Hopfensee in Fuessen, Allgaue

We had a vacation in Fuessen, Allgaue in the state of Bavaria last August 2006. We stayed there for four days where I also spent my birthday. This photo below is the Hopfensee in Fuessen. We spent a walk here during our vacation. I love the scenery in this town where you can see the beauty of nature around especially the green trees during summer and the mountains that surround it.

Füssen is a town in Bavaria, Germany, in the district of Ostallgäu situated 5 kilometres (3 miles) from the Austrian border. It is located on the banks of the Lech river. The River Lech flows into the Forggensee. Füssen’s coat of arm shows a triskelion (three legs). It is a sister city to Helen, Georgia (USA).

It had been a settlement in Roman times on the Via Claudia Augusta, a road that leads southwards to northern Italy and northwards to the former regional capital of the Roman province called Raetia, the capital of which was Augusta Vindelicum today’s Augsburg. The original name of Füssen was “Foetes”, or “Foetibus”, which derives from Latin “Fauces”, meaning “gorge”, probably referring to the Lech gorge. In Late Antiquity Füssen was the home of a part of the Legio III Italica, which was stationed there to guard the important trade route over the Alps. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%BCssen
