Fabulous Village in the Bavarian Alps

AlexArchitecture, Photography





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.

This unusual reception first invented by a local artist Franz Tsvink. As advertising himself, he decorated the walls of his house such unusual frescoes well and then orders him to fell one after another.
