Very nice, Astrid! They don't leave much room for the possibility of flooding, do they?
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. I think this might not be a place where it floods easy. There are a lot of little rivers like this in the neighborhood.
What a lovely place, Astrid.Well captured.
Picturit: Thank you, Frank. It is a delightful little town. I was glad we were there early in the tourist season though.
Jolie vue, il me semble entendre le bruit de l'eau.
Picturit: It was so wonderful to see and hear the water go through...
I bet this is one of the most favorite views of them all in Monschau, Astrid! I'm so glad you took us there for my birthday. THANK YOU!
Picturit: This was my joy to you, Ginnie. Thanks to a good friend of ours we made the trip. I was impressed with the town.

This is the iconic view of Monschau, a really lovely place. Many towns in this part of Germany look like that. A beautiful image!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine. It was a joy to walk through this town. Very photogenic smile

I think these could be described at higgledy piggledy Astrid
Picturit: I never heard of that those words, Chris. But I think you are right smile
Quel bel endroit ...Pittoresque à  souhait
bonne journée
Picturit: Thank you, Claudine. It was a joy to be here and see all the nice houses.
Indeed, real Germany
Dom kan gewoon in het nederlands ;-0
Water komt mooi uit !
Picturit: Ja mooi hè. Een vriendin was er ooit eens geweest en dit kwam mooi uit om Monschau te bezoeken en de volgende dag Keulen. Ik zou did best wel eens willen zien met al het smeltwater in het voorjaar.

What a fantastic place this is Astrid. Those buildings look fragile somehow, but I’m sure they are sturdy enough, and would need to be when flood waters come rushing down.
Picturit: This is a wonderful place to visit. I think they knew what they were doing and I think most of the houses are build on rock... but then, what do I know. Philine might know for sure.
This is German at its most delightful Lady P
Picturit: You are right, Bill. This is just a delight.
My idea of Germanic heaven.
Picturit: Don't you just love it and yes I think you are right about, German Heaven.

Those Germans don't know about a dumpy level or any similar device.

In the meantime you made a brilliant picture of this river bend.
Picturit: Thank you, Louis. I think the town started out with one house, one café, a church another café, another house and then it was all filled up....
I can imagine being lulled to sleep by those rushing waters, Astrid. Such a pretty place.
Picturit: I sleep with the sound of a river.... it does wonders smile
That is gorgeous.
Picturit: Thank you, Michael. It is a great place to visit.
Such a pleasant view...
Picturit: Indeed so, Larry. And not too many tourists either wink
i think i would recognize this view anywhere, Astrid. nice shot, without a doubt.
well framed image Astrid... i love this kind of architecture and the river bend adds so much....petersmile
