Yes, but it depends.  In most German cities public transport systems are
not that bad.  With a bus or lightrail or even riding your bike it does
not take more than 15 or 30 minutes you are in the woods (sad story,
riding additional 15 or 30 minutes you will reach the next village or
town...).

Yahoo just recently started to serve more images in the Northern Bavaria
(Franconia).  It's worth checking from time to time.
