Hotel Wittelsbach, Oberammergau, Germany
Oberammergau is a cool little town in southern Germany that is best known for its Passion Play that is performed every 10 years (it was started back in 1634!). We explored this town and its surroundings for a couple days during our German class trip 10 years ago, staying at the Hotel Wittelsbach shown in this postcard. While there, we befriended a couple of older teens that worked at the hotel, Michael and Lide, and on our first night, they brought us to a super-crowded Disco…we didn’t stay long, but we did spend a few hours with them at a pancake house. The next night, we went back to the pancake house and met some of their friends as well before racing back to the hotel to beat our 12am curfew by 2 minutes…
So wherever you might be, thanks Michael and Lide for giving us a great cultural experience in Oberammergau!
