Altmuehl valley

We went by bike to Eichstaett. The Altmuehl valley is beautiful - the quaint river and the mountains


We were surprised about such a huge cathedral in such a small place. But we learnt, that Eichstaett has even a small univerity.

Looking for Fossils

Is it a fossil or is it only a stone?
Bring enough to drink and be sure to have sun lotion when the weather is fine.

    I like the Altmuehl valley too, but think you need to try some of the local beers after all that biking. ;) Will have to try canoeing there sometime myself.

    Eichstätt is really a lovely place. As far as I remember it was even on one of the best places in a recently published ranking among german cities.

    Looks lovely Tessy and the Bishops doorway is very impressive. As for fossils- Joe thinks I am one - lol

    I hitchhike between Munich and Nuremberg, the speed was 200 km/h and I did not had the chance to stop in Eichstatt.

    Wonderful page! Great idea to go looking for fossils, and great that you found one! I found a fossil by luck once years ago on a beach in England, and I still have it :-)))
