Berkenthin, the pedestrian bridge
Berkenthin is a municipality in the district of Lauenburg, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It is situated on the Elbe-Lübeck Canal (ELK, built 1900), approx. 10 km northwest of Ratzeburg, and 15 km south of Lübeck. The ELK connects the Trave with the Elbe and the Baltic Sea. Berkenthin consists of two districts, small Berkenthin west of the Canal and large-Berkenthin on the eastern Canal side. The two districts are connected by a steel bridge carrying the Bundesstrasse 208. In the southern area, a pedestrian bridge crosses the Canal and leads directly to the historic Mary Magdalene Church (built 1230). The entire eastern part of the municipality is part of the Lauenburg Lakes Nature Park. In the North side, the Berkenthin watergate is to be seen, which is one of seven watergates on the Elbe-Lübeck-Canal.

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.
