Located about an hour south of Munich, Germany sits Bad Tolz. Located on the River Isar, with a population of less than 20,000 people, and dating back to the year 1180, Bad Tolz is a picturesque Bavarian town.
Once you pass under the Bad Tolz Tower, you enter Market Street which is closed to traffic. Here, the baroque houses line the stone street, and in keeping with Bavarian tradition, the facades are painted.
The city museum building is a sight within itself!
The local toy store is full of wooden German toys and is big on Playmobil!
Here are some other town highlights
The pictures looks so nice and cool.
It was picture perfect! Some of the buildings didn’t look real…
Furrylittlegnome could not believe her eyes! True Bavaria!!!
I have a bunch of Playmobil sets from when my boys were young. I also like to get some of the single little sets as gifts for adults! Need to wait until grandson is just a tad older to pull them out. He is still in the Duplo/Lego and larger Mega blocks mode.
It took a few shows but I like the new Sherlock – Elementary. 🙂
Thanks for you visits…enjoy yours.
The toys there are much better than here. Most of the toys are made of wood and the playmobil options are unlimited!
Our grandson has a great uncle on his mom’s side that believes in wooden toys. Still makes sure to get him some. He has a wonderful two piece car carrier with four seperate cars!
Everything is so well made and put to good use. It makes us Americans seem kind of wasteful.
I once read an article about a gal who for one year did some serious thinning out by either gifting, giving or trashing 5 items a day. I tried it once. I think I need to try it again…
Exactly what you would imagine it should look like. 🙂
Yes, it did not disappoint!
Loved your post, Danke! 🙂
Thanks for visiting!!!
Nice place, good post. It is encourage to visit…
Very nice presentation!
It was like being in a make-believe city…the buildings don’t look real.
I had the pleasure of living there in the late 80s. The kaserne just outside of town had been the home of the 1/10th US Special Forces Group. Prior to that, it had been the home of the Nazi SS officers’ school. Bavarians are some of the most wonderfully warm people on the planet….and let’s not even talk about the food. Dang, I sure miss it. Thanks for the photographic walk down memory lane. Still as beautiful as I remember it.
Furry thinks she knows exactly where you are talking about – the area now houses a Montessori school and athletic complex. Bad Tölz was just wonderful! The streets looked fake as the buildings were just so perfect! Thanks for visiting!
The beautiful scenes truly remind me of “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”, the sixth 007 movie. Such grand settings!
Thanks! Furrylittlegnome always says European settings are so wonderful. They are old, beautiful and full of history.
