I suggest, to play this music as this story is based on that song.

Now that I am older I appreciate more and more the beauty of my Upper Bavarian home. The mountains, rivers, many green Beer Gardens with their chestnut trees. The simple pleasure of a pancake soup.

And as we can’t travel much in those new times we discovered, it is not needed. So we decided to follow the turn of the Isar river and the Isarflimmern.

Scharnitz (Austria)

Karwendelgebirg (Mittenwald)

Klais, Bavaria’s highest train station???

Karwendel (left), Wetterstein with Zugspitze and Almaspitz, middle, Estergebirge (Ester Mountain Range right)



We also visited the Finzbachklamm (gorge, not the Grand Canyon but pretty). We saw many squirrels enjoying the spring but also a dead mouse on the way pushing my bike up. Maybe stepped on and killed by one of those notorious mountain runners. 

Upper Isar Valley


Jäger von Fall

With Wittelsbacher Prinzregent Luitpold who really hunted in this area/enclosure. And with Marianne und Michael

Sylvenstein Stausee (water reservoir)


Lenggries (we were again welcome by Tower Falcons living in the tower

Bad Tölz



There is not too much to say about the village Bairawies but it is mentioned in the song. We stopped next to a bee keeper which I noticed after taking this picture.

On the dangerous way to Beirawies we also crossed the little village “Einöd” (one-horse town).

An “Einöd“ also appears in Jäger von Fall.

Pupplinger Au and across the bridge at Wolfratshausen „Nantwein“ named after the holy Nantwein. 


We think, we should cherish nature more and that it should be possible to drink water out of the rivers from the spring to the mouth in the sea.

Rolling Stones im Isarbett, Lady Jane, „In der Summasonna auf dem weißen Kies“ (in the summer sun on the white gravel)

Rumors have it, that either Wittelsbacher King of Bavaria Ludwig I. or his son King Otto I. of Greece had a Lady Jane too. Maybe both.  

Wuiderer Jennerwein (of Course „Wuidschütz“ is correct)
