Old St. Alban is one of the oldest church buildings in cologne, mentioned first time in 1172. Today you find there a memorial for the parents of fallen soldiers. Unfortunately, the ruins are not open for public, so you can only try to take a shot through the fence.
The Chinese House, a garden pavilion, is to find in Sanssouci Park in Potsdam. It was built in 18th century. I guess it’s the one Chinese piece which has to be found in every royal garden from that time. And indeed it looks quite impressive with all the gold, a sign of the rich Prussia of that time.
The sun going down behind the Concert Hall of Frankfurt (Oder). A building that I’ve never visited but yet seen almost every day when I lived in Słubice and studied in Frankfurt. As you can guess, the shot is taken from the bridge which is connecting Germany and Poland, a bridge I had to use quite often.
It took a while, but here we go, the first real photo from Frankfurt (Oder) on the blog. It’s the town where I studied for my Bachelor Degree. Actually I’m still studying there, but finishing soon so I only have to go there once a month or even less. The photo is taken from the bridge that connects Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice. Frankfurt (Oder) is right on the way from Berlin to Warsaw, so a lot of cars are passing it. But I never noticed before that evening how many planes are passing the region as well.
Well, that is the room where the German Chancellors where working from 1964 until 1999. Kind of small, don’t you think? I mean just think about where the American President is working and imagine him sitting in such small office. But on the other hand, this Residence for our Chancellor was much cheaper. In total it was costing only 1 Million Euro as there was a tight budget. I guess Merkel has a better office today.
