Summer in Germany

Vacationers take a rail trolley tour on Aug. 9 near the Old Freight Depot in Waren, Germany. The 13-kilometer tour involves bicycle-like vehicles that are designed to carrying two to four passengers along the tracks.

Leisure activities not involving bathing suits and sunscreen are popular in Germany, due to the lack of beach weather.
