Im Jahre 1174 gründeten Zisterziensermönche aus dem Kloster Eberbach bei Eltville im Rheingau das Kloster Arnsburg. Die Abtei entwickelte sich schnell zur wohlhabendsten in der Wetterau. Der letzte Aufschwung kam im 18. Jahrhundert. Damals wurden mehrere Barockgebäude errichtet, die bis heute erhalten sind. Im 30jährigen Krieg begann der Niedergang. In den Jahren 1959/60 wurde auf dem Gelände des ehemaligen Kreuzgangs  ein einzigartiger Kriegsgräberfriedhof geweiht. 447 Tote vieler Nationalitäten haben hier ihre letzte Ruhe gefunden.

Aufgenommen mit der Panasonic Lumix TZ 4 und einem Nodalpunktadapter Marke Eigenbau.                                                                              Micha.

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.
