Aachen

This is a very cute historical place on the east side of Germany where reside a lot of students and where a lot is going on. I was lucky, like very very lucky to experience “The Cube“, a virtual reality system that immerses you in a very detailed 3D user interface. I also met with

Dortmund

This German area is famous for the universities these days but walking through the city centre, I also note a good sense of culture. I have however never seen the centre free of road work so I guess I will return there one day because this seems to be also a proof of the dynamic

München 2018

I have been spoiled by this city to a point that I cannot be objective about it. First time I was in Munich was in 1996, then 2003… Since I have to say, friends made there are unbelievable and I can’t wait to meet them again. Example: my super German teacher Silvia: I met her

Koln

Quick snaps from 2018. It was unusual to see this city so cold and empty. I usually love the ambiance now I share the sober side of it.   I also invite you to visit my previous gallery with a visit at night

Hannover

Minimalistic, Modern, metropole of the Midland, Hannover smartly mixed modern architecture and historical art into a well organised society. I remember there making one of my best 200m run performances as I ha dot catch a train… the kind of 6h train you cannot miss. I must thank Deutsche Bahn for being late again on

Hamburg by night

Festive, impressive, there is always something to do in Hamburg. Red light is big and attractive for many, it is also well insulated from the rest of the city so if you are motivated by another type of ambiance it is very easy to reach another location and still have fun.

Hamburg city centre, parks and gardens

This city is very very clean, well organised and quiet. I was impressed by the amount of silent vehicles in circulation in 2018. It is futuristic.

Hamburg – the harbour side

It took me ages to get here but I don’t regret a minute. This city is beautiful. Clear, quiet relax, modern, very cultural and organised. Walking in the street feels great because its quiet and very clean. You will also easily fell for the charms of the canals and multiple water ways.

Koln, when the night comes

Koln (Cologne) made me laugh last time time I went there. Imagine a whole day of transports to reach the destination and the first place you see is a pub called the Corkonian. Anyway, if you have more time, the Cathedral is beautiful, the old town as well and carnival is a must do here!

Silence is Darmstadt’s gold

Just a little bit of nostalgia as this city reflect for some the rhythm of January … I’ll Explain: This city is crowded with approximately 150 000 inhabitant, no doubt. It’s also 30 minutes away from Frankfurt it remain a great point of interest for any german worker. But the main impression I keep is
