The Citadel Wesel is the largest remaining fortress of the Rhineland and was built in Wesel, 1688-1722, designed by Johan de Corbin in the form of a five-pointed star, while representing each "wave" a bastion. The Citadel was the core of the fortress of Wesel. The architectural features of the Citadel dates back to the principles of Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban, the largest fortress in its time farmer. The entire fortress of Wesel was fitted during this period with 250 guns.

Today, the Citadel complex, the Municipal Museum, housed department Schill casemates, the city archive of conservation workshop, music and art of the town of Wesel and the Prussia Museum of North Rhine-Westphalia.

This is an overview of 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.
