Trier: one photo at a time

Germany\’s oldest city through the eyes of a Kiwi

Winery in Maikammer

Wine cellar in Maikammer


Wine stacked in crates and piled high, awaiting sale, in the cellar of a small, family-run winery in Maikammer. Maikammer is a small town of just over 4000 inhabitants in the Pfalz (Palatinate) region and on the famed German Weinstraße. Vineyards dominate the landscape, just as wine-making dominates the economy.

  6. I just love blogs with a Kiwi/German connection – being a Kiwi myself and suffering from some serious Fernweh! I was only ever once in Trier and briefly at that, so keep the pics coming 🙂

  10. Very nice woody effect, and the balance between the square boxes and the round arch. Great shot

  11. Wood crafts form a distinct pattern and the wood looks warm and rich.

  14. I lived in the Philippines from the age of 2-8 yrs old. Felix gum was coveted by us military kids. I remember our parents would give money to whoever was going to Japan and they would bring back boxes of the gum. I remember selling pieces of the gum to my classmates for double or triple what it really costs. Click
