Bavaria 2022




Workshop Date: September 29 – October 3, 2022
Meet and Greet on September 29

Come and explore the Romantic Road of Bavaria Germany on a repeat of the very popular 2010, 2014 and 2017 Bavarian Workshops. We will begin in what is arguably the most Medieval Town in all of Germany if not the whole of Europe, Rothenburg ob de Tauber. From there we head south to other towns worthy of note; Dinkelsbuhl, Nordlingen, Harburg, Augsburg, Landsberg, Füssen and Hohenschwangau and our final stop at the foot of Mad King Ludwig’s famous castle, Neuschwanstein.

This workshop will showcase some of the most surprising agricultural landscapes, rolling hills dotted with castles, half-timbered houses, an amazing array of windows, flowering window boxes, gorgeous valleys, all surrounded by the imposing Bavarian Alps. Count on photographing some beautiful onion-domed churches at the heart of quaint towns and villages, crystal clear streams brimming with German Brown Trout, and of course a daily dose of great German breads, sausages and cheeses. For those who enjoy their beer, there will be no shortage of choices. The famous Oktoberfest festival will be happening in Munich, but to be clear we will NOT be going anywhere near Munich. IF you wish to join the festivities of Oktoberfest in Munich, plan your trip to arrive before the workshop begins, thus allowing you the time needed to enjoy the Oktoberfest prior to the workshop.

Bryan lived in Bavaria for two years and knows the area very well, including many of the backroads and short cuts so your time will be “time well spent” over the course of this four-day workshop.

We will lodge for the first two nights (September 29 – October 1) at the Hotel Merian* in Rothenburg Ob de Tauber. From Rothenburg we will move on to Fussen and lodge there at a TBD hotel for two nights (October 1 and 2). On the morning of October 3, we will arise early and take the scenic drive back to Frankfurt, stopping at Nesselwang, Ulm and other photographic locations along the way. We will arrive and lodge near the Frankfurt Airport on the final evening (October 3), allowing easy connections for anyone who has flights on October 4 or needs to pick up a rental car for continued travel.

**It is each student’s responsibility to make his or her reservations at the Hotel Merian in Rothenburg (for September 29 – October 1) and at a hotel of your choice near the Frankfurt airport (for October 3).

**For lodging in Fussen, Bryan will take care of that booking, and each student will settle their room charges with the Fussen hotel upon check out.

The Meet and Greet for this workshop will be at 12:00 pm on the Departure Level of Hall A inside the Frankfurt Airport, directly underneath the giant cube, marked “Hall A”, that hangs from the ceiling which is marked “Hall A”. From here will load into the 12 passenger Van along with luggage and camera gear and head for Rothenburg ob de Tauber.
