    Day 16: Peißenberg (Siglhof), DE 🇩🇪

    July 21 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Morning was spent getting our bags organized in case the rain came as predicted. We had a delicious breakfast at the AirBnB, and went out into the cloudy 68° weather about 9:15 AM. We took another little spin around Munich, and decided since it was 15 minutes before 10:00 we would watch the Glockenspiel in the Marienplatz. Nearly a 1000+ people gathered to watch, and were disappointed when 10:00 came, as the first show of the day is at 11:00. We headed on to exit Munich, and in search for the best weißwurst in Munich 🌭🤤. We found Gaststätte Großmarkthalle, and enjoyed two of the famous whites sausages with sauerkraut, pretzels, mustard, and some cheese bread ( Lisa tried to order cheese spread for the pretzels, but some times things are lost in the translation and accent 😂.) The riding was cooler with a bit of mist falling from the cloud covered sky. We rode along the Stranberger Lake and stopped to wade in the cool water. We ate lunch at a beer garden along the lake. Near the end of our day of riding the clouds broke and after some large climbs we were graced with our first view of the Alps. Our Warmshower hosts Martin, Velena, and Florentine (almost 2) live in the countryside outside Peissenberg. It is a beautiful old German farm workers residence that has been converted into a more modern multi-resident home. We had a great dinner of pasta salad, bread, other vegetables, and ice cream for dessert.Read more
