Höglwörth und die Augustinerchorherrn
from the Rupertiwinkel:
The chiming of the church clock repeatedly accompanies the early spring lake of Höglwörth, which is beginning to give way to the life of nature, on the 2 km long walk, which is so beneficial for soul and spirit. At the same time, it reminds us of the more than 700 years of life and work of the Augustinian canons in this monastery, which is still unique today as the "pearl of the Rupertiwinkel" on the peninsula and reminds us of its affiliation with the Archdiocese of Salzburg.
The Augustinians shaped the life and the land at the foot of the Högl and in the possessions scattered far and wide over what is now the province of Salzburg and the Rupertiwinkel.....

The hiking season starts
Soon it will be that time again!
The hiking summer in the Rupertiwinkel ...
Included: The Teisenberg with its countless hiking routes with the destination of the Stoißer Alm ...
On the pictures you can see the wide countryside of the Rupertiwinkel and on the other picture the Berchtesgadener and Chiemgauer Alps with the Hochstaufen and the Zwiesel in front ...
Daffodils - they are hardly missing in a spring flower bed.
Only very rarely found - as here in Neukirchen (municipality of Teisendorf) - do they still grow in small groups in their original form (Narcissus pseudonarcissus). The wild growing daffodil appreciates chalk-poor, light locations on mountain meadows or in mixed forests and prefers a well-drained stand. Please note: Plant is poisonous; picking and digging forbidden - not even as a hand bouquet!
The Joseph Flowers bloom on Joseph Day
Just in time for the 19th of March - the name day of St. Joseph - the Joseph flowers (two-leaved blues / Scilla bifolia) blossom every year. They owe their common name to the high holiday commemorating the father of the infant Jesus. Until 1968, this day was even a Bavarian public holiday.
Every year, the question arises anew why these beautiful blue stars always manage to "keep this date". Whether it is an early or a late spring, or whether there is heavy snowfall in between like today: there seems to be no obstacle for these beautiful ambassadors of early spring.
Please note and be careful: the whole plant is poisonous and the two-leaved bluestem, which rarely grows wild in Germany, is specially protected by the Federal Species Protection Ordinance, so it must not be picked even for small hand bouquets.
Freilassing locomotive world
It is still closed - the Lokwelt Freilassing. Soon, those responsible hope, people will be able to marvel and talk shop again....
"The Sleeping Witch"
Do you see her lying there? "The Sleeping Witch" (the Latten Mountains):
Coming from the right, the view goes over the forehead to the eye socket, the nose with mouth and chin and then on to the bosom.... an unmistakable formation in the Berchtesgaden Alps...
The Holy Sepulchre of Höglwörth
Hardly any records can be found about the gentleman's grave in Höglwörth, which is known from the Baroque period and still exists today. As is so often the case with research, entries in inventory lists and account books determine the first exact dating. The account book of 1645 gives the hint of a holy grave.
The Holy Sepulchre of Höglwörth, which was originally scheduled to take place every three years on Good Friday and Good Saturday in the monastery church of the former Ausgustiner choir monastery, will not take place this year (2021) after 2020 due to the "cornona" and the community of men's graves is already planning for 2023.
More about the "Holy Sepulchre" with a lot of background knowledge and richly expressive illustrations can be found in the book "His Grave Will Be Glorious" - view and order: www.roha-fotothek.de/veroeffentlichungen/sein-grab-wird-herrlich-sein
In the Schönramer Moor - Rupertiwinkel
Since the beginning of renaturation in the 1970s, it has been easy to observe how nature, in visible steps from year to year, "reclaims" the areas once worked with peat digging and industrially for peat extraction.
On the Way of the Cross around Lake Höglwörth
From the region of the Rupertiwinkel:
The path around Lake Höglwörth; at any time of the year for anyone and everyone a benefit in the circumnavigation of this wonderfully situated "gem" of nature (Anger in the Berchtesgaden Rupertwinkel).
During Lent until the Saturday after Easter, there is the experience of a Way of the Cross built by the community of the Holy Sepulchre. The panels of the stations show the difficult walk of Jesus from the condemnation to the crucifixion and burial.
The custom of walking the Stations of the Cross originated in the 14th century. The Franciscans developed the custom of pilgrimage in the Holy Land. The suffering and death of Jesus were to be depicted as vividly as possible. They walked the way Jesus probably walked - today called Via Dolorosa - the painful road.
Helleborus niger - the snow rose
As soon as the last snow has thawed, the snow roses stretch their white flowers to the light - mostly found in light beech and mixed beech forests on calcareous soils - in the Berchtesgaden Alps they climb up to heights of over 1500 m - here on the early spring hike up to the Kneifelspitze (1198 m).
Caution and please note: the plant is highly poisonous and particularly protected. The “Red List Germany” classifies them as endangered.
Dust from the Sahara - a blessing for agriculture
"Around 8,000 years ago the dust piled up to a meter and provided soil rich in nutrients in the Main-Franconian area near Ochsenfurt and the Gäuboden near Straubing." - says Roland Eichhorn, head of the geological service at the State Office for the Environment.
The sand from the Sahara - strong winds and large temperature differences of up to 40 degrees plus and minus degrees at night in the desert - drive the mineral dust particles to great heights and the warm air from North Africa makes its way over the Alps; yes - the Saharan dust with its fertility even finds its way across the Atlantic to the Amazon region of South America. Described in its fertility as “the blessing for agriculture”, the phenomenon of Saharan dust repeats itself several times a year, but today mostly barely visible and as a wafer-thin layer.
The pictures show the sunset with "Saharan dust" - seen from Surbergbichl (municipality border Surberg - Teisendorf / Neukirchen) looking towards the Chiemgau Alps.
Not all snowdrops are created equal ...
from the Berchtesgadener Land / Rupertiwinkel
They are popularly referred to as snowdrops: In early spring they cover natural locations - such as moist meadows and light alluvial forests - with their white flowers. Botanically, however, this wild flower, which is reluctant to be transplanted, is called the spring knot flower (Leucojum vernum) or Märzenbecher. It is under strict nature protection and may not be picked or dug up!
"The Watzmann - fabulous and shrouded in legend"
In the BLOG post you will find fantastic pictures of this mountain - the landmark of the Berchtesgadener Land!
You can see the mighty mountain range in the southernmost part of the Berchtesgadener Land as far as the land in front of the mountains - the Rupertiwinkel!
"The perspective of the photo standpoint makes the difference"
from the region
Also this year it will be summer again in the Rupertiwinkel:
"The perspective of the photo standpoint makes the difference" Chapel in the parish of Anger (Berchtesgadener Rupertiwinkel) with the wonderfully blooming meadow in summer
Carnival in Teisendorf - a tradition
from the region
Future chronicles will read: "A tiny animal named Corona has interrupted the traditional events for a few years." The tradition itself, which has grown over decades, even centuries, cannot be ended by this. This includes one of the largest carnival parades in the southeastern Bavarian region - the Teisendorfer carnival parade through Marktstrasse - "approved" for the first time in 1881. From 1950 onwards, the "carnival in Teisendorf" and thus also the carnival procession will only be canceled for the third time this year (2021) .
