When we think of beautiful lakes and stunning mountains, our minds instantly drift towards Switzerland. However, there’s another country in the heart of Europe that’s bursting with photogenic scenery - Germany! Sure, you might have heard of the Neuschwanstein Castle, the Cologne Cathedral, or the Museum Holstentor, but Germany is much more than its magnificent monuments or its great local beer. The country's picturesque countryside, in particular, is a sight for sore eyes.
Travel photographer Christine Madeux has attempted to showcase this hidden side of Germany through her lens. She spent 13 months living in the little-known Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and was overawed by the sights she came across. From beautiful snow-kissed mountain lakes to wildflower meadows, she captured the Alps of the country in their finest glory. These pictures are filled with such raw beauty that you won’t be able to take your eyes off of them. So, let’s enjoy the gorgeous landscapes and nature of Germany in the pictures below.
