After a long and tiring journey from Bad Honnef to Uebersee in Bavaria the only thing left for us to do was to do our food shopping and have a good night sleep. The motorway from from Wuerzburg all the way to Munich is a disaster at the moment. There are so many construction sites that it took us nearly ten hours for a journey that should have taken six and a half hours. Some might say that the current minister for transportation is from Bavaria. There is a lot of money infested into the Bavarian Motorways. That was the 29.07.2021.
The next day the weather was so nice that we decided to go to the Chiemsee and the landlady of our holiday flat recommended the beach bath in Uebersee. So we finally did that. The kids and I walked the two miles to the beach and found a nice spot to rest. The way along the lake has a nice biking track all around the lake. The tour all around the lake is 60km though and maybe nothing for a family with kids that is untrained for these tours. In Uebersee there is also a cool beach bar directly next to the lake where you can have drinks and watch the fantastic sunset.
Well we were at the lake bath and it is perfect for families with kids. You have all the facilities you need and the water is not very deep for a long time. My kids saw people on standup paddling surfboards and found out that one could rent them just around the corner. So we did that for some hours and they absolutely loved it.
First it was a bit like a paddling boat for them. Later when I was together with them we went further out into the lake and we used the board like a little pontoon to jump into the water. They could have done this all day. We had a really great time… and when it comes to myself…. also a sunburn.
