You did not make clear you were American! Suggest you google up "Zones of Occupation Germany" and then you will see that the American zone ran right down to the south to the border with Austria, covering all of Bavaria. South of Munich it is the same range of mountains as in Austria so it is more than likely this was taken in one of the alpine villages in Germany in the mountains south of Munich. Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the Zugspitze area, highest peak in Germany, 3000m, were particularly popular with American troops on leave. Obviously taken in summer, person on grass in light clothing, so I think it would be June-August 1945. Google a map of the area and you will find plenty of similar landscapes. Could be Austria but my best guess now would be Bavaria.
