Looks lovely, Cindy. I’ve not been to Germany, this shows me that it’s definitely worth a visit 🙂
It is truly lovely and definitely worth visiting. The only problem is, you’ll want to go back!
It’s pretty indeed, Cindy. Hope your Christmas has been joyful.
Thank you Cynthia and look forward to spending 2016 with you my friend~
I love picturesque places, Cindy. Your photos are gorgeous <3
Awww, I am so glad to have met you this year my friend and look forward to 2016 with you!
Back to you, Cindy 🙂 Always a pleasure to read your posts and to admire your photos <3
Pretty, indeed! Happy New Year, Cindy!
The very best 2016 to you my friend!
Love the colorful streets.
Aren’t they wonderful! So much fun to wander down~
Gives meaning to the term picturesque. 🙂
It does indeed. Can’t wait to see what mischief we will get into in 2016 my friend!
You speak for yourself, temptress. 😀
Beautiful! Can I ask what camera you are using?
Thank you and yes, of course. It is a Sony HX400.
… and Happy New Year to you too. 🙂
Passau, is a beautiful city. I stood there at the river bank for a long time. It’s impressive. Have you heard of the Niebelungen Sage?
Yes, I am familiar with the mythos and it’s origin, the story and the location on The Danube. My husband is a intense Wagner fan and I have been through all the Ring cycles and am very familiar with Wagner’s retelling of the story. It is quite beautiful as is wonderful Passau and the meeting of the three rivers.
I got tortured with Wagner in school. Hated it then, learned to love it later on 🙂
Believe me I empathize! <3
These photographs are awesome, Cindy. 🙂
I so look forward to another year with you wonderful Ranu! Happy New Year my friend~ <3 <3
Lovely to see it through your eyes and photos! All my best wishes for the New Year! Kisses from Brussels xxx
Beautiful Lia & Brussels! Hope you both have the Happiest New Year! <3
Beautiful shots! They make me want to go there.
I hope you go because I want to see your photos!
Gorgeous pictures. Beautiful streets. Thank you.
Awww thank you my friend and the very best 2016 to you! <3
I am confined to bed, so the only way I can travel is via photos and videos. These are stunning, cozy, inviting. Thank you for taking me on a lovely journey.
You just made me very happy that I posted. You make my journey to much better when you come along with me. The very best 2016 to you. <3
Lovely! Looks like a century in the past. No cars, just bikes.
It is so nice to feel this connection to the past. Looking forward to 2016 with you Brenda~ <3
Happy 2016, Cindy! May you have a happy, prosperous and far-ranging one. ;-D
Cheers and Happy New Year to you.
Back at you my friend and be well~
You just made my day! I am from Germany (I live in Israel but I still have family in Germany).
Wish you a great 2016!
Awwww, so glad you enjoyed! It makes me glad I posted. I have another blogging friend who is German and lives in Israel. I hope you get to visit your family often and Happy New Year!
Brings back fond memories – praying that your new year will be filled with blessings!
Thank you for your thougthfulness!
Beautiful pictures, all. With the first three, in neighbourhoods like those, who needs a front lawn you have to rake for leaves and mow? In photograph 3, are those hawks soaring high above?
Merry Christmas and the best of all New Years.
I agree with you about the lawns and they definitely weren’t in vogue in the middle ages thank goodness! The Holler is lawn free and hence lawn mower free. The birds were not hawks, possibly magpies but I am not sure. Wishing you the very best New Years!
Another one on my list, your photos only inspire me to want to go more!
Oh good, because you will be very glad when you go! 🙂
I keep asking myself “what IS it about these cities.?”…a resonance of Grimm’s Fairy tales? The beautiful colored and shaped buildings? The light? I’ve decided it’s the streets, those impeccably clean, old fashioned pavers… 🙂 ( for lack of any other good reasonable reason). So lovely, Cindy….Happy New Year!
The streets are simply fascinating. They invited you to wander and get lost. I think the only time I enjoy getting lost is in these old medieval cities. Because every twist and turn brings more fascination. But you are also right-on about the fairy tale quality of these old German and Austrian cities. You do feel as if you have stepped into Sleeping Beauty land and your eyes are ever alert for the evil queen! Be well my friend. <3
Lovely images Cindy. Happy New Year to you too!
Thank you so much & cheers to you~
And Cheers to you too!
Beautiful! My favorite is that line of houses up above the river.
Awwww, thank you. Storybook looking isn’t it~
You’re welcome. And it really is!
So kind. <3
Cindy, these are such charming and beautiful photographs. I love the colors and I especially love the one with the houses and the lake with the reflection.
I am so glad! I thought the houses all lined up looked like something out of a children’s story book. Pleased it resonated with you~
This is so lovely. Thank you and Happiest & Healthiest New Year to you!
And a Happy New Year to you also Cindy. The first one reminds me of the university town of Tubingen. Very pretty and very cold in the winter. Sunshine never reaches the streets between the stone buildings. Coffee and cocoa houses do a thriving business with the Christmas shoppers who are trying to get warm. Thanks, once more, for the tour.
I know you spent a lot of time in Germany Wally and have wonderful memories. I love traveling with you my friend. The very best New Years to you and your family. <3
You give life to my daydreams with your beautiful images…you make a day joyful! May your life continue to be blessed amazingly in this coming New Year! Hugs Cindy!
Every time I read a post of yours, or read one of your comments Wendell, my face and my heart are smiling. Blessed New Years to you and your loved ones~
Well, the real Germany in the big cities like Frankfurt, Cologne and their suburbs has got the ugliest regions worldwide. You spot the highlights and then you say: *Oh, what a lovely country.* But ist is not.
I love both Cologne and Frankfurt and tend to photograph the old city centers. I don’t seek out ugly areas to photograph, but you should feel free too. I like all creative photography even that which focuses on the unpleasant, like Vivian Maier for example.
Well, I am not a fan of Germany at all, but I hink in comparision to other countries the Germany cities are quite ugly. Too much was destroyed in WW2, what was beautiful.
Those narrow roads make me shiver, Cindy! No wonder bicycles are so popular — can you imagine two cars trying to squeeze through at the same time?! Happy 2016 to you and yours!
Sometimes cars are on streets like these and pedestrians press themselves against the walls! I always watch them park! Amazing…..
Health, Wealth and Happiness for the New Year Cindy.
xxx Massive Hugs xxx
And to you and yours David! The best of the best~

I always want to do beautiful places justice so thank you for this & cheers to you~
Happy Holidays! I was in Germany for New Year’s Eve two years ago, your pictures bring back pleasant memories.
Love triggering positive memories and so happy you were there!
Wow! I guess cars don’t travel down those narrow streets… What a wonderland!
Some of them cars do and it can be quite tricky! It is fairytale land. Cheers my friend~
Fantastic! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Wonderful to hear from you! Heading over to your blog. I haven’t seen your posts in my reader……
I am so happy to be able to continue to enjoy God’s gifts through your lens!
And I am doubly blessed to have a friend like you Anitonette. All the best to you and your wonderful family in 2016~ <3
Lovely photos of places I’d love to see. Best wishes for a wonderful 2016!
Back to U x 2 and look foward to following your adventures in 2016!
Thank you so much and Happy New Year!
I love the intimate beauty of these town streets
They are magical aren’t they, especially at dusk when the lights just turn on! Happy New Year!
Happy New Year, Cindy
Gorgeous, totally charming – now I want to go there! It reminds me of the old town in Stockholm. Beautiful photos Cindy.
These European old towns are so wonderful. I love staying in the old town centers in 600 year old hotels. Nothing better. I wonder when you will be going????? Can’t wait to read and see your posts. Hugs to you both~
Fantastic! Thank you for sharing this with us. Peace.
Thank you more for the kind appreciation and Peace to all~
So colorful! It’s no wonder such scenery inspires so many painters. And you sure have a way of capturing these picture perfect places with photography as well Cindy! Happy New Year! ~Lynn
I so look forward to 2016 with you Lynn. It would not be the same without you my friend. Only the best for you in the new year~ <3
Lovely places, Cindy. It looks like something from a fairy tale. I can understand why you’d want to go back some day. 🙂 — Suzanne
Yes, certain places keep drawing me back and there is the schnitzel too!!! 😉
Very pretty!! Happy New Year to you too, Cindy!
Looking very forward to following your adventures in the New Year!
Me too to following yours!
Such charming villages, indeed pretty as a picture! Happy New Year, Cindy!
Happy & Healthy New Year Eliza!
Whoa – love the colored buildings – and the narrow streets! Cheers to U too Cindy!
I love your beautiful photos. Happy New Year to you Cindy!
So thoughtful and so appreciated!
Delightful as always! ♡ (´▽`ʃƪ) ♡
Happy New Year you cool cat!
Happy Mew Year, my friend!

Wunderschöne Bilder, viele Grüsse aus der Schweiz. Wünsche Dir einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr, mögen dich Gesundheit und Gottes Segen begleiten. Ernst
Danke schoen. Segne Sie und gluckliches neues Jahr mein Freund Ernst!
I am completely charmed by these lovely scenes. And what is that little black figure painted on the wall in the second photo? A cat?
I am so pleased and yes, I think it is a kitty-kat. It looked Banksyish to me. I did photograph quite a few Bansky’s in Amsterdam.
So beautiful 😊
So glad and cheers to you!
It was so fun being there during the holiday season~
I want to live in that house! Lovely photos as always. Wishing you all the best for 2016!
Hah! You and me both! That is EXACTLY what I was thinking when I photographed that gorgeous house! 🙂
All those streets and buildings look like something out of a fairy story. They’re all so quaint, and old-fashioned that I suspect they’re cocooned in a time-warp from several centuries ago!
Exactly, and that is just how you feel walking the cobblestones, especially at dusk during Christmastime!
Happy New Year to you and yours Cindy! May it be full of wonderful surprises. 😀
Cheers to you Cate and only the best in 16! <3
All the best to you too for happy blogging in 2016!
I will be happy blogging with you! <3
You sure are good at finding beauty wherever you are Cindy. Thanks and Happy New Year!
Thank you more for such a thoughtful comment & cheers to you!
I love Germany, and all those beautiful houses! Great photos Cindy. Thank you for sharing them with us <3
Loved your year in photos too Maria. Be well~
Thank you! Be well my friend.
Great photos! Happy New Year to you too!
Cheers & thank you! <3
I just love those cobblestone streets! Beautiful picture of Germany, you captured her brilliance!
Happy New Year!
She is a beautiful country and thank you!
Beautiful photos Cindy 😀
Awwww, so appreciated! <3
Oh, I love those narrow little streets with the bicycles and the different shapes, colors, and roofs of the buildings…like a child’s blocks lined up in play. And, of course, who can resist a hilltop castle? Magical. Happy New Year!
You have a wonderful way with words. I loved the instant imagery your comment provoked, and of course, you are right. I certainly cannot resist a hilltop castle! 🙂
Stunning captures Cindy. I especially love the first two street scenes. Very inspiring!
Happy New Year when it comes!!
The curved line of houses along a street was an impressive photograph, Cindy. It captured the tightness and closeness of the houses and shops. Your water reflection of those beautifully colored houses is also one that really caught my eyes. I hope you have a fantastic and joyous new year, Cindy. 🙂
I wish you the very best in 2016 Robin and I look forward to sharing the year with you my friend. Cheers & be well~
I just love the color of the buildings. Why oh why can’t we do more of that in the US? Thanks especially for the walk down the narrow road/path. –Curt
I think the same thing every time I travel and return to all the beige on beige and box buildings made of glass. So pleased you walked along with me Curt~
Gorgeous pictures! Love the colors so pretty and the little cobblestone paths in between the houses! So quaint and pretty!
Thank you! Quaint and pretty is a perfect descriptor of these very old German cities.
So beautiful, I would love to walk down those streets!
Absolutely stunning photos of Deutschland, Cindy. The one with the buildings lined up and reflected in the river gave me a gasp of astonishment. Frohes neues Jahr!
Oh how lovely! Danke schoen und Frohe neues Jahr mein lieber Freund.
😀 bitte 😀
Have a lovely one… well captured once again… 😀
U2 + Thank u!
wünsche schon jetzt einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr 2016
Vielen dank! Frohe neue Jahr mein lieber Freund~
Happy New Year, Cindy! Hugs.
Visa versa 2 U X 2! <3
Absolutely beautiful, Cindy! So colourful and vibrant…. 🙂
Very pleased you enjoyed and thank you!
The pristine quality is outstanding! Cheers to historical beauty & those who maintain it for posterity! Thank you all, and TY Cindy for these gorgeous pics!
Awwww, sweet Resa. The bestest best 2016 to you my wonderful friend~ <3
Enjoy your night. Pretty lady
And you too my beautiful friend! <3
En el Norte de Europa, las casas están pintadas de colores. Supongo que es para dar un toque brillante a esos días grises del invierno, y creo que lo consiguen. Me ha gustado mucho tu selección de fotos.
Que tengas un feliz 2016, amiga. <3 <3 <3
Sí, creo que tienes razón porque cuando usted ir más allá del norte, Suecia, Finlandia y Noruega, los colores Haz aún más brillante que añade brillo al paisaje de invierno crudo. Más feliz y saludable año nuevo mi amiga. <3 <3 <3
You find the beauty every where you go Cindy. May 2016 bring you lots of joy and health and happiness. Love from Pommepal Pauline xxx
And so we start our fourth virtual year together Pauline. I cannot wait to follow you on your excellent adventures in 2016. Healthy, Happy 2016 my friend. <3

I love Germany. I’ve been four or five times.
You sound like me! My husband has been ten or so times and I can never pass him up as we always go together~
Have you been to Aachen?
What a picturesque place ~ love the first shot with the bicycle riding down the narrow lane…feels like one could be back in the 17th century (living in one of those great doll houses). I am off to Munich around the middle of January, so hope to see some of the sites there (and drink the great German beer along with a sausage or three). Hope you had a great holiday season Cindy.
Munich is an interesting city and I look forward to seeing your photographic impressions. In January you will have all the black, white and grey contrasts with the snow which I have never seen. It should be beautiful. Enjoy!
I have a cousin who was born there & lives there. The last time I saw him – I was like 15-16 (like 30 years ago). He & his mom came to the US to visit. I hope to be able to visit Germany (& my cousin) some day. Right now – we keep in touch via social media!
It is so much fun to visit another country where family or friends are living. I do hope you go, and post about it!
