Diese interaktive Panoramafotografie zeigt den Marienhof und den Kreuzgang der Abtei Brauweiler sowie die heutige Pfarrkirche St. Nikolaus. Die Steinstatue der doppelköpfigen Madonna im Zentrum des Marienhofes ist mit einem Kranz von 12 Sternen umgeben und stammt aus den Jahren 1774/75.

1136 wurde unter Abt Aemilius der dritte Bau von Kirche und Kloster begonnen und bis nach 1200 fortgeführt. Das Benediktinerkloster wurde bereits 1024 vom lothringischen Pfalzgrafen Ehrenfried und seiner Gemahlin Mathilde begründet.

1802 wurden alle geistlichen Einrichtungen durch einen Beschluss Napoleons geschlossen.

Brauweiler liegt westlich von Köln und gehört zur Stadt Pulheim.

This panorama was taken in Cologne, Germany

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.
