Personal Travel Pictures  –  Bruce McKay

 

 

Germany

 

This is one of the largest (and I think most interesting) sections here.  The photos were gathered over the course of three years.  I've divided them into parts (South, Central, North), with web pages providing details about each.

My German travels started in Southern Germany, with a guided tour of the Bavarian castles of King Ludwig and his family, and visits to other Bavarian highlights like Mt. Zugspitze and the floral island of Mainau in Lake Constance.

I had such a great time exploring the castles in Bavaria that I returned for a guided rivers and castles tour of Central Germany, exploring the Rhine and its tributaries.  I cruised on the Rhine, saw ancient castles on the Rhine, Moselle, and Neckar Rivers, visited medieval towns like Rothenburg, and sampled the products from the hillside vineyards.

In 2005 I had a few days in Northern Germany to visit Leipzig, Berlin, and Hamburg.  I didn't have time to see them as thoroughly as the other parts of Germany, but I did see fascinating sites in each city, history and reconstruction in both Leipzig and Berlin, and the continuing seagoing traditions of Hamburg.

Links to the three section pages are at the left.  Direct links to the three Picture Files are below the Sample Images.  A combined Table of Contents is provided below that, both in on-screen and in printable forms.
