in mostly isolated, insignificant villages and thus unintentionally made these places many years later into

so today their descendants may be interested in the interest in these former artist-colonies
and the many
please. That shows: Art can also be a very effective and sustainable economic factor.

Wiki Murnau am Staffelsee : A place at the Staffelsee in Upper Bavaria, Landkreis Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria.
