Jakob Frenzel Profile

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 even plan trips according to the locactions of WHS site, like we did in England 2018!

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 have to recommend it for every WHS enthusiast.

Francke Foundation Buildings (T)

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 04-Jul-19

Francke Foundation Buildings (T)

August 2018- our last stop on the roadtripbefore coming back to Berlin.

Halle is a nice East German city. It has stilla lot of remains from GDR, including old advertisements, lack of renovation, some socialist buildings. Definitely worse visiting. But then there is still the Freankesche Stiftung. An historic housing complex run by the church for living, working and learning.

A nice ensemble, but for WHS i do not think it is sigificant enough.

Luther Memorials

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 04-Jul-19

Luther Memorials

August 2018 - finally we visited the place where it begun and ended. Luthers Life!

The town is quite deserted, in the middle of nowhere, few young people not many shops, cafes etc, only some Luther museums.

The hot, dry summer made it even less attractive, But we were happy to have visited once. We did not pay the horendous entrance fees, but just had a glimspe from outside.

 Wittenberg, the place of work and sucess, is more interesting. Its locacted in a whs hotspot, next to the Elbe river and more significant concerning reformation. I have visited Wittenberg in 2006, 2010 and 2012. The Schlosskirche, the Melanchton house, the University, all interesting places to visit and important places in history.

Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe

Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe

August 2018 - on our way back to Berlin we still wanted to vist the remaining WHS. We always planned to visit Documenta Kassel at some point, but never made it. Now we had the chance to visit Kassel. We drove sträight to the top to visit Helcules and had a stunning view over the terraces and the whole park. We drove down to the park then and had another walk and views from thepark, up to the terraces. Unfortunely a lot of construction was going on at that time. We hope to come back at some point when it is more spectacular. Maybe documenta?

Upper Middle Rhine Valley

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 04-Jul-19

Upper Middle Rhine Valley

August 2018 - we started in Trier, drove along the Mosel and bought some fine wines to bring back to the family. In oder to not loose the whole day, we took a shortcut from Berkastel Kues to the Rhine and landed straight inside the cultural landscape in Bacharach. A beautiful small wooden framed town where we had good beer and Wurstsalat before driving slowly further north. First stop was at Burg Pfalzgrafenstein, called the Maus?, a former customs office inside the Rhine. Then we stopped again somewhere between Oberwesel and St. Goar, with great views at the Loreley, or rather the rock she sits at. Another stop was at Boppard and finally in Koblenz at the Deutsches Eck!

Trier

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 04-Jul-19

Trier

August 2018 - after our trip to France we finally arrived Germany again. The last few days we still wanted to visit the WHS sites that are on the road. And there were some more than we expected.

Trier is one of the oldest cities in Germany. The WHS is a combination of the roman and medieval sites, a nomination that would propbabaly not work anymore
