Jaw drop. How can that be?! Ooohhhh... I must remember to rename the file name of the photo that I upload! Ah, haha!
Well, you are 100% correct! It is at Hoehnschwangau! You get bragging rights and points for the correct answer. And I am not really surprised that you got it anyway, you seem to know A LOT about Bavaria!
(I'll come up with another one... and fellow Insiders, be careful what you name your photos!!)
The Alphorn is an instrument that in times past had frequently been used as a signal-like instrument in many valleys throughout Europe, and also used in villages perhaps as early as the middle ages for a substitute for church bells. It's origin is difficult to determine. It is carved out of a single piece of wood, with the exception of the bell piece on the end which is affixed to the end. There are no holes anywhere on the sides of the horn, which gives it that pure harmonic sound of an open pipe. In the hands of a skilled composer or arranger, the natural harmonics can be used to create anything from a haunting melancholy to a charming pastoral flavor. The 7th - 11th harmonic notes were said to be "God's Notes." The remainder of the Chromatic Scale created by keys, valves, slides and other methods of changing the qualities of the simple open pipe were said to be just the sounds of "mere mortals."
