Bad Reichenhall

Ok firstly, “Bad Reichenhall” is pronounced like this:  bud rye-hen-hall, with a rolled “r” and a phlegmy “hen” and “hall.”

Secondly, to give a little bit of information about it, it is a spa town with numerous salt-water baths and even an open-air inhalatorium made of two nearly 570′ long corridors which are nearly 50′ tall, composed of 90,000 closely bundled blackthorn and hawthorn twigs.  The salt in the air increases as the water evaporates, and it is supposed to aid in respiration (pictured below)..  pretty interesting stuff there in this little town.  
They also make some of the best chocolate ever: The Mozart Kugel made by the Reber company.  o.  m.  g.  (which you can now find at World Market thank you!)



O yea, another thing:  in the photo above, there is a figure called “die Schlafende Hexe” which translates to “the sleeping witch.”  If you look at the mountain on the right hand side, towards where the two of them meet, you can see her profile (her head is on the downward slope, and then her body and feet go upward).  If it’s too far away, here is a google search with more up-close shots 🙂

And lastly me, in my hometown 🙂
