Travelog for: Zipfelchen

Kellinghusen, Germany - 6th August 2010

By: babyamy

I'm the little Zipfelchen, the little sister of Katrin's wild TVs dideldum, dideldei, Lane, Lene and Line. When they started their journey in May 2010 I was too young to leave home.
But since I haven't heard anything from them I have have decided to start my own journey around the world.
My first host is a big fan of my siblings and is really looking forward to meet me. That's why I will crawl into my envelope now and travel to her as soon as possible.

Bruchsal, Germany - 10th August 2010

By: fam-united

Hi Mum,

I just arrived at fam-united's home. I made her smile at once
:) She seems to really love me. Also her daughter said: "Cool!" when she saw me and smiled. I'm sure, I will have a great time. Today we have to bake two cakes and maybe do some ironing, too. It's nice weather, so I hope to get the chance for some outside photos, too.

I will go and talk with her other toyvoyager guests now.

Take care

It's my host's birthday. We helped to prepare things for the guests, which came to have breakfast with us, but we toyvoyagers were allowed to eat first before the guests arrived.



For lunch we had some Italian kind of soup and this interesting bread rolls.

Nürnberg, Germany - 12th August 2010

By: fam-united

Finally it's Thursday morning and we drove to our hotel in the Bavarian Forest. On our way there we stopped at the Railway museum in Nuremberg – Nürnberg in German. It was raining heavily, when we arrived there. Many other people had the same idea and so we had to stay in a queue outside in the rain for several minutes until it was our turn to pay the tickets. We only looked at the big trains, though, because our hosts already have seen the other rooms of exhibitions and said, that it is just too crowded today. We are sorry for the bad photos, but the light made taking photos really difficult.

King Ludwig's royal train.



The Saxonia was the first operational locomotive built in Germany in 1838.


Then we went to the old signal tower. We looked at some more locomotives, while it was raining even more heavily than before.

Walhalla, Donaustauf, Germany - 12th August 2010

By: fam-united

The Walhalla is a hall of fame  that honors laudable and distinguished Germans, famous personalities in German history — politicians, sovereigns, scientists and artists of the German tongue. The hall is housed in a neo-classical building above the Danube River, east of Regensburg, in Bavaria, Germany.

The Walhalla was conceived in 1807 by Crown Prince Ludwig, who built it upon ascending the throne of Bavaria as King Ludwig I. Construction took place between 1830 and 1842, under the supervision of architect Leo von Klenze.

The Walhalla displays some 65 plaques and 130 busts of persons, covering 2,000 years of history — the earliest person honored is Arminius, victor at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest (9 CE).




We took a photo of the Walhalla from the far too, wanted to get the whole building on it. We tried to get a closer view, but haven't been really successful.

Bad Kötzting, Germany - 13th August 2010

By: fam-united

The weather is rather bad - a lot of rain is falling down on us. So at first we had to decide, what to do with this day. Then our hosts remembered, that they wanted to visit a Bärwurzerei and that they could do so on a day like this. We drove to Bad Kötzting. Bärwurz - baldmoney- is an ornamental plant and they use it to make Schnaps - hard liquor-  out of it. Our hosts told us, that they don't like to drink it, but they wanted to buy some other Schnaps and liquor.

At first we read about the Bärwurz.


and took a look at some other plants, which they use for Schnaps and Likör.


The parish church Maria Himmelfahrt is the centre of the defence buildings with exterior circular wall, moat and interior ring. The church was mentioned in a pope certificate in 1179, extented in 1737/38. Inside it is baroque with a high altar from 1771 and pulpit from 1730.




Bad Kötzting is a nice city with many beautiful houses.

Engelsdorf, Rattenberg, Germany - 13th August 2010

By: fam-united

Back in the hotel again we took a look at the things we bought. If you see this here, you could think, that our hosts are a lot into alcohol, but they told us, that it is a famous region for theses Schnaps and liquor and also for beer, which we bought on our way back to the hotel.

Rauhbühl - Viechtach, Germany - 14th August 2010

By: fam-united

My hosts found an interesting place to visit for today: Die gläserne Scheune - the glass barn. It is a barn, which Rudolf Schmidt and his family bought to make it a really special place. The inside walls of the barn are glass and he and other family members painted on the glass. You can see different stories on the glass:
about the "Mühlhiasl"
about Saint Francis and more.
It is a really fascinating place and we can all recommend to go there, when you visit the Bavarian Forest and are close to Viechtach.


This trunk on the ball shows the lies that weigh on the world, they make the world fall apart.



You can see those wayside crosses very often, when you drive through the Bavarian Forest.


This one is only painted with pencil.


Here's a painting about Mühlhiasl.

At last we visited the Kristallmuseum - crystal museum in Viechtach.

Arnbruck, Germany - 14th August 2010

By: fam-united

Then we drove to Arnbruck to visit the Weinfurtner Glasdorf. Arnbruck is a city next to the Glasstraße - glass street - where still glassblowing is very important.
Weinfurtner has a really nice garden with glass decorations.

Maibrunn, Germany - 14th August 2010

By: fam-united

At last we drove to Maibrunn, because we read, that you can have a good view over the landscape from the WaldWipfelWeg - treetop way. I felt a bit scared, because the way swings and made me feel dizzy. I felt so dizzy, that we forgot to take a photo of the landscape.:(




Under the way there are stations to learn more about nature - here coats of different animals.

Großer Arber, Germany - 15th August 2010

By: fam-united

Our real destination was to go on top of the Großer Arber - great Arber. Großer Arber (German for Great Arber, Czech: Velký Javor) is the highest peak of the Bavarian-Bohemian-mountain ridge, with an elevation of 1,456 metres (4,777 ft). Although geographically belonging to the Bohemian Forest, it is often referred to as "King of the Bavarian Forest". Just enjoy the views:)







View to one of the Felsriegel - rock outcrops.


Sitting on one of the rock outcrops enjoying the view:)


We also tried to climb a bit. So you see, who fell down a bit? Brinda had a little accident, but she wasn't hurt, thank God.


She climbed up again and sat down next to us.


Then we all climbed down again and went on the way, which you see here, to go to the next rock outcrop.


Here we had been able to see the Kleine Arbersee - little Arber lake.


In the early afternoon we drove down again, because we wanted to walk around the Große Arbersee - big Arber lake.

Großer Arbersee, Germany - 15th August 2010

By: fam-united

After a few minutes drive by car we arrived at the Großer Arbersee - big Arbersee. Großer Arbersee is a lake at an elevation of 935 m, its surface area is 7.7 ha. It's about 10 000 years old. At its west side the water surface is covered by about 2 hectare swinging grass. Over thousands of years these swinging grass islands reached a thickness of between 1 and 3 meters. So much about information, now I just want to show you some photos. I really enjoyed to walk around the lake.



Here you see the swinging grass islands.
