Adventure in the cold season: Ice diving at Urisee (Austria)

During the cold season all the life in the lake is protected by a thick sheet of ice from external influences.

Traces on the frozen lake.

A triangular hole makes it easier to climb in and out of the water.

 During descent we can see the fascinating rays of sunlight.

 Ice and air builds fabulous sculptures like from another dimension.

We always had to be careful in order not to injure us on the sharp edge.

A beautiful moment when we came up to the surface.

At the Museum of natural history  (Museum am Löwentor) in Stuttgart you can make a trip to times which has been long ago.

There are a lots of exhibits of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals.

Of course there is a T-Rex which is breaking his head through the wall.

All fans of elephants and mammoths are able to admire a lot of exhibits like this one.

But the museum did not only show dinosaurs there also exists a area for experiments, evolution and geology.

rainy Munich

Although rainy weather Munich offers some nice views. For example the new town hall with "Marienplatz". Many tourists are watching the world famous "Glockenspiel" at twelve o'clock.

Normally the "Viktualienmarkt" is very busy, but on sundays it is orphaned.

View from the tower "Alter Peter" to the "Heilig Geist" church:
