St. Bartholomä - Am Königsee
Germany

St. Bartholomae is a hermitage on the western shore of the lake on King of the Hirschau peninsula. The very small settlement on the peninsula is a district of the community Schoenau on the Kingslake. The peninsula is easily reachable only by boat; walk it can only be reached via a long, partly high alpine routes. The chapel dates back in some parts of the 12th century. Since the 17th century it is in the style of the Baroque. St. Bartholomew was regarded as the patron of alpine farmers and dairy maids. The chapel has two different towers and red onion domes. The layout mimics the shape of the Salzburg Cathedral. The church contains stucco work by the Salzburg artist Josef Schmidt and Dreikonchenchor, the altars in the individual conches are each St. Bartholomew, St. Catherine and St. Jacobus dedicated.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.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!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.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.Text by Steve Smith.
