"Ask Reinhart"


Hi, I am Reinhart Zieger, roaming in the temples for more than 18 years. My first week in Angkor was disappointing.

Like the ox in front of the new barn gate

But I soon fell in love with Siem Reap. When I had to instruct German-speaking tour-guides, I realized that I did not know anything. (That’s why my first visits had been so disappointing.)

The temples tell us their stories

I discovered some ideas in the books. What had happened in the temples? What were they built for and I started looked for? Who are the people on the reliefs?

Information, consulting and photos

I’m guiding only in German, but eager to answer any questions about travelling to Angkor and ready to consult tour-guides and travel agencies. I have collected photos of almost all Khmer temples. Photo sales on demand.
