The romanesque church St. Michael in Niederrotweil (Kaiserstuhl)
Baden-Wuerttemberg

The parish church of St. Michael in Niederrotweil was first mentioned in 1157 but there is evidence that it goes back into the 8th century. It's situated on a rock that was surrounded by a branch of the rhine in former times and its thick walls shows that it was intended as a fortified church which could protect the community during wartimes.

It is built in romanesque style and it's in this region the oldest church keeping the oldest organ. It is famous for the frescos (from about 1350) that where uncovered in 1951 and its altar which was carved by master HL (presumable "Hans Loy" in about 1520, who carved the famous altar in the Münster of Breisach, too).

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.
