We led a trip to Germany in May of 2019 with a group of Urban Planning Students from Ball State University. We visited Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Duisburg, Hamburg, Berlin and Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the Zugspitze (Germany’s highest peak in the Alps, on the border with Austria). These are some of my favorite images from the trip.

This cable car holds the world record for the longest free-span cable car at 10,541 ft.
