2810 GERMANY (Bavaria) - Mittagberg


Mittagberg (Midday mountain) is a mountain (1451m) located in the Allgäu Alps in Bavaria, just south of Immenstadt, and is part of the Naturparks Nagelfluhkette. Its vertical separation is at least 31m, with a prominence of 500m when using the Bärenköpfle as reference. When looking at the mountain from Immenstadt, the sun at noon is right on top of the peak, giving it its name "Mittag" based on the German word for noon (mid day). There are multiple hiking trails that lead up to the peak of the mountain.

About the stamps
The first stamp belong to the set Blumen, about which I wrote here. About the second stamp, issued in 2012 to mark the Day of Children, I wrote here.
