The "Wartburg" at Eisenach. One of Germys most famous fortress. Here Luther found shelter.
The "Trail of German Entity" connects the most eastern German city (Goerlitz) with the most western one (Aachen).
It is a 1080 km long trail that you can walk, binded by Rennsteig/Rothaarsteig/Kammweg and others.
You cross the former GDR border a couple of times and pass the most interesting landscapes of Germany.
The tour also shows German assets aside of the trail, most trekkers do not access these due to the distance.
But most of them are within 20-50km awy of the original trail.
All images were taken in 2015, 25 years after the German reunification- a very remakable timestamp though.
The project not only is a geographical profile of Germany, but also a historical and social one.
There will be a DVD with the interactive tour and a booklet app. end 2015/beginning of 2016.

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
