This is a tricky one, because you can't see what the natural coat is! I want to agree with Julius that this a fallow deer, the antlers confused me, but I have seen photos with antlers like this. Also the build looks more like a fallow. But you can get white red deer! They're leucistic deer, a year or so ago one was spotted here in the UK and someone caught it on camera! They are so cool looking. But it's highly rare in red deer, and as Julius said, common in fallows! Haha, to conclude this long rambly comment, I think it's a fallow deer!

PS: I'm not sure if there're any red deers with this color anomalie. It's no albino as you can see on his eyes. Although the white color is quite common within the Fallow deers.

Oh you've been to germany :D. In which reserve did you find this deer?
