Inside the church there is a model of the church built with Lego's. It was built for the chuch's 125 anniversary. I can't really find to much information on it. Next post will be the real church! The Link below is about as much as I could find. http://godbricks.blogspot.com/2015/06/ulm-minster.html
Another beautiful city that needed a ton more time to explore. We hit the major point, Ulm Minster, which is another gorgeous church. That will be in another post, though. Fun fact: Albert Einstein was born in Ulm.
One of the exhibits at Hessenpark is called Flight and Explusion, Refugees were packed into railcars and transported back to Germany. Behind the slats on the wall in the railcar part of the exhibit were monitors that played a video of the view from the car as it was moving along. https://www.hessenpark.de/en/lexikon/dauerausstellungen/vertriebene-in-hessen/ https://www.hessenpark.de/en/lexikon/historische-gebaeude/baugruppe-mittelhessen/scheune-aus-damshausen/
Here are a few shots of some of the insides of some structures that weren't museum exhibits.
So inside some of the buildings are different exhibitions. I mean I guess you can't call yourself a museum without exhibitions, right? Anyway, I wasn't going to post these, as they are behind glass and hard to get a good picture - but I can't convey the experience without including them either! My favorite one … Continue reading Hessenpark – Exibitions
These 3 churches that are in the park are from different eras but silly me forgot to at least write down the information about them. I wasn't thinking about this blog at the time, sorry! Enjoy the pictures though.
About 30 minutes from Frankfurt is Hessenpark a huge open air museum that has over a hundred buildings that were brought in from all over Hesse and restored. A lot of them have different museum exhibitions in them and some of them are restored to the period from which they came from. There is a … Continue reading Hessenpark Open Air Museum
One more post from my Neuschwanstein Castle Trip. These are mostly just more shots walking up to the castle, but the main theme for this post is Marienbrücke (Mary’s Bridge, aka Pöllat Bridge). The Bridge gives an excellent view of the castle and a great view of the gorge below. When I first walked on … Continue reading Hohenschwangau/Neuschwanstein Castle/Marienbrücke
Part One - Splitting this one up since it's been so long since I've posted anything. Hopefully there won't be such a large time gap until the next one. Hohenschwangau is at the base of Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle. To get to Neuschwanstein Castle you can take a bus, horse drawn carriage or walk. … Continue reading Hohenschwangau/Neuschwanstein Castle
About 4 hours southeast of Frankfurt is this beautiful castle. Neuschwanstein (noy/shvan/stine) Castle. Hey I just learned how to pronounce it correctly while doing my background digging for this post! It also was an inspiration for Walt Disney to build Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland. It is surrounded by the most beautiful country, and I … Continue reading Neuschwanstein Castle
