Neuschwanstein Castle in Winter


Neuschwanstein Castle 4k


This castle set against the mountains in Hohenschwangau, Bavaria, Germany was the inspiration behind Disney's Cinderella Castle. The Romanesque Revival palace was commissioned by Bavarian King Ludwig II as a personal retreat and, surprisingly, was paid for out of his own pocket, not through public funds. Ludwig lived there for several of the 17 years it took to complete, dying during the year it was finally completed (1886). See it in stunning 4K drone footage thanks to pilot Alessandro.

The Bavarian Alps of southern Germany offer some of the most beautiful scenes of natural beauty in Europe.  Consisting of a series of sub-ranges which form part of the Northern Limestone Alps, the Bavarian Alps don't reach the altitudes of some of the taller mountains to the south - their highest peak, Zugspitze, has a modest summit elevation of just under 3k meters above sea level, or around 9.7k ft.  In this excellent drone video by Akas Kovacs, you'll be able to take in the beauty of the Bavarian Alps in the wintertime.  

Lakes of the Bavarian Alps

Take in these stunning aerial views of the Bavarian Alps in southern Germany, compliments of former Drone Video of the Week Finalist Akos Kovacs.  The focus of the video is the lakes which dot the region, which covers much of southern Bavaria.  These range from large bodies of water like the Chiemsee, which covers nearly 20k acres, to tiny lakes like the Alpsee and the Rothsee, which are only a few hundred acres.  The region's lakes are fed by runoff from the mountains, which are part of the Northern Limestone Alps.  

The Isar River




The Isar River is one of the most important waterways in southern Germany.  Sourced from runoff from the Karwendel Mountains in the Tyrol region of Austria and running a generally northeastern course of just under 300 km (a bit over 180 mi.), the river joins the Danube River near the town of Deggendorf in Bavaria.  Including its tributaries, the Isar drains an area of about 9k square km or a bit over 3k square mi.   Check out this dronie shot from the Isar by AirVuz contributor and pilot boma.story.

Prepare to be amazed by these dramatic drone views of the Bavarian Alps, compliments of top AirVuz contributor and pilot Akos Kovacs.  Filmed in the winter, the video features stunning aerial perspectives of what many consider to be the most scenic part of this large Central European country.  Part of the Northern Limestone Alps, the range covers a significant portion of Bavaria, the state which covers roughly the southeastern quadrant of the country.  This video was picked as a Finalist for the Drone Video of the Week in April, 2021. 

Eibsee Drone Views


Eibsee: German Lake in the Alps


Check out this stunning drone video of Germany's brilliantly colored Eibsee Lake.  It's situated in the heart of the Bavarian Alps, about a one hour drive southwest of the state capital of Munich.  The lake sits near the base of Germany's highest mountain peak: Mt. Zugspitze, which has a maximum elevation of 2.95k meters above sea level or about 9.7k ft.  The lake is sometimes called the Maldives of Bavaria due to the brilliant color of its waters.  The video was shot over the course of a day, from sunrise to sunset.

For a 4k aerial view of Germany's fabled Neuschwanstein Castle, it's tough to beat this piece by AirVuz contributor Luca T.  Filmed during winter, the video does a phenomenal job of capturing the beauty of this Romanesque Revival masterpiece in the hills of southwestern Bavaria.  Commissioned by the Bavarian King Ludwig II and completed in 1886 shortly before his death, it's one of Germany's (and Europe's) greatest cultural attractions.  It's located just above the village of Hohenschwangau, overlooking the Alpsee lake.

Brand-new contributor Rod Herzstrom brings us this excellent drone video from one of the most iconic alpine spots in Germany: the Eibsee lake in Bavaria.  Located just outside of the ski town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and about 100 km (around 60 mi.) southwest of Munich, the modestly-sized lake covers about 2 square km (around 440 acres).  The lake lies at the northern base of Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain, which has a summit elevation of just under 3k meters about sea level or approximately 9.7k ft.  

Königssee Drone Views


The Last Goodbye


AirVuz contributor cristian.gerard brings us this excellent drone video of one of the deepest lakes in Germany.  The Königssee is mostly located within Berchtesgaden National Park southern Bavaria, in the Berchtesgaden Alps and on land which is mostly surrounded by the territory of Austria.  Just under five mile long by about a mile wide (7.7 km by 1.7 km), the lake has a maximum depth of 620 ft. or about 190 km.  It is Germany's third-deepest lake and is believed to also be one of its cleanest.
