Europe Day 5 and 6: Hiabach

Just click on any picture to enlarge it! 

After an afternoon in Dresden, we were back on the road and made it to my brothers house in Hiabach, Germany, a distance of 402 kms in about 3 hours and 10 mins.
We spent the next two days visiting with my brother and his family and using their house as a base for a couple of day trips to a few places close to where they live.
On our first day trip, just over an hours drive away, we made our first stop of the day in Dachau, which was the first Nazi concentrations camp opened in Germany, about 16 kms north west of Munich in the region of Bavaria.
It was powerful; to see something like that first hand, it just left me speechless.


My wife and I spoke about it afterwards, and we both agree, it was something we were glad we did and it is something we both will never forget.
Then it was onto Neues Schloss Herrenchiemsee, King Ludwig's summer castle on Herreninsel, an island in the Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake, about 60 kms south east of Munich.

The next day we spent the afternoon in Regensburg, another city in Bavaria, located at the confluence of the Danube and Regen rivers, just east of the Bavarian forest.

Thanks to for the location facts!
