Recent Reviews Jakob Frenzel

The Betlém Rock Sculptures near Kuks (T) Jakob Frenzel

The rocks Wege very hard to find. It was already getting dark and when de finally arrived at THW oarking lot it became dark andthe stone sculptures became very spooky. The sculptures are in Bad shape but very fascinating.

Grand Place, Brussels Jakob Frenzel

I visited Brussels first in March 2009 and once again in November 2013. The Grand Place is really amazing due its closed architectural integrance. However leaving to the side streets, the situation looks different. Not too many people which makes a pleasant stay also on the Place.

Semmering Railway Jakob Frenzel

We had a Coupon to go from Vienna to Munich.

Instead of going straight we went via Semmering. The tracks were covered in snow and the landscape had a very special flair. Unfortunately we were not sitting in a steam engined Train.

Vienna Jakob Frenzel

Vienna, what a city!

The international, Habsburger flair can be seen everywhere. I loved the food, the architecture, the Gemütlichkeit, and especially the castles. Bellevue, the Karlskirche and the Naschmarkt were the most fascinating objects.

Visted May 2007 and March 2010

Hallstatt-Dachstein Jakob Frenzel

Visted Hallstadt on our trip September 2014.

The cultural landscape is interesting and we even had a swim in the Hallstatter See (brrr).

However visting the WHS is pretty hard. The prices are horrendous, and no parking is available for Campers. But the old town at the lake is quite intersting.
