The ruin in the smallest city of Germany
Lens: 28-105 Camera: K1 ii Photo Location: Germany, Stadt Blankenberg near Cologne

Stadt Bkankenberg, the smallest City in Germany. It's true, only a few inhabitants, but the formal right to be a city (earned in medieval times). You will find an old ruin there.

Nice shots showing the ruin but I particularly like the atmosphere of the last shot.

The last shot is absolutely great. Catching that red train crossing the bridge really adds a lot to the photo.

As a guy from northern Germany I have to correct the info „smallest city in Germany“.
Stadt Blankenburg has been renamed „Stadt“ in 1953, but it‘s part of the city off Hennef an not a city itself.
It has about 650 inhabitants.

The smallest city in Germany is Arnis. It‘s still a self governing city with 300 to 350 inhabitants and the smallest size (0.45 skm).

I like the pictures of Stadt Blankenburg, though....😉
