    After lunch we visited Runkelstein Castle, a medieval fortress built in the 1200's. It's main claimm to fame is the large number of period frescos painted about 100 years later. After various periods of disuse and damage, the castle and frescos were restored for public viewing in 2000.

    We changed trains in Rosenheim, and thought of our inebriated friend from the Salzburg trip. We didn't see him. Our second class seats put Chris ...
