I can’t believe that it is already May! Where has the time gone?
I have spent the first day of May in the beautiful little town of Bad Reichenhall in Bavaria, Germany. We took a nice walk on this sunny day from the Austrian border of Salzburg to Germany.
But why walk along the path if you can run through the fields?!
In Bad Reichenhall we stopped at the café Reber, which is famous for its delicious Mozartkugel, a chocolate truffle filled with marzipan and nougat. I sipped on a lovely Amadeus Spritz while soaking up the sun. It was delicious! A drink mixed with Prosecco, soda water, elderflower syrup and mint leaves, very light and summery. I’m planning on recreating it at home.
After a little chocolate truffle feast, we walked to the Königlicher Kurgarten which can best be translated as the ‘Royal Spa Garden’. It is a beautiful park, great to relax and to let yourself unwind.
We walked over to the ‘Gradierhaus’ wanting to experience its refreshing effect. The ‘Gradierhaus’ is the world-largest open-air inhalatorium. I have no idea how it works exactly, but you basically walk along the house taking deep breaths.
I found my perfect spot to relax. Can you guess where it was? ;)
After lazily listening to the gentle purl of the water we were getting hungry. So we set out to one of our favorite Italian place in Bayerisch Gmain, Da Mario. I opted for a light meal and ordered the gratinated gnocchi :D Deliciously cheesy and the perfect ending to such a lovely day!
