    With the knowledge that I might not get round to Oldenburg so soon again (reasons too difficult to explain) I decided I'd have to take some more photos of this neat little town with its lovely old town centre with all the shops in the oldest and largest pedestrian precinct of Germany, and I might share some of those with you. I have more but don't want to make this thread too large. As soon as I'll be home from a weekend away (where I intend to take thousands of new photos... groan!), I might put up more, if you want me to, that is ;) .

    Off the wider streets, there go these narrower ones which I find ever so picturesque.

    And you will NEVER guess what is being sold in this shop:

    Or do you????? ;););););)

    A nice pub front.

    And round the town there is this moat and this row of houses on the other side, and I have always liked the reflections and thought by myself "One day you must take a photo". Last chance - and I used it :)

    Enough for today.
    Don't miss me too much Saturday and Sunday, I'll be back with my own talkative self on Monday, promise ;) (Or threat? :D)

    Villiages like that are so beautiful.

    The first and second one are really lovely scenes.

    The first reflection one is just brilliant, and the last one is fascinating as well.

    Thank you all for your positive comments on these photos of the town of Oldenburg - it wasn't all that easy to say my thanks to you, since I had to go to Page 3 of this Gallery in order to find this thread - a weekend away and I no longer recognise any of the Gallery, so many new photos... I fear I can't be my usual self now and write out a nice reply to each and everyone's latest contributions. Whoa! So many.

    Oldenburg is, indeed, a very old town and the people there would be quite offended if they heard someone say it was a "village" (Gunderground), it has had all the rights of a town for many centuries and is the commercial, administrative and cultural centres in the area.
