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 site, that way we visited 18 sites in England 2018! And 28 sites on a trp to the Normandy and back.

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.

Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus District

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 12-Aug-19

Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus District

Although my uncle is living in Hamburg and I had been several times, I only visited the Speicherstadt and nearby Kontorhouse distric in July 2019 and March 2016.

It is quite interesting that the whole district has been closed for public a few decades ago and a big fence went around it. As Hamburg in no Freihafen anylonger, this beautiful distric can be enjoyed by everyone and recently the marvelous Elbphilarmony was added.

There is quite a lot of tourist things to do: Hamburg Dungen, The miniature railway museum, coffee roastery etc. etc. or you just stroll arond like we did both times. The district lack authenticity, since a lot of stuff was rebuild or put in between. However, the Chilehouse makes the WHS that remarkable

The Jewish Cemetery of Altona Königstrasse. Sephardic Sepulchral Culture of the 17th and 18th century between Europe and the Caribbean (T)

July 2019 - we visited my uncle in Hamburg. Of course it was a weekday and the cemetary was closed, but if you walk around it, you can see actaully everything, that you could see when going onto the cemetary.

I know the Berlin Jewish cemetray, of course the one in Prague and we have been to Trebic. I dont know whetehr this one is really all that special. Interesting the Iberian Quarter in Hamburg, that has to do with the Sephardic Jews that came here from Portugal.

Next time i will be here on a sunday and actually visit the cemetery.

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?
