Took the group to the German Village of Monschau. By public transport! Yes – its possible and easy. The train from Brussels to Eupen, the bus from Eupen to Monschau.
Long waiting times at the SNCB ticked counter – lucky those who purchased ticked only or just bought it on the train (no surcharge)
Suddenly deer appeared ..
we had a nice picknic (not showing wine and cheese) while on the train to Eupen
Everybody getting the photo gear ready
the deer are back, selling drink and food stuff
the smiles are free
taking the bus Eupen – Monschau (30 minutes drive)
Happy Shuttercounts on tour
we had to climb the last 20 meter
to reach Monschau
and German Sausages
but still ok.
a Christmas tree to big for a picture
a wide angle lens did work better
Monschau was a center for silk and cotton processing
yes, it’s Santa Claus
something (with sugar apart) against the cold
a river running through Monschau
