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.

Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 04-Jan-23

July 2022 - Just after crossing the Simplonpass we entered Italy. As we had missed the Sacre Monti around the Lago di Como the last time we had it on our itinerary this time. Domodossola was pretty much the first town in the road coming from Switzerland. The Calvario depicts different steps in the life of Jesus, carved in wooden sculptures in different chapels. We were not the only people. But the place was quite abandoned and we had early Lunch on the lawn with takeaways from the local supermarket. Some of the chapels are in bad shape, but the sculptures are made with attention to many details.

Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 15-Dec-22

Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch

July 2022 - choosing the road via Switzerland was mainly due to visiting this magnificent Natural Wonder. There are two different approaches visiting this Site. Either from north via Grindelwald to experience the high Mountains Jungfrau, Eiger and Mönch, or coming from south to have a marvelous view at the Aletsch Glacier. We decided for the latter. We found a nice campground in Betten and still got the Aletschentdeckerpass (55CHF) which gives you unlimited rides in one day. Of you buy the Swiss Coupon Pass in advance you even get 2 for 1 and our children were included anyway.

Lavaux, Vineyard Terraces

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 13-Dec-22

July 2022 - when the vinyards were inscribed in 2007 I didn't even know that Switzerland is famous for wine as well. So far i thought only Chocolate and Cheese. None of them is honoured with a WHS. I was told though, that the wines around Lausanne are counting to the better ones.

We arrived in Vevey in the afternoon and were happy  for the opportunity to swim in  Lac Leman with probably one of the most beautiful panoramics. During summer it was crowded with people though and not Always comfortabel especially in the evening. The next day we walked to the impressive Nestle headquarter, which looks harmless regarding their worldwide business.

Old City of Berne

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 13-Dec-22

July 2022 - after spending the night in the closeby Emmental, where we of course tried some cheese,WE arrived in Bern at late morning. The most convenient parking is next to the bears. We entered the core zone at the Untertorbrücke, where some brave young people were doing jumps in to the icecold water of the Aare. We continued our stroll through the old town switching between the three parallel street until we arrived at the zytglogge. On the way back we crossed the market and tried probably the best ūü•ź we had so far. The cathedral and the nearby viewpoint are definitely the nicest places when visiting Bern. Before returning to the camper, we tried to spot some bears and I had a good (expensive) beer at the Tram Depot, which I definitely recommend

Reichenau

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 08-Dec-22

Reichenau

July 2022 - second day of our Roadtrip this was our evening goal. We were welcomed by the wonderful poplar avenue which marks the southern end of the Deutsche Alleenstraße.  We aimed at the only campground on the Island but fortunately left it again. A terrible place. The Islands official swimming beach offered free entrance and free shower.

The night we spent on one of the numerous parking lots, in the morning we still wanted to visit the third of the old churches. Unfortunately none of them was open during our visit, thus we missed on the islands OUV.  Everything else was rather boring. Later in our trip we visited Ile. St. honorat at Cannes. Probably a comparable site, which I would rather see on the WHS list.
