The stone part of Krämerbrücke was built in 1325 but the houses located there have continuously been inhabited during the past 500 years – longer than any other bridge in Europe! If not for the modern outfits of passers-by, you could actually feel a little like you are still living in traditional medieval German city.

The Olympic Tower is 291 meters high and was opened in 1968. The Tower was built as a part of the Olympic Park for the Summer Olympics in 1972. Since it has been opened to the public, it has already garnered over 42 million visitors. It’s no wonder that the view from above Munich would be spectacular there as well.
Once we returned to the car, at the base of the Alpine foothills of which Neuschwanstein Castle stood, I looked once more behind me. The Bavarian Castle looked slightly isolated on the edge of the rock. I then looked at the sky above – do you see it too?
It was our first, long road trip when we travelled through Bavaria and Italy. Having a car with us meant that we could reach more remote places, for example, a small baroque Church of St. Coloman in Schwangau, which stood in the middle of a field. There were no tour bus stops and no cars slowing down so we laid our picnic and just enjoyed the setting sun.
This was an unusual spot to capture photos of the Berlin panorama. I had a meeting with a fellow photographer, when it started pouring down with rain and after just a few moments of hesitation, we finally decided to try and take some photos to see what would happen. We made an appointment at Storkower Straße from which you can see the skyline of Berlin; with the TV Tower majestically prevailing the line of the horizon.
