Oberammergau – a small alpine village, which attracted us with their fabulous painted facades . Just a few narrow streets, but every house like a work of art. All murals are painted very high quality, crafted shadows and contours. It seems as if the house is really decorated columns, shutters and other decorative elements. Basically this traditional Bavarian designs, scenes from fairy tales or religious motives.
