This handsome peak has commanded the Bodenmais in Lower Bavarian for half a billion years.

Now someone has spotted a certain resemblance to a famous profile.

So for the coming year at least it is going to be designated the Richard-Wagner-Kopf.

    Waiting half a billion years for the right one. Wow!

      On the subject of the beast of Bayreuth – could a kind soul more technically adapt than I kindly guide me back to the online broadcast of Tristan (from BR Klassik)? I watched Acts 1 & 2 whilst packing for the Edinburgh Festival – and was saving Act 3 for my treat tonight….. now the replay link posted on this sight no longer works.

      Thanks for any help.

    Looks more like Alfred Hitchcock or a character drawn by German cartoonist Loriot.

      Lourdes pales into insignificance in comparison.

      I’ll wager that ‘Travel for the Arts’ has this in their brochures for 2016 already!
