Fairy Tale Houses in Oberammergau

In Bavaia, Germany, there is this tradition of painting murals on the facades of houses. It is called  "Lueftlmalerei" (and sorry I have no clue how to translate that). Oberammergau, a small town in the  Allgau region, most popular for its passion-plays around Easter, has a variety of houses that are painted this way, but the chosen motifs do not belong to the Christian iconography or the everyday life as usual but show scenes from fairy tales.
