Made in Germany 13


The cloisters of Chorin Monastery in the state of Brandenburg, East Germany.

This monastery is built of the typically red brick, but it has a very light orange shade that is hard to see during the day; however, when the sun starts to set, it suddenly glows in all shades of orange-red. It is absolutely stunning. The atmosphere gets very special, even a little mysterious in a very good way. The place was almost magical.

Do you have something German to share? A special memory, story, book, food, photo? Leave your URL in the comments and we come and visit.

Beautiful, Carola. I always think of cloisters as extra-specially peaceful places, even though I am not Catholic.
