Germany photography of your visit to this modern, but ancient land, this welcoming, but mysterious land, will easily show its long and many-layered history. It’s evident everywhere you look and point your digital camera. You certainly want Germany pictures of you and your family, or friends, enjoying all the cultural symbols of Germany’s more than 2,000 years of known history: cosmopolitan cities, castles, museums and historical sites. There is also an opportunity to take Germany photos that reveal the influences “before history:” fairy tales from a forgotten, magical age; mighty rivers that have served as highways for thousands of years; and merry festivals with pagan origins.
Before your journey into the German past, make room in your itinerary and Germany photography for Berlin. As a world capital, Berlin is a photographic treasure for the amateur or professional. Berlin, like other cities in its class, has found a way to integrate a modern architectural style with all the others throughout the city. You can capture Germany photos of the sophisticated end of the spectrum with spectacular shots of The Fernsehturm TV tower and the public-access interior of the Reichstag, with its incredible glass dome. Enter the Charlottenburg Palace and find yourself 400 years in the past. The elaborate style of the décor and furnishings are definitely Germany photos you’ll want to show your family and friends at home. That’s just the architecture of Berlin. You and your family must also find time to shoot Germany photography of your visits to the world-famous museums and galleries, the Berlin Zoo and the many gardens and open spaces.
The Germany photography you’re sure to treasure the most is when your family travels the German Fairytale Road. Your kids won’t believe that they are going to Sleeping Beauty's palace, Cinderella's castle and the enchanted tower where Rapunzel let down her hair. The Fairytale Road is more than 350 miles (600 kilometres) of quaint towns and villages where the Brothers Grimm were inspired by timeless sagas, myths and legends to write their popular tales. Your Germany photos of this adventure will show your children’s surprised and awesome expressions. As you drive through the lush countryside and dense forests and along quiet, meandering rivers, you’ll understand why people thought fairies and similar creatures roamed this land. They may still, so tell your kids to keep their cameras ready!
Another Germany photography adventure is a river cruise through the wine region of the Rhine and Moselle valleys. This is a trip that families, couples and honeymooners will enjoy, and find ample subject matter for many Germany photos. As you glide through the lush river valleys, you’ll see spectacular castles and palaces perched on cliff tops. Your cruise will stop at medieval villages and beautiful river towns where you can sample the greatest of German wines. Make sure you record all these sites and experiences in your Germany photography.
Oktoberfest in Munich is one of Germany’s great festival and the perfect location to take many Germany pictures of you joining the celebration. It’s a two-week whirlwind of traditional music and costumes, wurst, pretzels and a bottomless stein of beer. For a different kind of celebration and Germany photography of the country’s oldest folk pageant, travel to the small Bavarian border town of Furth im Wald for the Drachenstich, the dragon-slaying festival. The town immerses itself and its visitors in this 500-year-old tradition, culminating with a 54-foot (18 metre) fire-breathing dragon invading the streets, until a brave knight kills it. What an exciting closing to your Germany photography album.
