Lost in Germany ~ Day Two

Oberammergau

The little town, nestled in the Austrian Alps,is beautiful. From our hotel the veiw on one side was the moutains and on the other the Catholic church (in which we sang Sunday morning). The church bells sound every hour and also call the people to mass. Unfortunately mass is at 6 in the morning (among other times, we didn’t sing until 9:30, the Catholics are serious…), which awoke everyone in the hotel from our stupor. The choir sang four songs in St. Peter and Paul Church. Including A Mighty Fortress, but later we wondered if it was appropriate to have a reformation hymn (written by Luther) in a Catholic!

Neuschwanstien Castle

We drove to see one of the few remaining castles in Germany (most were damaged or destroyed during WWII) and we arrived it was a 30 minute hike up the mountain. Thankfully some of the boys found an off road shortcut. Unfortunately the rocky trail proved to be step and slick, which slowed our progress and when we arrived at the top the rest of the group arrived at the same time… later some of the boys scaled the mountain, which I made reference to in the first blog (it is the last photo, but you may have to strain to pick our thier waving hands).

  3. Great photos! How beautiful Germany must be! BTW, it is perfectly acceptible to sing “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” in the Catholic Church. It is doctrinally sound and is a beautiful song. It appears in many Catholic hymnals. Glad everyone is having fun. Can’t wait to see more pics!
