A Bavarian hike

Car wash!

In Bavaria we stopped by at our apartment near Freyung, which doesn’t see us very often, visited a school friend of Edi and had enough time for a hike south of Augsburg.

We started from Mittelneufnach, did a big circle to Oberneufnach, where we visited the lookout tower named after Christoph Scheiner – more about him below, and finally found our way back.

Christoph Scheiner (born 1573 in Markt Wald) was a physicist, optician and astronomer. He invented several instruments and worked as a professor in Ingolstadt and Rome. He is regarded as the co-discoverer of the sunspots, alongside Galileo.

As winter is coming back, we are looking for a museum next, luckily Stuttgart has some great car museums. More on our next post!
