Travelled: 68 kilometres from Wattens, Austria to Mittenwald, Germany
Visited: Mittenwald, Hoherbahn cable car €27.50 pp
Stayed: Mittenwald stellplatz €12, all the usual services. N47.43827, E11.26451
We depart Innsbrook on the 171, Dave and Britt both agree its a more seenic route back into Germany than the E45/177. So we dawdle along the 171 before turning north at Telfs. The road is steep, but there is little traffic, so its more relaxed than dealing with truck and fast cars.
Mittenwald is just on the German side of the frontier with Austria. Our plan is to meet fellow Australian motorhome travellers Rob and Krys at the stellplatz. We have corresponded with Rob and Krys for about a year now. Things fell into place we were all in southern Germany and it was only a few kilometres extra for our second Aussie catch up in as many days.
We meet Rob and Krys at the stellpatz and start chatting away like we have known each other for years. I could go on but after months on the road its good to babble on with someone who has had similar adventures. Next thing you know it’s time for a beer and wine. Rob and Krys have been chatting about what a nice village Mittenwald is, so we go for a wander.
Without boring you with details we decide on a night in, the BBQ come out, the drinks flow as well as the chit chat. So it was a late night.
By the time we make our way back to the cable car, down the mountian and back to our respective Hymers its time to say our goodbyes. Whilst we will be back in Sydney in a few weeks Rob and Krys are planning on another 12 months before they return to the Gold Coast in Queensland. So we wish either other well and roll out of Mittenwald for our next adventure.
