Slide Show on "Germany's Prettiest Villages and Small Towns"

Today msn.com has a slide show with a photo and brief description of forty beautiful German villages and small towns. It's annoying to have to click through each photo and write-up individually, but the photos are beautiful. I'm finding lots of places to add to my notes for a future trip to Germany.

Ooooooh we’ve been to about 1/4 of those towns and they are even more beautiful and interesting to visit than the one picture captures. Can’t wait to see more.

EDIT: actually visited 18 of the towns. Really nice places!

Nice slides but be warned, IF YOU LOOK AT THEM IN THE FULL SCREEN MODE, THEY ARE ALL MISLABELED.

They showed up correctly labeled on my computer.

The pictures were a nice trip.

When I viewed them full screen they were all correctly described - although I can't promise for every one because I've never been in Saxony.

Earlier when I looked at them, when I clicked on full screen, the picture got bigger and the labeling jumped a hear by about 2 or 3 slides, it seems to be OK now but I would still check it on someplace that I knew before I trusted it on anything else.

St. Goarshausen was a curious choice.

I am guessing that the writer didn't set foot in the town proper, but instead merely viewed it from the opposite river bank. That view really is spectacular. But there's little to see or do in the town itself - the two castles mentioned cannot be visited, and the buildings there are less than inspiring. The best things about this town:

1.) It's only 20 minutes by train from Braubach, home of Marksburg Castle.
2.) It has a ferry crossing to the "left" side of the river where there's a cluster of more interesting towns just to the north and south.

Thanks for posting this link! Interesting choice of towns ... been to most of them. Binz had a wrong picture. It was taken in neighbouring Sellin.
