    Germany


    Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

    Once marking the turbulent division of East and West Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate now stands at the head of a pedestrian plaza just blocks from the German parliament. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, a physical and social reinvention has taken place throughout the city, visible in the bold lines of new architecture juxtaposing mementos of eras past.


    Ballerinas, Berlin

    Ballerinas prepare to hit the stage at a theater in Berlin. In the past decade, an emergence of world-class ballerinas and choreographers has led to a rising interest in German ballet.

    Though post-Communist Germany has seen a rapid expansion of its capital and an embracing of modern architecture, many smaller towns—such as Wangen in the country’s south—preserve their cultural heritage with traditional storefronts and cobblestone alleys.



    Oktoberfest, Munich

    Originated in 1810 as a wedding celebration for two Bavarian royals, Oktoberfest now marks the start of the harvest season each year. Instead of gathering corn, though, participants in the two-week-long festival gather in Munich to consume some 1.8 million gallons (7 million liters) of beer produced by local breweries.

    Snow creates a winter wonderland scene near Linderhof Castle in Bavaria, Germany's largest state. Mountain peaks and lakes dot Bavaria, which shares a border with Austria, the Czech Republic, and Switzerland.



    Residenz Palace, Würzburg

    The extravagant rococo chapel of the Residenz Palace in Würzburg excites architecture buffs and novices alike. Designed by young architect Balthasar Neumann, the space surrounds visitors with an embrace of twisted columns and wavy walls punctuated by tall windows.



    Café, Berlin

    Two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the capital city of Germany has created its own blended culture in the art districts of Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte. A steady economic climb throughout Berlin has encouraged many small business owners to open shops in the city.



    Holocaust Memorial, Berlin

    Photograph by Per Olof Stoltz, My Shot

    Opened six decades after the end of World War II, Berlin’s Holocaust memorial draws visitors from all over the world who come to honor the approximately six million Jews killed during the war. A grid of 2,700 concrete slabs fills the five-acre (two-hectare) memorial site, creating a maze of alleyways for guests to explore.



    Market Goods, Berlin

    Originally born in the year 1200 as a pair of trading villages, Berlin still enjoys markets full of local produce and wares for sale.



    Potsdamer Platz, Berlin

    Once Europe’s liveliest intersection, Potsdamer Platz was reduced to rubble by Allied bombs and bisected by the Berlin Wall. Today, passersby can visit an outdoor exhibit displaying pieces of the wall that used to divide the country's capital.



    Hainich National Park, Thüringen

    Originally a military training camp for Soviet and German armies, Hainich National Park—set in the middle of a primeval forest in central Germany—now welcomes civilian visitors who walk its many trails.

    After being severely damaged during World War II bombings, the ornately decorated Katholische Hofkirche, or Catholic Court Church, underwent significant reconstructions to restore its roof and upper levels.

    Don't ask me about the 'Oktoberfest'. No clue why the world identifies us with a horde of drunk Bavarians.

    PS: if you want a real party with real straight folks, come to the Ruhr Area.
