It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the city flag of Wolfratshausen is a Wolf.
This town in Bavaria has a long history and is set up for tourists who come here in masses all year long.
One of the reasons that it had such a successful history is because it’s very accessible. On the Isar and Loisach rivers, these rivers used to transport goods to other areas of the province. Now the rivers are used for boat tours. You won’t be on a regular boat, but on a raft. So don’t wear your nicest clothes, because you might end up a bit wet!
