Munich: A daring perspective

Swiss photographer Sébastien Closuit and the Cadillac XT5 Crossover have teamed up for an extraordinary road trip to explore a different side of Munich, and to capture the regions hidden sweet spots for outdoor enthusiasts.

Meet Sébastien Closuit

Viktualienmarkt, Allianz Arena, Nymphenburg Palace. Those are the touristic hotspots Munich is famous for. Worldwide. However, Sébastien Closuit seeks the unknown – or at least the not so well known. Outdoors is where he feels at home. After all, he was born and raised in Martigny, Switzerland. Nature is practically in his DNA. Till this very day he loves being outside, enjoying nature, and seeing new places and spots. So, it’s no surprise that he chose to take a different kind of road trip through the outback of Munich. Together with his camera and the Cadillac XT5 Crossover, he set out on an adventure.

And so it begins

The first stop of his road trip was the picturesque Staffelsee with its magnificent panorama mountain view. There’s no better place to explore nature then here, surrounded by acres of trees with the Alps hovering majestically on the horizon. And also the arrival itself stood for utmost travel comfort: The 3.6L V6 engine with 8- speed automatic transmission – 314hp (231kW) and 368 Nm – delivers effortless acceleration quietly and smoothly, while the responsive handling keeps you feeling firmly in control.

Waterfalls and underground rivers

Next up was one of Bavaria’s most beautiful natural monuments: the Partnachklamm in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Not an easy task by foot. Fortunately, the Cadillac XT5 is equipped with Driver Select Mode, offering real time damping and three available distinctive drive feels, ensuring the most comfortable ride, under any condition. Combine this with the available four-wheel drive, and no mountain road will be too steep. Upon arrival, the natural beauty of an ice-cold mountain river, as well as nearby waterfalls, awaited Sébastien. The perfect shot was guaranteed. (

Onto the next level

Sébastien’s last stop led him even deeper into Southern Bavaria, where he took the Karwendelbahn cable car to the Karwendel mountain range. There really is no better spot for a hike than the mountains’ untouched nature. And with an altitude of 2244m, this is the second highest mountain railway in Germany, with a pretty spectacular view.

Back to the city

Finally, it was time to hit the open road one last time and return to the realms of the city. Thanks to several comfort features such as the head-up display, lane departure warning or the side blind zone alert, even busy rush hour drives don’t affect the driving comfort until the final destination of our route: Cadillac House Munich.
