Wieskirche or The Pilgrimage Church of Wies interior in Bavaria, Germany.

Wieskirche or The Pilgrimage Church of Wies

Wieskirche or The Pilgrimage Church of Wies is still not typically a touristic attraction in Bavaria. It remotely stands at the feet of the Alps and is a UNESCO World Heritage, which I liked the most – with a background story but still undiscovered by photographers.

Banz Abbey (in German Kloster Banz), known also as the Banz Castle is one of the hidden pearls of Bavaria in Germany. Previously Benedictine monastery nowadays serves as a conference centre or a museum of fossils and curiosities such as Egyptian Mummies.

The Nuremberg Castle: Imperial Castle (Kaiserburg), Burgraves' castle (Burggrafenburg) and “Imperial City”; Germany

The Nuremberg Castle | Nuremberg, Germany

The Nuremberg Castle (in German Nürnberger Burg) is one of the most prominent medieval fortifications in Germany and one could say even in Europe. Some sources say that the castle is representing the power and importance of the Holy Roman Empire and the German Nation.

Krämerbrücke (Merchants Bridge) in Erfurt, Germany.

Krämerbrücke | Erfurt, Germany

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.

Munich Skyline and The Olympiaturm (Olympic Tower in Olympic Park), Germany.

Skyline and The Olympic Tower | Munich, Germany

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.

Neuschwanstein Castle during the summer months, Bavaria in Germany.

Neuschwanstein Castle | Bavaria, Germany

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?

St. Coloman Church, Schwangau in Bavaria, Germany.

St. Coloman Church | Schwangau, Germany

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.

Berlin sunset panorama at Storkower Straße, Germany.

Panorama from Storkower Straße | Berlin, Germany

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.
