Altstadt Burghausen

This afternoon I’m off to explore the old town of Burghausen. I have family here in Burghausen so I have been here many times before, but it’s been a long time since I have taken the time to fully appreciate and explore the town.

Here are some pictures from the beautiful AltstadtDSC07525DSC07529DSC07534DSC07580One of the things I love about this town is that on one side of this bridge you are in Germany.dsc07552.jpgand on this side of the bridge you are in Austria.DSC07550
