Bad Belzig, also known as Belzig, is a historic town in

Brandenburg, Germany located about 70 km (43 mi) southwest of

Berlin. It is the capital of the Potsdam-Mittelmark district.


Geography

Bad Belzig is located within the Fläming hill range and in the

centre of the High Fläming Nature Park. The plains north of the

town are home to one of the few Great Bustard populations in

Germany.

Since 2003, when 14 surrounding villages were incorporated into

Bad Belzig, some of them voluntarily, others by Brandenburg

Landtag (state parliament) legislation, Bad Belzig has an area

of 234.83 km². These villages became districts (Ortsteile) of

Belzig:

    Bergholz
    Borne
    Dippmannsdorf     
    Fredersdorf
    Groß Briesen



    Hagelberg     
    Kuhlowitz
    Lübnitz
    Lüsse
    Lütte



    Neschholz
    Ragösen
    Schwanebeck
    Werbig

The forest of Verlorenwasser near Werbig encompassed the

geographical centre of East 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.
