The town Rosenheim located in the lovely Chiemgau is an knotpoint of very old streets from northern Europe to the south or from west ot east. If you know the highway from Munich to Salzburg, can you imagine that on this (now new) road over 2500 years ago traders were riding from the northern coasts of Germany dealing with amber in Italy and bringing back stuff from there to the countries like Danmark or Russia? Later on the salt traders used these station to rest on their way from Salzburg to Augsburg or coming from Innsbruck to Regensburg.

Rosenheim always was used having guests, some of them not all time kindly like you and me, but all town mayors understood to make the best decisions for their town. So Rosenheim is today, although the big fleet of travellors is bypassing, a prosperity town and nice for vacation or visits.

For example, strangers could be confused by searching the railway station. If they think they have found it, it could be the town mayor's house. It is looking like a railway station and you are right, it is one. The first station in that town and whole area, buildt in 1858. The citizens of Rosenheim didn't destroy this historical building after a new place must be selected in reason of the tremendous growing railway traffic in the last century.

They bought it from the goverment, keep it, restore it with love and so, after my knowledge, Rosenheim is the only one town in Bavaria, the town mayor residents in a "railway station". (Maybe they want build sometimes a hidden connection to escape if necessary :-).

To reach Rosenheim you can use the railway from Munich or the highway Munich-Salzburg, exit Rosenheim. If you are coming by airplane, you can call me, I will receive you just on the arrival gate and then we will drive in a little more than one hour directly in that town. Could be sometimes a little longer, perhaps you know that in summer- and winter seasons thousands a day use that highway to go in vacation, but I know some hidden streets too.

Although the highway is near to that town, it is not loud and good for relaxing. They have in Rosenheim pedestrian areas, do not build skyscrapers and the traffic is well organized.

Rosenheim combines industry, administration, cultury and tourism. They have a branch high school for all wood crafts there, the university of Munich runs the hospital there for education, big exhibition and congress possibilites are offered and another excellent restaurated industrial building, the old railway-engine-house, has marvellous cultural exhibitions to show.

Rosenheim is a cross point, not only for the main European connections, also for vacation trips. In short time you can reach Salzburg, Munich, Innsbruck or even the Allgaeu. You have one lovely King's Palace in the near, the palace Herrenchiemsee. The other world known castles like Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein are in the Allgaeu area, reachable in about two hours by car.

The Alps you can nearly grip from your window, that's wonderful in all seasons, specially for skiing in winter times. But in Rosenheim they prepare also lanes for ski-walking. In summer a lot of marvellous lakes invite to swim, they have shooting-, tennis- and riding areas, nearly every sport is possible even gliding.

If you want do something for wellness, you can use some cure offers in the near located villages Bad Aibling ( swamp cures ) or Bad Endorf (thermal springs). Or you sail on the bavarian "ocean", the Chiemsee. What ever you want or need, I guess, you will find in Rosenheim a real center point for everything. Starting from 12th may till 5th november they have in Rosenheim a special exhibition sponsored by the State Goverment of Bavaria about the Romans and their empire from the "alps till the northern sea".

Specialized informations you can get by e-mail or you visit the homepage of Rosenheim. The people in the town offices are very nice and enjoy to help. That's a part of hospitality in Bavaria.
