The Maytree and the Bergkirchlein church on an altitude of 2600m

We are very happy with our pictures of the Maytree on Zugspitzplatt. I was just struggling with my glasses due to the heavy sunlight. It gives a special effect on the picture which we like. We were surprised to find a small church, the Bergkirchlein, on this altitude. It has a wooden interior with some wall paintings and an altar. There are seats for aproximately 25 people.

We zijn zeer blij met onze foto’s van de meiboom op het Zugspitzplatt. Ik was net met mijn bril aan het prutsen vanwege het felle zonlicht. Het heeft een speciaal effect op de foto, wat we wel leuk vinden. Tot onze verbazing vonden we hier op deze hoogte een kleine kerk, de Bergkirchlein. De binnenkant is in hout met enkele schilderijen en een altaar. Er zijn zitplaatsen voor ongeveer 25 mensen..

  6. Is a Maytree anything like a Maypole? Maybe not, because I have never seen one in the snow before, or one that looked this nice! I'm loving the little church, especially the front doors, with the stonework pattern!!! I would imagine that people come in there to pray that they don't break their legs while skiing!
