Our Bavarian Town Quest Continues: Dachau

Dachau is a beautiful Bavarian town with cobbled streets and pretty houses. It’s only a 15 minute drive from my village along scenic country roads, and last Saturday afternoon, bro took me and our mum there for a little outing. I hadn’t been to Dachau in absolutely ages!

I love that window for being so typically Bavarian in a town that’s not particularly touristy. But the comma in that notice (“Free beer tomorrow”), which totally shouldn’t be there, irks me! I am a stickler…

“Beware of the CONSCIENTIOUS dog”.

Now, the real reason for the Dachau trip was to get stuck into some good cake… more on that in the next post ๐Ÿ™‚

    Stunning again! I’m a sucker for this series ๐Ÿ™‚ Even without cake! And the conscientious dog sign made me laugh! They’re all angry in Latvia – uzmanibu, nikns suns – caution, angry dog ๐Ÿ˜‰

        In the Northern Ireland countryside the signs say “Caution: dogs running free”. At least that’s what the sign on a tree on my brother’s property says, and I like it. Happy, healthy, free-running dogs. But maybe we need to get a new sign “beware of the donkeys”.

        That would terrify me. The dogs, not the donkeys. Dogs can be pretty territorial, and I’ve been bitten more than once. Don’t get me wrong, I like dogs, but I need them either to be very good natured or adequately controlled.


      3. Karolyn Cooper

        These particular dogs are very good natured – and I must blog photos of them one day.
        The main purpose of the sign is actually to warn cars driving into the farmyard to slow down – we don’t want them crashing into the dogs.

    Oh, heavens, you’d NEVER get me up that ride! I love the thought of a ‘conscientious’ dog. Does this mean he thinks seriously about biting you before he does? And I have apostrophobia too. Drives me bonker’s [sic]
    …now where did you say the cake was?

      Don’t get me started on apostrophes… you see English apostrophes creeping into German, where they are plainly wrong, just because they are deemed ‘fashionable’. I can’t stand it…!

      Cake AND flowers coming up in the next post ๐Ÿ™‚

        I just drank a liter of grapefruit juice. It’s important to rehydrate for a good night sleep! Especially because I am planning to walk to work tomorrow. TWO HOURS.

    judging from some of the photos, you were having some cake while enjoying one or two of fair’s rides ๐Ÿ˜‰ scream while trying to eat some is a totally new concept to me ๐Ÿ˜€ Just kidding. Dachau looks like a nice place to visit

        I’ve just remembered that 25 years ago, when I first entered the world of work, I had some acquaintances who worked for a brewery. Every employee got 72 litres of free beer a month ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It does look like a lovely city. Is it just me, or do Germans love flowers and their gardens – however small?
    After the free beer, I’m looking forward to the cake and ice cream ๐Ÿ˜€

    Honestly, I look at your photos and I’m kind of envious. You have a terrific eye for catching some little scene, some detail, or something interesting. And I love the idea of a “pflichtebewuรŸter hund.” Is he so conscientious that he doesn’t bite? Or does it go the other way? LOL
