Europe through Bing Maps Bird's-eye view

Folks, I swear, this is my last thread on SSC (I'm shamed for creating a lot of topics here ).

Nolke member gave me powers when showed me the amazing functions of Bing Maps Bird's-eye view, by Microsoft. This tool allows you to see on a special and unique perspective some European cities and towns. Trust me, worth using it.

I don't have your patience, Silano, so my zooms are not as stunning as yours. Still, great idea, here are indeed stunning towns:

Ghent, amazing and underrated city in Belgium



Passau, the "Dreifluesse Stadt", with rivers Danube, Inn and Ilz. Germany, but close to the border with Austria


Siracusa, old town, Italy



Heidelberg, Germany, the Burg

I discovered bing maps and their awesome pictures around 2 years ago. But back then only lower zoom levels where visible. I'll check them again!

Yes, there is bird's eye on these three islands. I'm working right now, when I go home I show to you pics from these places.
