The Rest Of Vacation Pictures


  1. Sanne

    Some questions

    Where were these photos taken, in Germany?

    What is the area in the 6th photo?

    Do you know what it says on the rather impressive metalwork on the 7th photo?

  2. Mark,

    yes, all these pics were taken in Germany. The tower in the photo n7 was built on top the highest mountain in the area (750m) which is actually a volcano to honour the last German Emperor in 1901 or around that time. We climbed both the volcano and the tower.

    Pic n6 is from Trier which used to be a Roman capital (Augusta Treverorum), it's a Roman amphitheater which also made part out of the defence complex of the city. It was incorporated into city walls.

    I hope that helps!

    Thank you for that!

    I keep forgetting that Germany west of the Rhine was part of the Roman Empire.

  4. You are welcome, Mark!

    Yes, they have lots of Roman stuff over there:) Romans used to have military bases all over the area, too.

  5. Beautiful places. Thanks for sharing!
