Lighter-than-air desserts with even lighter whipped cream, delicious coffee and friendly service at Cafe zum Sahneberg (Cream Mountain) in the Bavarian Forest of Germany. This local favorite is certainly a treat, accompanied by open-air tables and a sweeping view of the countryside.
My visit to a dragon's cave and the experience of a 500-year-old "dragon slaying" in Furth-im-Wald, Germany. The robotic dragon is one of the largest self-propelled robots in the world. The pageantry is phenomenal!
