Tower in the Park of Limburgerhof, Palatine, Germany
The little Tower in the Park of Limburgerhof was built in 1830 by the Countess Waldner von Freudenstein. The Tower had a originally in its first floor a little Chapel, then in the next two floors a Library and a Hunting Parlour. On the Top of the Tower was a small Observatory.
The Tower is located in the small Park in which a Church and the Manor House can be found.
From southern Position on the Platform the view goes over the acres of the BASF Agricultural Center, founded in 1914 by Carl Bosch.
The former room of the Observatory on top of the Tower is today used by an Author as Working Chamber of Silence and Inspiration. The Community of Limburgerhof has given the Room to an Author for free.
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.
