Photographer's Note

Tittmoning is a town in the district of Traunstein, in Bavaria, Germany. It is situated on the border with Austria, on the left bank of the river Salzach, 38 km northwest of Salzburg. Population 6,151 (30 June 2005). Postal code 84529.

Its main attraction is the castle (Burg), which was built in the 13th century for the Archbishop of Salzburg. By the 17th century it had lost its character of a defensive castle and became the summer residence of the Archbishop. In the early years of World War II the castle was used as a prisoner-of-war camp for officers, Oflag VII-D.

From 11 July 1929 to 5 December 1932, Joseph Ratzinger lived here as a child. Later he became a cardinal and in 2005 was elected Pope Benedict XVI.
