The Vianden Castle, the imposing home of the counts, was not only a medieval fortress bristling with defenses, or nothing was sacrificed for comfort, but a real castle-palace. The castle was developed from a decagonal tower from the Carolingian period, later converted into a chapel. The Chapel, the Small Palace and the Grand Palace, the most beautiful parts of the castle were carried out in the first half of the thirteenth century.
The district of Juliers in the west of the Grand Palace, dates from the early fourteenth century, the district of Nassau was erected at the early seventeenth century

This panorama was taken in 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.
