As we recently reported, Christopher Paolini took a short trip to Germany to attend the Bertelsmann 175 years celebration ceremonial act at the Konzerthaus am Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin. Bertelsmann is a transnational media corporation founded in 1835, based in Gütersloh, Germany, and owner of Random House, Christopher’s publisher. Shur’tugal has been forwarded a number of photos from the event, including some of Christopher with fellow Random House authors and staff members. Check out the stunning photos after the jump!

The lovely building at which the party took place.
HUGE thank you to Lauren Kate for the fantastic pictures from Germany! Check Lauren out, including her highly-acclaimed fantasy series TORMENT, on her official website!
