Town of Mt Angel

Nestled between farmland and foothills, Mt. Angel is located 18 miles northeast of Salem on Highway 214. This little town, founded in the late 1800s by German settlers, has an Old World flavor which is heightened by the many Bavarian style storefronts and the beautiful Benedictine Abbey. They celebrate their German heritage each year during the Oktoberfest, held in September.

This is a town that should be visited at least once, and the Oktorberfest is a good time to check it out as i have to say we really enjoyed our 4 day stay there.

More to come.
