August 23 Kottenheim / Maria Laach

Next up was finding our way to Kottenheim,  in the Eifel, and Gertrud’s cousin. 2018 was the year for the biennial potato pancake festival there, the Kröbbelchesfest.

Before the festival began, we visited Maria Laach, a nearby monastery. It’s a huge place, including a restaurant, a hotel, a gift shop and a sculpture garden in addition to the monastery itself.
