Aachen Elisenbrunnen in the evening
In 1827 the Elisenbrunnen was initiated. A representative building should be established to present the famous healing water of the thermal spring. Friedrich Schinkel revised the plans of the Aachener architects Cremer, so that also in this building, the handwriting Schinkel is visible. Today the healing water of the spring is still drunk, but the building is also used for any other purpose. In summer Salza dancer and tango lunatics meets regularly around in the rotunda to dance.

Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.
Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!
But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.
Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.
And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.
