Photographer's Note

Why is Monschau so special? The town has extraordinarily well-preserved houses that are centuries old, tucked into a peaceful, hilly landscape. The houses are half-timbered topped with high slate roofs, some of them richly colored and ornate.

The city is 30km south of Aachen in the extreme west of Germany, close to Belgium.
This is the winter version of this fantastic picture by Hanssie : Monschau
Not as nice as the summer version but still a beautiful place, don't you think ?

Also this picture from the same day, same city : Medieval Houses I
