Thijs van den Berg.

Hello, my name is Thijs. I am from the Netherlands but "live" in Hawaii. I graduated in December 2014 from the University of Hawaii at Hilo with a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Studies. I am so passionate about world heritage sites. World Heritage sites are in danger due to climate change, war, environmental issues, poachers, vandals and more. So, I want to spread awareness of these dangers to World Heritage sites in order for people to understand the importance of their heritage. Once lost, never regained.

Van Nellefabriek

Thijs van den Berg United States - 21-Jun-15

I visited Van Nelle Factory on Day of Architecture (June 20 2015) in Rotterdam. On this day is this unique factory open for the public ! I got free tour for interior. My favorite part of this site is separate upstairs for men and women. This looks like on the one of tentative sites; Zonnestraal in Hilversum.

Primeval Beech Forests

Thijs van den Berg United States - 27-Mar-15

Jasmund National Parks is on Rugen. My ferry from Sweden was along Jasmund National Park so I really enjoy watching closer to Konigsstuhl and the part of the Jasmund National Park. There was also blue/ green water at this unique park. Stena Line has ferry service between Trelleborg, Sweden and Sassnitz, Germany daily. I should to visit this park in the next time but on foot in this park.

Stralsund and Wismar

Thijs van den Berg United States - 26-Mar-15

In Stralsund, I got a strong impression when I walked along the city wall of Knieperwall how big is Stralsund. There are also two beautiful gates; Kutertor and Kniepertor. The most beautiful building of Stralsund is Rathaus because of an architectural language. That identified as the Gothic of the region of Sund. This city has a lots of Swedish influence especially colors and style at houses. Building restoration is still under process in the historic center of Stralsund. The lookout from the tower of St Marien church is so beautiful ! Wismar is much smaller than Stralsund. The Bridge House, canal Grube, Furstenhof, St Mary's Church, Alter Schwede and Wasserkunst are my favorite attractions of Wismar. St Mary's Church is a landmark of Wismar because of the 80 metre high tower

Maulbronn Monastery

Thijs van den Berg United States - 11-Feb-15

I visited Maulbronn Monastery for few hours in 2010. It is isolated in the "Toscano of Germany". Visiting this monastery looks like walking back in the Middle Age because of 100% authentic feeling. I got strong impression of Monastery town-planning. It is not tourist place that makes worth to visit Maulbronn Monastery.
