CornerView – love in my corner




“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


That is what I would like to give my child for life.
And a large portion of love that will always be here,
no matter where she will ever go.

CornerView – stranger

Last weekend we decided to make a short trip to enjoy the wonderful autumn.
And what lends itself more than the Alps in Bavaria?

I was not born in Bavaria, but I moved here in my youth.
Bavaria is my home.

However, despite the many years it feels like I’m a stranger in Bavaria.
It begins with the language.
Bavarian is a dialect that you – if actual Bavarian is spoken – do not understand readily.
At the first time at the new school was very strange for me.
I understood nothing.
Now after many years I understand the language clearly.
I even think I speak a little bit of Bavarian, or at least a German.

The Bavarians consider themselves to be German, but actually they would like a country in itself.
Encapsulated from Germany, a separate republic.
Or even monarchy, as it want the Bavarian royalists.
The actual Bavarian restrict the Bavarian country also.
The Franconia, which belongs partly to Bavaria, is already the land of Prussia.
For everything above a certain imaginary boundary is not Bavarian but prussian.
Although it still belongs to Bavaria.
Strange, do not you think?

Bavaria is strongly connected with the church.
There are many customs and traditions, I do not know and also do not celebrated.
But I’m very interested.
Even the Bavarian food is partly another, than I was accustomed to as a child.
Roast pork and dumplings, a sour potato salad, apple strudel.

Bavaria is a rich country.
It’s a country in which the children receive a good education.
For example, the Bavarian High School is one of the most difficult schools of Germany
= education is not uniform in Germany.
Bavaria’s conservative, christian and yet so colorful.
Bavarians are often grumpy and have a quirky sense of humor.
And I love it.
Bavaria is a very beautiful country with a different nature.
The highlights include Munich, the subalpine lakes and the Alps.
And a few castles.

The best known is Castle Neuschwanstein in Hohenschwangau.
It is about two hours away from us.
And we also visited it on our short trip.

We thought we walk to the castle, buy tickets and make an English guide
(it is only possible to get into the castle with a guide, and we want to practice English).
We did not expect the masses of tourists that flock on a beautiful autumn to Neuschwanstein.
Four hours would have lasted until the next guide.
We have decided to come back on a cold winter day.

Bavaria is well worth a visit – I can put any to the heart.
But until then … I will show you more of the country in which I live.
Let’s make together a year travel through Bavaria … do you like to do?
And then you will no longer be a stranger.



Castle Neuschwanstein from afar.
And on the first image right beside the mountain called Säuling. (2047 m)
Exactly 20 years ago (madness is not it?), I have climbed this mountain with a group of friends.
We all got to know in our training as a nurse  and are always friends.
Up there I experienced chamois in the wild and celebrated the summit above the clouds.







Top image photographed my daughter.
She stood on the bridge Marie, of which one has a wonderful view of Neuschwanstein Castle.
The bridge was named after Queen Marie and performs on the Pöllatschlucht.
And it is very, very high.


In addition to the Castle Neuschwanstein is only a few kilometers away Castle Hohenschwangau.
The castle was the first one and Bavarian king Ludwig II has there spent his nursery.
Castle Neuschwanstein was built later by Ludwig II.
He wanted to idealize his idea of ​​a knight’s castle from the Middle Ages.


Autumn in Bavaria


This is a typical house with murals from the Bavarian Alps.
Because where I live there is rarely painted houses,
because it depends in what area you are.



Here you can see a typical Bavarian food:
Bratwürstl + Kartoffeln + Sauerkraut (fried sausages with potatoes and sauerkraut)

CornerView – something to celebrate

Every day with our Frieda is a celebration,
and for Frieda every day is a celebration
when she can lie on the couch.

CornerView – travel


Visiting foreign countries and foreign cities is always an adventure,
especially if you do not understand the language.
It a great pleasure to discover new:
drink and eat,
people and buildings,
and to learn for life.

Travelling is something very fulfilling.

Travel becomes something more special when you visit friends
and they show their own country.
It again gets a little more insight than you would only exclusively as a tourist.

Last summer we visited Elsa and her family.
It was an adventure for us, and it was definitely like coming home.

CornerView – a good read

a good read –

currently I’m reading a detective story, a nice detective story, but not a creepy thriller.

A detective story with a sympathetic Commissioner who has a few quirks,

and comes on sometimes unusual way to a solution.

The best part is that the book is in Brittany.

It is reported by the manners and customs,

the everyday,

the food and drink,

the legends and the people,

and all that flows into a nice detective story.

The author is actually German but lives in Brittany – it’s called.

CornerView – darkness & light

 Hello friends,
I hope you have good experiences the Christmas and New Year celebration!

And be ready once again for a year full of Corner Views?
I am pleased to see you all again.

Here and there I’ve already shown pictures from Brittany.
Beautiful, highly recommended.
And a long report from our holiday in France will follow … soon.
Still, I can not leave it and
I have to show you here and there a few photos from Brittany.

Darkness and light – which is quite close to each other in Brittany.
The light is wonderfully bright, so bright in the sea.
And yet, within a few minutes, as out of nowhere, pulls darkness of the sea on land.
And a warm, light-filled summer day changes to a dark stormy day.

Christmas … before and after

How was your Christmas, friends? Have you spent a nice time?

A few days before we celebrated Christmas, we have renovated our living room.
I have many books, and I have finally sorted out and
keep only those who really close to my heart.
I have disposed of the old shelves and exchanged for new ones.
Painted walls, built Ikea furniture, lamps installed …
only the couch that we wanted to keep.
It is very convenient … not just for us.
Now, it again looks a bit neater, stocked and tidy.
















And then it was time to celebrate Christmas.

CornerView – view on my street

In my street live many old people,
since their homes were built.
And a few families who are newly involved.
Here live many, many cats and a few dogs.
Sometimes you talk with the neighbor over the fence,
but there are hardly any closer contact between people.
In my street not much happens.
Actually, nothing happens.
Few pedestrian, but some cars.
Sometimes a few children who ride a bicycle or skateboard.
A village street.
Nothing more.

This is the view of the road, where I live:

The view from my living room window onto the street.


The view when I stand in front of the house, to the right.


The view when I stand in front of the house, to the left.


The view of the house where I live.
The left window is my living room window,
the right window is the bedroom window,
and the middle window is the window in the stairwell.

Corner View – pets

Francesca gave me the idea to tell you about our trip with Frieda.
Sometime in the summer she asked if it’s hard to travel with our dog.
Basically no.
Quite a lot you can not do with a dog.
But you know that as soon as a dog receives in the family,
and decides it needs to go with the family in every holiday, on each trip.
And once you know that, you look to its destinations from other points.

Germany is a relatively dog-friendly country,
dogs are allowed almost everywhere to go into the restaurant, the cafe, the hotel.
There are special dog beaches by the sea, and especially popular are trips to the mountains.
But from Germany I do not want to tell you,
because I prefer to travel far away instead of staying in the near of my home.

We considered and deliberate …
there are many places and countries wishing we like to see and visit.
We chose France because everywhere we read on the internet about traveling with a dog,
France ranked first as dog friendly country.
And yes, it’s true.

There are many, many accommodations for travelers with dog,
there are many, many dog ​​owners in France,
and the most beautiful, there are many endless beaches where dogs are allowed.
Most dogs run off leash there,
so there are always meetings between dogs that run very peaceful.
A little sniffing, a little play … and every dog ​​went his own way again.
The beaches were very clean despite many dogs. The dogs had all well-behaved.

Our Frieda felt very, very well  near the sea.
She could run endlessly,
there was so much to discover ( algae) and sniffing ( and again algae).
Frieda – she does not like water – even went a few steps into the sea.
One evening Frieda discovered a cancer that ran across the beach.
She was fascinated.
Sniffing, licking over it … and no, not eating, just watching.
