Sachsenhausen

Main entrance


Execution trench




Soviet liberation memorial

Flossenburg concentration camp

Many people doesn't realize but I'm a HUGE FAN of war movies.
I also share big interest in holocaust films. Schindler's List (1993), The pianist(2002) and Life is Beautiful(1997) are my all time favorites...
I've visited several concentration camps around Germany.
Looking at the old buildings and rusted crematorium, It's suprising to know elderly Nazi war criminals are still being tracked down and brought to justice. It gives me chills just thinking about how evil human can be toward other human being.

"NEVER AGAIN"

 

Headquaters building

Where a ramp used to be... It was used to move bobies from upper camp to the crematorium

Hohenzollern Castle

Eagle's gate: the enterance to the castle


Fall Neuschwanstein VS Winter Neuschwanstein

Fall 2007
Winter 2010

Hohenschwangau from Neuschwanstein

Either it's srounded by green forest or covered in snow,
 beautiful scenery of Neuschwanstein will satisfy any tourists' fantasy...
but make sure to dress warm if you are planning to visit in winter.
30~40mins walk up to the castle from the ticket office can be pretty miserable in the cold weather.
