Climbed Ottenstein Facing to the Castle #1
Germany

The rocks of the dead stone (Totenstein) and the stone Otten (Ottenstein) offer a picturesque view of the Old Town. The castle is enthroned with the St. George's Church on a protruding rock outcrop. These two buildings are the symbol of Black Mountain (Schwarzenberg).

The first known written mention of Black Mountain is from 21/12/1282: Vogt, Heinrich von Gera presented a certificate here in the city. It is about to assume with great probability that the castle was founded in 1150. At that time you may also assume that there must have been forty meters above the black water at the farthest point of the rocky spur found a watch-tower. A road led through this area to Bohemia already in 1118.

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.
