The fortress Germersheim was a royal Bavarian castle in the Palatinate town of Germersheim. It was funded by the German federal government and was part of a fortification system in West Germany for protection from the feared French attack. The fortress Germersheim was not, as often alleged, a federal fort. During the 1834 and 1855 and 1861 started construction work finished locking, they disabled the later urban development and prevented any growth of population or location of industry. Since 1878 the fort was the site of the 17th Infantry Regiment "Orff" to the Bavarian army. As a result of the Treaty of Versailles it was razed, 1920-1922, for the most part, the still-preserved parts are now commonly regarded as a local cultural heritage.

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.
