Spätzle-Country 1: back in Schöntal

The first stop on our little expedition holiday to southern Germany was Kloster Schöntal - a little village with a huge cistercian monastery, and no doubt well known now to avid readers of this blog (if there are any). So beautiful here in June!

A walk along the Jagst river ...

Monastery garden

Beautiful old houses and castles

Strange creatures in pharmacy stores that look like a museum

Caves where strange folks are hanging out

Beautiful chapels

The monastery cathedral from one of the two walks we took today. Sabine knew this place only from my photos and is here for the first time. She fell quickly in love with the place, and already thinks about when to come back.

Through wonderful forests

and through fields ... summer already

I loved this house

Light in another chapel

Corrosion and nice colors

Original inhabitants

One of the main ingredients of our holidays everytime

In the deep forest, beautiful flowers

Looking back

An apple a day

The monastery yards from outside
