Photos From Germany

 

In the course of the twelve or so years I lived in my favourite country Germany, time which was spent mostly in studying in German academic institutions, I had the opportunity to travel extensively in this great European land. I had the good fortune to visit many beautiful places and these memories I deeply cherish. My German photo collection is comparatively "small" though. The photos in this section all date from the period 1998 to 2005. I hope you enjoy them. More will be added with the passage of time.

Note that if you want to download some or all photos contained in my webalbum for use on your own website, another website or for any other purpose, feel free to do so, but you must indicate clearly that you got the photos from my website.

THE GREAT CATHEDRAL TOWN SPEYER

Here I share with you a number of photos I took in this marvellous old town of some 50,000 inhabitants in the Palatinate region of Germany where I lived and studied for over five years.

Founded in the Roman colonial days, and one of the most important towns in medieval Germany with an eventful history, Speyer has got to be one of the quaintest places in the world.

CASTLE TRIFELS IN THE PALATINATE

A medieval castle of immense historical significance near Speyer, I drove up to this structure aloft a high hill with two colleagues on an enchantingly foggy winter morning. We stayed there a couple of hours and were the only visitors at the time!   

 

HIKING IN THE PALATINATE WOODS

I rarely miss up on a chance for a good outing in the countryside. When the hike leads through the charming Palatinate woods, the temptation becomes simply too much to resist!

 

PARTY TIME AT THE STUDENT HOSTEL IN SPEYER

Organizing parties is a highlight of student life. And in an open and comparatively friendly place like Speyer, student parties can become quite large and lively events as you will see in this photo set :=) 

 

OUTING TO WÜRZBURG

One of Germany's more prettier and historically important towns, Würzburg in Bavaria State has much to offer in the way of culture and architecture.

 

GERMANY's MOST ENCHANTING MEDIEVAL TOWN(ROTHENBURG OB DER TAUBE)

This has got to be one of the prettiest places in the entire Republic! If you want to step back centuries in time and enjoy it thoroughly, then Rothenburg ob der Taube should rank number one on your destination list.

 

FORTRESS EHRENBREITSTEIN AND THE DEUTSCHE ECK IN KOBLENZ

A very old town which was an important urban and strategic centre in its day, and located at the confluence of two major rivers, Koblenz has some incredible sights to offer of which I am offering you glimpses of two.

 

STUDY VIST TO THE GERMAN FEDERAL CONSTITUTIONAL COURT IN KARLSRUHE

One of Germany's holiest institutional cows, this Court has passed innumerable landmark judgements in the course of its eventful history.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE GIERSTEINE

On Halloween day, 2002, I had an irresistible urge to visit an ancient pagan site. Quick research showed me that the Giersteine was the best place that offered itself in a 200-kilometer radius from Speyer. I'm sure glad I didn't bump into Halloween wierdo Michael Myers there!  

 

MY RIGOROSUM

The nerve-wrecking climax of my doctoral programme at the German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer. Here, in May 2004, you see me sitting in the "Rigorosum" (oral examination) which is a precondition for the award of the doctoral degree. Some real hard talk taking place here in front of the academic inquisition!  

 

GERMANY 2006:

PHOTOS FROM MY FIRST VISIT IN JANUARY / FEBRUARY  

Germany, you cannot escape from me, not even in the middle of one of your coldest winters on record! I'm back again to photograph you and this time I'm doing it with a vengeance!

 

GERMANY 2006:

PHOTOS FROM MY SECOND VISIT IN SEPTEMBER

In September 2006 I travelled for the first time to Germany's Eastern part. It was a memorable trip. The photos in this section were taken in Berlin, Dresden, Halle an der Saale, Merseburg, and at the region's largest shopping mall NovaEventis.

Many websites offer a wealth of information on Germany for vistors. One such site which recently caught my eye is Dodo.com. New and beautifully designed, it's a site which I recommend you visit. Simply click on the image on the left to be transported to Dodo's high-flying world!
