A friend called me yesterday and asked me if I want to go with them a bit sightseeing to some places in Bavaria, Germany. I told her, “sure why not, just leave a message in my facebook and let me know what time are we leaving.” And so the story goes…

From my friend’s house, the way going to Kallmünz (written in English as Kallmuenz) will be passing to our home, she decided to just pick me up. We left today around 11:10 am. We don’t have snow this winter time (and I am glad about it) but still wearing a good winter jacket is a must because it is still cold outside.

To make the story shorter, we climbed the castle ruins in Kallmünz since it is located on top of the hill. From there you will have a fantastic view of the whole town and its surroundings. Here are some of the images I took today.

You can also see the medieval old stone bridge over the river Naab at the middle of the image here.

Kallmünz is a municipality located in the district of Regensburg in Bavaria, Germany.

    I just learned that my Mother's side of the family came from this area in the 1830s. The landscape shot is very beautiful. It's nice to get an over-view!

    That was a long climb to the top but what wonderful views – and a very Eurpean ambiance.

    Another great place. Once again, I'm impresses with the beauty of the old tower and the ruins. I don't know I just like them (relics/ruins) a lot, I feel the many stories they possess.
