      Hi and you’re very welcome, Cornelia. Since I had the great privilege of spending lots of time in a Schengen Europe, I’m very interested in the idea of (porous) international borders within Europe. So much to learn, so little time to discover, explore, and get a solid handle of the history 😉 Thanks again!

      Thanks, A! The hills and mountains are always alive, but not necessarily to music; the sounds are often mooing cows, cowbells, bleating sheep, or barking from shepherd dogs 😆 I miss these places, too, especially as I was supposed to be flying out there at the end of this week.

      Hi again. The trip as always was going to parts work and relaxation, though I usually spend most of the time pounding the pavement going between places.

    really nice pictures and story, the Via Raetia was actually built by the Celts from Venice to Augsburg, the Celts had no written language then, so no written name!
    The Romans then decided to kick the Celts, who stormed Rome about 400BC, out of Europe and fortified the road that goes straight through Partenkirchen, turns left at Oberau, through Ettal, Oberammergau and onto Augsburg to the west of the newer Munich.
    Looks like your trips to the Via Raetia, or Rott Strasse could take a while?
    The route was also used by anybody wanting to go North or South to Europe or the Holy Lands on the Crusades, Barbarossa made the trip on his way to the Third Crusade.
    Don´t worry, everybody forgets that Bavaria, Austria and Northern Italy were full of Celts before the Romans came along.

      Grüss Gott und danke, Chris! Thanks for your reminder about the Celts and the Via Raetia; I’d like to know what the Celts called the road (or set of roads) before the Romans and their imperial descendants put their Latin names on Via Raetia and Via Imperii. Thanks again for your comment and for stopping by; bleiben Sie gesund!
