The windmill is interesting. I had visited an old fashioned Brewery where they make beer.

Autobahn.... really miss those drives.

The autobahn pic is amazing.

Its fun to drive in Autobahn. NO SPEED LIMIT. I drove VW and Renault 6 seater between 170 to 200 KMPH on Autohan. The sad part was, I could use my Indian driving lisence for 6 months than I should apply for German lisence which is not easy to get also its too costly.

The last photo is great. I loved the rail tracks to the right entering the tunnel. So picturesque.

Thanks MX6, pawan. This was taken in th Autobahn somewhere between Stuttgart and Nuremberg IIRC.

@pawan: Yes, 170-200 Kmph kind of speeds is easy on such roads even with 6 seaters like you mentioned. I remember crossing 210 Kmph on a VW Sharan - An Innova like car. The the truth is out there - no matter how fast you drive through these roads, there will be somebody who goes faster than you.

The credit for modern motorways, autobahns, interstates goes to Adolf Hitler!

Hitler's autobahn construction began in September 1933 under the direction of chief engineer Fritz Todt. The 14-mile expressway between Frankfurt and Darmstadt, which opened on May 19, 1935, was the first section completed under Hitler. By December 1941, when wartime needs brought construction to a halt, Germany had completed 2,400 miles (3,860 km), with another 1,550 miles (2,500 km) under construction.
As many American visitors had noted during the 1930's, the autobahn was built before the country had enough motor vehicles to justify the expense. Only the well off or powerful in Germany could afford automobiles. Hitler had highlighted this problem in a speech on March 3, 1934, at the Berlin International Automobile and Motor Cycle Show

There's a country who highlighted 75 years back. We have roads but not vehicles.
Here's a country struggling with automobiles but not enough roads!

Awe inspiring photo of Hitler himself being a part of the work.

Not glorifying Hitler. Just that there are good things done as well which needs to be highlighted!

OT

This song came to my mind when I read your post. (Hitler)



Once I came across a bunch of German colleagues eagerly watching this video and laughing inside office. Obviously most of the present generation doesn't like him.

Well. Couldn't enjoy the video much without subtitles. Any idea what it is supposed to convey?

No idea what it want to convey but when I forwarded it to my German manager, below is his reply.

It´created by Walter Moers - he is a famous german "underground" comic writer.

He can by quite blasphemous and is politically incorrect... ;-)

My next target is either Croatia - Plitvis Lake or Italy - Cinque Terre. Both are beatiful places.
