2018 Germany Trip
This fall I was able to take a 10 day trip to Switzerland and Germany. We flew in and out of Zurich, Switzerland and then traveled by bus to Munich, south to the Alps and west to the Black Forest before heading back south to Zurich. Due to the nature of this trip, the photos are more of a travelogue than my usual strictly landscape photographs.
Our first stop on Tuesday, September 25th was Rohrschach, Switzerland where we spent a night right on Lake Constance. Wednesday morning, the 26th, we departed for Munich. After a drive through the old downtown, past Schloss Nymphenburg, we had lunch and spent the afternoon at Oktoberfest. On Thursday the 27th, we had a walking tour of Munich's city center followed by a trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial site after lunch. Friday the 28th, we toured Schloss Linderhof before heading to our hotel in Oberammergau. Saturday the 29th took us to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, then lunch in Mittenwald followed by a tour of Kloster Benidiktbeuern- a former Benedictine monastery. On Sunday, the 30th, we traveled back to Lake Constance and had lunch and a tour of Lindau. From there, we headed west along Lake Constance to the Black Forest before arriving at the hotel in Titisee. The final day of our trip, Monday, October 1st took us to an open air farm museum, Vogtsbauernhof. The site comprises 8 original historical farmhouses dating back to the 1500's, as well as numerous smaller farm buildings all collected from sites around the Black Forest. After that, we visited the Dorotheenhutte glass blowing facility and museum.
The gallery, samprangerphotography.com/germany, is in chronological order and comprises photos taken with my cell phone as well as my 'real' camera. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them! Here's a link to a Google map of the places we visited, in case you're interested: Trip Map
