A lynx at the Hanau Wildpark, taken June 9. The orginal population of the Eurasian Lynx in Germany was already exterminated in 1850. After being reintroduced in the 1990s the lynx nowadays can be found (or could be – it is mainly a nocturnal hunter and very reclusive) in mountainous areas and national parks.
Spent another morning in Cologne (Feb.24). This time, my camera felt like taking color pictures.
Walked through Cologne today (Feb.23), Germany’s fourth largest and one the oldest cities in the country. The cathedral ( ‘Dom’) is its most famous monument. Construction began in 1248 and was only completed in 1880.
Walked through Limburg, a town some 70 kms (42 mls) northwest of Frankfurt, after completing a job there. I somehow felt it was a day for black and white. (Dec. 09)
People waiting at a bus stop with the medieval cathedral of Mainz in the background, which is just across Rhine river, some 50 kms (30 mls) west of Frankfurt, April 11.
An inside view of the catholic cathedral in Limburg, some 70 kms (42 mls) northwest of Frankfurt, taken Feb.19. The building in late Romanesque style is located on a rock above the old town and is visible from far away. Construction began around 1190, consecration was in 1235.
Frankfurt’s cathedral, constructed between 1250 and 1514, is seen on Oct. 24 behind buildings of which most were built after 1945. From 1562 to 1792 the cathedral, in German ‘Dom’, was the site where German emperors were crowned.
