in der Schüssel Grosser Waldstein Bayern Germany 4267

Die Schüssel

Eine kesselartige Vertiefung auf dem höchsten Felsen des Waldsteins, auf den eine Besteigungsanlage führt, gab einst dem Felsen den Namen. Dieser Name übertrug sich auf den Aussichtspavillon, der 1851 vom Revierförster errichtet wurde, da König Maximilian II. von Bayern seinen Besuch angesagt hatte, aus Zeitgründen jedoch nicht auf den Waldstein kam. Der Pavillon war ursprünglich mit blau-weißen Rauten bemalt und die Öffnungen mit Glas verschlossen. Die Bemalung und die Glasscheiben fielen der Witterung zum Opfer und sind heute nicht mehr zu sehen.

More About Franconia

Wikipedia: Franconia (German: Franken) is a region of Germany comprising the northern parts of the modern state of Bavaria, a small part of southern Thuringia, and a region in northeastern Baden-Württemberg called Heilbronn-Franken. The Bavarian part is made up of the administrative regions of Lower Franconia (Unterfranken), Middle Franconia (Mittelfranken), and Upper Franconia (Oberfranken).Franconia (like France) is named after the Germanic tribe of the Franks. This tribe played a major role after the breakdown of the Roman Empire and colonised large parts of medieval Europe.Modern day Franconia comprises only a very tiny and rather remote part of the settlement area of the ancient Franks. In German, Franken is used for both modern day Franconians and the historic Franks, which leads to some confusion. The historic Frankish Empire, Francia, is actually the common precursor of the Low Countries, France and Germany. In 843 the Treaty of Verdun led to the partition of Francia into West Francia (modern day France), Middle Francia (from the Low Countries along the Rhine valley to northern Italy) and East Francia (modern day Germany). Frankreich, the German word for "France", and Frankrijk, the Dutch word for "France"; literally mean "the Frankish Empire".
