Some parts of this blog also in English

Unfortunately this blogs bigger part is written in German.

But there is a little shop included where you can buy photographs and it is translated to English (as well as some articles). So you can appreciate the pictures also on your wall!

Notice: Pages with products only available in German are not translated or, if the language doesn’t matter that much, you will be adverted to this factor.
