When I close my eyes and think of our time in Bavaria, I can hear the sound of cow bells chiming. It was an absolute dream and I cannot wait to return. Here are some photos from Murnau, Starnberg and the lovely Bad Kohlgrub, where we stayed.

Taking this lift up the Wettersteingebirge left me feeling dizzy with altitude sickness - it's much steeper than it looks - and we hiked back down!
