decided to go off on our own for the day and purchased tickets at
the rail station for the 40 minute ride to the village of
Berchtesgaden where we would see a working salt mine.
railway system in Germany always runs on time and the cars are
well-maintained. The train winds through the countryside and
offers breathtaking views from the windows. It's almost as if a
path was carved only wide enough for the train, leaving most of
the countryside untouched.
