A Picture Book Village

A little village, just 5 km away, is picturesque Sasbachwalden. Almost every house a B& B or hotel that could be taken straight from a fairy tale story book. Surrounded by vineyards like our own town, Ottersweier, the countryside is ideal for hikers and bikers.
Remember, Hansel and Gretel? Here is the gingerbread house the nasty witch lured them into. Well, almost!

We had dinner there, nice,if a little overpriced. no wonder, prices were high; the village was teaming with tourists, primarily French. As it was very hot, in the high 90s, we didn't linger much longer but proceeded to the public swimming pool or Schwimmbad. The main attraction was a high slide/ Busloads of little French children were roaming around freely and enjoying their vacation and the water.

Some more impressions from Sasbachwalden.


As you can see the blooming of  the hollyhocks was almost over.
Mine at home just didn't want to flower for me. I picked a few ripe seeds. I often do that and smuggle them in my suitcase. A little souvenir from home.
We went back to that village several times; once started a rather strenuous hike there up towards a waterfall. More about next time!
Auf Wiedersehen!
