2011 SHARKHUNTERS Bunker Patrol in the Southern Redoubt - Historic Dining.
During this "Patrol" we ate in some really fascinating and historic places. Join us - don't bother counting calories; the food was great so who cares........
|Inside the Holzkäfer is the
Grampus. He pops up every so
often and...well, we don't really know what he does but
we know we don't want to meet him in a dark alley.
|A holzkäfer is an insect that eats
wood, much like a termite.
Why this name was selected is anyone's guess, but the
place is spotless and the food is great.
|As we see here, everyone is enjoying the food and the fellowship.|
|This is a local brewery that has
been in operation more than
100 years before there was a United States of America!
|Who ate here some 70 or so years
Give your imagination some freedom.
|More scenes in the courtyard where we ate.||Who else ate here, saw these images 70 years past?|
Above - waiting in great anticipation for
our scrumptious meal.
Below - WOW! Our schweinehaxe arrived.
Each portion was more than a meal itself.
Right - did we mention that 'Recon'
RANDOLPH likes a little meal with his butter?
It has been said that the
Hochlenzer was one of Hitler's favorite places and we can see why.

Second - the view is breathtaking
Third - the folkloric evenings are great
Fourth - this is where Adolf Hitler learned from Dietrich Eckhart
Eckhart had a large home a few
hundred meters from this restaurant which is now under the control of
the U. S. Army, used for R & R (rest and recreation).
The food here, the service and atmosphere
was absolutely outstanding!
Everything is great - the food,
the service and the scenery, but here is the top of the evening - the
entertainment! It changes from time to time, but there's always a
Bavarian music group in Vorderbrand to entertain us with traditional
|We talked about the scenery.
This is what we saw as we
left Vorderbrand. The village is far below in the valley.
|Some of the guys wanted to keep Angela.|
As we have said many times - it is impossible to get a bad beer, a bad meal or a bad photograph here.
For our last evening on this 'Patrol'
RANDOLPH and Susie bought a lot of locally produced sausage, cheese,
bread, butter and wine for an impromptu 'Farewell Dinner' on the
terrace of the Hotel zum Türken. We have always said that Sharkhunters is
a big family, and it was a great evening, thanks to the Siples............many
