Lübeck - Petersilienstrasse
Germany

The approximately 60 meters long, very narrow Petersilienstraße (German for „parsley street“) is located in the northwestern part of Old Town Island of Lübeck, the Mary Magdalene district. It connects the Engelswisch street to the An der Untertrave. The street is closed to the road traffic; actually, hardly a car would come throught because the street is so narrow. The street was first mentioned in 1323 as the Goldogenstrate. This name refers to the oldest councilor Goldoge family which in the 13th Century owned several houses here and in the Engelswisch. The street leading down to the Trave river was created and built up very late, because in the end of the 13th Century utility gardens still were here and gardeners were resident her. Most probably, this is the current street name derives from, since actually parsley was planted here. The present name was adopted officially in 1852.

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.
