My 10 year old daughter, my husband and myself are planning a trip to Austria in March. From Salzburg, we are planning a day trip to Bad Recichenhall(salt mine and inhalitorium) and then lake Königssee and back to Salzburg. Is this doable in a day? And is bayern ticket the best option? please suggest...
Can someone tell me where Bad Reichenhall cemetery is located? I've been looking at the maps but can't spot it anywhere
Many thanks in advance
What is the better way to go and return between Bad Reichenhall - Salzburg, train or bus ?thanks
I googled the map and saw a footbridge across the river from Nonn to Bad Raichenhall. Is that bridge usable? I was doubting it because when I click on "Get Direction" on the google map, it tells me to go on the main roadbridge across the river, which is further south, and turns the walking trip to 6km, instead of 2km.
I look forward to visiting this beautiful spa town soon.
I realize that this a rather strange question, but my father was stationed in Bad Reichenhall from 1945 to 1946 as part of 9th division of the U.S. army. I believe he lived in the kaserne on the edge of town that was still there when I last visited in 1988. Unfortunately, I really never got talk to my father about what Bad Reichenhall was like following the war. I do know that he enjoyed being stationed there and became extremely friendly with a local dentist and his family. (Dr. Rah) I remember my father telling me that this dentist was rather well known throughout the area and for that matter throughout Germany. As a matter of fact, he did rather extensive dental work on my father the quality of which amazed any American dentist that he ever saw. As partial payment for the dental work, my father drove the doctor around and ran errands for him in his pre war Opel Kapitan. I believe the doctor and his family lived in a house overlooking the city very close to the cable car.
Getting back to my original question. I would really like to know what it was like living in Bad Reichenhall in 1945=1946 which will hopefully give me some insight into what my father experienced. Maybe someone even knows something about the doctor and his family. I plan on visiting the area once again in a few weeks and would very much like any information someone might be able to give me. Thank you in advance.
