Kirkenes to Murmansk ferry

Farmers transport their cows on a boat over the Koenigssee lake in front of the famous church Saint Bartolomae during a traditional Bavarian cattle drive on October 9, 2010 in Koenigssee, Germany. The cattle drive (Almabtrieb) is an annual event in the alpine regions in Europe, referring to a cow train in autumn. In many areas the cows are decorated elaborately, and the cow train is celebrated with music and dance events in the towns and villages.
