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!

Völklingen Ironworks

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 12-Jun-19

Völklingen Ironworks

August 2018 - What a site. After visiting Nancy and Metz that day, we still went back to germany and visited, for the first time, the Saarland. After more than a week in France with its beautiful medieval cathedrals, castles and towns, this industrial heritage was quite a switch during our trip. But this cathedral of steel is a masterpiece of human craftship. Just its size, and filigree details atthe same time.

The entrance fee is quite steep, but pay it, visit the Ironwork, it is amazing. You can climb up to the top, the view is stunning and you feel like a lego figurine trapped in a big wonderworld

Metz Royale et Impériale, enjeux de pouvoir, confrontations stylistiques et identité urbaine (T)

August 2018 - on our last day in France we visited Nacny in the morning and then Metz. It is quite a diverse city in terms of Architecture and cultural influence. We wanted to have some Lorraine lunch to begin with and had Quiche and Tarte Flambee in a small bistro.

Then we took some time to visit the city. We visited he main square with the houses with porticas, the cathedral, the Porte des Allemands, Saint-Pierre-aux-Nonnains and numerous little niches and modern artwork on the squares and parks. Due to the assemblance of different styles of history, I would appreciate to see this city on the WHS list sometime soon in the future.

Nancy

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 08-Jun-19

Nancy

August 2018 - After spending the day in and around Verdun we spent the night in Parc naturel régional de Lorraine on a nice campground next to the lake. Unfortunately it was a catastrophic night in terms of weather and our tent got flooded, parts of the campground had to be evacuated. So that morning we decided, that before we go back to Germany, we still take the tunr to see Nancy and Metz.

We arrived in Nancy early in the morning and parked in the vicinity of Place Stanislaw. The WHS is just a few squares and the connecting alleys, but its quite authentic and magnificent with its geometry. We did not spend much time though, since we planned a lot more that day. Nice city to walk around a bit and take some pictures

Reims

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 28-May-19

Reims

August 2018 - after drinking all the champgne we reached Reims. We passed St. Remi on the way to the town and parked somewhere close to the cacthedral.

From all the cactehrdals we visited on our trip. This was Nr.1 in terms of magnificenece and authenticity. We were amazed by the size and beauty of this building. After 20 min here we walked a bit further through the city. There are many nice Art Nouveau and some Bauhaus sites. There is an interesting post offices, a swimming pool etc.

There are many nice shops with good drinks or other specialtese from France. We looked  for some nice bistro, but again ended up with pain au chocolat. EAST of Reims the battlefiles of Grand Guerre are starting again, so no mile without passing a sign that says, cemetary, fort etc.

Champagne

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 28-May-19

Champagne

August 2018 - it was my birthday and we entered Epernay at around 10 am. Champagne, thats not just sparkling wine, there is style, inventor spirit  and history behind it. We could not just drive through the wineyards and tick the site of. On the Avenue de Champagne we passed numerous luxus brands and couldnt realy decide.

We visited Castellane and Mercier
