Guess what best-selling book in German language was written in Landsberg? It wasn’t Goethe or Brecht. No, it was Hitler who scribbled here his abhorrent book Mein Kampf.
Further back in the past during Roman times Landsberg am Lech functioned as an important point on the Via Claudia Augusta, a Roman trade route which came up from Italy and headed towards Augsburg.
But nowadays, there is not much left of the busy and sometimes troubled past but the old walls and buildings bare silent witness to its history.
On our visit this magnificent town was dipped in a golden glow during the evening hours and dark clouds threatened to surprise with a summer thunderstorm. I grabbed my camera to capture the wild romantic, dramatic scenery.
Enjoy the pictures and immerse in the cobble stone roads of this gorgeous town in Bavaria.
Have you ever seen such a tidy, colorful town?
