Photos from Germany

The English word 'Germany' comes from the Latin word Germania, which came into use after Julius Caesar adopted it from a Gallic word for the peoples east of the Rhine. It could have meant 'neighbour', or 'men of forests'. Many regions in Germany have their own dialect, for example Swabian (Schwäbisch) in the region around Stuttgart.
