Brownfield in Freiburg Old Goods Station
Baden-Wuerttemberg

A large part of the area lies idle only some tracks are used to park trains.

Only a few hundred meters from my home is the the old goods railway station of Freiburg. It will soon be torn down to make room for new flats and offices. I hope they will preserve at least a bit of the old architecture.


Currently the warehouses are still used to store goods and are also used as studios, small factories and workshops.

The trains, however, don't use this spur any more and only the names of the streets like "Zollhallenstraße" (toll street) or "Freiladestraße" (free-goods street) tell of the former importance when there was still customs at the border to France.

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.
