road we entered a farming village of Wahlwinkel,near
Back to the rolling hills with idyllic townships and rad barns and even a castle keep.
There were many medieval buildings in the area, even a former monastery like in Mullberg, a town mentioned as far back as 1230. There has been many excavations of Slavic settlements, here. With the many hills around, its easy to see why this area was chosen for settlement as it would have been a little easier to protect against invaders.
If we had the time, I would have easily stopped at any of these sites to explore. The non touristy Germany that is not usually seen would have been a treat. A road trip of non touristy villages, I'll have to work on that one.
As the km sign shows, though, we had many kilometes left to go but, atleast the view was interesting.
