A cute little town with a little 1 street town centre with cafes and cobblestone
Was raining a lot the day we were there so we really just realxed and chilled around the town centre – explored the churches and took a peek into some shops but mainly just had a relaxing , slow and chilled day enjoying the rain
btw, BAD means SPA! It got its name from back in the mid 19th c. wheniodine springs were discovered in the area and Bad Tolz became a Spa resort town, 1899 is when it got the name of Bad Tolz
There has been occupation here since the retreat of the glaciers at the end of the Ice Age
There once was a castle here but was burnt in a fire which destroyed a lot of the medieval town back then 😦
We were forced to take a detour and go the long way, hence why we got there so late, there was an accident or road blockage or some sort
Easy walk from the car park to the town centre, a very small place so it was easy to walk around and see majority of the sights
Woke up to drizzley rainy weather, we hve been so lucky so far so we didnt complain much, plus we were wanting an easy day as we have been out and about from avg 8am to 10-11pm every day
Looks like a bucks party! Interesting things going on in this tiny town lol… a group walking past our motorhome
NOW everyone decides to leave? lol
Breakfast before our exploration begins!
Walking in slong the Isar River to town
As we walked in, we were shocked straight away at the beauty of the buildings! Even a small town can surprise you!
A beautiful church on the hill
Hello! how beautiful!!
The origins of this beautiful but small town are connected to the Rover Isar which was a traffic artery in the Middle Ages with trade being brought up north to Munich
first glimpse of the market square and we were in shock at all the beauty of the buildings and the colours even on a sade rainy day!
Ummm, HELLO! check our those cakes! I love german bakeries
aaand… after… it was raining really bad so I decided to have more coffee and draw the beautiful scenery instead
The Parish Church of the Assumption in the background
Due to the location of the salt mines in Bad Reichenhall, Bad Tolz was ideally placed to prosper from all the activity on between
14th c. it recieved its official market rights
The details on the buildings are so intricate and beautifully created!
Rain or not people are out and about
The details on the buildings are so lovely and colourful here
Bad Tolz also was known for its breweries and in the 18th c there were 22 breweries in town!
Assumption of Mary – The interior of the church
A catholic church, first mentioned in a document in 1392, there would have been a little chapel on site here
