Posing with the United Buddy Bears in Berlin

One of the few remaining parts of Berlin's division.  On his first visit
Chris actually passed through here while going from West to East Berlin.

The Brandenberg Gate

The Olympic Stadium in Garmisch.  It now hosts ski-jumping competitions.

At the summit of the Wank mountain near Garmisch

The Altes Rathaus in Bamberg.  It was built in the middle of the river so it
could service both halves of the city without appearing to favor either one.

I just loved these!  Legoland, near Ulm, is full of Lego creatures (and objects too!).

Neuschwanstein castle, last (and most famous) of "Mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaria's castles.  Unfortunately, he died before completing it.

The Frauenkirche in Nuremberg, built in the 14th century

Every day at noon, the figures on this clock act out
the story of the Golden Bull of 1356 (whatever that is).

The Porta Nigra in Trier, built by the Romans about 200 AD.

The Neumunster Church in Wurzburg, built on the burial site of the Irish monk St. Kilian.
