Last weekend I had the pleasure to work with the Germany tourism board (@Germanytourism) and promote the #Saarland region. Saarland is still a lesser known region for Dutch tourists, so it was my job to shoot and publish photos on my instagram account (containing a following crowd of 116.000).
It was my second job in short period (June 2017) for @Germanytourism, as part of their Dutch audience targeted “#Duitslanddichtbij‘ social media campaign. But rather than being part of a team of influencers each promoting a different region, this time I had the the job all to myself.
Considering one third of #Saarland is covered with forest, I was very excited to photograph the Autumn colours of the season. It turned out my prayers were heard and I was treated with some great circumstances for landscape photography.
Saarland surprised me with locations which were real photography gems. The villages of Tholey, Kirkel, Blieskastel and Orscholz are equally peaceful and photogeanic places. In Germany, historical architecture is never far away. The castles Schloss Berg, Burg Kirkel and Burg Montclair are fine examples, spread out over the region. Saarland’s most famous sight is the impressive Saarschleife, located in the northwest of the region. It’s a viewing point overlooking a 180 degree turn in the river Saar. The recently constructed Baumwimpfelpfad elevates another 45 meters and assures a breathtaking view over the Saarland and neighbouring Rheinland-Pfalz region.
