Subject: Teutoburger Wald in Western Germany
Hi Ziners,

I know, most of you are interested in the romantic south of Germany or in the big cities.

But Linda encouraged me to share a few pix with you of an area near my place, called the Teutoburger Wald. It's the area where Roman troops were stopped by German barbarians 2,000 years ago.

The link is As you can see, it is a rural area with nice castles, beautiful villages and great framework houses. There is very little tourism but there are great hotels. We love to go there for a week-end and relax.

Kind regards, Johannes Haltern am See, Germany
