Colton's Journey to Germany

Current Location

Allensbach, Germany

Hello! My name is Colton Ochsner and I am studying science fiction and fantasy movies in Konstanz, Germany. My research is taking me far, and I look forward to sharing the adventure with you!


Konstanz may be a small city, but it offers a wide variety of events and activities. Join me as I show you some of this week's highlights and happenings in the surrounding area. 


What food comes to mind when you think of Germany? Bratwurst, sauerkraut?  What about spätzel, potato salad and potato pancakes?  As it turns out, there are many perspectives to "German" food.

Field Notes

Between September and October, Jenny and I stayed with a family in Allensbach. This is an interview I had with the wife and mother of the family.


Much like Konstanz, the rather small city of Bregenz, Austria, is nestled next to the Bodensee. The whole day was cold and cloudy, but on the mountain it was snowy and warm.
