Jakob Frenzel Profile

Jakob Frenzel
Jakob Frenzel.

I was born in 1987 in West-Berlin. Since then I have visited many places in Europe and went on four trips through the USA, to New Zealand and Thailand.
2005 I discovered the magnificance of World heritage sites and since then try not to miss any on our journeys. We try to plan trips according to the locactions of WHS sites. That way we visited 18 sites in England 2018! And 28 sites on a trip to the Normandy. More trips like that are planned.

The German Televison produces short documentaries on each site, called Schätze der Welt, which I record and love to watch with the whole family. I recommend it to every WHS enthusiast.

Decorated cave of Pont d'Arc

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 24-Nov-22

Decorated cave of Pont d

February 2022 - after visiting Orange we drove through the marvelous Ardeche Valley. It should be on the Natural WHS list on its own. We stopped at numerous viewpoints to take good shots an memories back home. Of course we stopped at Pont d'Arc as well. The Natural Bridge on one side, the entrance to the cave in the back. A must-stop to see the actual core zone.

With my daughter I decided to enter as the Chauvet II theme park to get a better impression of the WHS. The visit took us several hours though. First the stone age exhibitions and finally the guided tour through the Replica.

The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 28-Mar-22

The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier

With wide foresight, we visited Maisons La Roche et Jeanneret when we made a  trip to Paris in 2008. We only visited it from outside though, and If I remember correctly it was under renovation as well. So not really a tick-off.

In February 2022 we went to Marseille by train. Due to storms in Germany we arrived 2 days late. So had only half a day to see Marseille

Wachau Cultural Landscape

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 06-Jan-22

Wachau Cultural Landscape

October 2021 - I had been several times to Vienna and also got to know the Donau between Vienna and Bratislava, but never managed to visit the Wachau. This time we came by camper and were here right during grape-harvest. So perfect time to have some „Sturms“. In the morning hours we entered Krems and walked around this rather calm, unexciting little town. Across the river in Mautern we visited remains of the Danube Limes but decided to continue on the north bank of the Donau again. Although crowded with tourists we parked in the vineyards of Dürnstein, had some wine and Vesper at a local Heuriger, before we walked through the charming little Austrian village. The cars are directed underneath the town, thus the view at the Donau is wonderful at this place

Telc

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 06-Jan-22

Telc

October 2021 - a short „1800km“ campertrip in fall brought us from Berlin to Wachau and back. We managed to see a few Whs sites of which Telc was one we looked forward to. At the end we only spent a bit more than an hour here. Not much to see apart from the beautiful Renaissance houses along the market, which is a idyllic  There are some Souvenir Shops, Restaurants and chinese trash shops. The park at the castle is also worth a visit.

We noticed anyway quite a number of international daytourists from Prague or on their way to Vienna. The parking lot was full of buses.
We found the nearby Slavonice, which we visited next morning more charming and original.

Ceský ráj (Czech Paradise) Rock Cities (T)

October 2021 - the Bohemian Paradise or the Saxonian Swiss we had visited a few times before and  fell in love. It definitely deserves a space on the WHS list. Now we had the chance to visit the nearby Czech paradise as well.

We arrived late in Turnov and [...]
