Fotoeins Friday in Oberammergau: Little Red Riding Hood

In this month’s series, I portray images of some of the “Lüftlmalerei” (house murals) in the Bavarian alpine town of Oberammergau, 21 km northwest from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

The story of Little Red Riding Hood is painted at the children’s home at Ettaler Strasse 48. The story was first published in German as Rottkäppchen by the Grimm Brothers in 1812 in their compilation “Kinder- und Hausmärchen” (Children’s and Household Tales).

I made the image above on 29 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/10, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-i8h.

      Hi, Cornelia. Did you have a favourite part of Oberammergau? And have you ever attended the Passion Play?

      Hi. I didn’t have particularly a favorite part in Oberammergau, except of course the bakery. I loved to drive further into Leutaschtal, that was always my favorite place, it’s just so very beautiful. Unfortunately I’ve never had the chance to attend Die Passions Spiele.

      Cornelia, with the background information I’ve read, I too would like to visit the Leutasch valley, tucked away between Mittenwald and Seefeld, though I must admit it would be more of a challenge without a car. For completeness, I’d like to visit the Leutascher Schanz, as part of the fortifications which included the Porta Claudia at Scharnitz. I was ambivalent before visiting Oberammergau, but what I learned about the Passion Play in town has encouraged my desire to see this some day.

      Henry, you would definitely love the Leutasch Tal, I would guess that there is a connection by local buses. It’s one of the most beautiful landscape I know of. Well when ever travelling will be possible again, I hope you get to see it.

      Hi again, Cornelia. I’ve seen some images and videos of the Leutasch valley: WOW. And I found out there’s a local bus that goes between Seefeld and Mittenwald via the Leutasch valley. I guess I will have to go back to Mittenwald/Werdenfelser Land. 🙂

      Hi and thanks, Amy. I recommend some time seeking out and seeing in person these house murals throughout southern Bavaria. Have a great 2021!

      Hi, Kathleen. Have you visited southern Bavaria? There are a lot of house murals to check out in that part of alpine Germany. Thanks for your comment and for stopping by!

      Hi again, Kathleen. I’m glad my photos and words are providing inspiration and, perhaps, fuel for your future 1st-time visit to Bavaria and southern Germany. 👍🏽
