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.

Tarnowskie Góry Lead-Silver Mine

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 14-Aug-21

Tarnowskie Góry Lead-Silver Mine

July 2021 - we decided to visit family in South Poland and combine it with visiting the remaining WHS sites in Poland.after having spend half a day in Wroclaw and the Night. We drove straight to Tarnowskie Góry taking the road via Opole.Arriving at the shaft we were lucky that a next tour would start in 15 min. Our 2 year old daughter was very excited but the unnecessary movie as well as the Long explanations in the museum were not child friendly and also for us not really necessary. Finally we got our helmets and descended  to -40m. For the rather long hike we had to rush through the corridors. Every few seconds someone hit its head or helmet at the caves ceiling to the amusement of others. We took a few photos here and there but spotted nothing really interesting

Kronborg Castle

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 31-Mar-21

Kronborg Castle

August 2020 - before biking from Copenhagen to Berlin we spent 3 days in and around the city. After visiting the Parforce hunting park we took the train at the north entrance further to Kronborg. We got kicked out of the train, as our ticket was not valid and the bikes not included. But luckily the next train came 20min later. In Kronborg we walked a bit around the castle, took an obligatory hamlet picture and visited the near food hall with around 20 street food stands. I had been on a sailing trip in the Kattegat in 1999, so had been here before. The revisit was very pleasant though

Paseo del Prado and Buen Retiro

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 31-Mar-21

Paseo del Prado and Buen Retiro

April 2017 - at the end of our honeymoon trip through Andaluzia we took the train to Madrid and flew back from there. It was the same price as flying back from Sevilla directly. The Renfe entered Madrid early in the morning, we stored our baggage at the train station and took a long walk along the Prado and through the Retiro park. It was marathon that day so in the Park we could spot some athletes who either were done or gave up early. The park is nice, it has a giant lake, a wonderful greenhouse and some representative building, but I guess it is comparable to other city parks in Europe. We enjoyed way more Madrids early skyscrapers, the castle and our last tapas for that trip. Happy we visited another European capital, though.

Montado, Cultural Landscape (T)

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 27-Feb-21

Montado, Cultural Landscape (T)

October 2020  - we drove south from Lisbon to Vila nova Milfontes. We took the occasion and took the most scenic roads through the cork forests of montado. We were driving for a few hours and all we saw was dry plantations with cork trees. I am positive, that if it should become a WHS we passed the core zone at some point or another. I would be in favor of seeing this tremendous amount of cork shaping the landscape being recognized.

Par force hunting landscape

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 16-Feb-21

Par force hunting landscape

August 2020 - despite the Corona summer we decided to travel by bike and train to Denmark. We spent 3 days in Copenhagen. One morning we started at the Campground in Charlottenlund and drove the few km north to Jaegersborg Dyrehave. Once we crossed the wooden gates we were in a mystic beech forest with deer 🦌 running around freely. 
The open fields surrounding the Eremitage allow a wonderful view via this park onto the Baltic Sea. The Eremitage itself is a nice example for the hunting lodge architecture. The golf course is a pity on WHS ground though. We biked further north and eventually took the train to Kronborg.
