Burgkloster and the former Seemannsheim
Germany

The old Burgkloster (Monastery) was founded 1227. It sits on the top of the hill. It was also used as prison, among others, during the Nazi regime to keep political prisoners locked. The so-called „Dr. Jazzbunker“ in Lübeck shortly before it’s demolition in 2012. One of several bunkers which were built across the City of Lübeck during the Nazi time as an air raid shelters for the civilians, this one is well-known because of it’s history as „Jazzbunker“. Between 1975 and 2008, a private jazz club driven by the band called Dr.Jazz-Companie was seated here. Jazz musicans from all around the world gave concerts in the concrete, well-isolated rooms of the Bunker. After Dr. Jazz left the rooms in 2008, the City Council decided 2012 to demolish the bunker along with neighbour buildings from the 1970s, in order tu build the Hanse-Museum in this place. 

The old Burgkloster (Monastery) was founded 1227. It sits on the top of the hill. It was also used as prison, among others, during the Nazi regime to keep political prisoners locked.

Mer om 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.
