Thus I realized that while I mentioned Harry, I didn't show you photos of him/her. Or the Abbey, or some of the other Engelhartszell activities.
Engelhartszell Police Station....glad I was just walking by and not visiting inside
The Abbey - Stift Engelszell
Inside is beautiful, it has two styles of painting
This Abbey also had what I found out are saints. They were buried here (is it still being buried when you're in a clear coffin above ground? I'm serious. I don't know what to call it, truly) a long time ago
Not too often you see 20th century art on the ceiling of a church - this is in the cubist style
Here's more the traditional style
The herb garden that is used for the brewery
A nice little park that is about the Danube River Valley
9 meter long "Harry" the Sturgeon
The real thing - this is the 6ft long Harry
Here's Ken checking out the types of fish that are found in the Danube - he truly enjoyed this aquarium (as did I)
A real German Brown Trout....ok, it's a photo, but still, we're in Germany...
Picturesque view of the valley as seen from the Abbey
We're walking through the park, about to pass the 9 meter long Sturgeon
Ken enjoying the first of the two beers included in the tasting
I enjoyed the first of the two beers too. Not the second. That was one Greg and Ken liked though.
We all had a good time
They gave us a sample of cheeses (yummy 'stinky cheese') and Magenbitter - the guide said it would make you feel better when you were sick. You'd drink it and either feel better, or throw it up and then you'd feel better too. So it was a win/win! :-) We haven't tried it yet - I think we'll have some good tastings once we reach Amsterdam and drink all the things we've purchased so far!
