Growing vine near Merzhausen
Baden-Wuerttemberg

Growing, making and drinking wine is a vital part of the regional culture.

In this early state the plants have been cut and tied to the wires in order to sustain the heavy grapes that will grow throughout the summer. The winery located in the Jesuitenschlössle just up the hill behind the trees.


The Jesuitenschlössle is a manor house ('schlössle' means 'small castle') built by the Society of Jesus in 1666 and now owned by a foundation. It contains not only the winery but also a restaurant.

The chapel is a Schönstatt shrine.

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.
