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.

Holasovice

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 28-Jun-20

Holasovice

September 2014 - I have quite good memory about this tiny picturesque village. I sent my parents here a year before with the remark that it is a WHS. When they came back, they were like "seriously?". I wanted to see it myself. After spending the morning in Pilsen and visiting the brewery we drove further to Cesky Krumlov. With a small detour you can easily visit holasovice on that Tour. We walked into the local Tourist Information, bought some Souvenirs (handmade Krtek christmas hangers) and meandered through the village. In the south east corner we bought a big jar of Honey, took some nice pictures and shortly after continued our drive to cesky Krumlov. The village is nicely preserved  and certainly a good example

Žatec – the Hops Town (T)

Žatec – the Hops Town (T)

September 2014 - I finished my studies and we bought an old VW Campervan to drive around Europe. So we switched to vanlife for  few weeks.

Starting our journey, we headed south via Dresden to Czechia. Our first Twhs was Zatec. Since I am a brewing scientist, I was happy to see finally a beer spot on the list. I was quite disappointed, when Mechtild Rössler read out on the Whs meeting the deferal of the "town of hope". Obviously she did not even know what hops is and that it is a fundamental ingredient for beer.

Ayutthaya

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 29-May-20

Ayutthaya

July 2016 - after visiting Sukhothai we took the night bus to Ayutthaya. The bus driver lkicked us out at 5:30 in the morning at the motorway and we still had about 4 km to walk to the temples. A french couple who was also in the bus joined us and we made the morning walk. When we arrived at the temples, the entry was still closed, and the sun just appeared at the horizon. We were exhausted and hungry, so jumped the fence and made us comfortable at the first temple for breakfast with the remaining crackers we had in our luggage. A few strolling dogs enjoyed our company and jumped around the ruins. That was definitely the highlight. Us, the dogs, dawn at the temples

Sukhothai

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 29-May-20

Sukhothai

July 2016 - actually Sukhothai was the worst experience of the two week trip for me. I suffered from food poisening and could not really enjoy the nice acient temples. But with some distance, i have quite good memory of the visit. We took the bus from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai and found a cosy guesthouse with pool in the town. Next morning I was not feeling well, but was urged to visit the nearby temples. Again with the option of borrowing bikes, we could see quite a selection of  temples. The location and the conservation of the temples add up to the nice experience. Nice palm trees and an exotic selection of birds made it a perfect scenery for spending a day.

Monuments, Sites and Cultural Landscape of Chiang Mai, Capital of Lanna (T)

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 29-May-20

Monuments, Sites and Cultural Landscape of Chiang Mai, Capital of Lanna (T)

July 2016 - after a few day sidetrip to Cambodia we headed north by bus to Chiang Mai. Its probably the capital of cats. In every corner, at every temple they were appearing and made for some nice pictures. In the one times one km of the old city there about 40 temples if i remeber correctly. We borrowed  bikes and took a whole day to visit as many as possible. some are marvelous, some are antique, some just have a nice atmosphere. Besides the temples there is also quite a lot of street art and it is a very green and quite city. Next day we drove up to Doi suthep, to see the winter palace and the most south-eastern  foothills of the Himalaya. for Thailand it was our highlight, and there would be much more to discover north of the city
