To the East: The Harbour of Lübeck (Lübecker Hafen). In the front the European Hansa Museum (under construction as for Winter 2011/2012).

To the West: The former monastery Burgkloster is located in the north of Lübeck between the Burgtor town gate and the Koberg Place. It's located behind the neo-Gothic former court building in the Große Burgstraße (today: State Department of Social Services). The Burgkloster was founded in 1227. With the introduction of the Reformation in 1531, the monastery was dissolved. In the building a poorhouse was established. Within the subsequent years, the neglected building complex broke down one by one. In the early 19 Century, the no longer used, demolished church was torn down due to fall hazard. 

From the end of the 19th Century, the building was used as a courthouse and detention center. During the "Third Reich" the Burgkloster became site of National Socialist injustice. Arrested Jews were kept here, as well as resistance fighters of the labor movement. The "Christians Process" in 1943, which ended with the death sentences upon four anti-nazi clergymen, took place here. Thus, the Burgkloster is a monument both to the Middle Ages as well as the recent German history. 

The Burgkloster contains numerous stone sculptures, which are often created as a console and the vault final stones. It is the largest high-Gothic monastery in Northern Germany, and a sacred architectural monument of European rank. Until 2011, two museums were located here. Since 2011, the whole complex is being rebuilt and will be integral part of the European Hanse Museum, which is under construction now (2012).

Detta är en översikt av 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.
