Lübeck - Koberg
Germany

Koberg in the Quartier St. Jakobi is a prominent place in the north of the island of Lübeck and (after the Markt) the second major place of the Old Town. While the Markt was a market for perishable products, brewery products were sold here. In the winter time, Koberg is the place where the Riesenrad (big wheel) of the Christmas Marked is traditionally standing. The main tourist feature is the building of the historical Heilig-Geist-Hospital, which used to be (and still is) a charitable foundation with very interesting interior architecture, parts of which are open for bublic. The book store seen in the picture which was residing in the parsonage went out of business several years ago.

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.
