Germany pictures. This gallery displays the variety of German townscape: from Frankfurt's office towers reaching for the sky all the way to small and quaint villages of rural, from the transformed Reichstag in Berlin to the winding, cobbled streets of Passau. Many pictures show the rural areas of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, following the bicycle route along the river Danube (Donau-Radwanderweg), all the way from its source in the Black Forest (Schwarzwald).
