We’ve been in the new house for just over a month now, and loving every minute of it. Our town, Schmidmühlen, has about 2,300 residents and cobblestones for days.
Everything is within walking distance, including a bakery, a grocery store, a bank, and a delicious Italian restaurant.
A trickling stream runs right through the village center, and there’s a restaurant called Zum Goldenen Lamm whose menu consists entirely of trout caught from this stream. We finally allowed Cadence off the leash since there is so much open space for her to run around, and she couldn’t stop plopping herself in the water.
The maze of cobbled roads and endless paths into the countryside make the perfect recipe for a leisurely Sunday walk.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a complete Bavarian town without the flowers and window boxes.
My favorite part of Schmidmühlen is the bridge overlooking the stream. Every time I walk past (usually on my way to the Italian Restaurant), I stop for about 5 minutes and just stare.
