The dream of flying...

As a child I dreamed of flying. A lot of years later I was able to fulfill this dream and to fly with a hot air ballon. It was a wonderful trip over the Swabian Alb in the middle of a golden autumn...

"Schloss Linderhof" (Bavaria)

Situated near the border to Austria King Ludwig II. of Bavaria built a dream castle. The construction works started in 1869 and ended in 1886. The Castle is really impressive with it´s perfect embedding into the landscapes around.There is a huge park around with many golden and "kitschy" statues and pavilions. King Ludwig II. liked such things because he had some more castles like Linderhof ( for example Neuschwanstein).

The Old Town hall of Lindau was bulit in 1422 as a gothic building. Later it was reconstructed with Elements of the Renaissance. Today it is one of the tourist magnets of this very nice town at the Lake Constance. The painting at the building represents the history of Lindau and was made in the 19th Century.
