Some time ago in a foggy afternoon. Even the TV Tower was not visible.

When you're walking around randomly only to enjoy the warm weather (yes, 15 degrees is warm here). The plan is to go to the beach but end up going to the open air museum 😆

The Frielichtmuseum in Molfsee, near Kiel, is the largest of its kind in northern Germany (60 hectares measures its area). We can see more than 70 historic buildings, courtyards, workshops and mills with their original furniture and tools. Most of the buildings date back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The oldest "exhibit" is dating back to 1569. Between the historic buildings live animals, as they were formerly held on the farms. We also can meet basket makers, blacksmiths, wood turner, potters, weavers and wood sculptors demonstrating their craftsmanship. In some houses there are also smaller exhibitions about agricultural equipment, toys or life in earlier times.

I'm not a big city lover but the architecture in Hamburg is exceptional. I'm captivated by this city...

After the snow at the palace ❄️❄️
.

Friedrich II built Neues Palais (New Palace) as a symbol of prestige. It was designed to show his neighbours and enemies that they had better take Prussia’s new power seriously. The construction was begun in 1763 after the end of the Seven Years War and completed in 1769. After the death of Frederick the Great in 1786, Neues Palais fell into disuse and was rarely occupied as a residence. However, starting in 1859, it became the summer residence of the German Crown Prince, Frederick William, later German Emperor Frederick III. The palace was the preferred residence of Frederick and his empress, Victoria, throughout the 99 Days’ Reign. After the fall of the monarchy in 1918 and the abdication of the Kaiser, Neues Palais became a museum.

They said, once you visit Switzerland (not its big city like Zurich or Geneva but its small cities and villages that surrounded by the Alps) you wouldn‘t want to visit another country. I agree, Switzerland is too beautiful to forget. ’Till we meet again ❤️

Once upon a rainy afternoon, there were a swan and her (or his) three companions on the water...

I can smell politics on every corner of the city, even in its oldtown. What can I expect in a city where there is a UN headquarters...

I had zero expectation with this city, only visited it for train connection, but surprisingly it‘s quite pretty 😊

The Kapellbrücke is one of the oldest wooden bridge in Europe, named after St. Peter's Chapel. It was built in 1333 as a part of the city's fortifications. Its purpose was to connect old part of town on the right bank with the new part on the left and to serve as protection from attack that could come from the lake at south. The Kapellbrücke has triangular paintings hanged bellow its roof. The paintings were painted in the 17th century by Hans Heinrich Wägmann, illustrated the history and legends of Lucerne.

It was rumored that JRR Tolkien got his inspiration to create Rivendell from this place...
.
.
The name Rivendell itself means “Deeply Cloven Valley” and Lauterbrunnen, with its steep sides and many waterfalls, fits this description, with the mountains of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau lying beyond.
