Freiburg Part 2


I don't know what's wrong with my previous post but I cannot edit so I decided to make a second post anyway instead of deleting it.

First of all, I wanted to edit that part about the canals/gutters. This was used once used to provide water to fight fires and feed livestock - and was never used for sewage (which I wrote on the first post!) which was extremely forbidden and can lead to harsh penalties in the middle ages! Which reminds me I should look in my photo archive, we once visited a museum showing all those harsh penalties and its intruments!

Well for whatever reason it was, it definitely cools the air and was a treat to dogs and children who waddled through them in the sultry heat.

Since I cannot decide which picture to show you I hope you like the collages.


Here's Münster, Freiburg's Cathedral. It was really big and I could only capture a part of it because the market stalls around it was blocking the area. The stained glass windows were so beautiful. I didn't know which window I should take a picture of.
That door above is the main entrance to the cathedral, but if you take a look all those little figures are sculptures, each one is unique and tells its own story! Mostly from the bible or a a story of some saint. Just like this figure I zoomed on.
Well I hope you like Freiburg, much as I did, I told The V that I want to go there again some time. It would be nice to just hang around the town. After all we've driven past it too often without really stopping, I do think it deserve a bit more respect than that.

I have never been there ! It looks a very nice town. Yes, the Eurostar is a great invention I think you can take it in Köln but I am not so sure. It saves you a lot of time with checking in, (you only have to be there 1/2h before) and then you are in London city and not outside.

kayni and layrayski - yes the buildings are really beautiful, freiburg is one of the cities here in germany that wasn't bombarded/damaged in the last WWII so they are still intact and remain to be beautiful after hundreds and hundreds of years.

gattina - this is really a beautiful town, drop by one day on your way south.

blue dreamer - thanks for the visit, nope i am not such a fan of science fiction but i'll drop by anyway :)
