Austria & Oberammagau 2000

In June 2000 we visited Austria. We stayed in the Tyrol where we visited many places . We spent a week staying in Fugen, and then travelled to Germany. After visiting the Imperial sites of Hohenshwandau and Neushwanstein, we spent 2 nights in Ettal.   The intervening day was spent attending the Passion Play in Oberammagau . The following thumbnails will lead you to pages with more on that subject.
